A Champion of the Powers That Be was an earthly agent of The Powers That Be, a warrior bound to serve the Powers' will and protect the innocent from the forces of evil. The vampire Angel was such a champion.
Initially, only Angel was the champion. However, as others started to help him more and more, they began to call themselves champions as well.
