Trackers are a breed of upper-level Darklighters recognizable by their tribal markings on their faces and bodies. They specialize in eliminating weak Whitelighters (specifically those who have fallen or are one step away from losing their wings), leaving their charges vulnerable to all manners of evil. Trackers are more difficult to destroy than the common Darklighter.


Main article: Ronan

In late 2002, a Tracker named Ronan was hired to take down a Whitelighter by the name of Sam Wilder, the biological father of Paige Matthews. While working together with Cole Turner, he also attempted to kill Paige and Leo in the process. However, he was double-crossed by Cole, who killed him.

Book of Shadows[]


Related to the darklighters, trackers, are harder to kill
as they are unaffected by those means used to dispose
of darklighters. With their distinctive markings, trackers
pick off weak whitelighters to help thin the ranks of good.
The tracker will never give up once it has a whitelighter
in its sights. The only chance for the survival depends on
vanquishing the tracker.
