I didn't stab no one with a trowel! They were pruning shears.

I'm crazy about a Cad. Just the feel of the leather makes me wanna...

Sheila's last moments of humanity.

Before she was sired, Sheila dated a boy nicknamed "Meatpie" and had a reputation for being both wild and dangerous. It was this lifestyle that ultimately cost her humanity. She blew off the assignment Principal Snyder forced upon Buffy Summers and her to prepare Sunnydale High for the upcoming Parent-Teacher Night.

After leaving The Fish Tank with two drunk guys, Dwayne and Dell, she was seduced and kidnapped by Spike. Sheila was taken to The Factory, bound and gagged and then given to Drusilla who needed to be fed as she was too weak to hunt for herself. Dru presents her in front of her dolls as an "audience". Shelia can only watch in panic as Dru changes to vamp face before turning to her and going for her neck. Draining her blood and killing her.

Sheila is then sired

Shelia as a vampire

and rises as a vampire, taking part in the raid on Sunnydale High led by Spike. She ran into Buffy as the Slayer was helping the students and faculty find refuge from the marauding vampires of the Order of Aurelius. Sheila tricked Buffy by pretending she was still human then attempted to kill her with an axe when Buffy's back was turned. However, Rupert Giles saw the attack coming from one of the classroom windows and managed to warn Buffy, who easily thwarted it. After Sheila witnessed another vampire being dusted by the Slayer, she wisely escaped.
