Javna was a low-level demon who, by invoking the black magic power of the evil eye, stole the life force from many young women to regain his youth. Once drained, he left his victims appearing frail and elderly. However, their youth was completely restored when he was vanquished by the Charmed Ones in October of 1998.

Sometime in late 1998, Javna lured Phoebe Halliwell to his studio to steal her youth. Posing as Stefan he had charmed Phoebe, making it seem as if he was very interested in photographing her. Phoebe was no match for Stefan's handsome looks and smooth talks and thus went to her "photo shoot" later that evening. When she arrived at the studio, Phoebe got a premonition when she touched the doorknob. She ran immediately to the car, but as soon as she tried to start the vehicle, Javna kidnapped her to his studio. VanquishEdit Phoebe: "Wait, Stefan or whoever you are, let me go." Javna: "It's Javna." — Javna and Phoebe, shortly before his vanquish.[src] AliasEdit
Stefan with Phoebe Stefan is the name that Javna used when he regained his youth. He posed as a famous photographer to attract women, making them believe that he was interested in photographing them. As Stefan, Javna would meet the women in person, charm them and lure them back to his studio where he would eventually steal their youth.

Javna feeds one week out of every year, stealing the life force from the young... ...by invoking the black magic power of The Evil Eye to gain eternal youth. The Hand of FatimaEdit
The Prophet Mohammed invoked the Hand of Fatima centuries ago to banish Javna back to Hell. Vanquishing SpellEdit To Invoke the Hand of FatimaEdit
This Power of Three spell invokes the Hand of Fatima to vanquish Javna. When the spell is cast, the animals that appear in the drawing of the spell's entry appear on the caster's hand. The animals' magic combine in a single energy beam which emerges from the caster's hand and in turn incinerates Javna to death. Evil eyes look unto thee, May they soon extinguish be, Bend thy will to the Power of Three, Eye of Earth, evil and accursed. NotesEdit
The entry on a post-it. Prue listed Javna as a "Level One Demon" on her suspects list, therefore classifying him as low-level. Javna might be connected with Gypsy magic as he tapped into the black magic power of the evil eye. It was later revealed that the evil eye, also called "Waffediyok" is an ancient Gypsy symbol used by Shuvani's. Javna's Book of Shadows entry did not exist until after the episode was filmed. Holly Marie Combs, who portrays Piper Halliwell in the series, had to read the entry from a post-it whilst filming the scene. The post-it can be seen when she turns the pages to the Hand of Fatima entry. The entry was seen for the first time in the season 1 episode "From Fear to Eternity". The remaining foam latex prosthetic masks for Javna's face were sold on eBay sometime in 2009. Appearances
