The Key is an ancient mystical energy with the power to unlock the gates between all existing dimensions, though only at a certain time and place. Who, when or why it was created is unknown, though in the XII Century, the Order of Dagon was founded by Tarnis in order to protect it. Meanwhile, the Knights of Byzantium sought to destroy the Key so its destructive power would never be unleashed.

In 2000, fearing that Glorificus would use the Key, the surviving monks of the Order of Dagon transformed the Key into Dawn Summers with the hope that the Slayer would keep it safe. Dawn and everyone around her were given false memories so that they would believe she had always been present as Buffy's younger sister. The monks used Buffy as a template to create Dawn's physical body, meaning that they are biological sisters. People who are "beyond reality", such as seers and mentally ill people, are able to perceive Dawn as the Key.

In 2001, Glory's minion Doc succeeds in using Dawn as the Key, but the resulting portal is soon closed by Buffy's self-sacrifice. Afterwards, Dawn states that she is no longer a Key, or at least she no longer opens anything.
