Jackson Ward[]

An evil spirit confined to the cell walls within the American prison Alcatraz in San Francisco, California, Jackson Ward was a serial killer who died within his cell at the prison and as a spirit was guided by Charon who informed him he could get off the island of Alcatraz by jumping into the body of an unconscious tour guide.[1] Upon his vanquish in Halliwell Manor, Jackson Ward burst into flames and Charon appeared to Prue and Phoebe Halliwell and captured a ball of flames and then disappeared. This suggests Charon ferried a vanquished Jackson to his place in hell.

Good or Evil[]

Although Charon is the one who informed Jackson that he could escape Alcatraz via an unconscious body allowing him to murder those responsible for his incarceration, whether she is good or evil remains a mystery. Since she is known as a guardian spirit who ferries spirits to Hades, it is plausible she is good. But on the same token, Charon may also capture good spirits and ferry them to Hades, which would make her evil; however, she was only shown capturing a flame ball of Jackson Ward making it most possible that she is good.

Mythology[]

In Greek Myth, Charon is a ferrier of souls who transfers the dead across the river Styx to Hades.
