Zile was an upper-level warlock who planned to acquire the power of the Charmed Ones. He was intent on making Prue his wife to further his evil powers. He teamed up with a dark priestess, Dantalian, who was supposedly willing to unite them in unholy matrimony in return for getting the Book of Shadows. The Charmed Ones' magic was so intertwined by this time that Prue's marriage to Zile would turn Piper and Phoebe evil as well, and the evil would flow through to the Book.
Zile disguised himself as Prue's date and managed to trap Prue in the Underworld using a paralysis potion given to him by Dantalian. After Dantalian performed the dark binding ceremony on an unconscious Prue, she kissed Zile. Unknown to Zile, however, Dantalian had put the potion on his lips. Dantalian revealed that she planned to take the Charmed Ones' powers for herself since she was tired of "bestowing others with great power." Zile soon became unconscious and remained asleep until the conversion to evil was complete on the Charmed Ones and their Book of Shadows. The result not only turned the Charmed Ones into warlocks, but contaminated the Book with evil as well.
Eventually Piper and Phoebe discovered Dantalian's lair, but Dantalian woke Zile and Prue up, who had now become her slaves and ordered them to kill Piper and Phoebe. Zile then shapeshifted into Prue and both Zile and Prue blinked to different areas of the lair, causing Piper and Phoebe to be hesitant in attacking the wrong Prue and killing their sister. However, when the real Prue said "I love you" to him and Zile said "you too," Phoebe then remembered that Cole said that evil wasn't capable of love. Piper froze Zile and shattered him which broke the evil bond between him and Prue, and turned Piper, Phoebe, and the book good again. The Charmed Ones then vanquished Dantalian with the use of a Power of Three spell.
