- "Hello Bane. It's telepathic connection. I'm only in your mind."
- —Litvack confronting Bane.[src]
Litvack was a powerful and feared upper-level demon. He was a member of the Ordo Malorum and worked directly for the Source of All Evil. Aiding him in his tasks were his servants, referred to as Level Two Demons, and his vast amount of powers.
In 2000, Litvack was vanquished along with his servants after his first encounter with the Charmed Ones. He was the first upper-level demon in the Source's inner circle that the Charmed Ones faced.
In 2000, Litvack ordered the death of the imprisoned criminal Bane Jessup for his knowledge about demons. However, Bane realized the trap and escaped the demons and prison. He then kidnapped Prue Halliwell, whom he had met months earlier while working for the demon Barbas, and asked her for help.
Not much later, at Litvack's crypt, Bane tried to exchange the weapon for his life. However, Litvack took the weapon but wanted more. On that moment Piper froze everyone in the crypt, or so she thought. When she wanted to take back the weapon from Litvack he moved his hand away, showing he was immune to the powers of witches.
Litvack was ready to kill the Charmed Ones with a huge Fireball when Prue ordered Piper to unfreeze Bane which she reluctantly did. After seeing Litvack about to kill the sisters and with his back to him, Bane maneuvered the still-frozen assistant's weapon to point at Litvack who turned around at the last moment. Before Litvack could react, Bane made the demon fire the weapon, fatally striking Litvack. Enraged, Litvack fired back at his minion and they were vanquished by each other's weapons.

Notes and Trivia
- Litvack was the first demon to refer to the Source of All Evil directly by his name. The Warlocks Rex and Hannah only referred to the Source as him.
- Litvack was the first demon to generate a Fireball, which was also the first upper-level fireball, as well as generate the biggest Fireball ever seen in Charmed. Only in the Charmed comics was a bigger Fireball created; by The Source of All Evil.
- Litvack was able to project an image of himself into Bane's mind, making Bane see him in the mirror. This usage of telepathy resembles Astral Projection, though Litvack clearly notes it was only in Bane's head.
- His dislike for mortals knowing about the supernatural and his work of killing them, is similar to the Libris.
- Litvack was named after the father of Charmed-writer Cameron Litvack. His father was also the executive of The WB Television Network at the time "Give Me a Sign" was produced.
- Litvack was also the first demon to display forgiveness to his minions, when his assistant failed to kill Bane because of Prue, he didn't vanquish him because he was confronted by a powerful witch and not a simply human.
