Fighting Qalmor to the death
The Master was an antagonist in the Samhain short story of the novel, Seasons of the Witch Vol. 1. The Master was an extremely powerful Upper-Level demon meant to fight his mortal enemy Qalmor to the death.
The Master was a powerful demon who despised another demon named Qalmor. The two had been at war with each other for thousands of years. While the Master built his power on numbers, Qalmor built his by collecting powers from witches. Every time he killed a witch, the Master challenged him and ended up stealing some of those powers half the time.
When Pamela Bousquet cast a love spell on Qalmor, the Master was furious with her for softening his favorite enemy, who lost the will to fight altogether. After Pamela's death, the Master had his minions steal Pamela Bousquet's Pendant.
Hundreds of years later, Pamela's spirit possessed one of her descendants, Phoebe Halliwell. The pendant reacted to this and the Master realized it was time to strike again. He kidnapped Pamela/Phoebe and used them as bait to draw out Qalmor. When Paige and Piper trapped him in a binding spell, the Master seized Pamela's pendant before it took effect and destroyed it (which also destroyed the love spell). Qalmor then undid the binding spell and the Master struck him with a deadly blow, this time killing his mortal enemy once and for all, but also vanquished himself in the process.

- There is an entry about the Master in the Book of Shadows. It is mentioned that he was an ancient demon with really strong magic, and no one knows how many powers he has. His sole existence was to fight the demon Qalmor. The only two ways to vanquish him were to either melt him in lava to prevent him from reconstituting, or by letting him fight Qalmor to the death, which will annihilate both parties no matter which one wins.
- His skin was seemingly impenetrable as Cole was unable to hurt him when he punched his jaw.
