Kava was a Grimlock and the partner of Janor. Although vanquished by the hand of Prue and Phoebe Halliwell in 1999, he returned on Halloween in 2000, only to be vanquished by Leo Wyatt with a potion.


Early History[]

In 1979, two boys were kidnapped for their eyesight by Kava and Janor. One of the boys, Brent Miller, was able to escape from the sewers. Although Brent remained blind after his escape, his eyesight returned when Janor and Kava were vanquished in 1999 by The Charmed Ones.

First encounter with the Charmed Ones[]


Kava and Janor's first appearance.

In 1999, Kava and Janor kidnapped a young boy named David during his birthday party at the park. Janor and Kava stole his eyesight in order to track down and kill people with good auras. As Prue Halliwell witnessed the kidnapping, she and her sisters tracked the Grimlocks down to the storm drains on the other side of town. The sisters confronted the Grimlocks in the storm drain and managed to vanquish them with a potion created from Shisandra Root.

Revenge on the Charmed Ones[]

Janor Phoebe

Phoebe thinks Janor and Kava are men in costume.

Cole: "My next question, didn't they already get you two years ago?"
Janor: "Yeah, but it's Halloween. When the veil between worlds thin. When the demons that know how can return to seek their revenge."
— Janor explains his and Kava's resurrection.[src]

On October 31st, 2000, Kava and Janor returned from being vanquished and sought vengeance against The Charmed Ones. After meeting with Cole Turner, who was sent by the Triad, the Grimlocks knocked on the front door of the manor. When Phoebe opened the door, she initially mistook them for men in costumes, but quickly realized the truth.

Janor shot1

Janor and Kava shot.

The two Grimlocks attacked the sisters by strangling them with their auras, though the fight was interrupted when a portal opened and sucked the sisters into the past. With the sisters gone, Leo and Darryl Morris were left to fight off the Grimlocks. They headed to the attic to find a way to vanquish the Grimlocks, but are quickly attacked again. Darryl shot the Grimlocks, though they were impervious to bullets.

The men next headed to the kitchen to make the vanquishing potion, at which point the Grimlocks attacked again. They began stealing Darryl's eyesight, though he managed to blind them using the flash of a camera. At that moment, The Charmed Ones returned from the past, distracting the Grimlocks and allowing Leo to vanquish Kava. When Janor began strangling Leo, Prue flung the potion off the floor at him, vanquishing him once more.
