Simon Thaddeus Reginald Marks is a British Whitelighter-Witch from the Marks line of witches, a self-described "noble and very powerful witch family". The Marks family worked closely with Melinda Warren during the Salem Witch trials.
According to his family's scroll, Simon sought out oracles and soothsayers to help him find his destiny and place in the world. This led him to Halliwell Manor in San Francisco to the foot of Paige Matthews.
Simon arrived at the manor convinced that he and Paige were meant to wed. According to him, this was claimed by forty oracles and soothsayers, and some wizards. Also, thinking that if they were to wed, their offspring would be very powerful. Paige refused, telling him she already had a boyfriend. Simon then tried everything to convince her to leave "Harry", as he thought that a mortal wouldn't fully understand magic.
Simon tracked down Henry at his work and tried to convince him that he was a liability to Paige, since her fear of him getting hurt by a magical attack would make it impossible for her to be truly honest with him. When Henry told Simon that he was Paige's boyfriend and he wasn't going to back down, Simon challenged him to a duel. However, Simon unfairly used magic in the duel.
After the duel, Henry tells Simon that he truly loves Paige and notices the little parts of her personality that Simon wouldn't, since he is only concerned about being the "Ultimate Power Couple". When Simon began to protest, Henry punched him and Paige later orbed Simon away.
