- “I think I'd like Dawn to be my girlfriend.”
- ―Unidentified spirit[src]
In reference to the circumstances of his death, the boy described that he tried to run, and that he was screaming for help when "they pulled [him] down".
In 2002, the spirit was raised to seek vengeance along with manifestations of a girl and a man. They were controlled by a talisman and acted in the first day of school of the newly rebuilt Sunnydale High. This spirit haunted Dawn during class, appearing as a living human, then as a decomposing corpse who pierced her eye with a pencil, but in an illusion only she saw.
He and the two other spirits trapped Dawn with fellow students Kit and Carlos in the school's basement, where they fought Buffy as she tried to rescue the children. The spirits disappeared as soon Xander destroyed the talisman.
