The Tall Man was a powerful demon who was believed to be impossible to be vanquished. His body served as a dimensional portal. The Source of All Evil himself felt so threatened by him, that he ordered The Seer to forge a magical cage to imprison the Tall Man for all eternity.
Centuries ago, the Source of All Evil felt threatened by the Tall Man, but was unable to vanquish him. In order to secure his position as Ruler of the Underworld, he ordered The Seer to forge a cage powerful enough to hold the Tall Man for all eternity.
Release from the CageEdit
The Seer freed the Tall Man after the Source was vanquished in order to obtain Phoebe Halliwell's unborn child. The Tall Man then teleported to the manor to take Phoebe, but her unborn child took over her body and kicked Paige through the Tall Man, teleporting her to the cage instead.
The Tall Man later tried to take Phoebe again, but she tapped into the power of her unborn child and vanquished him, which was believed to be impossible.

Book of ShadowsEdit
The Tall ManEdit
Oral tradition tales of a giant
whose body served as a
portal to other dimensions.
Because he was imprisoned
centuries ago, nobody knows
what this demon's name is
or if he even exists. There's
no known vanquish for him.
The Source was so threatened,
by him, he condemned the giant to
spend eternity in a cage.
Notes and TriviaEdit
- The alternate Book of Shadows page for the Tall Man is "The Thin Man", which could have been a reference to the film-noir of the same name.
- The Tall Man didn't know who the Charmed Ones were, presumably due to his imprisonment.
