Priyanka Bari was an Elder who helped Macy Vaughn learn more about her inner demon before being killed by fellow Elder, Charity Callahan. She was at first under the protection of disguise — given the death of fellow Elders — however against Charity's advice, she revealed herself to the Charmed Ones, finding Macy's past too interesting to miss out on.
Priyanka was one of the Elders who met with Charity and Macy to discuss Macy’s growing demon side in Switches & Stones. Later, she examined Macy and realized her demonic side had provided her with a rare and useful power called the Evil Sight, which allowed her to see events through the eyes of evil. She activated this ability with a special needle to make Macy find out who really killed her mother, Marisol Vera. Once it was found out that Marisol had been killed by Charity, Priyanka is immediately killed by her fellow Elder.
In Memento Mori, Macy found Priyanka's corpse hidden in a large trunk in the attic.
Priyanka was a kind and sophisticated woman who spoke with an air of joy and business at the same time. She was very caring in her interactions with Macy, attempting to help her understand her new demonic side and answer her questions as best she could, and was willing to risk removing a cloaking spell to carry on a conversation with Macy.
She was extremely pragmatic, having a more nuanced view on magical heritage. She considered the fact that Macy having the power of The Evil Sight to be something positive, due that this power is extremely helpful in tracking evil and she planned to help Macy use it to discovery the identity of the serial killer targeting Elders.
Priyanka was a beautiful woman seemingly in her thirties with fair complexion, full lips and long black hair that was kept contained in a bun.
