The Eyes Have It

Portrayed By

Lorna Raver

" Nobody knew more about them than Teresa. She was like the holy woman of the tribe. She always made sure that traditions were passed down from mother to daughter."
Ava Nicolae talking about Teresa.[src]

Teresa was a Romani gypsy who owned a fortune telling shop in San Francisco, where she offered palm readings to customers. At the store, she referred to herself as Madame Teresa. She was a Shuvani of the Nicolae tribe and believed in passing on traditions.


Decades ago, Teresa participated in the cursing of the Gypsy Hunter, Orin, blinding him so that he could no longer hunt and kill gypsies.

In 2002, Teresa was visited by Phoebe Halliwell, who was having trouble with her powers. As Teresa read her palms, she somehow intercepted a premonition. She quickly forced Phoebe to leave and called her friend Lydia Nicolae to warn her. She had foreseen that Orin would be coming for her and worried that Lydia would be next. Before she could end the conversation, Teresa was confronted by Cree, who proceeded to kill her and take her eyes for his father Orin.

When performing a variant of the "To Call Upon Our Ancestors", Ava called upon Teresa as one of her ancestors. Teresa's spirit was presumably one of the ones that showed up to help vanquish Orin.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Basic Powers
  • Spell Casting: The ability to cast spells and perform rituals.
  • Potion Making: The ability to brew potions.
  • Mediumship: The ability to see the spirits of the deceased. Gypsies refer to these apparitions as a "Mulo", which is viewed as an omen or warning.
Active Powers
  • Divination: The ability to predict the future. Teresa was able to divine that Phoebe was a witch with the power of premonitions, some of her character traits, and that her power was blocked due to stress and overworking.
  • Channeling: The ability to channel the powers of others to the point where users can take control of activated powers and use them for themselves. Teresa channeled a premonition that was meant for Phoebe, and through it foresaw that a Gypsy Hunter was coming for her.


Teresa appeared in a total of 1 episode throughout the course of the series.
