Main article: Dantalian

The priestess Dantalian betrayed her calling and attempted to gain the power of the Charmed Ones and their Book of Shadows by corrupting them with dark magic. She enlisted the help a warlock named Zile to kidnap Prue. She then binded an unconscious Prue to Zile in marriage, turning not only the Charmed Ones, but also their book evil. Dantalian then revealed her intention to claim the Charmed Ones' powers for herself. However, her plan was foiled and she was vanquished by the sisters.
