- "You're the only woman I've ever loved, Daisy, and now I'm the last man you'll ever leave."
- —Alec to Daisy before attempting to kill her.[src]
Alec was the first Darklighter the Charmed Ones encountered. Alec fell in love with a Future Whitelighter named Daisy, whom he was assigned to impregnate to spread evil through his offspring. He was vanquished by Prue Halliwell, who switched powers with him and killed him with his own Touch of Death.
Falling in Love
Alec was assigned to impregnate Daisy, so as to increase the Darklighter population. He got close to her, and in the end, fell in love with her. He even took her out to a mountain on a holiday trip, where she confessed her love to him. But later on, Daisy found out that he was a truly evil being, and left him despite the fact that he truly loved her.
Daisy was later identified to be a future Whitelighter and Leo Wyatt was assigned to guide her. Leo hid Daisy from Alec, and so he was unable to see or sense her. Knowing that his death would reverse the effect, Alec shot Leo with a Darklighter poison arrow.
By fatally wounding Leo, the cloaking magic he put on Daisy began to weaken, allowing him to find her at her motel and later at the bus station. He was about to take her when Prue and Phoebe intervened and took Daisy away. Eventually, he tracked Daisy to the manor and captured her.
Alec brought Daisy to an altar in Golden Gate Park where he decided to kill her. However, Prue and Phoebe arrived in time to stop him. Prue then swapped powers with him, which rendered him powerless (as she had Phoebe's power at the time). Using his own power against him, Prue managed to vanquish him, switching back their powers at the last second.

Notes and Trivia
- Alec was presumably a powerful Darklighter, as he used unique powers that no other Darklighter would use again later in the series.
- Although Leo and the sisters mentioned he could only be vanquished by the Power of Three, Alec was vanquished by Prue with his own power.
- The relationship between Alec and Daisy could be seen as a precursor to Cole and Phoebe's relationship. Both Alec and Cole were evil beings who ultimately ended up falling for their respective targets.
- The way that Alec died is similar to the way that Javna, the first demon that the sisters encountered, met his fate.
Alec appeared in a total of 1 episode over the course of the series.
