She's only programmed to be in love.
―Warren Mears[src]

April was a robot created by Warren Mears to be his girlfriend. She was the inspiration for the Buffybot.


I'm looking for Warren. Do you know where Warren is? And if you do, could you tell me?

April was created by Warren Mears to love and obey him, but Warren ultimately realized that he didn't love her back and left her, hoping her batteries would run out. Afterwards, he met Katrina Silber, with whom he started a relationship

However, April traveled to Sunnydale to find her creator. Her devotion to Warren knew no limits, and she physically attacked anyone who came between them, including Buffy Summers, Spike and Katrina. Ultimately, Warren, in an attempt to escape her, told her that he loved Buffy, resulting in a massive brawl between them. Buffy disabled April, and the two engaged in civil conversation with each other. Buffy comforted April over Warren's departure, but she was accepting of it. In her last words, April told Buffy, "It's always darkest just before the dawn," but she shut down before she could finish her sentence.
