Charmed Series Book of Shadows: Witch Hunters

Witch Hunters are mortals who have sworn to hunt and kill Witches. These vigilantes are trained to hate magic and those who practice it, whether they are magical Witches or merely practitioners. Witch Hunters have existed as long as mortals first came into contact with magic, though they became most prominent in the late 17th century during the Salem Witch Trials.

The legacy of Witch Hunters is passed down through the generations, though any mortal with a hatred for magic can become a Hunter independently.

In the late 17th century, Witches became hated and feared for their powers. During these times, the Witch Hunters rose to power and started a crusade against magic. They hunted down and killed anyone suspected of being a witch without fair trial or proof. These 'witches' were often hanged, drowned and burned at the stake.

Melinda Warren, the ancestor the Charmed Ones, was betrayed by her warlock lover and given to the Witch Hunters to be burned at the stake.

The Elders once sent the Charmed Ones back the the 17th Century, where the sisters ran into a group of Witch Hunters led by a woman named Ruth Cobb, who was secretly a witch herself. The sisters helped a coven of witches and eventually helped give a young woman birth to Melinda Warren, their own ancestor.

The Charmed Ones later faced a present-day Witch Hunter named Jackman, who posed as an FBI agent. He tricked the sisters into helping him find the daughter of a Witch and later tried to kill them all. However, he was then killed by Cole Turner when he tried to shoot Phoebe and Cole swapped their places, causing him to get shot by his own bullet.
