Hunting and killing witches
Witch Hunters are mortal vigilantes who hunt down witches and kill them without trial. They are known to develop a sense of hatred towards witches, magical or practitioners, because of what they can do and their gifts.
A troupe of witch hunters patrolled the colonial Virginia village where Melinda Warren was born. Unknown to the rest of the village, their commander, Ruth Cobb, was an evil witch herself. She was actually using the witch hunters to pick off the village's good witches. Among them was a hunter named Micah, who was aware of Ruth's evil and tried to help the Charmed Ones when they went to the past.
Agent Jackman was a descendant of the colonial witch hunters. In 2002, he tricked the Charmed Ones into capturing Selena, the daughter of a witch. The girl herself wasn't a witch, but she had magical blood inside her. Although Jackman himself was mortal, he used amulets against witches' magic. He was killed by his own bullet, due to Cole Turner switching him and Phoebe around when he tried to shoot her.
