The Libris are an order of lower-level demons that kill mortals who have potential to prove the existence of demons, in order to keep their existence hidden from the mortal world. They carry a sickle to attack their victims.


A college student, Charlene Hughes, came close to proving the existence of demons once, but one Libris hid in the Evans Hall Library and took her to the basement where he sliced off her head. Her spirit, however, remained in the library and helped the Charmed Ones vanquish him.

Phoebe had a premonition of the demon going after her and concocted a plan with Piper, Prue and Charlene to draw out the demon. Unfortunately, he moved too quickly and Phoebe was dragged to the basement of the library before anyone could do anything. Charlene's spirit managed to hold him off long enough for Prue to astral project and vanquish him.

Libris entry in the Book


Spell to vanquish the Libris


In the demonic hierarchies there
are none more insidious than
those who belong to this
order...for the work of the Libris
is to keep the world in Darkness
and Ignorance. The haunting
grounds of these monsters are
found wherever humans have the
potential to find unequivocal proof
of the existence of Demons.
To vanquish one of their ranks, a witch
must keep this rhyme close to her heart:
Demon hide your evil face
Libris die and leave no trace
