.

Shiva is the Hindu God of Destruction and the consort of Shakti. It is said they created all things as they consummated their love, and that the universe will be destroyed and reborn if they consummate their love again.

HistoryEdit

Shortly after the birth of Chris, Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt attend a Hindu wedding after being pressured into it by Phoebe and Paige since Leo was too consumed with revenge and Piper refused to leave the newly-born Chris.

At the wedding, shortly after their arrival, two bright lights- presumably the life-force of the two Gods- appeared and flew into them. Piper suddenly grew four extra arms and became the Hindu goddess Shakti of creation and fertility. Leo turned into the God Shiva- the Hindu god of destruction and chaos and the lover (symbolic) of Shakti. Later Paige removed the gods from them with a spell.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As the God Shiva, Leo possessed many powers and abilities. He presumably also retained his Elder powers while possessed by the essence, as Piper still retained her wiccan powers.

Active Powers

  • Telekinesis: The ability to move objects with beings with the mind. Shiva possessed a powerful form of this power, as he was able to throw Inspector Sheridan across a room with high force and speed.
  • Electrokinesis: The ability to manipulate electricity and shoot lightning bolts from his hands.
  • Lightning Teleportation: A form of teleportation where the user transports in a flash of lightning.

Other Powers

  • Immortality: The ability to possess an infinite lifespan and an arrested aging process.
  • Immunity: The ability to be immune to certain powers, spells or potions.
  • Invincibility: The ability to be invincible.

Notes and Trivia Edit

  • The image of Shiva the Destroyer was famously evoked by J. Robert Oppenheimer in his description of his reaction to the successful atomic test for The Manhattan Project - "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of Worlds".
