Magical Notes Edit

Book of Shadows Edit

The Furies

Like their mythic ancestors,
these demonic women act
as judge, jury and executioner
to anyone they consider an
"evil doer".
They disable victims with their
sharp talons and kill with
poisonous smoke.
Note: when inhaled by a good
witch, the smoke seeks out
a portal of unexpressed fury.
It then causes the fury to
build consuming the witch's
humanity and ultimately
turning her into a Fury.

Spells Edit

An adapted version of the "To Call a Lost Witch" spell to find Prue and Piper.

Power of the sisters rise
Course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
Come to us and settle here
Blood to blood, I summon thee
Blood to blood, return to me.
