Creatures: 4x15 Dark Priest

Dark Priests are demonic priests.
These demons have forsaken their own ambitions of power and dedicate only to the promotion of evil. They are known for collecting human souls at dark masses and they are summoned to perform dark ceremonies such as dark weddings and coronations. All dark priests are "shielded" from the radar of beings of light to cover up their deeds.


4x15 Lazarus DemonLazarus demon, a rare form of high level demons, with telekinetic powers. After you kill a lazarus demon you have to bury the remains to prevent resurrection.
The longer a Lazerus demon is out of cemetary ground, the stronger
he gets.

The Lazarus demon is finally vanquished by Cole and buried by Leo

For a dark wedding you need a dark priest to perform the ceremony at night, in a cemetery. The groom has have to drink the bride's blood.

Evil curse or witches brew, 
I call the magic cast by you. 
Hear my voice and come to me, 
Leave your victim, let her free

Background info:



Piper and Paige do their best to keep their sister calm as Phoebe's wedding approaches. Their task only gets harder though as Cole makes secret plans for a dark wedding to Phoebe, a ceremony that will turn their as yet unborn child towards evil. Unfortunately for Paige, Cole's plotting causes a rift between her and Phoebe as the middle sibling blames the youngest for everything that goes wrong. In the meantime they are forced to contend with the Lazarus demon, a creature that will continue to resurrect itself until they return him to the grounds of a cemetery. All of this madness eventually forces Phoebe to call off her wedding. And she succumbs to Cole's trickery and unknowingly marries him in the dark ceremony he had been planning for.
