"They were young, filled with emotions. Hopes and dreams, love. And I enjoyed taking it all. And now I’m going to enjoy taking your delicious pain."
—The first Empusa to Noah.

The Empusa are female demons who drain and feed on the emotions of other beings. For this reason, they are often described as emotional vampires.


An Empusa killed a coven of five witches in London by draining their emotions, leaving them powerless. When their Whitelighter Noah arrived, the Empusa tried to kill him as well, though she was vanquished by an Elder before she could.

Decades later, Prue Halliwell encountered another Empusa in a bar in San Francisco. When the Empusa took an innocent, Prue tried to save him. However, as the Empusa was immune to her power, she and Noah were forced to run. After finding a vanquishing spell and potion, Prue and her sisters confronted the Empusa as she was trying to drain a young couple of their emotions. They tried to cast the spell, but the Empusa's speed allowed her to destroy the potion before it hit.

When the Empusa grabbed Noah and threatened to kill him, Prue found the strength to stand up to her. Using her empathy, she channeled the emotions of the entire city into the Empusa, causing her to be overwhelmed and destroyed.


A vanquishing spell and potion were found in a Magic School book.

Vixen who feeds on love and pain,
We witches three shall end your reign.
