When Rupert Giles
came to America, he came with a purpose: to stop the killing. After doing extensive research on the subject, he learned that the Hellmouth, a site of mystical convergence existed in Sunnydale, California.
Being a wealthy man, he bought himself the nearest mansion and set up shop, preparing for the day he would approach a Ms. Buffy Summers.
He worked alongside the Initiative [Maggie and Adam Walsh
], a duo known for their pretentious need to identify themselves as some anonymous entity, and came up with a research facility, underground. His wife, the American Jennifer Calendar
, helped establish a computer system which filed all the evils that they were to fight.
When all was prepared, the mansion - which is haunted by a spirit named Dennis
- welcomed several new arrivals:Xander Harris
- Giles' ward, who Jenny took a quick shining to.Anya Jenkins
- The former vengeance demon who kept house, as well as being an authority on demon languages.Cordelia Chase
- A woman with powerful visions, capable of predicting the nearest danger, and with a latent telekinetic ability.Tara Maclay
- An eager research assistant.Riley Finn
- A former military man, with a wandering (into closets) spirit.Joyce Summers
- A caring mom who objected to her daughter being in a superhero "gang." She was sent to live inside the wall of the mansion, to "keep watch."
And the four champions:Buffy Summers
- The Slayer.Spike T. Bloody
- The vampire with a chip in his head; incapable of causing harm to anyone but demons.Willow Rosenberg
- A powerful witch.Oz Osbourne
- A werewolf, who learned to control his changing through tantric sexual practices.
And they are here to fight said evil.
And evil... won't win, probably.
