Devlin realized that while the Source was recovering after being injured by Cole Turner during his attempt to trick Piper into giving up The Charmed Ones' powers, he had a chance to seize the throne for himself. He formed a faction of warlocks, whose all killed demons and took their powers. Under the normal hierarchy, warlocks were forbidden from attacking demons, though they were able to get away with it due to the Source being gone.
Attack on the Charmed Ones
Devlin set his sights on the Charmed Ones, since killing even one of them would mean automatic succession to the throne. He convinced one of his warlock associates, whom had obtained the power of glamouring from a demon, to impersonate Leo and attack the sisters.
When he failed, Devlin looked for a second warlock to aid him. Meanwhile, the sisters' muse Melody alerted the sisters about what Devlin was doing. She inspired Paige to orb the ring away from Devlin, which succeeded. The second warlock attacked first and got vanquished, but Devlin appeared straight afterwards and reacquired the ring.
Battle at P3
Before his third and final attempt, Devlin inspired his entire faction to take part in an ambush at P3. However, the sisters discovered a way to smoke out the warlocks and managed to vanquish three before the others escaped. Unknown to them, Devlin escaped and glamoured into Melody. Once they got into the alley, he placed his hand on Phoebe's face and began killing her with a Touch of Death. Before he could succeed, Cole knocked him down and Piper threw a flash potion, preventing him from blinking away. Devlin glamoured back into his true self and Piper tried to blow him up, though he was able to reconstitute himself. The sisters then vanquished him with a spell, ending this threat and freeing the muses.
