Tempus, also known as The Devil's Sorcerer, was a powerful and respected Demonic Sorcerer with the ability to manipulate time. He answered directly to The Source of All Evil.

HistoryEdit

Helping RodriguezEdit

Tempus was sent by the Source in 1999 to help the demon known as "Rodriguez", to defeat the Charmed Ones. Every time Rodriguez failed to kill them and got vanquished, Tempus reset time, allowing Rodriguez to be resurrected and learn from his mistakes, giving him another chance.

Tempus and Rodriguez were the only ones who knew about this, until Phoebe started having a strange sense of deja vu and began to feel that they were in a Time Loop, which she theorized because of her power of Premonition.

Defeated by the Charmed OnesEdit

Rodriguez killed Andy Trudeau, and once the sisters figured out what had been happening, they cast a spell to accelerate time, therefore breaking the time loop and taking Tempus out of his time. Tempus, temporally defeated by the Charmed Ones, fled back to the Underworld and Rodriguez was vanquished by Prue telekinetically deflecting his Energy Ball.

DeathEdit

In 2001, the Charmed Ones and Shax were exposed on live television. The sisters figured they needed to contact Tempus to reset time to before they were exposed, but none of them knew how. Their Whitelighter, Leo, decided to go to the Underworld, and ask Cole Turner to get The Source to contact Tempus, bearing in mind that exposure is still a problem for evil.

Once Cole asked The Source, The Source stated that Tempus was still weakened from his last encounter with The Charmed Ones, and doing so again could destroy him. But later The Source accepts their offer, after making a deal with Phoebe for her to stay in the Underworld, and had Tempus to reset time, which killed him once and for all. (All Hell Breaks Loose)

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Tempus is Latin for Time.
  • Tempus has never met the Charmed Ones in person.
  • In 2006, the demon Dillon asked a Female Possessor Demon who she was trying to resurrect. One of his guesses was Tempus.
  • The Book of Shadows entry shown for Tempus in this episode has a typo. The entry reads "remove him from the time his in" instead of "he is in".
