Alexa Landry was an operative for the Watchers Council[1] who sought vengeance against Angel for what he had done to her ancestor Andrew Landry.[2]


Alexa's ancestor, Sir Andrew Landry, was a fearless vampire hunter who was stalked and killed by Angelus. Alexa manipulated the Watchers Council to achieve the position of field operative, in order to exact revenge against Angelus.[2] For a brief period, she became involved with Rupert Giles, years before he became Buffy Summers's Watcher. Giles broke it off when it became clear to him that she enjoyed the visceral aspect of her duties a bit more than was "healthy or proper."[3]

Following Buffy's official resignation from the Council, Alexa took advantage of the opportunity to suggest that the Council make her a new field operative, granting her access to their magical arsenal of weapons. She could eliminate demons in the Slayer's place, and her reputation prompted Quentin Travers, the head of the Council, to accept the suggestion despite the obvious risks.[1]

Alexa eventually hunted down demons in Los Angeles and informed survivors that Angel had sent her. This resulted in hordes of demons hunting down Angel, leaving carnage and bloodshed in their wake. With Angel fending off demons left and right, he was unable to protect his colleagues, Cordelia and Wesley, from a brutal visit from Alexa.[1] Her actions attracted the attention of the Scooby Gang, as demons fled Los Angeles and were drawn to the power of the Hellmouth. Even Travers became aware of her activities, the head Watcher forced to admit that Alexa was taking things too far despite his usual issues with Buffy and Angel's associates.[3]

Alexa's arsenal of magical artifacts allowed her to take on the combined might of Buffy, Angel, and their friends. She nearly came out victorious, paralyzing Angel with an Izmir dagger, and her arsenal allowing her to even hold her own against Buffy in a direct fight. Before Alexa could dust Angel, her weapons and supplies were stripped away by Buffy's witch friends Willow and Tara. Relentless to the end, Alexa continued to fight barehanded and was finally taken down by Buffy and a recovered Angel, and was left in the hands of the Council for punishment.[4]

After the fight was over, Angel expressed some regret at Alexa's fixation on the past. Giles agreed with the assessment by noting that, while Alexa was imprisoned by the past, Angel had allowed it to teach him.[4]
