Lester Worth was a volcanologist residing in Sunnydale in 1999.[1]


Leading an expedition to Kauai, Worth found the remains of what he believed to be an unknown type of dinosaur. In fact, Worth had found the remains of Olvikan, the same demon that Mayor Richard Wilkins planned on becoming during his Ascension. Faith visited him in his apartment and killed the professor under order of the Mayor, who wanted to conceal any evidence that after the Ascension he would become vulnerable.[1]

Despite describing himself as a "lifelong bachelor," Worth had a daughter who visited his grave with flowers once a year. After the destruction of Sunnydale in 2003, she continued to bring them to the crater annually.[2]

Faith once asked Giles if it would be possible to resurrect Professor Worth or travel back in time to prevent him from dying, but Giles told her it was impossible.[2]
