Willow Danielle Rosenberg was a Sunnydale High School student and a member of the Scooby Gang

Biography

Willow grew up in Sunnydale, and had Alexander Harris as her best friend since childhood. By 2019, she had been open about her identity as a lesbian,[1] and was in a relationship with Rose, another student at Sunnydale High.[2]

One night, after eating at Tunaverse with Xander, they were attacked by a vampire, but fellow classmate Buffy Summers dusted him. Grateful for having saving their lives, Willow invited her to hang out, when they talked about the reality of the supernatural and Buffy's identity as the Slayer.[1]

Buffy's Watcher and school librarian Rupert Giles soon requested Willow's help to bring him a magic charm to return the Camazotz in his dormant state. As she and Xander arrived the scene, the two were able to assist Buffy in her fight against the vampires Drusilla and Spike.[3] Since then, the four of them formed a vampire hunting team dubbed the Scooby Gang, training and patrolling together, but maintaining this a secret even from Rose.[4]

In the morning after going to the movies with a group of friends, Willow was called again by Giles, who requested her to go with Buffy to his home. There, he game them the news that Xander had been lured into a trap by Drusilla and Spike, and was turning into a vampire. The only way to suppress his demon would be with the artifact Anima Colligationem,[5] that Buffy and Willow went after in the same day.[6]

A translated map brought them deep into a forest to the Siphon, who demanded a sacrifice from Willow in exchange for the soul stone: half of her own. She promptly accepted, while Buffy uselessly offered hers instead, and soon she cough the soul tie.[6] This allowed Xander to become "half human" and resume his daily routine, but the event was not without consequences, as Willow had difficulty dealing with the trauma of her own. While a lock of her red hair grew dark, Willow had nightmares of her own dark side talking to her about being the part she sacrificed, ending with herself killing it. She kept this a secret from Giles, but had the support from Xander, who was nonetheless grateful for his second chance.[7]

While Drusilla activated Sunnydale's Hellmouth, Willow had skipped the Halloween school dance to stay home, where she floated above a pentagram and candles with objects flying around her.[8] She had been studying witchcraft in secret, and the apocalyptic event made Willow grow indifferent to the mundane world. Her behavior changed as well, as she rebelled against the pressure to continue being her past self, acting distant and even rude to those around her. Rose confronted her about her actions, and mentioned having heart about her secret involvement with weird things, in reference to the fight with the Camazotz. When Rose asked what she did feel then, Willow decided she needed some space.[9]

Personality and traits

Willow was a gentle, sweet, intelligent, and caring person. Albeit with some insecurities, she displayed a notable confidence. She was openly lesbian, and showed an interest in witchcraft as well.[1]
