Demonic Power Brokers are demons who collect and trade demonic powers to the highest bidder. These bids can vary from other powers to innocents or material wealth.

Power Brokers sometimes use mortals to store their collected powers until they can find a buyer. However, this causes life-threatening danger for that mortal, as they are not able to handle magical powers. Storing a power in a temporary host can drive them to extreme confusion, violence and paranoia and will eventually lead to illness and death. The power can only be pulled out with a potion or by a Power Broker himself.

History

Encounter with the Charmed Ones

In 2002, a Power Broker stored the power of Acid Secretion in a mortal woman named Karen Young. Confused, Karen wandered the streets until she was found by Piper and Phoebe Halliwell. Overtime, the power made her confused and later violent. She tried to kill her boss Elise Rothman until Phoebe, Piper, and Leo managed to give her a potion to push the power out of her body.

When Paige became increasingly suspicious of Cole, he had a Power Broker named Raif store a demonic power in her to drive her to a confused and paranoid state. Cole then played into her fears by attacking her and speeding up the process. Driven to madness, Paige then attacked Cole and Phoebe in a hotel. The sisters, Leo and Cole later brought Paige to the power brokers' lair to demand they extract the power. Cole, while standing behind the sisters, revealed his identity to the brokers and convinced them to do as told. By the extracting the power, Paige's memories were erased but not her distrust of Cole.[1]
