Oh, you dumb witches. You dare think you have the power to hold sway over me, Alastor, the Dark Master, Viscount of the Malebranche, Executioner…?
— Alastor[src]

Alastor (known within the mortal world as Alastair Caine) is an ancient, powerful demon who is the CEO of Morningstar Biotech and a benefactor to the Department of Genetics at Hilltowne University.

He seeks to capture the DNA of powerful witches, such as the Elders and The Charmed Ones, and is searching for a way to release the Harbinger of Hell. He seems to be grooming his son, Parker, into becoming the perfect vessel for the Source of All Evil.


After capturing the Harbinger of Hell, Charity Callaghan returned home with it. While on her way up to her floor, Caine walked into the elevator and used his power of mind control to make Charity switch her paint can, which contained the Harbinger, with his, and then walked out of the elevator.

He later became the benefactor of the Hilltowne University Laboratory, intending to hide from The Charmed Ones in plain sight. He sends his sons, Hunter and Parker, to collect powerful witch DNA and collect the shards of the Scythe of Tartarus (in hopes of breaking the containment spell on the Harbinger), respectively. Hunter managed to collect the DNA sample, but a history altering spell changed the outcome, prompting Hunter to collect Macy's blood. Parker was thwarted by the interference of Jada Shields. Caine then decided to have Parker seduce Maggie to their advantage.


Alastair appears to be a kind person but in reality is conniving, manipulative, and impatient.

Physical Appearance

Alastair's human appearance is of a middle-aged handsome white man, with stubble. His brown hair is cut in a marine haircut and his eyes are dark blue. In his demonic form he has a bald skull, burning skin, red eyes and sharp fangs.

  • Alastair shares the same name to a character from the original series, a chameleon demon who appeared in the season four episode, “Brain Drain". He was a spy for The Source but was vanquished by his master after failing to take out The Charmed Ones. It is unclear if the reboot’s Alastair is also one of The Source’s minions or just a nod to the original.
  • His eldest son, Hunter, mentioned that he is "a 3,000-year-old douche", suggesting that he is at least 3,000 years old. Though, it is unknown if he was being serious or not.
