A Whitelighter is a guardian angel who protects and guides young witches.
Powers and Abilities
- In the original series, Whitelighters traveled in 'orbs', or blue lights. It's been confirmed that the Whitelighters of the new series do NOT travel in orbs. They transport in a similar fashion as the wizards of Harry Potter do via disapparition.
- Another difference from the Whitelighters from the original series, it appears they can reveal themselves to their charges when they meet. In the original, the Charmed Ones' Whitelighter, Leo, hid his abilities and his purpose from the girls until Phoebe accidentally walked in on him hovering to replace a lightbulb.
