She is the sunrise.

Spike was a vampire in the 2030s in an universe where the sun had been nearly blotted out.[1]


Spike had a sexual relationship with Buffy Summers in the 2000s, but she "ditched" him when Angel came back to her.[2] Buffy and Angel married, but he eventually walked out from her.[1]

At some point, the effect of the sun on Earth was dampened, and vampires became integrated into human society.[3] When Spike went to London, a group of friends offered him a drink and led him into catacombs with caged humans to feed; Spike understood that vampires never wanted equality, only gaining the humans' trust to kill them.[2]

To stop the vampires' domination, Spike formed a coven with four witches: Charlie, Wren, Mabel, and Elowen. They planned to restore the sun's powers by having witches worldwide perform the spell remotely, not drawing attention with a gathering like in previous attempts[2] that led to Willow's death and Tara's disappearance.[2][4]

Spike had the coven perform a spell to locate Buffy in London, and he made himself known to the Slayer when a group of sired Watchers were attacking her and Thessaly, Willow and Tara's teenage daughter. The witches dusted the vampires[1] and Buffy greeted Spike with a punch, glad to finally fight a vampire properly. Thessaly went to Spike's underground hideout with the group of witches, and Spike led Buffy after the girl. Buffy initially did not trust him; she hadn't seen Spike in years, but he told her he was the only person on her side, "as usual."[2]
