Evil training academy


Train and transform mortals into demons within six years


The Academy was headed by Kellman


San Francisco


The Academy is a brutal six-year training program that transforms mortals into demons by destroying their humanity. It was run by Kellman, who posed as a sports agent to recruit potential demons.

Training comprises challenges set forth in demonic wrestling rings, how to attack innocents, and how to avoid being detected by good witches. As training progresses and their humanity fades away, these mortals earn chevrons to signify their progress. Once a mortal earns his sixth chevron by killing an innocent, he becomes a full-fledged demon. These demons seemingly retain their souls, though any human emotions are suppressed through the training.

A mortal who becomes a demon in this manner can earn more chevrons and additional powers if they render great service to the Source of All Evil.


In 2001, the Charmed Ones became aware of the existence of the Academy when a former boyfriend of Prue, Tom Peters, was revealed to be trained there. The sisters set out to free him and Kellman was later vanquished by Tom himself. It is unknown what happened to the Academy after Kellman was vanquished.[1]

The AcademyEdit

It is our belief that humans who enter into demonic
contracts can be recruited into the Academy.
This is the means by which The Source creates new
Demons. The subject must survive a grueling
physical ordeal to be admitted to the Academy.
Following admittance, the subject begins a long and
brutal training program which destroys Humanity
and renders the subject Demonic. Upon completion of
the program, the subject must kill an innocent in order
to prove that the Demonic Conversion is complete.
Chevrons are earned as training progresses. Five
chevrons are earned in the course of Academic study.
A sixth chevron, awarded for the death of an
innocent, indicates the Demonic Conversion is
complete. Additional chevrons represent great service
to The Source and the increased Powers that are
Bestowed in return.
