Darla and Chris[src]

Chris Boal was a former Sunnydale High School student and a victim of Darla in 1997.


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 the school with her.[1]

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