Portrayed By

The Infernal Council was a group of five powerful upper-level demons presumably serving under either the Source of All Evil or the Triad. They appeared dressed in golden, cloaked robes with a Pentagram on the back. Shortly after the Halliwell sisters became the Charmed Ones, the Council became aware of their existence and sent many evil beings after them to kill them.


In 2000, the Infernal Council summoned a Dragon Warlock to kill the Charmed Ones after several earlier attempts have failed. To aid the Warlock, the council releases a Genie, who suggested distracting the sisters by giving them exactly what they wanted. However, some of the council members were distrustful of the Genie.

When the Genie Bottle arrives at the manor, the sisters accidentally free the Genie and he tricks them into making wishes. Their wishes cause Phoebe Halliwell to obtain the power of flight from the Dragon Warlock, Dan Gordon to rapidly grow old and Prue Halliwell to revert to her teenage self.

When the Dragon Warlock appeared at the manor, Piper Halliwell managed to freeze him and Phoebe used his own power to fly him far away from the manor. The Council then summoned both the Warlock and the Genie to them and the Warlock accused the Genie of working against him. The Genie then suggested going after the powerless Prue.

The Dragon Warlock abducted Prue and killed her when her sisters tried to rescue her. Seeing what he caused, the Genie admitted what he had done and reversed all wishes. However, this did not bring Prue back to life as they had hoped. When the Dragon Warlock attacked again, Phoebe released the Genie again and wished for Prue to be alive again. The Charmed Ones then vanquished the Dragon Warlock and wished for the Genie to be free, making him mortal and protecting him from the Council.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • The Infernal Council is very similar to and sometimes confused with the Triad, who were introduced in the following season. It is unknown what became of the five members of the Council.
  • Another Council appeared near the end of Season 4 during Cole Turner's coronation as the Source of All Evil and during the coronation of the Seer. Many demon councils and their leaders were present for the latter, possibly including the Infernal Council. All these demons were vanquished along with the Seer.


The Infernal Council appeared in a total of 1 episode throughout the course of the series.
