Zachary is a telepathic witch and a former student at Magic School. He was responsible for summoning the Headless Horseman in an attempt to be free of Magic School. He was initially thought of as a villain, however, the Charmed Ones quickly realized that he was just a scared and angry kid whose feelings were being overlooked by the people who were meant to help him.


Resentment at Magic School

Over the course of his student years, he was played by his fellow students and has tried to tell Gideon about his problems with the school and how much he wanted to leave, but Gideon was, unfortunately, not listening.

Revenge on Gideon

In the end he used his telepathic abilities to cause troubles around the school to make Gideon suffer by conjuring up the Headless Horseman to behead the teachers and cast an eternal night spell on the school, amongst other havoc. Later, he used Piper's power of molecular immobilization to freeze the students and kidnap Piper's head to lure Phoebe and Paige into a trap and get them out of his plot of revenge.

After he had the Headless Horseman behead Phoebe, Piper, and Paige (only because he wanted them out of his way), he went straight after Gideon and used Gideon's own telekinetic powers to point an athame at his throat. But the sisters managed to reattach their heads to their bodies and stop him in time. They convinced him that magic made him who he was, and was not worth throwing his life away for. This was enough to convince him to give up revenge. Zachary was then returned to his family, much to his delight. Paige offered to bind his powers because he said he had a hard time accepting who he was, but in the end, he decided to keep them.
