"You know what I hate most about leprechauns? You're all cowards. You don't deserve your gift, and it'll be my pleasure to take it from every last one of you."
—Saleel before killing Connor.[src]

Saleel was a low-level reptile demon known for using constrictor-like methods to kill his prey. He was known to be very elusive and kept snakes as pets. He harbored a personal hatred for leprechauns.


In 2003, Saleel started killing leprechauns to gain access to their gold nuggets of luck. His first victim was a leprechaun named Connor, whose shillelagh he stole. He then granted luck to other demons to win their support, among which were Janna and Jayda, in exchange for their loyalty and support in taking over the Underworld.

The Elders, who had detected a streak of bad luck on good people, had Leo warn the Charmed Ones. Paige cast a spell that sent her to Seamus Fitzpatrick, just in time to save him from Saleel. Angered, Saleel sought out another leprechaun named Liam and asked him about the witch. After realizing the Charmed Ones were now after him, Saleel killed Liam and took his shillelagh to find more luck. Meanwhile, Piper managed to scry for him using snake eyes.

When the sisters confronted Saleel, he cursed them with bad luck and killed Seamus. With the sisters now vulnerable, he sent Janna and Jayda after them. When Janna was vanquished in battle, Jayda kidnapped Piper and took her to Saleel's lair, where Saleel vanquished her for her failure.

To save their sister and defeat Saleel, Phoebe and Paige gathered the leprechauns and confronted him. The leprechauns hit Saleel with their combined bad luck, causing a meteor to strike and vanquish him.
