"There's one more battle on the horizon for you three, one unlike you've ever faced before, one you won't see coming and one, you may not survive."
—An Angel to The sisters.[src]

The Angels of Destiny are the immortal protectors and overseers of all Destinies who maintain the Grand Design, ensuring that no one alters it unnaturally. They are portrayed as ethereal, graceful magical beings of the highest rank. They are, by nature, neutral as Destiny can alter both Good and Evil designs. In the hierarchy of Gods and Demi-Gods, they rank higher than the Angel of Death, the Elders, the Cleaners, the Tribunal and the Avatars.

In a conversation with the Charmed Ones, an Angel of Destiny may have suggested that there are Gods who are the creators of all destinies. However, Phoebe interrupted the Angel's conversation.[1]


Changing Destiny[]

After the Charmed Ones vanquished Cole Turner during his time as the Source of All Evil, an Angel of Destiny froze time and offered the sisters a chance to relinquish their powers and live mortal lives. Initially, Phoebe and Piper Halliwell were both ready to accept the deal despite the protests of Paige, but when an FBI agent and Witch Hunter named Jackman tricked them into capturing a witch for him and then almost killed them, they once again realized their fondness for witchcraft and changed their minds.[2]

The Ultimate Battle[]


Angel Of Destiny in season 8.

A different Angel was summoned by the sisters after Piper learned from the Angel of Death, an Elder and an Avatar that Leo was meant to die. The Angel revealed that Leo's death was meant to motivate them to fight the Ultimate Battle, though the sisters made a deal instead. Leo was frozen in ice by the demon Burke and taken away by the Angel, to be returned once the battle was won.[3]

Once the sisters fought Billie and Christy Jenkins, leaving only Piper and Billie as survivors, the Angel returned Leo. She commented that she had not expected it to end this way.[4] However, she was forced to take him away again when both witches traveled back in time to undo what had happened. Leo was once again returned after Billie realized her mistake and joined the sisters to vanquish the Triad and Christy. The Angel then revealed it was meant to end like this all along.[5]

Some time later, the same Angel also performed the wedding ceremony of Phoebe and Coop Halliwell at Magic School.[6]

Battle Against Neena[]

The three Angels of Destiny.

A third Angel confronted Neena and Hogan in a nightclub, telling them their actions were not part of the Grand Design. Neena responded by sending her through a portal to an unknown location.[7] The same Angel later met Piper Halliwell after she had been sent to another realm by Neena as well. However, she managed to escape shortly after Piper arrived.[8]

After the battle against Neena in the Heavens, three Angels appeared. They realized the errors of tampering with people's lives after understanding it was the entire reason why Neena had brought about the apocalypse. The Angels then absolved all potential destinies, negating the prophecy of the Twice-Blessed Child and the tampering of the Elders.

The Angels were forced to punish Neena and banished her to her failed attempt at a higher realm. As a compromise, they allowed her beloved to leave the Higher Plane of The All and be with her for six months out of the year.[9]

The three known Angels of Destiny were a part of the new Tribunal gathered to stop the threat of the Old Ones.[10] They presumably did not join the assault against Prue Halliwell, though it is unknown if they were among those slaughtered by her.[11]
