Day #14: Favourite female villain

Um. Er. Um. Er.

*Ponders* *Ponders some more* *Ponders even more* *Goes on pondering*

*Tries to think of female villains

I think it's going to have to be Drusilla because she was - well . . . Insane, not to put too fine a point on it. Seriously strange, who listened to what the pixies in her head told her, talked to her dolls (and gave them names) on the one hand frail and childlike on the other hand almost as blood-thirty as Angelus.

Long term lover of Spike, she nonetheless embraced the darkness and inhumanity and cruelty that surrounded Angelus, flirting with him (and more) in front of Spike.

I always felt badly for Dru. Angelus destroyed her family and made her go insane before killing her.

I remember a conversation from Angel. A girl driven insane by her captor later becomes a slayer. Insane she escapes the hospital where she'd been held and attacks Spike thinking he's the man who did this to her. She cuts off his hands (which the nice doctors at Wolfram & Hart sew back on).

In his hospital bed, Spike reminisces about her. Angel says something about her being an innocent victim in all of this and Spikes replies, "So were we - once upon a time." That always sort of summed up Dru for me.

Oh, yes. Angelus really was the ultimate in evil and cold and scary. Quite unlike Spike. He persecuted his victims.

Ah, yes, I vaguely remember that. Well it is true, they were all innocent victims at one times. Which of course leads to the: from where did the very first vampire come?

One theory is that she was Adam's other wife (she was thought to be the first succubus, a soul vampire). There are Chinese vampires that predate all the European sources. I can't remember his name right off hand.
