Buffy the vampire Slayer
- Me, Myself, and I
© ORIGINAL PROFILE ®
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated American cult television series that initially aired from March 10, 1997 until May 20, 2003. It was created by writer-director Joss Whedon under his production tag, Mutant Enemy. The series narrative follows Buffy Anne Summers (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar), the latest in a line of young women chosen by fate to battle against vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness. Like previous slayers, Buffy is aided by a Watcher, who guides and trains her. Unlike her predecessors, Buffy surrounds herself with a circle of loyal friends who become known as the "Scooby Gang."
Buffy was born to Hank and Joyce Summers on January 19, 1981, in Los Angeles, California. In the Season Two episode Killed by Death, it is revealed that, at the age of eight, Buffy was close friends with her cousin Celia, and enjoyed playing superhero with her; Buffy pretended to be Power Girl, a prophetic choice of alter ego. She looked on helplessly as Celia was murdered by a demon that killed sick children and was only visible to those who were ill, an experience which instilled a fear of hospitals in Buffy. Buffy came to idolize Olympic ice skater Dorothy Hamill as she learned the sport. She became a popular cheerleader at Hemery High School in Los Angeles. During her time at Hemery (1995-1997), Buffy was elected both Prom Princess and Fiesta Queen.
The details of how Buffy learned she was the Slayer were first presented in the 1992 movie. However, as this movie is not considered canon in the Buffyverse, Christopher Golden adapted Joss Whedon's original script into a canonical comic book entitled The Origin. In the comic, a fifteen-year-old Buffy is having violent dreams about women from different period of history slaying monsters. One day, she is approached by Merrick Jamison-Smythe, a mysterious man who reveals her destiny as the Chosen One and becomes her first Watcher (this scene can also be seen in the Season Two episode "Becoming, Part One"). With little training, and help from her friend Oliver Pike, Buffy defeats her first major enemy, a vampire leader named Lothos, but not before the death of Merrick. In a battle with Lothos' vampiric lackeys, Buffy sets fire to the high school gym and is subsequently expelled.
In the Season Six episode "Normal Again", it is revealed that, shortly after her expulsion, Buffy confided in her parents about what really had happened and her destiny as the Slayer. Worried that she was losing her mind, Buffy's parents sent her to a mental institution. While there, Buffy realized that attempts to persuade others of the existence of demonic forces would be futile. She kept quiet and was released after a couple of weeks. Buffy and her parents never spoke of it again. Joyce and Hank, who had been experiencing marital troubles for years, finally divorced, and Buffy moved with her mother to 1630 Revello Drive in Sunnydale, a small town in California.
