The Tribunal was a neutral council, with two Elders representing Good and two demons representing Evil. The Tribunal was tasked with protecting the secret of magic and preventing exposure. As such, the members gave judgement over those who are charged with exposing magic or seek to appeal their decision. The Tribunal resided in a neutral realm, where they appeared as enormous, floating heads to rule in cases.


A long time ago, the forces of Good and Evil came to an agreement that magic must never be exposed to the mortal world. To ensure that the secret was kept, two Elders and two Demons were chosen to represent their sides in a neutral council, which become known as the Tribunal.

The Charmed OnesEdit

The Charmed Ones met the Tribunal when the Cleaners had framed Darryl Morris for murder to prevent the exposure of magic, resulting in him receiving the death penalty. The sisters fought the decision with help from the Elder Gideon, while Barbas opposed their case. However, during the trial, Barbas pursued the Tribunal to judge over the sisters themselves for repeatedly risk exposing magic and using magic for personal gain. 

However, it was later discovered that Barbas had in fact orchestrated the entire trial by causing magic to become exposed in the first place. The decision to execute Darryl was reversed just in time and the case was dismissed. However, Phoebe was stripped of her active powers as the Tribunal ruled that she had used them for personal gain too often, which had indirectly set these events in motion.


When the Brotherhood took over San Francisco, the Tribunal and the Elders cast a spell to alter reality and prevented the rest of the world from discovering the truth. Once the Brotherhood was defeated, they cast a spell to alter the memories of the people inside the city, making them believe a freak storm was responsible.

When Nick and Nathan Ross were hunted down by Homeland Security, Duncan came up with the idea to have the Tribunal wipe their record clean and asked Leo Wyatt for help. The Tribunal refused their request, but later turned it into a trial. After making their case, the twins convinced the Tribunal they were willing to sacrifice themselves for the other. This resulted in the Tribunal giving them a clean slate, at the cost of their active powers.

A little while later, the Tribunal was confronted by the wizard Ambrose wielding the Staff of Magnus. He informed them he was tired of the grand design and proceeded to vanquish the Cleaners. He then electrocuted the Tribunal, resulting in their destruction.

The CleanersEdit


The Cleaners were a group of magical beings created by the Tribunal to act as their agents and intervene when magic is exposed and remove potential risks. The Cleaners appeared as men in white suits without emotions, as they were created artificially.

The Charmed Ones encountered the Cleaners when Wyatt conjured a dragon from the TV, which wrecked havoc on the city. Wyatt was then removed from reality as a possible risk, though the sisters cast a spell to remember the day they lost and discovered the truth. They then exposed magic to the world and warned the Cleaners they would continue to do so unless Wyatt was returned. The Cleaners then reluctantly agreed.

The Cleaners appeared again during the trial before the Tribunal. They framed Darryl Morris for murder to prevent the exposure and one was later called upon as a witness by Barbas. All the Cleaners were vanquished years later by Ambrose.
