Character Bio

Rupert Giles photo
Rupert Giles researched the supernatural creatures that Buffy must face, offered insights into their origins and advice on how to kill them. Giles's primary role in the series is Watcher to Buffy in her capacity as vampire Slayer; he is in the employ of the Watchers' Council, a British organization that attempts to oversee the actions of the Slayer. From youth, Giles was expected to follow the family tradition and become a Watcher, though as a teenager and young adult he rebelled, dropping out of Oxford University to experiment in dark magic and the rock music scene, until a bereavement brought him to his senses. In adulthood, his loyalty to Buffy and her group of friends costs him his job for a time. As the series progresses, Giles increasingly becomes a father figure to Buffy and her friends Willow and Xander. His encyclopedic knowledge, affinity for magic, moderate fighting skills and willingness to kill make him an asset to Buffy in her fight against the supernatural evils that plague Sunnydale, California.

He falls in love with Jenny Calendar and she is the only woman he has a relationship with. Her tragic death causes him to lose himself and seek out revenge on the monster that killed her Angel. He fails and Buffy saves him but the ordeal causes strain on their relationship for some time.
