Buffy was born January 19, 1981 to Joyce and Hank Summers in Los Angeles, California.
When Buffy was fifteen-year-old she began 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. 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.
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 Sunnydale.
Buffy enrolls in the local high school and meets her future best friends, Xander Harris and Willow Rosenberg, as well as her new Watcher, Rupert Giles, together forming the "core four" of the Scooby Gang. She also meets Cordelia Chase, a condescending, arrogant cheerleader, and Angel, a vampire with a soul. Buffy is quickly forced back into the role of Slayer as she and her new friends battle vampires, monsters, and demons. She grows closer to Giles, eventually coming to view him as a father figure. The first season centers on Buffy's battle with a thousand-year-old vampire leader known as The Master, and the Order of Aurelius. On learning that the infallible Pergamum Codex prophesies her death at the hands of the Master, Buffy contemplates leaving town, but accepts her fate after Willow discovers bodies of her friends slaughtered inside the school. She is overpowered and left to drown in a pool of water in the Master's dwellings, but Xander resuscitates her and she manages to defeat the Master.
Buffy finds forbidden love with Angel and clashes with Spike and Drusilla, the new vampires in town. Buffy and Angel make love, unknowingly lifting the Kalderash curse placed on him a century earlier. In a dark twist, he loses his soul and reverts to the evil Angelus. He becomes obsessed with destroying Buffy's life, his pathological abuse taking heavy toll on Buffy and her friends. As Angelus plans to destroy the world, Buffy is forced to reveal her identity as the Slayer to her mother, who demands that Buffy stay home and discuss matters with her, telling her that if she leaves now, not to come back. As Buffy fights with Angelus, trying to prevent him from opening a vortex to a hell dimension, Willow works a spell to re-ensoul Angel. The spell is successful, but it is too late, and Buffy reluctantly stabs Angel with a sword, sending him to a hell dimension. Traumatized by the ordeal of essentially killing her boyfriend and being alienated from her mother, Buffy leaves Sunnydale and escapes to Los Angeles.
Buffy must reconnect to her calling, her friends, and her family after her departure, as well as make difficult life decisions regarding her relationship with Angel. Returning to Sunnydale after several months, she reunites with her loved ones and tries to find closure to her relationship with Angel. However, Angel returns mysteriously and Buffy is still drawn to him. Meanwhile, she must also try to help rebellious new Slayer Faith, who becomes increasingly destructive and disloyal as she indulges her dark side. Alienated from "the Scoobies", Faith finds a friend in the affable yet sinister Mayor of Sunnydale, who is preparing to become a pure-blood demon on Sunnydale High's Graduation Day. When Buffy learns that Angel, who is on the verge of death after being poisoned by Faith, must drink the blood of a Slayer in order to survive, Buffy attempts to sacrifice Faith to save him. Their battle leaves Faith in a coma, and Buffy ultimately saves Angel with her own blood. Buffy leads her classmates in a climactic battle against the transformed Mayor and his minions, culminating in an explosion that destroys the Mayor as well as Sunnydale High. After the smoke clears, Angel leaves for Los Angeles so that Buffy can try to have a more normal life without him.
Buffy must balance her Slayer duties with her new life as a college student at UC Sunnydale. Her difficulty adjusting to college life is further complicated by mystical threats, the return of Spike, now unable to harm humans, and a disastrous one-night stand with Parker Abrams, a charming playboy. Buffy also experiences some disconnection from her friends, who all seem to be moving in different directions. She attracts the sincere attention of Riley Finn, who is, as she soon discovers. a member of the Initiative, a U.S. government task force created to research mystical and demonic creatures, led by Buffy's psychology professor, Maggie Walsh. Buffy briefly joins forces with Riley's team. However, Riley and Buffy become disillusioned with the Initiative after Professor Walsh betrays Buffy, and they discover that she is creating a race of super-warriors from the fruits of the Initiative's demon research, including the cyber-demonoid Adam. Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Giles literally unite to defeat Adam by invoking the power of the First Slayer.
Buffy faces her greatest dangers yet, while finally fully embracing her destiny. A younger sister, Dawn, mysteriously appears in Buffy's household, her existence having been seamlessly integrated with the memories of Buffy, her friends, and her mother. Buffy discovers that Dawn is not her sister and soon learns that a group of monks "created" a human body in order to hide "The Key," cosmic energy that can open interdimensional portals, from a mentally unstable and dangerous hell-god known as Glory. In the meantime, Spike realizes that he has fallen in love with Buffy, and he becomes a more regular and reliable presence in her Slayer life, assisting in the fight against demons. Buffy suffers much emotional turmoil, such as the deterioration of her relationship with Riley and her mother's unexpected death from a brain aneurysm. While on a vision quest, the spirit of the original Slayer tells her that "death is her gift", a message she has difficulty understanding. Buffy finally realizes what the meaning of the message means and sacrifices her own life in order to save Dawn's. She dives into an interdimensional portal, closing it and saving the world. She is buried on the outskirts of Sunnydale with the epitaph, "She saved the world. A lot."
Buffy must deal with depression and loss when she is resurrected by her friends who believe that she may have been in hell due to the mystical circumstances of her death. Buffy's transition back to her life is difficult; she experiences the pain of having been ripped from heaven, as well as the added responsibilities of raising Dawn and paying bills. Buffy is also forced to deal with the villainous Trio. Taking a mundane and degrading job slinging burgers at the Doublemeat Palace, she falls into a deep depression and begins a violent sexual relationship with Spike which leaves neither of them satisfied. Buffy later admits to Spike that she is just using him, and breaks things off because it is killing her. When Warren Mears kills Willow's girlfriend Tara Maclay, Willow becomes psychotic with dark magics, exacting revenge against Warren and planning to destroy the world. After Xander comes through for Willow in the end, Buffy promises to change her self-destructive behavior in order to be there for her sister.
Buffy develops a new perspective on her destiny, power when she is confronted with the threat of the First Evil. The Bringers, agents of the First, are tracking down and killing potential Slayers all over the world in an attempt to wipe out the Slayer line. Buffy's home quickly becomes filled with teenage Potentials, who come to Sunnydale for protection. Buffy is the natural leader for the girls, who initially look up to her with respect. She works to train the Potentials into an army to stand against the First; however, her methods, tactics, and decisions soon begin to alienate the terrified girls. The Potentials continue to lose faith in Buffy's leadership as the dangers around them increase, leading to a mutiny; the Scooby Gang all choose a reformed Faith as their new leader, and Dawn asks Buffy to leave the house. Only Spike remains loyal to Buffy, and Buffy spends two nights of emotional closeness with him before the final battle against the armies of the First. Buffy eventually wins back the Scoobies' trust and informs them of her plan to share her power with every Potential in the world. A huge battle is waged between an army of Slayers and the Turok-Han vampires; Spike sacrifices himself to close the Hellmouth, and the Scoobies escape as Sunnydale crumbles into a huge crater.
Buffy and Dawn with Willow, Xander and Giles have moved to Scotland to train activated Potentials. They use mystics and a wide technological armory to keep on top of demonic threats on a global level. For Buffy's protection, decoy Slayers are set up to distract enemies. At the moment, Buffy and the Slayers are positioned against an American Initiative-like cell run by General Voll as well as Amy and Warren Mears.
