"Because the only way to get rid of me is to make three wishes. Come on, large or small. I do all kinds. Only no world peace, I can't do that."
—The Genie to Phoebe.[src]

The Unnamed Genie was sent by the Council to weaken the Charmed Ones by granting their wishes, which would supposedly give the Dragon Warlock the needed advantage to kill them.


When the sisters found the bottle on their doorstep, they freed the Genie, though Leo quickly warned them the dangers of making wishes.

However, the Genie was able to trick all three sisters into making a wish: Prue wanted to feel like she was in love for the first time again, which turned her into a powerless 17-year-old version of herself. Piper wished for Dan to move on, which caused him to rapidly age. Phoebe wished for an active power, after which she gained the power of flight from the Dragon Warlock. The genie then went to eat at a restaurant, only to be captured by the Council and ordered to directly assist the Dragon Warlock.

After the Dragon Warlock killed Prue, the Genie felt guilty over the part he played and reversed the wishes by returning to the bottle. This caused Prue to revert to her adult self, but did not bring her back to life. When the Dragon Warlock attacked, Phoebe released the Genie and wished for Prue to be alive. The sisters then vanquished the warlock together.

The sisters later decided to give the Genie his freedom by making him mortal, though before they did, Piper wished Dan would forget everything about magic. After becoming mortal, the Genie left to start a new life. All wishes granted this time caused no consequences.
