Armond, the Necromancer
He has dominion over the dead and uses his power over them to absorb their spirit and get a temporary fix of life. But he was always searching for magical spirits with enough power to resurrect himself.
He was banished by Grams back into the spirit realm. According to Grams he enjoys Clark Gable movies and his favourite dinner is Lamb chops with mint jelly.

He was vanquished by Grams.

Potions/Rituals: potion to vanquish the Necromancer:

dragon root
eel skin
bloodwort (yarrow)

to summon Grams:

Hear these words, hear my cry
Spirits from the other side
Come to me, I summon thee
Cross now the great divide

Truth spell:
For those who want the truth revealed, 
open hearts and secrets unsealed, 
from now until it's now again, 
after which the memory ends

to vanquish a ghost:

Ashes to ashes, 
spirit to spirit
Take his soul.
Banish this evil

to summon a Creeper demon:

Demons who dwell in slivers of night, 
uncloak your shadows to witch's sight

Wiccaning blessing (for Wyatt):

I call forth from space and time, matriarchs from the Halliwell line, 
mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, 
our family's spirit without end, 
to gather now in this sacred place, 
and help us bring this child to grace.
The next generation has been born into our family, our legacy. We pledge to be with this child, this beautiful boy always. Apart but never separate, free but never alone. He is one of us and because of that, we will bless him with all the goodness that we are. 
Welcome to the family, Wyatt Matthew Halliwell
