Witch Doctors are the watchdogs of evil and considered agents of good. They take great pride in their work of expelling evil spirits, made up usually by residual energy left from vanquished demons and other dead beings.
Working with Paige
Paige mentioned working with some of them after she was followed home to the manor by a Borneo Demon. When Piper blew up the demon, Paige said she could not wait to report back to the s about these demons not being impervious to magical powers.
Hexing the Charmed Ones
In 2003, the Charmed Ones found out the manor was overrun with the residual energy of all the demons they vanquished. Unable to get rid of it, they summoned a witch dictor. He managed to expel the spirits, but he suspected that all the evil the sisters attracted would eventually overwhelm the good in them.
For this reason, he and his colleagues decided that the Charmed Ones had to be eliminated. He gathered a few of their personal effects and a picture of all three of them, which he used to put a hex on the sisters that would cause their obsessions to consume and hopefully destroy them. As part of the hex, Piper became obsessed with cleaning, Paige became obsessed with Glen, who was about to get married, and Phoebe became obsessed with her rivalry with the sexist male advice columnist, Spencer Ricks.
When Piper and Paige overcame their hexes after realizing their obsessions had hurt others, they confronted the Witch Doctors. They explained that while they might not be perfect, getting rid of them would cause more problems then solutions. They then threatened to vanquish the Witch Doctors if they did not reverse the hex on Phoebe, which they did.
