Belthazor is a demon half-breed featured on the WB Network fantasy drama CHARMED (1998-2006).
“Belthazor is a demonic soldier of fortune. Both powerful and dangerous, he has destroyed countless witches, innocents and demons. As sinister as he is intelligent, he not to be trusted. Belthazon’s known abilites include throwing energy balls and shimmering from place to place, but his powers are probably not limited to these capabilities. Because there is no known way to defeat him, Belthazor should be avoided.” – According the Book of Shadows
Born in 1885 of a Human father (Benjamin) and a Demon mother Elizabeth, Belthazor’s human half is a handsome tricksters who goes under the name of Cole Turner.
A member of the Brotherhood of the Thorn, Belthazor (Michael Bailey Smith) was assigned to travel to the city of San Francisco to destroy the Charmed One, a.k.a. The Halliwell sisters (witches Phoebe, Pru & Piper).
In the guise of Assistant District Attorney Cole Turner (Julius McMahon), he gathered information on how to destroy the witch sisters, but unforeseen, Cole fell in love with Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano). No longer able to fulfill his mission, he goes on the run until Cole’s demonic half, Belthazor is vanquished.
Eventually, Phoebe and Cole get married, but over time Phoebe grows to distrust Cole who gains untold power by inheriting the energy from a being known as the “Source of all Evil.”
Soon after, Phoebe divorces him and Phoebe finally vanquishes the former “love of her life” (whom she now hated). Through it all, Cole claimed to love Phoebe eternally.
At one point in their relationship, Phoebe had the responsibility of killing Cole, but instead she let him go free and kept it to herself, until her deception (motivated by love) was uncovered by her other sisters who were none to happy about the whole situation.
Phoebe added this page of information about Cole Turner to the Book of Shadows: He likes walks in the park, jazz, fine wine. He’s ticklish (toes and waist especially). “He’s an excellent salsa dancer, pretends otherwise. He likes steak, medium rare, and artichokes. PS: Good in bed. Good Stamina.”
