Only a handful of people in the world know about the existence of magic and an even smaller portion practice it. There are Witches and Warlocks who use incantations, charms, and potions to work their spells, but they aren't born with magic as a part of them. Magic-users born with magical powers are known as Sorcerers. Sorcerers used to rule the world with justice and integrity, their power unmatched by anyone else. However, some Sorcerers became consumed by greed and lust, they abused the power fate had dealt them. When this happened the reign of all Sorcerers, good and bad, was toppled by power hungry mages who were desperate to gain the power these people were born with.
In this modern age, Sorcerers are practically extinct. The ones who practice their magic are hunted down to gain their power, but most are completely unaware of the power they have. Jackie Piper (Willa Holland), is one of these Sorcerers. When she uses her powers for the first time, it puts her on the radar of the most famous and powerful magic-users in the world who want nothing more than to snuff her out and take the powers she has just discovered.
Jackie finds sanctuary amongst a group of witches and warlocks called "Slayers" (James Mcavoy, Alex Pettyfer, Teresa Palmer, Summer Glau, and Jason Dohring) whose calling has been to hunt down rogue dark creatures and to keep the magical world in order. The coven recognizes Jackie's power and promises to keep her safe as long as her life is in danger.
Signs begin to appear that something dark and evil is beginning to rise again, leaving Jackie and the Slayers caught in the middle of it.
Jackie Piper ( Willa Holland ) --- A quick-witted, curious, and kind girl who has lived her entire life believing she is nothing more than average. She isn't sure what she wants to do with her life and when her friends go off to school and she is left working a job and feeling like the world is passing her by until she discovers her magic and is thrown into a strange new world.
Noah Black ( James McAvoy) --- Genius, brave, and self sacrificing, Noah is the quietest member of the group, but also the most responsible. He is the leader the small coven and cares greatly for each and every member like they were his family. He has seen and done a lot in his time and much of it he isn't proud of. He doesn't talk about his past too much and is something of a mystery.
Garrett Black (Alex Pettyfer)--- Rowdy, blunt, and sometimes a little selfish Garret is the exact opposite of his brother Noah. He cares a lot of about his family, but would never let them know it. He has a casual air to him but if somebody he loved was in danger he would kill the person who put them in that position. He likes picking on his family but to him it is all in good nature and if they are offended that is their problem. In private he is much more loving than his public persona.
Elizabeth Ryder (Summer Glau)--- Tough, caring, and ,impatient Liz is like the mother of the group. She does the cooking and keeps everything in the house running smoothly. She has quite a temper if there is a fight going on she is usually the one who puts an end to it and not in a very nice way. She is a good listener when she wants to be and does her best to advise her little family. She doesn't trust newcomers too much and it takes awhile for her to warm up to them.
Gabrielle James (Teresa Palmer) --- Fun-loving, reckless, and boisterous Gabrielle is the life of the party. She finds a silver lining in any situation and always does her best to lighten a dark mood. However, for the happy facade she puts on Gabrielle has a lot of dark past she keeps bottled up inside. She doesn't wear her emotions on her sleeves and can actually be the scariest of their number if the happy goes away.
Blaine Townshend( Jason Dohring) --- Sarcastic, but smart, and supportive Blaine is one of the most easy going of the group. He didn't grow up in the world of magic like much of the other coven and does his best to help out even if he is less experienced. He doesn't have a dark past to hide or a temper and generally just gets along with everyone.
Medea ( Penelope Cruz)--- A legendary and powerful witch, Medea hates all mortals. She is cruel, manipulative, and vindictive. She is determined to have her revenge on her enemies and even more determined to gain back her lost power.
Mal (Julian McMahon)--- Rough, determined, and bordering on harsh Mal is not the best person to be teaching a young sorceress the ways of magic, but he is the most powerful, the most willing, and the least afraid of any other candidates. He looks in the face of danger and laughs, and doesn't back down from anything.
Camille Piper (Laura San Giacomo)--- Protective, opinionated, and loud, Camille often embarrasses her daughter with her antics. Still the two have a very loving relationship and they are very close.
Isaac Van Helsing (Zachary Levi)--- Smart, resourceful, and a little awkward, Isaac has grown up in the world of vampire hunting. Unlike the slayers he prefers doing his work without magic relying instead on the weapons his ancestors discovered work best on the "children of the night" Also unlike the Slayers in his downtime he'd prefer a Star War marathon to anything else.

NOTES FROM THE CREATOR
This is an idea that has been floating around in my head for awhile. Ever since I was a kid I have loved all different kinds of mythology and this show is a way to incorporate the various kinds of myths that I love as well as put an original spin on it all. It is still in development and I am working on the Pilot right now for everyone to read. Reviews good or bad would be much appreciated. Thanks!
