Advisor to the Source of All Evil
The Seer was an upper-level demon with the power to see the future and was the surrogate mother of the Source's Heir. She had been thousands of years old and had served several Sources. She served as the primary advisor to the Source of All Evil after the Oracle was vanquished by Cole Turner.
The Seer had many powers, some of which included premonition and glistening. She was immune to spells and charms, and could only be vanquished by the Power of Three. She was portrayed as a devious woman and demon with her own evil plans and agenda.
The Seer was introduced warning the Source against unleashing The Hollow, prophesizing that if he did so, everything would be destroyed and nothing would be left of the world, and soon after coaxing Cole into taking in the Hollow in order to protect Phoebe. After helping to destroy the Source, the Seer sealed the Hollow back into its box with the aid of Phoebe.
Vision of The Source's DestructionEdit
The Seer had foreseen the Source's demise, should he take in the Hollow, and tried to warn him several times. It is plausible that the Seer foresaw the events that would take place after the Source's demise. The occurrences leading up to Phoebe's pregnancy with Cole's child were presumably foreseen as well. It's likely that her plan to become the new Source was formed after receiving this vision.
Making Cole the SourceEdit
What neither Cole nor the Charmed Ones know is that the Seer secretly intended for Cole to become the next Source. She knew that there was a void in Cole's soul where Belthazor had once been, and believed that the Source would enter that void and completely take him over. After Cole realizes that he has taken on the Source's powers, the Seer acts as his principal advisor. She initially opposed Cole's determination to make Phoebe his queen, though she helped him trick Phoebe into marrying him in a dark wedding so that his son would be born evil. While Cole believed he could use Phoebe's love for him to turn her evil (or at least separate her from her sisters), the Seer thought Phoebe's love could sway Cole away from evil.
Serving the new SourceEdit
Unknown to Cole, the Seer engineered two attempts to kill Phoebe in hopes that he would make her his queen instead. She tricked Kurzon, a longtime rival of the Source, into going after Phoebe with promises that he would be crowned as the next Source. On the day of Cole and Phoebe's wedding, she unearthed a Lazarus Demon and secretly ordered him to kill Phoebe. When that plan failed, she tricked Cole into hiring a female upper-level demon, Julie, as his personal assistant. She hoped that Julie would seduce Cole away from Phoebe. It was only on the eve of Cole's coronation as the Source that the Seer finally decided to support Phoebe as the new Queen. Cole was on the verge of giving up his powers after Phoebe inadvertently found out that he was a demon again, but the Seer convinced Phoebe that Cole needed her by his side.
Soon after his coronation, Cole ordered the Seer to give Phoebe a tonic that would not only strengthen her baby son, but destroy Phoebe's good side as well. When Phoebe found out about this, as well as the fact that Cole killed an innocent her sisters were protecting, she renounced her crown and joined her sisters in vanquishing Cole.
Stealing The Source's HeirEdit
In the episode "Womb Raider," the Seer steals Phoebe's unborn child - the heir of the Source of All Evil, and transfers it into her body by use of a spell. She is vanquished soon after when she attempts to kill the Charmed Ones, as she could not handle all of the baby's power. All the while, the sisters chant the Power of Three spell, which creates a protective shield around the cage, saving the sisters from being killed by the Seer and at the same time, forcing the Seer to tap into all of the baby's power. The Seer destroys not only herself, but also The Infernal Council and every demon in attendance at the coronation. Before her death, she tells Phoebe that the child was never Phoebe's nor Cole's, but hers from moment of conception.
After his return from the Demonic Wasteland, Cole Turner joined forces with the Avatars in a last desperate attempt to get Phoebe back. With his newfound power, he created a reality where the Power of Three was never reconstituted by Paige Matthews.
In this alternate reality, Cole was Belthazor once again and served directly under the Source of All Evil. The Seer acted as his personal advisor and vanquished a demon who made a joke about Cole's age at his birthday party. As in the original reality, she claimed to have foreseen that Cole and Phoebe would conceive a powerful heir if they remained together, but it is unclear if she still had an unknown long-term agenda.

Notes and TriviaEdit
- The Seer has a friend who works with Wind. When Phoebe as the Queen of the Underworld wanted the storm outside to stop, the Seer said her friend was out of town.
- The drawing of the Seer in the Book of Shadows is based on her promotional picture. This promotional picture was a cropped version of the picture with Alyssa Milano from Marry-Go-Round (see picture)
- She is the first Seer to appear in the show and the only one who appears for more than 3 episodes.
- She is the first female villain significant to the storyline, as well as the first female Source.
- Although The Seer had the power to see the future, she did not foresee her own death such as Seer Kyra did.
- Every Seer in the series can be explained as wise, but can also be explained as distrusted and disliked by their own kind. The Source's trust of The Seer is what also led to his demise.
- It is possible that the Seer had an actual name like Kyra, who was a demonic seer and was also known as "The Seer", until she wanted to become human and revealed her actual name.
- In the dubbing in Latin Spanish, her name is seer, a translation error since her name should be "La Vidente" which in English means the seer.
