The Elders are some of the most powerful magical beings in the "good" community. They advise witches and create whitelighters. Their sole purpose is to keep the order of good in balance. Often referred to as "The greater Good". This can often lead to things that are by no circumstances considered good during that time, but in the long run will serve to keep the world in balance. In 1000b.c. the Elders turned a few mortals into Greek Gods to defeat the Titans, who the Elders thought would destroy the world. The Charmed ones first find out about the Elders when Phoebe
