Changelings are a species of elf-like demons with pale skin and pointy ears. They are connected to the forests in which they dwell. Changelings are known to place their young in the homes of mortals so they can grow up in safety. The replaced children are taken away and their life force is added to the forest.


A group of changelings living in the forests near San Francisco started abducting children and replaced them with their own. When a young mother became convinced her son was replaced, Darryl Morris called Paige Matthews for help. When Paige told her sisters, Phoebe remembered the folklore of the changelings. Paige then cast a spell on the child to reveal it was indeed a changeling.

The sisters located another changeling and followed it to the others. The changelings attacked the sisters and nearly overwhelmed them. When Paige realized their strength was tied to the forest, Piper blew up their tree, thus destroying the changelings. The replaced children were returned to their parents and Charlie erased their memories.
