He was once known as
"William the Bloody" but his habit of torturing his victims with
railroad spikes earned him the name Spike. Little is know about Spike's
origin other than the fact that he is from England, presumably from the
London area. However, there are at least two theories as to how he became a
vampire. Some believe that it was Drusilla who sired him. But the other
theory, saying that Angel is Spike's sire, seems to be much more plausible.
First and foremost, Spike himself called Angel his "sire" several
times. And then, of course, there's the age issue. Giles mentioned that
Spike was roughly 200, which makes him about 60 years older than Drusilla,
so she can't possibly have sired him. But then, comes up the episode where
Spike said he was 126 years old…so, well go figure.
Anyway, Spike seems
to have spent quite some time with Angel before Angel regained his soul and
disappeared. From then on, Spike and Dru have been a couple. They seem to
have travelled all over the continent but the only thing we know for sure
is that one day they ended up in Prague. There, Dru was attacked by an
angry mob and seriously injured. In order to cure her, Spike took her to
Shortly after their
arrival, Spike got rid of the former vampire leader, the Anointed One, and
took his place. Eventually he found the key to cure Dru: Their sire Angel,
who now was their enemy and fought on the Slayer's side. A ritual conducted
by Spike brought Dru back to full strength, but unfortunately the Slayer
interfered, which led to Spike ending up in a wheelchair.
Not long after that,
Angel lost his soul again and reunited with Spike and Dru. At first, they
were delighted, but soon Spike's joy turned to jealousy, for Angel constantly
taunted him with suggestions that he and Dru had become involved again.
When Angel finally came up with a plan to awaken a demon who would suck all
non-demon beings into hell, Spike had enough. He realized that destroying
the world wasn't exactly good for the vampire race, and more importantly,
he wanted to get Dru back. Finally out of the wheelchair and strong again
(something he had hidden from Angel and Dru), he saw no other way than to
team up with the Slayer to stop Angel. During the battle, he overpowered
Dru and left town with her.
Even though he'd
promised never to come back, Spike returned to Sunnydale in the episode
"Lovers Walk" – heart-broken, totally plastered and only a shadow
of his old self. Dru, who couldn't forgive him the betrayal, had broken up
with him. However, after a decent spot of good old violence, Spike left
town again, now convinced he'd find a way to win Dru back.
Seems however Spikes
belief was wrong and he showed up in Sunnydale once again, this time
harvesting a new girl on his arm, Blond Bimbo and ex-cordette, Harmony. It
seems more then likely that SPike was only using her, proved by the fact
that he staked her, but she was wearing a ring that prevented harm from
coming to her so did not die. Spike wanted this ring, and after a fight
with Buffy, the ring was sent to Angel, and so naturally, Spike pursued the
ring. But in the end, he didn't get it and ended up back in Sunnydale.
Spike was captured,
due to complete carelessness and talking to himself, by the pathetic group
known as the Initiative. he was imprisoned and a chip planted in his head
with made him unable to attack humans, But Spike, proving to be brilliant,
broke out of this so-called wonder facility run by the government and army,
and skipped about Sunnydale (impersonating Riley by means of skipping that
is, for Spike is just to cool to do it voluntarily.), tried to kill Willow,
although failed due to the chip in his head, ran away until he eventually
turned up on Giles doorstep, asking for help.
sorry for the technically neutered Vampire, they took him in, tied him up
(kinky) and tried to purge him for his help in locating the whereabouts of
the initiative. Along the way, he and Buffy ended up engaged, due to a
spell performed by willow, but personally, if think they both enjoyed this
time together. Spike helped to Scooby gang somewhat and learnt that he was
able to fight demons, so moved out of Giles to do his own thing, although
half helping the gang at the same time. It should be noted that Buffy and
the gang hid Spike from Riley, more proof that nobody likes Riley.
Spike played both
sides during this time as well, meaning, he backstabbed both the Scooby
gang and ADAM to his own agenda. He also half befriended Anya, Xanders
ex-demon girlfriend, which had brought up the idea in some peoples mind
that these two might at some point, hook up. Anything's possible. In the
end however, and up to date, Spike is still chipped, but also saved the day
by rescuing the Scooby gang, what the future holds for him is unknown. but
you can bet it will be good.
