Whatever Happened to the Demon with a Soul?

"So this is what it feels like to win."
—Valen in his final moments.[src]

Valen was a low-level demon seeking to destroy the Charmed Ones. He worked with another demon named Fritz until the latter was vanquished. He was later vanquished himself.


Spying on the Sisters

After Fritz reported back to him about the battle between the Charmed Ones and Gaxageal, Valen concluded that the Halliwells are unique due to their ability to evade death. He then asked Fritz if he knew about the Ancient Athame, a weapon capable of killing souls. When Fritz replied it was just a legend, Valen admitted that he knew its location.

The Ancient Athame

Valen and Fritz sought out a demon named Murray and obtained a book leading them to the Ancient Athame. They proceeded to attack a Leprechaun and stole some shillelaghs in order to draw from their magical power. After obtaining the athame, the demons headed to the Halliwell Manor, where they were confronted by Cole Turner. Valen tried to kill Cole with the blade, but missed. After Piper arrived and vanquished Fritz, Valen retrieved the blade and escaped.

In order to activate the Ancient Athame, Valen proceeded to gather the blood of a witch and an innocent, as well as his own. Knowing that he only needed the blood of someone caught between life and death, he targeted the Angel of Death at the site of a car crash and stabbed him.

Final Confrontation

After activating the athame, Valen captured Paige's charge Aidel and used him as leverage to lure the sisters to a cemetery. Once there, he cast a spell to raise the undead to overwhelm the sisters. When Aidel attempted to stop him, Valen decided to kill him, though he was interrupted by Coop. Using his shillelagh, Valen froze Coop and threw the athame at him. Seeing this, Cole pushed Coop out of the way, causing the athame to hit him instead.

After killing Cole, Valen began gloating about his success and was blasted back by Piper. When he got back up, he hit Piper with an energy blast. Paige then orbed the athame at him, though Valen stopped it mid-air. Piper told her sisters to cast the depowering spell while Valen charged at Phoebe. The spell took effect before he could stab her and it destroyed his shillelagh. Without his magical conduit, the athame overwhelmed Valen and destroyed him. However, because of his victory over Cole, Valen went out with a proud smirk.
