All those alchemists on the Board of Directors and still they make us fly coach. Miserly bastards.

Smith was a member of the Watchers Council Special Operations Team.


Smith was an operative working for the Watchers Council and, alongside agents Collins and Weatherby, a member of its Special Operations Team, an elite group employed by the Council to perform illegal acts not suited for Watchers or Slayers such as smuggling, interrogation and even assassinations.

After the Operations Team was called to Sunnydale when Faith Lehane awakened from her coma, they successfully captured Faith, but after she had switched bodies with Buffy Summers. Ignoring Buffy's pleas to free her, Collins ordered Smith to kill Faith. Buffy, in Faith's body, eventually managed to escape from the Operations Team.

Weatherby, Smith and Collins again attempted to capture Faith after she moved to Los Angeles. They once again failed, despite being armed with machine guns and a helicopter, thanks to the combined efforts of Angel, Buffy and Wesley Wyndam-Pryce. Smith was thrown out of the helicopter by Angel.


Of the Special Operations Team, Smith seemed the least violent and the more forgiving of the three, as he was hesitant when ordered to kill a captured Faith. Despite this, he was the gunner in the helicopter, and seemed fine with shooting at both Faith and Buffy.
