Character Review: Leo Wyatt (contains minor spoilers for next season)
Leo was born May 6, 1924 in San Francisco, California, the son of Christopher Wyatt, and grew up in Burlingame, CaliforniaLeo was once a medic for the United States Army in World War II. He was also married during this time, to a woman named Lillian. While taking part in the Battle of Guadalcanal, two friends of his, brothers named Nathan and Rick were killed, on November 14, 1942. Upon his own death a short time later, Leo became a whitelighter for his good deeds. Leo is a pacifist, disallowed by the Elders to kill. Leo has watched over many of his charges: those who were future Whitelighters and good witches. After his death, he went to Lillian in a dream and encouraged her to move on with her life.  In the late 60s, Leo befriended Penny and Allen Halliwell, the grandmother and grandfather of the Charmed Ones. One of his fellow trainees was a woman named Natalie, with whom Leo became good friends after World War II.  Leo was sent by the Elders as the Whitelighter of the Charmed Ones. Because he wasn't supposed to reveal himself as a Whitelighter to them yet, Leo got a job from the sisters as a handyman fixing up their old house. Phoebe and Piper immediately became attracted to him. As Leo worked on their house, Piper and Phoebe competed for his attention, though he found favor in Piper, and Phoebe was only attempting to make both Piper and Leo jealous. Piper invited him for dinner at Quake to look over stain samples to refinish the wood in the house.  Although Piper and Leo started dating and consummated their relationship, he had to leave her because relationships between witches and whitelighters were not allowed. Leo was forced to be given another charge, but he watched over and guided the Charmed Ones on many occasions.  When Leo returned, Phoebe discovered him using his levitation to change a light bulb and he confessed the truth to her. He was later injured by a Darklighter's poison arrow, attempting to protect his charge Daisy, and went to the manor for aid, where Piper learned he was a whitelighter. Piper used a spell to switch powers with Leo, so she could heal him while Phoebe and Prue protected Daisy and vanquished the darklighter in love with Daisy. Although Leo offered to give up being a whitelighter to be with Piper, she didn't want him to turn away from his calling.  Piper went to the future with Phoebe and Prue, and learned that she and Leo were divorced, and they had a daughter named Melinda HalliwellPiper tried to move on, and started a romance with her new neighbor Dan GordonThe Elders have a rule of not healing when the injury/disease is not caused by a demon. Leo broke that rule when he saved Piper from a deadly disease. Because of that, Leo was suspended from being a whitelighter for at least three months.  Leo eventually earned his wings back as well as Piper's heart. He asked Piper to marry him when they got back from the Whitelighter Dimension.  A warlock named Eames was killing many witches and other supernatural beings to reach his great goal. A whitelighter named Natalie went to Leo and the Charmed Ones for help. Phoebe had confided in Leo that she didn't really vanquish Cole. The Whitelighter Elders were so happy with the Charmed Ones performance against Eames they lifted their probation on Leo and allowed him to be engaged to Piper.  The ceremony was performed by Grams, and the Elders allowed Patricia Halliwell to return from the dead for one day to witness her daughter's wedding. The ceremony was also attended by Phoebe Halliwell, Prue Halliwell, Victor Bennett, Cole Turner and Darryl Morris. Although the marriage was considered legal in the magical world, it was not in the mortal world, due to Leo and Grams' status as being legally dead.  Soon after, Piper became pregnant, she and Leo had their powers swapped by their unborn baby for a short time, until they learned to appreciate how hard each other's lives are. Piper gave birth to their son, Wyatt Matthew Halliwell. Piper named the baby Wyatt after Leo's last name for being a very protective father and to honor his past life.  When Piper and Leo's arguing began affecting Piper's powers, Phoebe suggested that they visit a marriage counselor. Piper cast a spell that allowed them to relive the good and difficult times during their relationship, which reminded them of why they got married. But as well as reaffirming their relationship, the session allowed them to realize that they had issues to work out.  Leo's marriage to Piper was turbulent, especially when he became promoted to an Elder after saving them. As an Elder, Leo was not allowed to live with his family, though he promised always to watch over them. However, Leo is highly mistrustful of the new whitelighter Chris Perry, and stays involved in the family's life as he tries to figure Chris out. Chris seems no more fond of Leo than Leo is of Chris, though later, when it is revealed that Chris is actually Leo and Piper's second son. Chris admits that Leo was always there for Wyatt, for the Charmed Ones, but never for him, as he was often eclipsed by Wyatt's "Chosen One" and ultimate power status. Chris's presence in the past, coupled with his unerring dedication to saving little Wyatt from the evil that corrupts him, helps them mend the relationship.  Leo loses him, however, when Chris is stabbed by Gideon, a fellow Elder and the headmaster of Magic School. At that point he has realized that Gideon was the one trying to kill Wyatt. Leo also realizes that Barbas had cornered him and made him live his worst fear - killing an elder and the older (evil) Wyatt killing him. He realized that Barbas must have been working with Gideon. While he has lost Chris, he still has the opportunity to save Wyatt, and goes after Gideon, killing him and saving Wyatt from becoming evil. While on the run and hiding the truth from the other Elders, Leo becomes reunited with his family, Leo eventually clips his wings and becomes the headmaster of Magic School, staying with his family.  In season eight, Leo is taken by the Angel of Destiny in exchange for his life, so that Piper will be motivated to fulfill her ultimate destiny. He is returned to her briefly when she and Billie alone survive the great battle, taking her away to Phoebe's condo and bringing her back to rationality. He is taken away again when Piper goes back in time, but is ultimately reunited with his family, living to see his grandchildren with Piper.
