    Billy Blim 

Billy Blim (Justin Shilton)

"I don't hate women. I mean, sure, you're all whores who sell yourselves for money or prestige. But men are just as bad. Maybe worse. They're willing to throw away careers or families or even lives for what's under your skirt."

While appearing to be a normal young man, he was actually a half-demon with contagious, vicious misogyny, and had the power to turn any man he touched or who came in contact with his bodily fluids extremely savage and brutal toward anyone female. And he had no real reason to do this, other than his personal amusement.

  • Ax-Crazy
  • Child by Rape: According to Word of God, they personally believe that Billy was conceived when a demon woman - a good demon woman - was raped by an evil human male. This is just as screwed up as it sounds.
  • The Dreaded: By his own family.
  • Entry Pimp: The reason he's even in this list. He appears in only two episodes but is by far one of the most controversial and memorable villains in the series.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • For the Evulz: His reason for setting men upon women. He just loves watching it.
  • Hate Plague: His power to bring out the "primal misogyny" of any man who touched him or came into contact with his body fluids (sweat, blood, etc.). Angel is immune, because, as he put it, he gave up on hate a long time ago; even as Angelus, he killed and tortured people For the Evulz, but never felt any hate or anger towards those he did it to.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Up to Eleven.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: He purposely turns himself into the police to get out of his solitary confinement at his family estate. The arresting officers turn out to be a male-female duo, and he induces the man to start fighting with the woman and uses the ensuing chaos to slip away.
  • Psychotic Smirk
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: He's the nephew of Senator Blim, patriarch of one of the most powerful families in the United States. Like any family, the Blims prefer to keep their 'black sheep' out of the public eye.
  • The Sociopath: Among Angel's villains of the week, it's hard to top Billy Blim for clearly falling into this category. The fact that it was actually the normally very cold and amoral Lilah who took him out says volumes.
  • Straw Misogynist: Apparently all men are these. Billy doesn't turn men into brutal woman bashers, he just removes their inhibitions.
    • Although the characters that say so are villains. Fred disagrees when trying to console Wesley.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Lilah fights tooth and nail to free him, even blackmailing Angel into breaking him out. How does Billy repay her for it? He thanks Gavin, her rival, instead and induces him into beating the mortal shit out of Lilah while he walks away with a Psychotic Smirk.
  • Vigilante Execution: Lilah unloading her pistol at him on an airstrip.


Darla (Julie Benz)

"Do you think I ever hesitated when I wanted something? Life's too short. Believe me. I know. Four hundred years, and still too short."

Darla is Angel's sire, the one who turned him into a vampire. The two are together for 150 years, but after Angel is re-ensouled, she kicks him to the curb. The two meet again in Sunnydale, and Angel kills her in defense of Buffy. Years later, Wolfram & Hart bring her back to un-life, hoping she will tempt Angel over to the dark side. Eventually, due to Jasmine's meddling, she becomes pregnant with Connor, her son with Angel, and stakes herself because she can't give birth.
  • Action Mom
  • Anti-Villain
  • Back from the Dead: Interesting in that she was staked on Buffy, came back on Angel as a human, killed again and made a vampire by Drusilla, staked herself as a vampire, and then came back as a ghost. Once you've worked for Joss Whedon, you'll always have a job, even if it means dying four times.
  • The Baroness: Though she quickly rebels.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: After Darla is re-sired as a vampire, she and Drusilla are positioned as the Big Bads of Season Two...for about two episodes. Angel sets the pair of them on fire, then calls it a day.
    • It could be said that Angel's true opponent in Season Two is (unwittingly) himself.
  • Blondes Are Evil
  • The Chanteuse: Everybody gets a turn at the mic at Caritas. Julie Benz does her own singing for the song "Ill Wind" by Ella Fitzgerald.
  • Characterization Marches On: She's a lot more charismatic and dangerous when she reappears on Angel.
  • Death by Childbirth: The one that stuck.
  • Deliver Us from Evil
  • Depraved Bisexual
  • Dying Alone: By the time the Master turned up at her doorstep.
  • Evil Counterpart: Like Angel, she was resurrected, but she finds no value in the second chance given her and wanted to be a conscienceless, monstrous vamp again.
  • The Fog of Ages: Darla, being even older than Angelus, can no longer remember her human birth name.
  • Heel Face Door Slam: Just when it seems she's finally accepted her humanity and resolved to do some good with the little time she had left, Drusilla walks in and sires her.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • High-Class Call Girl: Implied to have once been a well-to-do prostitute in colonial Virginia. She even had property, which is almost unheard of.
  • I Can Change My Beloved: Four years later, she's still out to drag Angel back to his evil roots.
  • I Love You, Vampire Son
  • Ill Girl: She was dying of syphilitic heart disease. When resurrected as a human, she was still dying from it.
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: Her theme music.
  • Lady in Red
  • Law of Inverse Fertility
  • Light Is Not Good - as a human
  • Nay-Theist: "God never did anything for me."
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Darla "looked everywhere" for that gypsy girl as a birthday present for Angel. An attempt to reverse the curse went south when Spike prematurely ate the whole clan.
  • Pregnant Badass: Actually even tougher in this state; the fetus causes Darla to crave blood all the time, driving her into an unstoppable frenzy.
  • Too Kinky to Torture
    You're hurting me. I like it!
  • Tsundere
    "Just because we had a thing for 200 years, don't think you know me!"
  • The Vamp: Juggling Lindsey and Angel as lovers. She seemed to show interest in Lilah, too.
  • Victorian Novel Disease: An advanced case of syphilis closed the book on Darla's human life. Upon being revived by Wolfram & Hart, she is shocked to learn that her resurrection as a human came part and parcel with the disease. As she put it, she was dying, and not "someday, but now. Right now."

    Drusilla Keeble 

    Daniel Holtz 

Daniel Holtz (Keith Szarabajka)

"I don't 'want' anything. My family's gone. My only desire here is to discover if a thing such as yourself can be made to pay for its sins."

Holtz is an vampire hunter from 18th-century Britain whose family was slaughtered by Angelus and Darla. In the past, Holtz briefly caught up with them, but the couple escaped after Holtz took his sweet time in killing Angelus (he views killing the vampire more of a blessing than punishment). A demon named Sahjhan travels back in time and offers to bring Holtz with him to the present day, on the condition that he take Angel out of the equation. Sadly for Sahjhan, he should've studied up more on his new partner, because killing Angel is the farthest thing from Holtz's mind...
  • Abstract Apotheosis: An embodiment of all of Angelus' past victims.
  • Accuser of the Brethren: His evil plan was to basically to prevent Angel from redeeming himself.
  • Affably Evil: Even if he's manipulating you, he'll still be polite, friendly, and may even offer tea. He has genuine respect for the team and their reasons for helping Angel.
  • And Your Little Dog Too: He starts out by getting revenge on Angelus - by harassing the souled Angel. Initially, Angel responds with sympathy and guilt with what his soulless self did to the troubled man - and tries to simply reason with him. When Holtz starts to threaten Angel's (innocent) friends, that's when Angel realizes that more drastic action needs to be taken.
  • Anti-Villain
  • Arch-Enemy: Arguably fits this trope better then any other villain that Angel has faced. They both have long turbulent pasts with each other and have both preformed deeds that make it personal, from Angelus' killing of Holtz wife and child to Holtz' kidnapping of Conner and eventually causing a giant rift to form between them. They also become foils for each other as Angel is a vampire that attempts to atone for his past deeds for the greater good while Holtz is a human driven to revenge instead of justice.
  • Badass: Angelus was the bane of Europe for many, many years. And this man was his boogey man.
    • Badass and Baby/Badass and Child Duo: He had to be in that hell dimension, until Connor became old enough to be Bad Ass himself.
    • Badass Longcoat
    • Badass Normal: Competes only with Gunn and maybe Wesley for the title of most Badass Normal in the Buffyverse. According to Wolfram & Hart's records, he's the most successful non-mystical vampire hunter in history, with over three hundred dustings to his credit.
    • Fridge Brilliance pushes it Up to Eleven. Remember those MP5A3-toting Mooks he wipes out after showing up in the present? He did that without knowledge of what guns could do, or even what they really were.
      • Well, he's from the 18th century, not antiquity. Even if he doesn't know what a semi-automatic can do, it's a fair bet he knew to stay away from them.
  • Beard of Evil: Lampshaded by Justine who comments that his goatee rounds out "the creepy stalker look". Holtz discovers razors soon afterward.
  • Best Served Cold: "I swore that I would show no mercy. And I won't." His vengeance took centuries, but it was only more potent from the wait.
  • Big Bad: Of season 3.
  • The Captain: Referred to as "Captain" by his old hunting party.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Church Militant: He's cozy with some Inquisitores; so much so that he hires a Cardinal to flay Angelus for a while. Also hinted to be a deeply religious man, despite sounding like Satan.
  • Cool Shades
  • Combat Pragmatist: So Caritas is a sanctuary that prevents violence of any kind within its walls, right? How do you get past that? Here's how: you stand outside, and throw things in - things like grenades, for example. Or flaming barrels of fuel.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Angelus and Darla lured him away from his home and brutally murdered his family to get back at him for hunting them. They...come to regret this.
  • Cruel Mercy: Somewhat of a speciality.
  • Deal with the Devil: And the man manages to screw over the devil. In this case, Sahjhan.
    • Holtz plays this role himself, and Wesley knew full well what he was walking into. Wes can only hope that he'll see the inevitable back-stab coming. And he did... kind of. Holtz misdirected Wesley while Justine, pretending to be wounded, slit Wesley's neck.
  • Evil Counterpart: The Justine/Holtz relationship is darkly reminiscent of a Slayer's tutelage under her Watcher.
  • Fake Brit: Keith Szarabajka is an American actor.
  • Fallen Hero: He started out as a force for good, but Angelus and Darla turned him into a revenge-driven monster.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Subverted. It doesn't even slow him down much.
    • And oddly inverted — his arrival screws pretty much everyone, due to his uncompromising nature.
      • Nonetheless, there are some examples. He dismisses computers as boxes and Styrofoam cups as cotton, and explicitly tells Justine not to bother with any pop culture references around him because he won't get it.
  • Foil: Could arguably be considered one to Robin Wood, one of the supporting characters of Buffy season 7. Both lost their families to vampires (ironically, the vampires in question are Angel and Spike, respectively) and sought vengeance. Like Holtz, Wood found positively no solace in Spike's ensoulment or remorse and only cared about his revenge. However, Robin eventually managed to let go of his hate and become a trusted friend and ally to the Scooby Gang, whereas Holtz was single-mindedly consumed by his desire for vengeance to his last breath.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Bear in mind that, from his own time, the only thing he did that could reasonably be called evil was his suicide.
  • He Who Fights Monsters
  • Heel Realization: His last words reveal that he knows he's headed to Hell for his actions. And he doesn't give a damn.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather
  • Implacable Man: Hell didn't stop this guy. Time, demons, modern-day weapons, deliberately withheld intelligence, unreliable underlings...nothing stops him, only misdirects him, and he'll always adjust.
  • Impromptu Tracheotomy: His last request to Justine, to make Angel look like the culprit.
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: Holtz comforts his vampirized daughter by singing 'Ar Hyd y Nos' (All Through the Night), a Welsh song that later became widely used as a lullaby in England. Holtz can be heard ominously singing it to himself every now and then; it's probably most noticeably played up when he comforts his one surviving daughter by singing to her - then realises she's vampiric and casts her into sunlight to burn.
  • It's Personal: Personified.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope
  • Knight of Cerebus: Holtz's reemergence is a wake-up call that Angel's quest for redemption may be doomed to fail.
  • Knight Templar: He definitely has shades of this but is not a pure example. He has high moral standards, and he will avoid harming others if he can. While he does not view those who associate with Angel as evil, he does think them misguided. He even expresses dislike for Justine's black and white viewpoint.
  • Last Name Basis: Only Justine gets away with calling him 'Daniel'.
  • Literal Genie: Just how Badass is Holtz do you ask? This is the man who makes a deal with a demon, and it's the demon who gets screwed over!
  • Manipulative Bastard: One of the best.
    • Jasmine spent millennia with god-like power manipulating events to come to Earth, lasted less than a week, and died at the hands of her most loyal servant. Wolfram & Hart spent five seasons with nigh-limitless resources trying to corrupt Angel and all they accomplished in the end was letting him know who to kill. Meanwhile, Holtz had no powers whatsoever, was out of his own time, and had no allies but those he created for himself. And, in half a season, he managed to convince Wesley to kidnap Angel's son, then escaped into a hell dimension with him, raising him to be Angel's worst enemy. Then his assisted suicide actually made things worse between them.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Played with. Angel and Darla were always afraid of him but still didn't think of him as that much of a threat. When Holtz reappears, Angel and Darla realize just how dangerous he really is.
  • One-Man Army: Holtz single-handedly took down an entire platoon of Wolfram & Hart's heavily-armed mercenaries. For a human, that's already a Slayer-worthy feat. He did it after waking up from a two-century sleep.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: In conjunction with Connor, Holtz ages into a ghastly, traumatized old man — a shell of his former self.
    • Though his mind is still as sharp as ever, as Angel discovers horribly.
  • The Power of Hate: Attributes it to his own longevity inside a Hell dimension.
  • Prophetic Name: Holtz means "wood" in German.
  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: Completely subverted. Holtz is a reminder that just because he's the title character, Angel does not and should not get to wave off what he did in his past.
  • Revenge Before Reason: To his last breath, he only cares about getting revenge on Angel for what he did to him, and doesn't care what he has to do to get it done.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Family killed? No problem; Holtz redresses the balance by manipulating Wesley into helping steal Connor, thereby raising Angel's son as his own.
    • Holtz's revenge comes to fruition, but not in the way he expected: not only did Angel lose his son, but he also had to kill Connor in a way that echoes Holtz killing his vamped daughter.
  • Spock Speak
  • Staking the Loved One: His dealing with his daughter.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Angel has the utmost respect for Holtz and feels genuine remorse for what he did, never condemning Holtz for what he does. Holtz, however, views Angel as a beast that needs to be put down.
  • Thanatos Gambit: His final act is to commit suicide in a manner that simulates a vampire attack, thus leading Connor to believe that Angel killed him.
  • Tranquil Fury: You could count the times Holtz raises his voice (or emotes at all) on one hand, but after the centuries pass and his trip to Hell, his rage is the only thing he has left.
  • Vampire Hunter
  • Van Helsing Hate Crimes: More justified than most, but still there.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted. It's made abundantly clear that Holtz only cares about revenge.
  • We Have Reserves: Poisoning his demon bodyguards; completely and utterly deceiving his human soldiers, treating them as mere tools to get to Connor; even Connor himself is not immune. (Holtz did move to snap his little baby neck until Angel called him off.)
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Given what he went through, it's damn near impossible not to feel sorry for him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He killed his last child. And if pushed, you know he'll do it again.


Sahjhan (Jack Conley)

"I'll take you to them. Two centuries into the future."
"Through black magic and sorcery?"
"No, on a mule cart. Of course through black magic and sorcery. I'm a demon!"
Sahjhan and Holtz

An intangible demon who seems to harbor a mysterious grudge against Angel. He is a surviving member of the Granok, a race of warriors who reveled in carnage and death and were generally bad dudes. However, they were deemed too chaotic by Mesektet and Wolfram & Hart, who removed their ability to interact with the physical world.

    Justine Cooper 

Justine Cooper (Laurel Holloman)

    The Beast 

The Beast (Vladimir Kulich)

"We could rule this world. Why do you oppose me?"
"Rain of fire. Blocking out the sun. And you just kinda piss me off."
—The Beast and Angel

A large, stony fellow who is reportedly the herald of the apocalypse. Surprisingly crafty — a trait which is met with much suspicion from his old pal Angelus, who never knew The Beast to be so well-organized. In due course, he's revealed to be a mere foot soldier of Jasmine.
  • Achilles' Heel: To the point that Angelus is disgusted it worked.
  • The Brute
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In their first fight, he easily puts the smackdown on the entire Angel Investigations team, even stabbing Angel in the neck with his own stake.
    • The Beast never actually loses a fight. Even a powerful Slayer like Faith was nearly beaten to death with absolutely no injury sustained on his part.
  • Dimension Traveller: In one battle with Angel Investigations, they banish him to another dimension... only for him to reappear right behind them unscathed as soon as the portal closes.
  • Disc One Final Boss: In season four.
  • Dumb Muscle: The Beast even having a plan is a sign that he's working for someone else.
  • The Dragon: For Jasmine.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Though this inexplicably changes.
  • Hellish Pupils
  • Hero Killer: Toodles.
  • Hoist By Their Own Petard: A knife carved from his "unworthy flesh" as a gift to his Master. Should've gotten a toaster.
  • In a Single Bound
  • I Want Them Alive: One clue that Connor is somehow linked with these events is that on several occasions The Beast beats him, but declines to finish him off. He does the same to Angel in their first fight.
  • Immune to Bullets: Even a point-blank shotgun blast to the face does nothing but knock him off balance for a few seconds. Oh dear.
  • The Juggernaut
  • Mighty Glacier: Despite being crazy strong and Nigh Invulnerable, he's so slow that, when he fights Angelus, the latter easily dodges his attacks and even finds time to crack jokes and taunt him while doing so.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability
  • Spell My Name with a "The"
  • Technicolor Death: The Beast in season 4 dies this way, with sunlight exploding out of him after Angelus punctures his rocky hide.
  • To Create A Playground For Evil: Shrouding Los Angeles in permanent night, allowing vampires a twenty-four hour buffet.
  • Unperson: Before his arrival, any record or memory of The Beast is erased from history. Only Angelus is unaffected, as he was technically replaced by Angel at the time the spell was cast.
  • We Can Rule Together: He tried to pull this with Angelus in 1789. It did not work.


Skip (David Denman)

"How come he's not screamin' in pain?"
"Oh, he is. My will prevents him from bein' heard. I mean, there's only so many, "Oh, my God! The pain! Please make it stops..." you can listen to, before it starts to bug the crap out of you."
— Angel and Skip


Jasmine (Gina Torres)

"Every moment that passes, I grow closer to my followers. I feel what they feel. I see what they see. We're fusing together, like the cells of a single body. They're my eyes, my skin, my limbs — and if need be, my fists."

A "Power-That-Was" who fell from grace after meddling in the affairs of lower beings, attempting to raise herself to godhood. Several millennia later, she's still at it, using Cordelia as a vessel to 'birth' herself into our world. Jasmine (as she is currently known) possesses a mystical aura which inspires love and servitude within anyone who lays eyes on her.
  • Above Good and Evil
    "There are no absolutes, no right and wrong. Haven't you learned anything working for The Powers? There are only choices. I offered paradise; you chose this!"
  • Achilles' Heel: Her blood — or more specifically, the blood of anyone in her 'family' line, Connor and Cordelia included. This explains why Connor is aware of Jasmine's maggot face from the start.
  • Assimilation Plot
  • Badass Boast: "I was forged from the inferno of creation, vampire!"
  • Big Bad: Of season 4.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Bringing peace to the world. With mind control.
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: Is all set to double-team against Angel with Connor — who immediately turns on her, killing her instantly. Especially cold given that Jasmine was elated to see him again, having had everyone else turn against her.
  • The Chessmaster: Orchestrated every major event in the heroes' lives — Lorne and Fred swapping places in Pylea, Cordelia getting the visions, Wesley sleeping with the enemy, Connor's conception — meaning that she's the reason this show exists.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Angel poses exactly no threat to her in a physical confrontation, even after having her powers drained. It required Connor, the only person around who could ignore her invulnerability that wasn't in a coma, to stop her.
  • Dark Messiah: She attempts to bring peace to the world... by employing global-scale mind control to disguise her appearance and make demands regarding worshipping her, eating scores of people along the way.
  • Death by Irony: Connor, her meat puppet and truest minion.
  • Destructive Saviour: The atrocities committed by her cronies are shrugged off as "birth pains."
  • Diabolus Ex Nihilo: All we know of her backstory is the happy fable she repeats to everybody.
  • Dimension Lord: She originally hails from the Bug World. They were a test drive, apparently.
  • Egopolis: Los Angeles being declared "the First Citadel of Jasmine." Also, a palace would be nice.
  • Eldritch Abomination/Humanoid Abomination: Take your pick. Jasmine regularly shapeshift into a luminescent, tentacled form in order to feed. In the moments following her 'birth', this is the first shape we see. However, Jasmine prefers to remain in humanoid form for most of the time, even while engaging in hand-to-hand combat. (Maybe her gooey form lacks mobility.)
  • Enemy to All Living Things: Do not let Jasmine touch you, under any circumstances.
  • Evil Laugh
  • The Evils of Free Will: She firmly believes this.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Before crossing over to Earth, Jasmine first attempted to conquer a race of insectoids. Her chosen followers were evolved into scaly humanoids with telepathic powers.
    Lorne: Uh huh, and how'd that work out for them?
    Jasmine: (beat) It was a trial run.
  • Facial Horror: Her real face is hollowed out and infested with maggots.
    • Once everyone is freed from her thrall, Jasmine's face erupts with boils and lesions.
  • Fallen Angel: According to Jasmine, she used to belong to the PTB, but was ejected for interfering in mortal affairs. Methinks they had good cause for kicking her out.
  • Flower in Her Hair: Three guesses as to which. (Clue: she named herself after it.)
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Her body tends to reflect the species she wishes to control. This is evidenced by her statue on Bug World, which depicts her with pincers and crab legs. Apparently her true form - which she employs to feed - is a luminescent Starfish Alien.
  • Glamour: To hide the Facial Horror.
  • Healing Factor
  • Hidden Villain: Turns out to have pulling strings as far back as Season One. Or so she claims. She even claims that she was responsible for Lorne arriving on Earth in 1996.
  • Hive Queen
  • Hoist By Their Own Petard: Angel removes Jasmine's cloaking spell during her televised broadcast to the world. How embarrassing.
  • Horror Hunger: Needs to eat people to replenish her energy. At first, it's just small potatoes; within a few episodes, however, she's eating dozens of people at a time.
  • Hot God: She's played by Gina Torres. Also, she is often lit in such a way as to make her glow or glimmer softly and wears flowing, flattering clothes.
  • I Am Legion: The "Jasmaniacs".
  • I Have Many Names
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Implied to be her true motivation for enslaving the human dimension. When Angel breaks her hold over mankind, she's visibly saddened when her once-devoted worshipers flee her in revulsion and panic.
  • I Know Your True Name: The only method of breaking Jasmine's mind control. In order to find it, Angel journeys (literally) to Hell and back.
  • Just Trying to Help: She claims.
  • Kill the God: But only her parents can harm her physically.
  • Knight Templar
  • Last Villain Stand: After her brainwashing powers are lost, Jasmine declares that if she can't rule the world she's going to destroy it. She shrugs off everything Angel tries to throw at her, but she doesn't get to enjoy her spree for long because Connor, whose immunity to her powers apparently stretch to ignoring her invulnerability, swoops in and kills her.
  • Lie to the Beholder
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Love Hungry: Her Glamour forces all who see her to love and serve her unconditionally.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: Reverts to a giant, tentacled blob in order to eat.
  • The Man Behind the Man
  • Manipulative Bastard: She has been manipulating the events of A.I.'s lives for years, staring with Lorne's arrival on Earth, in order to be brought forth.
  • Mass Hypnosis: One of her abilities.
  • A Million Is a Statistic:
    "Yes. I murdered thousands... to save billions!"
  • Motive Rant: And a pretty persuasive one, all told.
  • Naked on Arrival
  • Omnicidal Maniac: With her powers stripped and followers gone, she decides to take up Angel's offer of helping him make the world a better place... One body at a time.
  • Physical God
  • Principles Zealot
  • Redemption Rejection: Even after all she's done, Angel still tries for a reconciliation. Jasmine clobbers him in response.
    • But it still says a lot about Angel's consistency; he will even offer a fallen God a chance at redemption!
  • Sickly Green Glow: Her aura while devouring people en masse.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": On Bugworld, she is candidly known as The Devourer.
  • Starbucks Skin Scale: Angel once described Jasmine as "mocha".
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: After Angel breaks her hold over L.A., Jasmine vows to use what power she has left to destroy humanity rather than give free will a chance.
  • Take-That Kiss: Plants one on Angel during their final confrontation. Considering all those oozing pustules... ew.
    Connor: Always the same, Dad. I get a girl, you gotta make a play for her.
  • Terms of Endangerment: Jasmine tends to call her minions things like 'sweet boy' and 'my love,' something she may have inherited from her grandmother Darla (who called both Angel and Conner 'my darling boy').
  • Utopia Justifies the Means
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Even after they beat her, Angel and his pals are uncertain if they did a good thing or a bad thing by doing so, and Wolfram & Hart praising them for ending world peace certainly doesn't help.
  • Words Can Break My Bones: Her Achilles' Heel. Any utterance of her true name breaks her hold over her minions.
  • Your Head Asplode: Connor puts a fist through her head. Splat.

    Matthias Pavayne 

Matthias Pavayne (Simon Templeman)

A multiple murderer that managed, through a Deal with the Devil, to delay his own journey to hell through torturing the damned. For the early parts of Season 5, he's responsible for Spike's being dragged to hell.
