Tracer Demons are a race of evil low-level demons often hired as mercenaries in the Underworld because of their ability to track magical prey through dimensions.


In 2003, the demon Axel hired a Tracer Demon to track Sandmen in order to obtain their dream dust. When the Tracer went after a Sandman who asked the Charmed Ones for help, he accidentally destroyed his bag of dream dust that hit Phoebe which brought her dream to life. The Tracer used this incident as inspiration and made Piper, Paige and Leo's dreams come to life to distract them and then sent Phoebe's dream after her. With all of them vulnerable and separated, the Tracer moved in and killed the Sandman.

Seeing this, the Tracer decided that killing the Charmed Ones was a better way to earn the respect of the Underworld's leaders. He proceeded to vanquish Axel to claim his own success, though he was blown up by Piper after they dealt with their dreams.
