Fighting against Aplacum
Vandalus was one of the most violent, destructive demons of the underworld, and fought for centuries against his arch-nemesis, Aplacum, for domination of the dimensions. If one ever killed the other, the vanquishing demon would reign supreme, bringing untold horrors to humanity. Fortunately, the Elders were able to lure Vandalus away from his loyal minions long enough to cast a powerful spell on him, banishing him to Earth in the early 19th century in human form.
In his demonic form, he was a great hulking creature with a face that looked like having been mummified for a thousand years. He shows deep fleshy wrinkles, hundreds of sharp teeth and has blank black eyes. In his human form, however, Vandalus's name was Micah Grant, and extremely attractive: tall, broad-shouldered, slim, dark-haired and blue-eyed.
To escape and become Vandalus again, he needed a kiss of true love to restore his powers. Vandalus would hypnotize children and train them so they become part of his army. Even in his human state, he can manipulate human minds at will.
After his rival was vanquished by the Charmed Ones, Phoebe later speculated that she received her premonition to prevent Vandalus's current 'love interest' being killed in the crossfire. Vandalus was able to trick Paige into becoming his new paramour, eventually trapping her in his garden behind a seemingly impenetrable magical barrier, allowing him time to use his power to win her over to fall in love with him. Fortunately, before the spell was complete, Piper and Phoebe were able to penetrate the barrier by travelling with Cole via shimmering rather than Leo's orbing—as Cole's power came from evil, the barrier was unable to deflect him as Vandalus had only erected it to keep out good magic—allowing them time to get through to Paige and convince her to help them vanquish Vandalus.
