Cole Turner is the ex-husband of Phoebe Halliwell and the father of Julian Turner, whom was believed to have been lost. Initially a half-demon, he became mortal after falling in love with Phoebe, though he later became the Source of All Evil after being possessed by the evil essence. After his vanquishment, he returned with unlimited demonic powers which ultimately drove him insane. After a failed attempt to reunite with Phoebe by creating an alternate universe, Cole was vanquished again and became stuck in the Cosmic Void.


Early LifeEdit

Cole was born as a half-demon to the demon Elizabeth and the mortal Benjamin Turner in the late nineteenth century. His mother killed his father and she raised him demonically. As an adult, Cole became a powerful upper-level demon known as Belthazor while assuming his demonic form. He was a member of the Brotherhood of the Thorn, a group of powerful demons loyal to the Source of All Evil.

Meeting PhoebeEdit

Belthazor was hired by the Triad to kill the Charmed Ones. However, during this time his human half, Cole, fell in love with Phoebe Halliwell and caused him to betray the Triad and seemingly kill them. He eventually turned good and began a relationship with Phoebe. During this time he was turned mortal for a time. However, Cole was eventually possessed by the essence of the Source and became the new Source of All Evil. He then lured Phoebe down a path of evil and she became pregnant with their demonic son. Ultimately, the good in Phoebe beat out the evil and she was forced to vanquish Cole.

Becoming InsaneEdit

After his vanquishment, Cole became stuck in the demonic wasteland, which he eventually escaped by absorbing hundreds of demonic powers, making him invincible. These demonic powers, as well as Phoebe's rejections, caused Cole to become insane. He was eventually vanquished again in a reality of his own creation after joining the Avatars.

The Void Edit

After his final vanquish, Cole's soul became stuck in a cosmic void, unable to move on. However, he is still able to communicate with beings in the physical realm. He once guided a demon called Drake to help restore Phoebe's faith in love and met Piper in the cosmic void when she was dying. However, neither Piper nor Drake ever revealed meeting Cole.

Legacy Edit

Decades later, Cole appeared in a troubling dream of Phoebe concerning her time as Queen of the Underworld and losing their unborn son.
