Early Life

As a child, Julian's parents died in a car crash, and his sister Rosemary was seriously injured and has since been in an coma. After this tragedy, Julian has been placed under the guardianship of his aunt Vivienne Laurent. His aunt was a very caring guardian, but as Julian got older, for unknown reasons, she began to interfere with all sorts of his romantic relationships, and at some point Julian noticed this.[2]

When he was younger, he spent his entire allowance on a sweater just because he thought it looked cool.[3]

However, the next morning, Julian sees Macy during a meeting and excuses himself for a moment to talk with her.

In "An Inconvenient Truth", Julian puts out a video asking for Macy under the pretense that she has disappeared. Macy intends to use a potion that will convince him and everyone around him that magic isn't real. After the Charmed Ones kidnap Julian, he explains that he saw Rosemary come to with his own eyes thanks to black amber. However, Macy discovers that Vivienne had duped Julian, due to the fact that black amber has been ineffective this whole time. Rosemary was brought back due to a sedative Vivienne gave her, which caused an inverse reaction and temporarily woke her from her coma. After realizing his aunt's betrayal, Julian turns on her and decides to help Macy and her sisters bring Vivienne down once and for all.

In "Someone's Going to Die", Julian disguises himself as Nadia in an attempt to infiltrate the Faction. He attempts to retrieve a prism to give the Charmed Ones, however Vivienne catches him before he can do so. Julian calls her out on her lies, but Vivienne petrifies half of him and leaves him for dead. Harry and Macy arrive soon after, and despite Harry's attempts to heal Julian, he passes away soon after. His death, along with Vivienne is reported as a lab accident.


Julian is a creative and a very straightforward person. He likes non-standard thinking people who are focused on science and art. Julian also has a good sense of humor.

It was also shown that he cares very much about his sister and all of humanity, as he wanted to get all magic to help people and save lives. However, he changed his mind about appropriating all the magic when he realized that his aunt had deceived him and black amber was not able to heal diseases. Julian was also shocked by Vivienne's insanity and her desire to take all magic for herself, even if it meant killing innocents. On his deathbed, Julian apologized to Macy for what he had done and was able to die in peace when he received her apology and forgiveness in return.
