Mediumship was created by Brad Kern for the hit tv-series Charmed. However, all traits in Destined belong to Sol.
Mediumship is the ability to perceive and communicate with spirits. Most, but not all, magical beings possess this ability, including witches and gypsies.


The Charmed Ones first discovered they possessed mediumship when they met the ghost Mark Chao, as they were the only ones capable of seeing him. Phoebe and her sisters could also see the ghost of Charlene Hughes, who was invisible to the Libris that killed her.

Paige saw ghosts for the first time when she saw Nathan Lang.

Magical gypsies also possess mediumship. Shorty after she was killed, Lydia Nicolae appeared before her niece Ava. Gypsies call these appearances a mulo.
