Buffy Anne Summers -

HER STORY CONTINUES IN COMIC BOOKS

Angel/Angelus/Liam - See [Angel Characters]

Anya Christina Emmanuella Jenkins/Anyanka/Aud - She became a [vengeance demon] after turning her husband Olaf into a troll, in 880 the demon D'Hoffryn got a hold of Aud and made her Anyanka (Selfless), the Patron Saint of Scorned Women. 

Aud lived with her husband in the small village of Sjornjost and bred rabbits in their little house many, many, many rabbits. She was considered "weird" by the townspeople, who thought she spoke her mind and was annoying, making them not talk to her, at all, which bothered Aud very much. When Olaf cheated on her with the bar matron Rannveig, Aud cast a Thornton's Hope/Eelsbane spell and turned him into a troll. They met each other in 2001, when Willow, accidentally, released Olaf from a crystal (Triangle), where he had been imprisoned by witches for centuries; at the time, Anya said Olaf had been her "boyfriend".

Anyanka/Anya is the only being that survived an Ascension and we see her for the first time on the episode The Wish, when she is summoned by Cordelia, who makes a wish after being hurt by her boyfriend Xander. However, things go awfully wrong and Anyanka ends up trapped in our world when her pendant, source of all her power, is destroyed by Giles, making her become the human Anya. She does try to get her powers back, but fails and ultimately has to accept her fate of being human again.

The ex-demon falls in love with Xander and starts helping the Scoobies out, slaying as well as providing them with lots of information about the demon world. Not used to being human, she often speaks her mind, and can be very annoying by making awkward questions (like Aud used to do). 

Anya's only fear is of bunnies, she is proud to be an American, and loves to earn money. At some point, Giles hires her to work at the Magic Box and when he returns to England, she becomes the owner of the store.

Anya and Xander get engaged eventually,  but he winds up leaving the bride at the altar (Hell's Bells). Afterwards, she returns to her old demon self, accepting an offer from her old boss D'Hoffryn. Later, Anya/Anyanka and Spike, both deeply hurt by their lovers, get drunk together and have sex at the Magic Box (Entropy). Unfortunately for them, they are caught red-handed by Xander and Buffy, who watch their love-making through the camera Warren, Andrew and Jonathan have placed in the magic store to spy Buffy and the Scoobies. And, in the end of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer's season 6, although all the hard feelings, Anya/Anyanka helps the Scoobies to fight evil Willow, surprisingly showing great care for Buffy's Watcher, Giles, who had returned to Sunnydale.

After things return back to normal, Anyanka get down on her work as a Vengeance Demon, granting wishes to scorned women. Her favorite place to hang around is [The Bronze] and is there that the Scoobies and newly soulled Spike go to ask for her to undo a spell that turned a man (Ronnie) into a worm. After looking at Spike's eyes, Anyanka realizes the vampire has a soul and gets very excited about it. Spike freaks out, tells Anyanka to shut her mouth, and as she doesn't, they start fighting. Buffy interferes, fighting with Spike, but soon they have to stop and go after the girl (Nancy) whose boyfriend is now a worm. Xander stays with Anyanka and manages to convince her to undo the spell eventually (Beneath You); because Anyanka withdrew the vengeance spell, she is punished by her boss, losing her power of teleporting except for official business (Same Time, same Place). 

Later, Anyanka grants a wish that causes the death of a dozen young men in a fraternity (Selfless) and afterwards regrets it. When Buffy learns that Anyanka was responsible for the deaths, she is in Slayer mode and wants to kill Anyanka immediately, for Xander's chagrin. When Buffy and Anya are fighting to death, Anyanka's boss, D'Hoffryn, appears (he had been summoned by Willow) and Anyanka asks for him to undo the spell and give back the lives to the boys D'Hoffryn agrees, the wish is undone, but it takes "the life and the soul of a vengeance demon", the life of Anyanka's best friend Hallie. Anyanka becomes human again and continues to help the Scoobies. Never do she and Xander return to be a couple again; however, they have sex twice in the following months. Anya is killed by a Bringer in the final battle against the Turok-Hans, wounded by his sword. Unfortunately, Xander doesn't show much grief over her death; instead, he prefers to talk about "the destruction of Gap and Starbucks" (Chosen).

Spike - After being sired by Drusilla, William and his beloved Dru join vampires Angelus and Darla, and Spike learns from Angelus about the existence of Slayers. He becomes obsessed in killing them, managing to kill his first Slayer in China, in 1900, and a second one (Nikki) in New York, in 1977. Thus, it wouldn't be a surprise if Spike, soon or later, appeared in Sunnydale to try to kill Buffy Anne Summers.

Spike and Drusilla arrives in Sunnydale in 1997, and Spike tries to kill Buffy, but fails. To restore Dru's health (who is very sick after being chased by a mob in Prague), Spike learns that he needs to use her sire Angel in a ritual that will end up causing his death. Buffy manages to save Angel, but even so, the ritual works and Drusilla gets her strength back. However, Spike winds up severely injured after a church organ falls onto him.

In a wheelchair, Spike sees Angelus return and hit on his beloved Drusilla. The two of them brings back the demon Acathla, in order to destroy the world; Spike, already out of the weelchair, calls a truce and joins Buffy to stop their plan. In exchange, he and Drusilla have to leave Sunnydale for good.

However, after some time, Drusilla cheats on him with a Chaos Demon, which makes the vampire return to Sunnydale and, after killing the owner of the [Magic Box], kidnap Willow in order to force her to do a love spell. Eventually, he gives up and goes after Dru again, to no avail. He returns to Sunnydale then and his being in town ends up badly: Spike is captured by a governmental organization called [The Initiative], which implants a chip in his brain in order to neutralize him as a vampire Spike isn't able to hurt people anymore, because the chip causes an unbearable headache. After a while, he discovers that he can hurt other vampires and demons.

Spike keeps helping the Scoobies, first exchanging pieces of information and his muscles for money and supplies of blood, but as time goes by, he starts helping for free will. 

Initially, Spike loves unconditionally Drusilla, until the day she dumps him. Eventually, he gets madly in love with the Slayer and, being through a lot of changes (because of the chip and out of his love for Buffy), stops being the cruel vampire he used to be and starts behaving like a common mortal infatuated with a girl, trying to win her love. 

Spike finally gets what he wants after Buffy returns from the dead the Slayer is confused by having been torn out of Heaven and the only person she feels comfortable to talk to is the vampire. Eventually, they begin a troubled relationship, with him being used by her like a sex toy, until she decides to break up with him. 

Although saying he should move on, she doesn't like very much to see him with a date at Anya's wedding, or, later, having sex with Anya at the Magic Box, making him believe she does love him. When he looks for her in order to apologize, things go awfully wrong and he ends up forcing himself on her (Seeing Red). Afterwards, he feels so guilty, that it makes him to leave Sunnydale and go to Africa, where he fights for a soul.

Four months go by, and one day Buffy finds Spike living in the basement of the brand-new [Sunnydale High], insane, supposedly because of the soul (Lessons). After a week, he shows up in her house, completely sane, offering his help to fight a monster. However, after hurting a human (not on purpose), Spike loses it again. Eventually, Spike/William and Buffy find themselves in a church and he reveals that he went after a soul out of love for her (Beneath You).

After some weeks, Buffy arranges for Spike get out of the basement and go to live with a not-very-happy Xander. Soon, Spike is caught killing and siring people again (Sleeper), but Buffy finds out he has been manipulated by some evil force, and spares his unlife. Later, the Scoobies figure out that the [First Evil] brainwashed the vampire and is using a song as a "trigger" to make him kill. Buffy says to Spike she "believes in him, that he is a good man." Before they could do something about the trigger, the [Bringers] kidnap Spike from Buffy's house (Never Leave Me), and the [Turok-Han],following orders from the First Evil (morphed as Drusilla and Buffy), tortures Spike, to make him choose their side, the side of evil. He is brave and endures the trial; he knows Buffy will come for him and she does rescue him. (Showtime). 

Spike, now free, starts helping Buffy to train the Slayers in Training, who are coming from all over the world and staying in Buffy's house for protection. (Potential).

But the pain is far from over for Spike; suddenly, his chip starts malfunctioning, giving him horrible headaches. He will die if anything is done. Buffy calls Riley Finn/The Initiative, Riley sends soldiers and doctors, and the chip is removed according to Buffy's choice (The Killer in Me).

Spike and the Scooby Gang learn that the First "has plans for Spike" and the vampire says to Buffy he should leave Sunnydale; however, the Slayer tells him to stay because she isn't ready to not have him around (First Date).

The chip is gone, but the First's control over Spike isn't. Giles brings home a Procaryote stone, which enters in Spike's brain and helps the vampire to find out the root of the trigger's power. After the process, Spike remembers the song used by the First, an old English tune called Early One Morning, his mum's favorite. Spike, having issues about his past, doesn't want to collaborate with the Scoobies and keeps saying that the song doesn't mean anything to him, which isn't true, at all. Soon after William is sired by Drusilla, he goes for his mother and sires her, out of love, in order for them to live together forever. However, his sweet mother turns into an evil monster, saying and doing horrible things to him, making him kill her eventually. Those things weigh on him for quite some time, because he didn't realize they were words from a demon, not from his real mother. Only after Principal Robin Wood, son of the Slayer Spike killed in New York, seeks revenge and tries to kill Spike, this truth sinks in and Spike, aware that he was very much love by his mum, is finally de-triggered. The vampire bites Wood, but spares his life, "on account I killed his mother" (Lies My Parents Told Me).

The battle against the First Evil is getting worse. A new villain appears in town Caleb and he is trying to keep something very valuable from the Slayer. Buffy, Faith (who had escaped from prison to help the Fang Gang in Los Angeles), the SITs and Spike go for him and the aftermath is disastrous Xander loses an eye and two SITs die (Dirty Girls). 

The next day, the Scoobies and the SITs decide that Buffy shouldn't lead them anymore, and force her to get out of her own house (Empty Places). 

When Spike finds out what they have done to Buffy (he wasn't in the house at the time), he gets very mad at them, and goes after the Slayer. He finds her in an empty house. She tells him to go away, she is very tired and has given up the fight. Spike stands by her, gives her strength, says she is a "hell of a woman". Buffy is moved by Spike's words, and cries. They spend the night together, and the next morning the Slayer is back she goes after Caleb and finds out a powerful weapon he was trying to keep from her a [Scythe],forged centuries ago by women who watched the Watchers (Touched).

Buffy tells Spike she has the Scythe because of him, because of the strength he gave her the night before. Spike says to Buffy he is terrified all he did was hold her and watch her sleep, and it was the best night of his life. She says he doesn't need to be terrified, she was there with him. She implies that, after the war against the First is over, they can be together (End of Days).

Angel comes from Los Angeles and gives Buffy an [amulet] that is very powerful, something that will help to fight evil. He offers to stay and fight beside her, but Buffy sends him away. Buffy chooses Spike as her Champion, giving him the amulet; the two of them spend the two nights before the Big Battle together. Buffy has decided to go to the Hellmouth and close it for good. When the day has come, she, Faith, the SITs and Spike (wearing the amulet) open the [Sealof Danzalthar] and find a huge cave, where thousands of Turok Hans are ready for battle. Using the power of the Scythe weapon that Buffy conquered because of the strength Spike gave her Willow does a spell that turns every SIT in the world into a Slayer. The war starts, and Buffy, Faith, the new Slayers, and Spike are managing to beat the Turok-Hans back; but there are thousands of them, and eventually, they would lose. Suddenly, the amulet starts working, pinning Spike in place, right above the Seal of Danzalthar. Spike, thrilled, tells Buffy he can feel his soul. From him, beams of golden light starts to pour, killing the Turok-Hans Spike is glowing, EFFULGENT. The cavern begins to collapse; everybody run away, except for Buffy and Spike. He tells her to go and she says he has done enough, he has to leave the place with her. He refuses, saying he must do the clean up. Buffy tells him she loves him; Spike says she doesn't, but thanks her for saying it. The entire Sunnydale is collapsing; Buffy barely manages to escape. Spike, the Champion, the Chosen One, dies in the cavern, laughing. The Hellmouth is closed for business. He defeated Evil. He is redeemed (Chosen).

Nineteen days have gone by since Sunnydale was destroyed when, in his office at [Wolfram & Hart], Angel opens an envelope and the amulet he had given to Buffy falls onto the floor. From it, Spike appears, yelling in pain and burning from inside the essence of the vampire with a soul got trapped inside the object (Angel/Conviction). Not being able to leave Los Angeles (the amulet is owned by the evil firm and he is attached to it) Spike stays with the Fang Gang and helps them fight evil; [Fred], who sympathizes with (Champion) Spike from start, works hard to make him corporeal again, but don't succeed. One day, without notice, another mail a box arrives at Wolfram & Hart and makes the vampire corporeal again (Angel/Destiny). Although having the desire to go looking for Buffy in Europe, Spike decides to stay in Los Angeles, eventually. He works with the Fang Gang, honoring his Championship till the very end of the show, because for him, unlife goes on (Angel/Not Fade Away).
