with a folder with some information
about Sunnydale, in exchange for a new life for
his son Connor, and medical
and mystical care for Cordelia.
In handing the
amulet (a Wolfram

says that it "apparently it's
crucial for some kind of final battle". At
first, Angel wants to keep neither
the file nor the amulet, and says that "Buffy

leather duster that Spike took from the second
Slayer he killed, in 1977
(Fool for Love), was the trade
mark of the "evil vampire".
He left the coat behind, in Buffy's house,
after forcing himself on her
in the bathroom (Seeing Red);
afterwards, he left Sunnydale
to seek out a soul. Without any reasonable
explanation, the duster appeared
at Sunnydale High; after listening Buffy tell
him that "he is holding back
since he got his soul back", and that what she
wanted was "the dangerous

in Los Angeles still wearing it (Angel/Conviction).
about how the duster could have ended up in
the school basement: when Buffy
and Clem met at the demon bar (Potential),
they greeted each
other effusively, as they were old, good
friends; then, Clem said to Buffy
he watched a show on the History Channel she
would have loved. How could
he know that? So, it's possible that during
the summer, Buffy kept going
to Spike's crypt to check if the vampire was
back in town and sometimes
she would stay there, watching TV with Clem.
She could have taken the duster
to the crypt, and later, Clem gave it to
soulled Spike, who was living
in the school. Also, the demon should have
told Spike about what Willow
had done to Warren, because the vampire knew
about the flaying

Du Lac - Theologian and mathematician
who belonged to a religious sect
that was excommunicated by the Vatican at the
end of the 19th century.
He authored a book that was said to contain
rituals and spells that reap
unspeakable evil; it was written in archaic
Latin so that nobody but the
sect members could understand it. Du Lac also
invented the "Du Lac Cross"
in order to use it to understand mystical
texts and to decipher hidden
meanings. Before his death, he destroyed every
cross except one, which
was buried with him in Sunnydale. As there
was a ritual to restore a
weak and sick vampire back to full health
described in the book, Spike
had it stolen from Sunnydale High's library as
well as the cross from Du
Lac's tomb, in order to perform the ritual to
restore Drusilla's health

Key - The
key is very old and it was created to open the
gates that separate dimensions.
Where it came from, how it was created, is the
deepest of mysteries; all
that is certain is that its power is absolute.
It is not
directly described in any
known literature, but all research indicates a
green energy matrix vibrating
at a dimensional frequency beyond normal human
perception. Only those outside
reality (second-sight people, mad people etc)
can see the Key's true nature.
It is is also susceptible to necromanced animal

Box - The store (5124 Maple Court,
downtown Sunnydale) had a sinister

Mr. Bogarty, by Harmony's
gang (The Real Me) and the woman
who preceded him, by Spike
Walk). Giles bought the Magic Box
after being dismissed from his
duties as Buffy's Watcher. To help him out, he
hired Anya; when he returned
to England (after Buffy's death), she took
over the store. In the back,
there was a gymnasium in order for Buffy to
work out and in its basement
there was a passage to the Sunnydale sewers.
The Magic Box was destroyed
when Buffy, Giles and Anya had to fight Dark
Willow in there (Two
to Go and Gone).
Edith - Vampire Drusilla, Spike's mate
for more than 100 years, loves
to collect dolls. Her favorite, Miss Edith,
appeared, for the first time,
in School Hard. In Lover's
Walk, Spike (after
being dumped by Dru) returns to Sunnydale and
to the old burned-out factory
where he and Dru used to live, and there he
finds Drusilla's doll collection
that didn't survive the fire piled on her
dresser. He picks up one of them
and, as the doll reminds him his beloved Dru,
he ends up smashing it with
a candlestick. In Crush, a doll
can be seen in the train
car where several passengers have just been
killed by a vampire which
gives us the clue that the killer is Dru.
Kitty Fantastico - Willow and Tara's
cat. In New Moon Rising
Tara suggested to Willow that they should get
a cat and name it "Trixie"
or "Miss Kitty Fantastico"; Willow, although
being a "dog person", thought
it was a good idea. At the time, the two of
them were living at the US
Sunnydale campus, and pets weren't allowed in
the dorms; so, Tara said
"it would be a sneaky cat." It seems that the
poor animal was wounded by
a cross-bow left around "all willy-nilly" by
Dawn as we learn on End
Gordo - Buffy's little stuffed
It made his
debut in What's My Line 1 Angel
was in Buffy's bedroom,
looking around while he waited for her to get
home and he took her stuffed

window) and asked if he
was "Just dropping by for some quality time
with Mr. Gordo." Angel
didn't get it and Buffy explained that Mr.
Gordo was the stuffed pig.

Founded by Tarnis, among others, in the 12th
century. Its sole purpose
appears to have been protectors of the Key.
Taraka - Society of deadly assassins
bounty hunters dating back
to King Solomon. They have no earthly desires,
but to collect their bounty.
They don't stop until the job is done. Some are
human, some are not; they
can be recognized by a ring they use. Spike
summoned three of them to get
rid of Buffy, who was keeping him from complete
Drusilla's cure (What's
My Line 1).
- There were some mysterious paintings on the
wall of the African cave
where Spike fought for his soul (Villains),
that seemed to
show Tara's death and Willow's vengeance against
Warren. The mystery was
solved when Willow summoned D'Hoffryn, and the
demon told her that "the
flaying of Warren Mears was truly inspired,
water cooler vengeance, and
Lloyd has a sketch of it on his wall" (Selfless).
Fans noticed that and published on the Internet
the following photo comparison:
Codex - Contained the most
complete prophecies about the Slayer's
role in the end years. Giles believed that the
book had been lost in the
15th century; however, Angel knew it was just
"misplaced" and handed it
to Giles (Invisible Girl). In
the Codex was written that
Buffy would die at the hands of the Master
and the prophecy was fulfilled

- Powerful she-demon whose satanic temple was
located on Kingman's Bluff.
Her followers intended to use her effigy to
destroy the world, but they
all died when the temple got swallowed up in
the earthquake of 1932. In
2002, Willow tried to destroy the world by
bringing the temple out of the
ground; she would drain the planet's life
force, funneling its energy through
Proserpexa's effigy in order to burn the Earth
to a cinder, but Xander
managed to stop her by giving the infamous
"yellow crayon" speech (Grave).
- Sort of a scavenger demon that can be
summoned to kill the mad. Primitive
people used to believe that the moon was a
cause of insanity; sometimes
they would pray to the moon to send a special
meteor (with the demon inside)
to fix the problem the moon had caused these
meteors were expected to
quell the madmen. One of them was summoned by
Ben in 2000, in order to
kill all the people who went crazy after been
attacked by [Glory]
(Listening to Fear).
- An Irish symbol of Love, Friendship and
Loyalty, it depicts two hands
(Friendship) clutching a heart (Love),
complete with a crown (Loyalty).
The story of
the ring began over 300 years ago in the
village of Claddagh, in Ireland.
Legend tells that Richard Joyce was captured
by pirates and worked as a
slave in the property of a rich Turkish
goldsmith. Joyce ended up becoming
a master craftsman himself and, after being
released from slavery, returned
to Galway and created the ring.
Ring worn on the right hand, with the heart
facing outwards, means that
one's heart has not yet been won; worn on the
right hand, with the heart
facing inwards, shows one have friendship and
love under consideration;
worn on the left hand, with the heart turned
inwards, tells that one has
already found love.
Buffy a Claddagh, right before he had his
moment of true happiness which
made him lose his soul (Surprise):

I... I was

My people before I was changed
they exchanged this as a
devotion. It's a Claddagh Ring. The hands
represents loyalty... and the heart... Well,
you know... Wear
the heart pointing towards you. It means you
belong to somebody.
Some time after
having sent Angel/Angelus to hell (Becoming
2), Buffy visits
the mansion he used to live, lays down her

a portal opens and Angel is back to our
reality, naked and scared, after
suffering 100 years in hell (Faith, Hope

of Amara - The vampire equivalent
of the Holy Grail; it made them
truly immortals, immune to the sun light and
wooden stakes. According to
Giles, questing vampires combed the earth, but
as no one ever found anything,
it was concluded that it never existed.
However, in 1999, Spike and Harmony
appeared in Sunnydale looking for it. Giles
researched and found a text
that read the gem was "residing in the valley
of the sun", meaning Sunnydale.
Spike found it in a sealed underground crypt,
but eventually lost it to
Buffy. Oz took the Gem to Angel, in Los
Angeles, and Spike went after it.
He hired a vampire, Marcus, to torture Angel,
and he ended up stealing
the Gem from Spike. Angel fought Marcus, took
the Gem and destroyed it,
to avoid its use by evil things.
Gang - Buffy, Xander e Willow are the
core Scoobies, a reference
to the cartoon [Scooby

always stopped by the coward dog

of Danzalthar - Seal that was located in
the basement of the then brand-new
Sunnydale High School (rebuild in 2002), right
on top of the Hellmouth.
The Seal is
found by Andrew and Jonathan
(remainings of the Troika). Haunted by The First
Evil (shape shifted into
Warren), Andrew killed Jonathan in an attempt to
open it and release something
very bad. However, the sacrifice of Jonathan is
useless there isn't enough
blood (Conversations With Dead People),
and the First ends
up using Spike to open the Seal and set free a
Turok-Han, the "real vampire"
(Never Leave Me). Later, the
Scoobies bury the Seal again
(Bring On The Night), which
doesn't prevent the thing from
starting emanating an evil influence over the
school; Buffy has to return
to the basement, this time taking Andrew with
her. There is chaos everywhere,
the students are all crazy; Buffy scares the
hell out of Andrew, making
him cry over the Seal; his tears stop the
influence and the chaos (Showtime).
the Seal isn't let alone for much time a
female demon uses Xander's
blood to open it again, in order to get her very
own Turok-Han. Fortunately,
Buffy and Spike manages to stop her in time, and
save Xander's life (First
Date). Eventually, Buffy, Faith and
the SITs open the Seal and
enter the Hellmouth to fight an army of
Turok-Hans, assembled by the First
Evil, and the thing is definitely closed by
Spike, who sacrifices his life
in the process (Chosen).

to kill the last pure demon that walked upon
the earth. It was kept hidden
from the Shadow Men, who later became the
Watchers, who watched the Slayers.
The Guardians watched the Watchers, and wanted
to help and protected the
Slayers. These women put the Scythe in a rock,
for when the time came and
it was needed again, the Slayer would find and
use it wisely. Buffy pulled
it out of the rock in a vineyard in Sunnydale,
in 2003, after Spike had
found out an inscription carved in stone, in a
secret room in an abandoned
mission in Gilroy (the Scoobies had done a
research and found out about
the place). It read "It is not for thee. It is
for her alone to wield."
With this weapon in her hands, Buffy managed
to kill Caleb who had merged
