Alpha, also known as the Avatar of Power, is the presumed leader of the Avatars and, along with the Avatar of Force, the first Avatar to appear. He was the most powerful, visionary, and important member of all the Avatars, essentially making him at least their unofficial leader. He desired to create Utopia.
At first, Alpha and the Avatar of Force persuaded Cole to join them as an Avatar due to his massive amount of demonic powers. After becoming an Avatar, Cole instead attempted to create a reality where Phoebe loved him, despite Alpha's warnings. When Cole was vanquished, reality was restored and Alpha disappeared.
Tormenting Leo Wyatt
Two years later, the Avatars returned in the from of creature heads while tormenting Leo in an attempt to prepare and persuade him in joining their collective. Alpha appeared with Beta and Gamma and later revealed themselves in their true form. Leo ultimately joined the Avatars after Piper and Phoebe were killed by a Celerity Demon, granting him the power to resurrect them.
Alpha revealed their true intentions to Leo. The Avatars needed to persuade the Charmed Ones into combining their powers with the power of their collective in hopes of creating Utopia, a world existing beyond Good and Evil, where demons no longer existed.
Although Alpha and the other Avatars were successful into establishing Utopia, thanks to the Charmed Ones, Alpha's measures to keep Utopia going disturbed the sisters and his getting rid of Leo for creating conflict after Zankou showed him the truth about the Avatars, Alpha and the Collective caused Leo to vanish.
Leo then appeared to Phoebe who told her to remember all the pain that they encountered and tell her sisters they need to reverse Utopia. After combining forces with the demon Zankou, the Charmed Ones demanded Utopia be abolished and that Alpha and the other Avatars return the world to normal. After this was done, Alpha was never seen again.
