Swallowing demonic children
The Nothing is a supernatural force that exists within a pocket dimension in the Ice Cream Truck. It is an unstoppable entity that absorbs all magical beings trapped in its domain, whether good or evil.
The pocket dimension within the truck resembles a snow-covered playground. Although its presence and arrival can be felt, the Nothing is never seen. When it devours a victim, they are pulled into a hole in the sky.
During her youth, Prue Halliwell was targeted by the Nothing after accidentally being sucked into the truck, though she was rescued by her father. In 2001, Prue and Phoebe became trapped inside the truck again and unknowingly freed the demonic children within. Prue and Victor later entered the truck to find the Ice Cream Man, though he sacrificed himself so they could escape with the crystal needed to play the Devil's Chord.
