"See, leprechauns are like bees. They pollinate the world with luck. Sometimes the seeds don't stick but other times they grow into full-blown hot streaks, right?"
Paige describing Leprechauns.[src]

Leprechauns are Irish magical beings that are small in stature. They are known to grant luck to the world and live in their own realm known as the Green Meadow. Leprechauns can teleport through rainbows, which they light up with their shillelaghs.


Ancient Times[]

Leprechauns have existed for thousands of years, as noted by the Titan Cronus. They once roamed freely through the world along with the rest of the Magical Community until the mortal fear of magic.

The Leprechaun Crisis[]

In 2003, the demon Saleel started killing Leprechauns due to a personal dislike. He had little respect for their cowardice and believed they did not deserve their gift to grant luck to the world. Saleel stole the luck of each Leprechaun he killed in order to gain more power and respect in the Underworld.

During this crisis, a Leprechaun named Seamus Fitzpatrick worked with the Charmed Ones and formed a close bond with Paige Matthews. He granted her his Shillelagh before he was vanquished by Saleel. However, the demon was later vanquished himself due to an overdose of bad luck, causing a meteor to fall on him.[1]

Other Occurrences[]

Tall Riley

Riley cursed.

The Leprechauns were one of the many magical beings the Elders asked for help when they were attacked by the Titans.[2] A Leprechaun named Riley was once cursed by a Wicked Witch until Paige reversed her spell and vanquished her. He later assisted the sisters against the Spider Demon.[3]

A few Leprechauns assisted in the fight against Zankou after the demon had taken over the manor.[4] Several Leprechauns later appeared at the sisters' fake memorial to pay their respects to Paige.[5]

The Ultimate Battle[]

In 2006, Paige asked some Leprechauns to investigate a possible threat in Magic School. However, they were quickly chased off by the Triad. The demon Dumain later tried to destroy the reputation of the Charmed Ones for the upcoming Ultimate Battle. He hexed Paige, causing her to ignore a Leprechaun under attack, and orbed him of the Golden Gate Bridge. This act, along with others, caused the magical community to turn on the sisters.[6]

Neena and the Magical Switch[]

When the first witch, Neena, resurrected the Source of All Evil, the Charmed Ones decided to use the power of all white magic practitioners and Paige orbed around to collect samples of magic from various members of the Magical Community, including Leprechauns.[7]

When magic switched sides, granting mortals magical powers and stripping magical beings of them, a Leprechaun came into the Manor seeking help. The sisters gave him an address that served as a safe house for magical beings.[8]

Valen and Fritz[]

Seeking to obtain a weapon known as the Ancient Athame, two low-level demons named Valen and Fritz attacked the Green Meadow because they needed shillelaghs. The Leprechauns went to Piper for help at her restaurant because they could not enter the manor. Piper then called her sisters and the Leprechauns were overjoyed when Paige arrived. After getting the whole story from Bevin in the Green Meadow, they were attacked by Murray. During the fight, Bevin developed a crush on Phoebe, though it was later mentioned that she broke his heart.[9]

  • It was mentioned by Seamus Fitzpatrick that Leprechauns live in tribes. In "Magically Malicious", it is revealed that every leprechaun has their own task, like tending to the flowers and polishing the shillelaghs.
    • It was also mentioned there that Bevin was 263 years old. This is the first time the exact age of a Leprechaun has been mentioned.
  • In "Spin City", it was revealed that there is a second way to summon a Leprechaun; by knocking three times on the ground with a shillelagh.
  • The reason Paige is the friendliest with the Leprechauns is possible because of Rose McGowan's Irish heritage.
  • In the novel "Phoebe Who?", it was shown that leprechauns can use rainbows not only for teleportation, but also for attack.
