Thorn Demons are a breed of low-level demons who can be identified through their distinct tribal markings and unique ability to spit toxic thorns.


Piper and Paige were looking for a paragon of good to protect from the Thorn Demons. As the innocent came down an alley, she started talking to Piper and Paige handed them flyers, causing Piper to freeze her. However, at that moment a group of Thorn Demons attacked. The sisters managed to vanquish the group, but not before Piper was hit by a thorn in her hand. This attack was later revealed to have been set up by Cole Turner.

The toxin in the thorn later caused Piper to fall into a coma, where she then became stuck in the Cosmic Void with Cole. Even though the wound was eventually healed by Wyatt, Piper remained in a coma and was dying from a broken heart until Leo returned to her, having fallen from grace and becoming mortal.
