The Slayer

In 1845, Boston shipyards were plagued by a series of grisly murders. The attacks ended when a quiet young woman arrived in town.

In 1893, in the Oklahoma Territory, a series of savage attacks claimed the lives of 17 homesteaders. The murders stopped when a young woman blacksmith passed through town.

In 1997 Sunnydale, California is on the brink of ruin. Can another girl come to the rescue?

"As long as there have been demons, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world, a Chosen one, born with the strength and skill to hunt vampires and other deadly creatures, to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. When one Slayer dies, the next is called and trained by the Watcher."

Think we've heard that line often enough?

A Watcher serves by finding the next Slayer, training and supervising her actions. It is the destiny of the Watcher to guide the Slayer.

In the words of librarian Rupert Giles, "This world is older than any of you know, and contrary to popular mythology, it did not begin as a paradise. For untold eons, Demons walked the earth; made it their home -- their Hell. In time they (the demons) lost their purchase on this reality, and the way was made for the mortal animals. For Man. What remains of the Old Ones are vestiges: Certain magicks, certain creatures"

And Vampires.
