The Soul Drainer was a powerful demon who trapped its victims in an illusionary coma while draining their souls. It never spoke and never stopped grinning. It could only be vanquished with the Power of Three.


The Elders sent the Charmed Ones after the Soul Drainer and one of Phoebe's premonitions led them to an alley. They found the Soul Drainer with one of its victims and Piper blew it up. However, the Soul Drainer possessed her and trapped her in a illusionary world. In this world, it continued to stalk her until it had the opportunity to drain her soul. However, it was interrupted by the arrival of Phoebe. After leaning the truth, Piper cast the Soul Drainer out of her mind and the sisters vanquished it once she had awakened.


To Vanquish the Soul DrainerEdit

  • Requires the Power of Three.
He who trades in lies and feeds on pain,
No longer will your wicked lies remain
By the Power of Three we sisters decree,
Your creepy grin shall no longer be
