Familiars fulfill a similar role to Whitelighters, as they both protect and guide their charges. Familiars generally do not associate themselves with evil, though the evil witch Tuatha did have a snake serving as her familiar.
The Charmed Ones had a familiar cat named Kit, which once protected another witch named Serena until she was murdered by a warlock. Kit remained with the sisters for about three years and shortly watched over Paige Matthews before moving on. She was eventually rewarded for her work and turned into a human, taking the name Katrina, and continued looking after other Familiars.
