"You're lack of faith is understandable given what Gideon has done, but one bad Elder doesn't make us all bad. We are on the same side here."
—Zola to the sisters.[src]

Zola was a member of the Council of Elders who sought to reach out to Leo Wyatt after Gideon had tried to kill his son Wyatt and succeeded in killing the future version of Chris. However, Leo was manipulated by the demon Barbas to see Zola as another threat to his sons, tricking Leo into killing Zola on top of the Golden Gate Bridge.


After adult Chris' death at Gideon's hands, Leo was driven by vengeance to vanquish the demon Barbas, who had been working with the fallen Elder. During this time, Zola tried to reach out to Leo and get him back in the fold before the coming storm. However, Barbas manipulated Leo into thinking that Zola was evil and Leo proceeded to strike Zola down with lightning and vanquished him before coming to his senses.

Leo deeply regretted what he had done and confided in Piper, who convinced him no one had to know. However, Zola's disappearance was quickly noticed by the rest of the Council of Elders and Leo became a suspect in his murder. This contributed to increase the friction between the Elders and the Charmed Ones, which ultimately drove both Leo and the sisters to join forces with the Avatars.

After the Avatars were stripped off their control on Earth, Zola's death had become a lost memory for the remainder of the show.
