Coyote Piper

Portrayed By

Terra was a Life Essence created by the Alchemist Kierkan. She wanted a more independent life, and escaped from Kierkan's lair in order to possess one of the Charmed Ones and vanquish him.

She possessed a businessman and forced him to lead her to the sisters and later managed to possess Piper Halliwell. She succeeded in vanquishing Kierkan, but was later vanquished herself when she was discovered.


Escaping Kierkan's LairEdit

Kierkan took Terra's desire for independence for ingratitude, since he created her out of his blood. Terra thought he saw her as just his masterpiece. Just as Kierkan was about to suck Terra back into her essence bearer, Terra stabbed herself with a knife—the only way she knew to leave a body—and floated away.

Possessing The BusinessmanEdit

Believing that possessing a Charmed One was the fastest route to greater power, she possessed a businessman in the street. His soul was now only seen by Terra through a mirror. She told him to bring her to the Charmed Ones. At the manor, the man begged Terra to get out of his body, as that he was starting to suffocate. Terra curtly refused, pointing out that the suffocating feeling was because his soul was dying.

Possessing Piper HalliwellEdit

While at her 10 year reunion at P3, Piper took out the trash. Terra, still in the businessman's body, followed her out and stabbed herself with a knife. As Piper bent down to help, Terra possessed her.

Back in the club, Piper communicated with Terra via a mirror, since Terra was the only one to actually see her soul. After standing up to one of Piper's classmates, Piper summoned enough strength to warn Prue that something was wrong. Just as Piper was about to explain, Terra regained control, acted like nothing happened and went back to the manor. Meanwhile, Kierkan found the businessman's body and brought him back to life long enough to find out where Terra went.

Terra tried to get Piper to tell her what her powers were, knowing that Kierkan was after her. Piper refused unless Terra left her body. Terra called P3 and told Prue that there was a demon in the manor. Prue suggested that Piper freeze the demon until she and Phoebe could get back. Terra was visibly intrigued, and threatened to kill Phoebe and Prue if she didn't tell her where the Book of Shadows was. After obtaining the spell, Kierkan broke into the manor and knocked Terra down. He intended to suck Terra back into her essence bearer. Before Kierkan could finish her off, however, Terra froze him. Prue and Phoebe then came home and they chanted a Power of Three spell to vanquish Kierkan. As Kierkan went up in flames, he told Prue and Phoebe that he could have helped them—but now "she" is about to destroy them.

The sisters went to the attic, suspecting that a female demon was after them—not knowing that the "demon" was in Piper's body. As Terra began to leave the attic, Piper once again gained control over her body and voiced weakly to Prue that she was dying, but Terra made up another excuse to get out of the room. By this time, Terra was determined to stay in Piper's body, knowing that Piper's soul was starting to burn out. When Piper begged her to leave, Terra reminded her that the only way she could do so is with a knife to the heart. Piper saw Leo orbing into her bedroom, and told Terra that her boyfriend "Tom" would know something was amiss. When Leo kissed Terra, he noticed that her kisses weren't the same. Terra blasted him with an Energy Beam, knocking him out. Terra then went to P3 and started seductively dancing on the bar, giving guys drinks as she went along.

By this time, Prue and Phoebe realized that Piper was possessed, and rushed to the club. They tried to get Terra out of Piper with a spell they wrote, but the spell required the Power of Three. Terra reminded them that since she was created from Kierkan's blood, she had an alchemist's powers—making her equivalent in strength to an upper-level demon, and with the power of a Charmed One, she was even more powerful. She tried to head back to the party, but Prue flung Terra onto the dumpster. Terra went back inside and Prue knocked her out by knocking her over the back of the head. They brought her back to the manor, and Prue flung a knife into her stomach, releasing Terra's essence.

Possessing Leo WyattEdit

After Prue stabbed Terra, Leo rushed over to her aid. Terra's essence then floated out of Piper's body and possessed Leo. This was actually part of Prue's plan; she figured that since Terra has an alchemist's powers, she could bring Piper back to life. Prue offered to let Terra keep Leo's body if she brought Piper back to life; otherwise, she would go back in the essence bearer. Terra reluctantly agreed and resurrected Piper. She then destroyed the essence bearer. The sisters then used the spell Prue and Phoebe wrote earlier to eject Terra from Leo. Terra realized she had been double-crossed and, knowing that she wouldn't be strong enough to resist the spell now that she was outside of Piper's body, tried to blast the sisters, but Prue deflected the attack into a mirror. Terra's essence was then expelled and automatically vanquished because she could not survive without a body.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Basic Powers
  • Spell Casting: The ability to cast spells and perform rituals.
  • Mediumship: The ability to see and commune with spirits of the dead. Terra could communicate with her host's souls via reflective surfaces.
Active Powers
  • Possession: The ability to take control of another body by entering it. As a Life Essence, Terra needed a host to survive and could possess a being by entering their bodies. Once she possessed a body, Terra also gained access to that being's powers while retaining her own powers.
    • Soul Killing: As a Life Essence was toxic to the body, the host's preexisting soul would die if Terra did not leave the body within the next couple of hours.
  • Energy Beams: The ability to fire deadly beams of energy from one's hands. Terra could fire a powerful beam of yellow energy that had great destructive and concussive force, as she was able to blast Leo Wyatt against a wall with great force.
  • Resurrection: The ability to bring the deceased back to life. Since Kierkan created Terra from his blood, she had access to all his powers. While possessing Leo, Terra used this power to resurrect Piper after she had been stabbed to expel Terra from her body.
Other Powers
  • High Resistance: The ability to be highly resistant to physical and magical harm.
  • Immortality: The ability to live an infinite lifespan.
  • Immunity: The ability to be ineffective to certain powers. She was immune to spells of witches while possessing Piper.
Through possession
  • Piper Halliwell's Powers: When Terra possessed Piper, she gained access to all her powers. After figuring out how to use it, she managed to freeze Kierkan with Molecular Immobilization and later channeled the Power of Three with 'her sisters' to vanquish her creator.
  • Leo Wyatt's Powers: When Terra possessed Leo, she gained access to his Whitelighter powers. However, she never used them in the brief time she possessed him.
