Godric is an upper-level demon and a Primordial. He acts as an acolyte and righthand man for the Demon Overlord. Initially finding Parker Caine worthy of the role as the Overlord, Godric began working with Parker's half-sister, Abigael Jameson-Caine, after Parker was reunited with Charmed One, Maggie Vera. Later, Godric staged a coup and wished to become the new Overlord.[1] However, through unknown means, Abigael was able to reclaim the title from him.[4] After that, she tried to kill him multiple times, but Godric disappeared in an unknown direction.[3]

History

Throughout the Series

In "Things to Do in Seattle When You're Dead", Godric has a rat demon kidnap a young witch named Layla Chapman and gather all the demon bloodlines to the Seventh Circle Night Club to represent the "Demon Overlord". During the gathering, he orders his men to start the execution. One of the demons, Callum, refused to bow down to the Overlord for his absence and left. Macy Vaughn infiltrated the club and tried to bluff her way into saving the witch before Mel Vera and Maggie Vera broke in and started attacking while invisible. When the invisibility wore off, Godric realized they were witches. He later reported to the Demon Overlord about the Charmed Ones being alive.

In "Past is Present", Godric appears in a mansion in Switzerland alongside Parker Caine. Maggie Vera and Abigael Jameson-Caine appear at the house to question Parker about a recent attack at Sacred Grove where demons killed the dryads guarding the grove and its magical fruit that grants the consumer immunity to magic. Parker had no knowledge of the event, but Godric was the one who sent the troops to steal the fruit in hopes of strengthening Parker's power.

When Abigael was incarcerated as a suspect of attempting to murder her brother, Godric visited her in the dungeon. Their conversation reveals that Godric was the one who convinced Parker to take Abigael's place as the Demon Overlord while Abigael went missing, because he believed a member of the Caine Family would have a convincing influence, and with Parker being a young boy, Godric could control him as his advisor. Abigael convinced him to see how incapable he really is of running the Underworld.

During the interrogation, Godric tortures a group of demons suspected of the Sacred Grove attack, including Abigael. Maggie talks Parker down on the cruel interrogation, forcing Godric to reluctantly agree. As Maggie continues to show persuasive influence over Parker, Godric begins to see things Abigael's way and secretly hands over an enchanted apple to boost her power, allowing her to overpower the Truth Serum that Maggie and Parker dosed in her food. Godric joins forces with Abigael and agrees to assist her in reclaiming her throne.

In "The Rules of Engagement", Godric continues to feign loyalty to Parker while assisting Abigael in her plan to take back her place as the Demon Overlord. After she succeeded, Godric gathers all the demons in the Swiss mansion to celebrate the rise of the new Demon Overlord.

In "Needs to Know", Godric was mentioned by Parker during his verbal confrontation with Abigael.

In "Breaking the Cycle", Godric is seen reporting to Abigael about a search mission, which has so far turned up empty handed. Abigael tells him to keep searching.

In "The Enemy of My Frenemy", after the Charmed Ones vanquished Alfred, the last male heir of his clan, Godric wanted to wage war against the witches for violation against the treaty between them. Abigael, however, refused to listen and instead negotiated with the Charmed Ones. Having grown tired of her immobility, Godric secretly went to free Parker, on the promise that he would go free after they dealt with Abigael. They expose Abigael's alliance with the Charmed Ones and Parker's faked death to Lee, a female member of Alfred's Carnal clan. He immediately immobilized his enemies. Parker, however, had a change of heart and saved both Maggie and Macy. As Godric prepared to sacrifice both Abigael and Mel, a device to become the new Overlord and destroy a Charmed One simultaneously, Parker, Macy and Maggie concocted a rescue plan. Godric prepared to attack when Parker appeared and struck Godric with an energy ball. The electrical current of the attack was enough to immobilize him while his enemies escaped.

In "Search Party", Godric was mentioned by Abigael during her verbal confrontation with Mel. She wanted to leave her abandoned apartment, afraid that Godric and his henchmen would come to finally finish her off.

In "Chaos Theory", when the Charmed Ones were looking for witnesses to defend Abigael at her trial, Jordan Chase mentioned Godric as one of the possible candidates. However, this idea was immediately dismissed because Maggie remembered that Abigael had tried to kill him multiple times.

Personality

Godric is cunning, smart, persuasive with people, power hungry, and lacks loyalty. He recruited Parker to be the Demon Overlord after seeing Abigael's failure, then switched to her side when Parker showed lack of capability in running the demon world. He later betrayed both when feeling Abigael was going soft towards witches and was not using her status as the Demon Overlord to its full potential, staging a coup and planning on taking the title of Demon Overlord himself.

He is also known for extreme cruelty: he uses torture to force suspects to confess their crimes instead of finding other ways to find the truth. This also means he is not very patient.

Physical Appearance

Godric's human appearance is a black man, appearing to be in his forties in age, with deep black eyes and short black hair. His beard covers both sides of his face, jaw and up to the bottom of his nose. He tends to be seen in business clothing that demonstrates power and authority in the demon world.

This suggests that Godric may have gained the coveted title of Demon Overlord after her exile, which explains why the demonic world has lost all interest in Abigael.
