The Angels of Destiny are immortal angels that protect the Grand Design. There are many angels that oversee and guide all destinies down the path they were meant to follow. The angels exist to ensure that destiny happens the way it was supposed to happen, and will intervene when the natural order of things is disrupted.
The Angels of Destiny are among the highest forces in the universe and are respected and feared by all beings, even those as powerful as the Elders and the Avatars and even the Angel of Death. They are neutral, as they do not interfere with the battle between good and evil.
Witch Way NowEdit
An Angel of Destiny appeared before the Charmed Ones after they had vanquished the Source of All Evil the second time. As they had fulfilled the first part of their destiny, he offered them a chance to rewrite their destinies and live their lives as mortals, without magic ever interfering in their lives again. Piper and Phoebe were tempted, but Paige wanted to remain a witch. After saving an innocent, all three sisters agreed to remain the Charmed Ones.
The Ultimate BattleEdit
Another Angel of Destiny was summoned by the sisters when the Angel of Death appeared to claim Leo. He told them that Leo was meant to die according to the Grand Design. The Angel informed them that Leo's death was meant to motivate the sisters to fight, as they would not win the battle without the pain of loss. Eventually the sisters made a deal to have Leo frozen instead and he would be returned if the battle was over. When the ultimate battle was fought with Piper and Billie as the only survivors, the Angel appeared to return Leo, stating that this was not how she envisioned the battle to end. When Piper went back in time, the Angel was forced to take Leo again, until the battle was ended the way it was supposed to happen.
The Once and Future EvilEdit
Piper once again summoned an Angel of Destiny when she discovered that Wyatt was still heading down a path of evil, despite all their efforts to save him. The Angel informed her that one being was never meant to hold that much power, and that all that power would inevitably corrupt him. The Angel then told Piper that the only way to save her son for this fate, was to take his powers. After Wyatt's powers were stripped and Excalibur restored, the Angel of Destiny revealed that Piper had corrected a flaw in the Grand Design.
A manifestation of the Angels of Destiny appeared before Billie during her vision quest.
