4x19 Demon guardsDemon guards

4x19 WizardWizard.
The Source has slaughtered wizards centuries ago, they are supposed to be extinct.
The last surviving wizard is after the Grimoire because there is a spell in there that can consecrate a weapon and make him strong enough to kill the Source. But if the wizard kills the Source he becomes the Source himself. He'll then have enough magic to resurrect his people.
Wizards have the power of illusion.

The wizard has been vanquished by Phoebe.

The Grimoire, the evil Book of Shadows, is needed in the coronation. The Source has to lay his hand on the book as he as the oath, otherwise he doesn't get his powers.
The grimoire protects itself from good.

Guards will take their places along the aisle. There will be Human sacrifices and at midnight the ritualistic chant begins. The Source will be escorted in for the ceremony. A dark priest begins the ceremony with a dark blessing:

May the world's evil flow through your soul tonight and grant you eternal dark.
Are you prepared to take the power and position of the Source before these leaders of the underworld?

Then the Source speaks the oath. Upon completion of the oath, the Source will be given the full powers of the underworld.  

Spells: Coronation oath:
Votum Sanguinis

His verbis incovamus 
potentias tremendas 
fontis ipsius 
In hac hora descendat malum
Et coronam imponat 
super virum efectum.

Blood oath

These words call upon 
the tremendous powers 
of the Source
Within this hour, evil descends. 
And when he crowns himself 
he will be their master

to get the powers of the Source
(blood from both must spill over the page of the Grimoire):

Malus into exitus omne!
