Magical NotesEdit

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.

The SeerEdit

An upper level
demon who has
been around for
thousands of
years. Because she
has the power to
see the future, she
is a top advisor to
the Source of all
Evil. In fact, she has served multiple Sources, choosing to
remain close to the ultimate power. She is a magical craftsman and
master at spells and tonics, but only kills when she has to.


  • Paige casts the Vanishing spell to clean up the destroyed penthouse.
  • The Seer casts a spell to take Phoebe's unborn baby from her.
  • Phoebe casts the "To Call a Lost Witch" spell to summon Piper to the magical cage.
  • The Charmed Ones cast the "Power of Three" spell

The Power of Three SpellEdit

The power of three will set us free
The power of three will set us free
The power of three will set us free

To Call a Lost WitchEdit

Power of the witches rise
Course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
Come to us and settle here.

Vanishing SpellEdit

Let the Object
of Objection
Become but
a Dream
As I cause
the Seen
to be Unseen

To Steal an Unborn ChildEdit

Let the little children come to me,
for the kingdom belongs to such as these,
give me strength, and give me might,
to steal a child in still of night.
Darkest forces, let it be,
Hear my plea, bring life to me
