You were right all along about everything. Well, no, you weren't right about your mother coming back as a Pekingese but... uh... Try to rest, old man.
Rupert Giles[src]

Dr. Ferris Carlyle was an old acquaintance of Rupert Giles from Oxford University with advanced degrees on entomology and mythology.[1]

Biography[]

Carlyle spent years transcribing a lost pre-Germanic language and discovered the existence of a creature he called the She-Mantis. He kept the information to himself until several teenage boys were murdered in the Cotswolds. Carlyle went hunting for the creature, but he was defeated and driven insane in the process. Because of his mental state, and the fact that he claimed that his mother had reincarnated as a Pekingese dog, nobody believed him.[1]

In 1996, the She-Mantis appeared in Sunnydale, and Giles called Carlyle to obtain information. Using his guidance, the Slayer Buffy Summers finally killed the She-Mantis.[1]
