"Did you just try and cast a love spell on me? I'm a warlock. What is this world coming to?"
—Nigel to Penny Halliwell.[src]

Nigel was a warlock who lived in San Francisco in the late 1960s. He was the one who killed Allen Halliwell, Penny Halliwell's first husband.


Original Timeline

In 1967, with the help of his evil witch associate, Robin, he sought to kill the multitude of witches that were gathered at the Halliwell Manor for a "magical be-in." They hoped to take the power of the Nexus for themselves, and massacre a large number of good witches in the process. As part of their plan, Robin ingratiated herself with Penny, to the point they became best friends. However, after Robin killed Penny's husband, Allen, Penny flew into a rage and killed them both in short order.

Altered Timeline

In 2004, Paige was transported to 1967 when she put on a pair of Grams' go-go boots, and temporarily altered the future when she tricked Robin into killing herself with her own fireball. Nigel blinked into the manor shortly afterward, expecting to help start the planned massacre, only to find that Penny, Allen and the Charmed Ones had sent everyone home. Penny and Allen, true to their hippie nature, initially weren't willing to fight him, but this only made Nigel angrier. He threw a fireball at Penny, but Allen jumped in front of it, sacrificing his life for Penny's. He later came back to finish off Penny and the Charmed Ones, but Penny angrily flung him around the room before vanquishing him with a spell.
