"Into every generation, there is a chosen one. One girl in all the world. She alone will wield the strength and skill to stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness; To stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. She is the Slayer."

The First Slayer

- - - - - - - - - -

Three powerful shamans known as the Shadow Men chose Sineya, formally known as the First Slayer. Sineya was created to fight the forces of darkness. They chained her to the ground in a cave, and infused her with the heart and spirit of a powerful demon known as the Shadow Demon. Upon dying, she passed her powers on to a different girl and as a result, the Slayer line was born.

Xin Rong

Xin Rong was active as Slayer in China, before and during the Boxer Rebellion. On June 18th 1900, she had the unfortunate task of facing off with a vampire familiar to us all, Spike. Xing Rong died battling Spike, with her final words being ‘Tell my mother, I’m sorry”. Spike carelessly replying, “Sorry love, I don’t speak Chinese"

Nikki Wood

- - - - - - - - - -

Nikki Wood was a Slayer based in New York City during the 1970s. Nikki was known for being one of the only Slayers in history to mother a child. The child we come to know as Principal Robin Wood. Spike tracked Nikki down leading to her inevitable death after battling it out on a New York City subway train, taking her infamous long leather jacket as a trophy.

Buffy Summers

- - - - - - - - - -

Now, our favourite slayer, Buffy Anne Summers, was a Slayer that was activated in the late 20th century. Born in 1981, she was called upon to be the Slayer at the very young age of fifteen. Buffy was originally living in Los Angeles, but due to a gym full of ‘vampi-asbestos’, had to relocate to Sunnydale with her mother, Joyce Summers. There she met her new watcher, Rupert Giles, fellow scoobies, Willow Rosenberg and Xander Harris, as well as a few love interests…need I say more?

Kendra Young

- - - - - - - - - -

Kendra was our ‘by-the-book’ slayer that was very order orientated. Activated after Buffy died for “just a minute”, Kendra did what she had to do, when she had to do it. No questions asked. Slaying was not a job or chore to Kendra, it was simply who she was, partially due to being raised by a watcher and it being all she knew. Kendra was killed shortly after coming to Sunnydale, Spike’s partner in crime, Drusilla, being the one to end this slayers reign.

Faith Lehane

- - - - - - - - - -

Called upon after the death of Kendra, Faith was the badass slayer with the 'want-take-have' attitude. After a vampire going by the name of Kakistos murdered her watcher, Faith retreated to Sunnydale where she formed an alliance with Buffy and the rest of the gang. Faith’s personal circumstances had a colossal effect on her mind and judgement, leading her to join the dark side as Mayor Wilkins right hand. After wreaking havoc in Buffy and Angel’s life, attempting to destroy them both in various ways, Faith later felt remorse and guilt for her past doings, which succumbed to her eventually rejoining Buffy’s fight against evil.

The Potential Slayers

- - - - - - - - - -

Buffy’s death and resurrection disrupted the mystical force behind the Slayer line, which The First latched onto, attempting to kill all Potential Slayers with an army of ‘Bringers’. Giles and Buffy recruited and saved as many ‘Potentials’ as possible, some unfortunately, meeting an untimely death. Buffy asked Willow to tap into the Scythes Slayer essence and activate all potential slayers, all over the world, to once and for all battle The First and it’s army of Turok-han (übervamps). “Every girl who could have the power, will have the power. Can stand up, will stand up. Slayers, every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?”
