'''The Gentlemen''' were a group of [[demon]]s said to originate from fairytales. They roamed from town to town, seeking out seven human hearts they required to stay alive. They were served by a group of demonic [[footmen]] dressed in straight jackets who did all the fighting and muscle-work for them.

'''The Gentlemen''' were a group of [[Demon|demons]] that roam from town to town, seeking out seven human hearts they require to stay alive. They are served by a group of demonic [[Gentlemen's footmen|footmen]] in straight jackets.
   
 
==Description==
 
==Description==
The Gentlemen were bald, pale humanoids that never spoke but were always grinning maliciously through metallic teeth. They wore black suits and carried satchels with scalpels in them with which to remove the hearts they required. They did not walk, but instead hovered about a foot above the ground, standing perfectly straight.

The Gentlemen are bald, pale humanoids that never speak but are always grinning maliciously through sharp fangs. They wear black suits and carry satchels filled with scalpels around with them. They do not walk, but instead float about a foot above the ground, standing perfectly straight.
True to their name, they tended to gesture to each other politely, kindly passing the scalpel during a heart extraction and applauding another Gentleman each time they added a heart to the collection.
 
   
 
==History==
 
==History==
In a folk tale Giles had a copy of, the Gentlemen stole the voices of a kingdom before the princess screamed, causing them to die. In 1999, a group of Gentlemen came to [[Sunnydale]] where they managed to collect five hearts before they were defeated by the [[Slayer]], [[Buffy Summers]], with help from [[The Initiative (organization)|Initiative]] soldier [[Riley Finn]].

Circa 2004, a group of Japanese Gentlemen battled [[Tok Shinobu]] and her army of puppet ninjas.
   
 
==Powers==
 
==Powers==
The Gentlemen were able to hover above the ground instead of walking. They were also invulnerable to harm, such as swords and other weapons along with electricity. However they had one fatal weakness: the sound of a human voice, specifically a human scream. As a way of avoiding this danger, they stole the voices of every inhabitant upon arrival in a new town through a [[The Gentlemen's box|magical box]]. This forced silence had the added benefit that none of their victims were able to scream for help as the Gentlemen cut their hearts from their still-living bodies.

The sound of a human voice is fatal to the Gentlemen, so upon arrival in a new town they steal the voice of every inhabitant through a magical box. This forced silence has the added benefit of none of their victims being able to scream for help as the Gentlemen tear their hearts from their still-living bodies.
