Glory came to [[Sunnydale]] looking for "the Key", a mystical item that would break down the walls between all dimensions, allowing Glorificus to return to reign in her own dimension.

Glorificus, commonly known as Glory and also referred as The Beast, The Abomination and That Which Cannot Be Named is a goddess from a hell dimension. She was portrayed by Clare Kramer.

Biography

Glory was a goddess from a hell dimension, over which she ruled alongside two other deities. However, her fellow gods feared she might seize power for herself alone so they attacked her and banished her to earth, trapping her in the body of a mortal boy, Ben Wilkinson.

Glory came to Sunnydale looking for The Key, a mystical item that would break down the walls between all dimensions, allowing Glorificus to return to reign in her own dimension. Use of The Key would also cause the merging of all other dimensions. It was eventually revealed that Buffy's sister Dawn was The Key, in human form. Glory soon discovered this fact and kidnapped Dawn.

During the ritual to merge the dimensions, Glory was attacked by Buffy Summers. Buffy had an extensive arsenal at her disposal for this battle, Willow's magic spell that draws on the goddess' stamina, the Dagon Sphere which lowers Glory's strength, the Buffybot, Olaf's Hammer and eventually a wrecking ball, commandeered by Xander.

Glory was left significantly weakened, losing her hold on this reality, and returning to the form and mind of Ben. Giles knew that Glory will eventually return and get her revenge unless Ben is killed, so Giles smothered him. As Ben died, so ded Glory.

Behind the scenes

  • Glory was originally meant to return for the final episode of the series as one of the forms assumed by First Evil. However, due to conflicting schedules, Clare Kramer could not appear.
  • The picture in the living room of Glory's mansion is a copy of Tamara de Lempicka's Irene and her sisters a.k.a. Four nudes. The Polish art déco/futurist artist is renowned for being strongly feminist and openly bisexual/lesbian.
