Vaklav was a demon who used a camera to trap people, specifically Future Whitelighters, in a magical collage. As long as they remained trapped, Vaklav kept feeding off the pain of their families and friends. When the last of these loved ones was gone, Vaklav would replace his victim with another.


In 1955, Vaklav took J.D. Williams as one of his victims. When J.D.'s father, the last of his relatives, passed away in 2005, Vaklav materialized J.D. in order to vanquish him and make room for a new victim. J.D. managed to escape his lair, but was hit by a car. Due to the bystanders, Vaklav had no choice but to let him go.

Vaklav then posed as a doctor at the hospital in order to get close to J.D. and kill him. Meanwhile, J.D's whitelighter Sam Wilder reached out to Paige for help in saving his charge. Paige then reached out to Agent Murphy and they met at the hospital. Once there, Murhpy realized Vaklav wasn't a doctor by seeing his dirty boots. He ran after Vaklav and fired his gun at him, causing Vaklav to retreat, as his cover was blown.

As Paige and Murphy investigated more missing cases, Sam arrived and revealed that J.D. had said something about a flash camera. Paige then noted that one of the last victims was seen with a photographer. They went to talk to the victim's father and decided to investigate the photography studio. Unknown to them, Vaklav was following them. At the studio, Paige and Sam had a fight about their relationship, causing Paige to storm out. Vaklav then captured Sam in his collage.

When Paige returned, Vaklav confronted her and offered to trade Sam for J.D. When J.D. heard this, he revealed that he wanted to make the trade, as he owed Sam. While the sisters went to the attic, J.D. subdued Billie and confronted Vaklav, leading to the demon easily killing him with a fireball. Thinking he had won, Vaklav took his camera and left. However, Paige was able to free Sam by reaching out for him and calling him dad. This not only freed Sam, but all the other victims as well.

Vaklav appeared in the attic and angrily threw a fireball at Paige, which she deflected. Paige then grabbed the camera and trapped Vaklav in his own collage.
