Posing as Imaginary Friend
Dumain had been an "imaginary friend" to the Jenkins sisters when they were little girls. After Christy was kidnapped by demons, it is presumed that he helped train Christy in the path of evil in the fifteen years before Billie rescued her.
In 2006, Dumain approached the Triad with an audacious plan. He proposed to have Christy turn Billie against the Charmed Ones by making Billie think the Charmed Ones were actually evil, or at the very least on the verge of being corrupted by their power, he then expected there would be a huge battle which would kill both sets of sisters and permanently shift the balance of power in favor of the forces of evil. The Triad liked the idea so much that they promised to make Dumain one of them if it ever succeeded.
He used Billie's Book of Shadows to find the Charmed Ones' weaknesses, and used them to keep the Halliwells occupied long enough to turn the magical community against them.
The Triad wasn't satisfied at fighting the Charmed Ones to a draw, and told Dumain to have the Jenkinses summon the Hollow. Dumain didn't like this idea, fearing that the Hollow would infect the Jenkinses and make them kill the Triad for their powers as well. However, he reluctantly went along. Knowing the Jenkinses weren't strong enough to call the Hollow on their own, Dumain persuaded Wyatt to help them. Once Billie and Christy got the Hollow, Dumain told them to take all of Wyatt's powers. After doing so, the sisters turned on him.
Dumain later tried to warn the Triad of the consequences before the Charmed Ones showed up and vanquished the Triad for good with power from the Hollow (who also got it at the same time). Dumain barely escaped with his life.
Foiled plan to save the Triad
The Jenkinses faced the Charmed Ones in the manor, and in the resulting battle, Phoebe, Paige and Christy died. Piper went back in time to save her sisters and Dumain urged Billie to do the same with her projection power. However, when he tried to get Billie to go to the Triad first, Billie realized she was being played, and turned back to the side of the Charmed Ones.
In the changed past, Christy managed to find Dumain herself. Believing that they needed to get to the Hollow before the Charmed Ones did, he stole Coop's ring. He and Christy then used it to go back in time and warn the Triad. However, Billie projected herself and the Charmed Ones back in time as well Dumain watched helplessly as the Charmed Ones vanquished the Triad. Before he could get away, Piper blew him up. Past Dumain tried to shimmer out of danger, but Piper blew him up in midshimmer, vanquishing him.
