Early 6th century
Morrigan, formally known as The Morrigan, is a powerful demonic sorceress who was the arch-nemesis to King Arthur and his kingdom in ancient times. She is reborn in modern times by infusing part of her essence with his soul, which was reborn as Wyatt Halliwell.
The Morrigan was once a powerful demonic sorceress who terrorized the kingdom of Albion, ruled by King Arthur. She encountered the King many times and was responsible for the death of his mentor Merlin and the capture of his knight Percival, whom she enslaved with her dark magic and used as her personal slave.
At some point in time, Morrigan became aware of Arthur's future life and began to plot her return. She brew a potion that would tie her essence to Arthur's soul. She proceeded to manipulate Morgana into giving him the potion by revealing Percival was still alive. However, the potion eventually found its way into the hands of Guinevere. She then tricked Arthur into drinking the potion when he would not allow her and Lancelot to be together.
When Morrigan faced Arthur on the battlefield, she revealed her plan. Due to the potion, their lives were connected, meaning that if one died, the other would die as well. This would allow Morrigan to return once Arthur was reborn. Morrigan was then fatally stabbed with Excalibur by Lancelot. With Morrigan vanquished, her army was defeated and the men she had enslaved were freed.
When Wyatt Halliwell, the reincarnation of Arthur, reached the same age as his past life, Morrigan was returned from the wasteland. She enslaved a Raptor Demon and had him steal the Urn of Asar, containing the essence of the Source of All Evil, whom she referred to as an old rival.
Dominik and his friend Kovar went to the Morrigan's lair to offer their services. The sorceress agreed to listen to their proposal, but soon vanquished Kovar for his rudeness and violent outburst. Dominik feared for his own life, but Morrigan decided to spare him and soon discovered he was immune to her luring. Interested, Morrigan gave him a chance to prove himself by infiltrating the lives of the Halliwells to find a way to destroy them.
Later Morrigan realized that someone was blocking her precognitive powers and understood that it was supposed to be the work of The Seer. After receiving a report from Dominik, she went to take control of a small group of demons.
When she realized that Julian Turner and the Seer had stolen her grimoire and failing to locate The Seer's lair, Morrigan went to P3. She demanded the return of her grimoire, threatening to unleash her demons on the mortals in the club. She also unveiled the relationship between Julian and the Seer and noted that the latter was developing feelings for the demon-witch.
After regaining her book, she left, though she realized that the Seer had extracted some of her spells. When she told Dominik she wanted to hurt Wyatt before killing him, he told her to break his heart.

- Morrigan is also partially based on the character Morgana from the series Merlin, also portrayed by Katie McGrath.
- Morrigan is mentioned by Arthur Cobbs in "Chosen Chapter 11: House Party".
