A mysterious and tormented vampire, Angel was once a vicious killer -- until a gypsy family cursed him, and returned his soul to his body. Burdened with a conscience, he became aware of all the pain he had caused others, and vowed he would no longer kill. Despite his best attempts to avoid Buffy, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to the Slayer.
Typical quote: "When you become a vampire, the demon takes your body, but it doesn't get your soul; that's gone. No conscience, no remorse, it's an easy way to live. You have no idea what it's like to have done the things I've done...and care."
