"Demons don't dream. But with each one of these I collect, it means more humans won't either. And without dreams, humans can't work through their issues while they sleep. Which means those issues spill out into their waking life, turning them angry, evil."
—Axel explaining why he wants dream dust.[src]

Axel was a demon who sought to gain respect and rewards from the leaders of the Underworld by stealing dream dust, so mortals could not work through their issues and would become angry and evil.


In 2002, Axel hired several demons, including a Tracer Demon, to track and kill Sandmen to obtain their dream dust. However, he became angry and impatient when the Tracer came back empty-handed. The Tracer informed him he would get his mark the following night.

After the Tracer tried to kill the Sandman and was confronted by the Charmed Ones, Axel became angry again and asked if the witches knew about him. However, the Tracer convinced him he could take care of the witches, as their dreams had been brought to life by an overdose of dream dust.

The Tracer then decided to kill the Charmed Ones and gain respect for himself. He vanquished Axel with lightning to get him out of the way.
