Maybe it's some 'thing.'

Chris Boal was a former Sunnydale High School student and a victim of Darla in 1996.[1]


Chris tried to seduce Darla and took her to Sunnydale High at night, not knowing her true nature. He was surprised and drained by the innocuous-looking vampire when he broke into his former high school with her.[1]

Chris' body was dumped inside Aura's locker in the girls' changing room. Giles thought Chris would come back to life as a vampire, but Buffy was sure he hadn't been sired.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

  • He was portrayed by Carmine Giovinazzo in "Welcome to the Hellmouth" and an uncredited actor in the unaired pilot.
  • Despite his name is never mentioned on screen, Chris Boal is identified as such in a deleted scene from the first draft of the unaired pilot's screenplay.
  • Chris is the first character to appear on screen in the TV series, if the shot of Buffy Summers in the prologue sequence is excluded, as well as its first character to die.
