Zakal was a powerful evil wizard who was loyal to the Source of All Evil for many centuries. He was summoned by Piper Halliwell for information about the Ultimate Battle and subsequently vanquished by the demon Phoenix posing as Phoebe Halliwell.


Piper Halliwell summoned Zakal in 2006, after finding him in the Book of Shadows. She trapped him in a Crystal Cage and wanted to interrogate him for information about the Ultimate Power to get Leo back. However, unknown to Piper, her sister Phoebe was replaced by a demon named Phoenix. This demon and her partners sought to use the Power of Three to vanquish their former master, the Slave King. To test her powers, Phoenix used a vanquishing potion on Zakal before Piper could interrogate him. The potion worked and Zakal was vanquished before Piper could get the information she wanted.
