A high-ranking executive at Wolfram & Hart, later promoted to head of its Special Projects Division, i.e. the "Screwing With Angel's Head and other apocalyptic plans" division. Holland's not the last to hold this office, given its [[DangerousWorkplace high turnover]] rate. Basically a re-tooled Mayor Wilkins from ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]''.

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: On Gunn.

%%* {{Jerkass}}

to:

%%* {{Jerkass}}* {{Jerkass}}: As Lilah says, he has no people skills. As such, neither Lilah nor Lindsey have any problem when Faith quickly gets sick of Lee and beats him senseless.

%%* PsychoForHire

* EvilSoundsDeep: Pavayne has a deep, soft voice, which makes him even more intimidating.



* KnightOfCerebus: He stands out as an extremely memorable one-episode villain due to how blatantly terrifying he is. His 'parlor tricks' are utterly horrifying and he's spent thousands of years sending people to hell. Any comedic elements are completely sucked out of the room when he appears.

to:

* HumanSacrifice: Wolfram & Hart sacrificed Pavayne to deconsecrate the holy ground they intended to build their L.A. office on. They needed a particularly evil soul, and Pavayne fit the bill.
