The Charmed Legacy Wiki

In the Magical World, two Hierarchies exist. The Hierarchy of Good & Hierarchy of Evil. Each umbrella in the Hierarchy is characterized by beings possessing powers that range from the highest level of magical abilities to the lowest level. Certain magical beings, such as Witches or Sorcerers may be higher or lower in the hierarchy depending upon the knowledge of magic they possess and how proficient they are in channeling their powers; for instance, a neophyte witch will be lower in the hierarchy than an experienced witch that can hone his or her powers. There are also Neutral Magical Beings. These beings are complex. Some are beyond good & evil, such as The Avatars & The Cleaners. Some are both good & evil, such as The Tribunal. Others become tempted or swayed to either side such as Gods & Goddesses, Demi-Gods & Goddesses, Sorcerers, Firestarters, Trolls & Gremlins. Witches are in a plot hole in this story. The Halliwell sisters were told they have a 48 hour window to be swayed to either side when they become new witches, when discussing their newfound half-sister Paige Matthew's. After this it should be assumed that if the side of evil is chosen, then the new witch would become either an Evil Witch like Tuatha & The Sea Hag or a Warlock such as Hannah Webster & Cynda. Yet, it is said that to become a Warlock, a Witch would have to renounce their humanity. It is therefore to be assumed that Evil Witches have not renounced their humanity, or they would otherwise be called Warlocks
