Gabriel, Father — Gwendolyn Post, Mrs
[ G ]
Gabriel, Father: local clergyman whose family dated back to the early 1800s. Father Gabriel knew a lot about the history of Sunnydale. He was hanged by Hus.
Gachnar: fear demon. Thrived on terror. Was only two inches tall, so Buffy squished him with her foot. See also Gachnar, The Mark of.
Gachnar, The Mark of: symbol of the fear demon, Gachnar. When Chaz painted it on the floor of a Halloween party, all of the Halloween props became real. Buffy broke the mark by punching a hole in the floor, but this only resulted in the fear demon being brought forth.
Gage Petronzi: see Petronzi, Gage.
Galway: Angel’s hometown in Ireland when he was human. Darla sired him there in 1753.
Game face: vampire face.
Gary: employee at the Double Meat Palace. Showed Buffy how to use the till. Eaten by the wig lady.
Gathering: Oz defined a gathering as ‘Brie, and mellow song stylings’. See also shindig and hootenanny.
Gavrok, The Box of: flown over on a plane from Central America. Essential to the Mayor’s ascension. The Box of Gavrok contained 50 billion Gavrok spiders. Buffy stole the box from City Hall, but was later forced to return it when the Mayor kidnapped Willow. See also Breath of the Atropics.
Gavrok Spiders: Spiders about a foot long. The Mayor had to digest several of these as an essential part of his ascension. He had them flown in from Central America in the Box of Gavrok. One of the spiders escaped and killed a policeman, but Faith skewered it with her knife.
Gem of Amarrah, The: see Amarrah, The Gem of.
General, The: first name Gregor. Leader of the Knights of Byzantium. Killed by Glory.
Genevieve Holt, Ms: see Holt, Ms Genevieve.
Gentlemen, The: ‘Can’t even shout. Can’t even cry. The Gentlemen are coming by. Looking in windows, knocking on doors… they need to take seven and they might take yours. Can’t call to Mom. Can’t say a word. You’re gonna die screaming but you won’t be heard.’ The Gentlemen were creepy, skeletal freaks straight out of a fairytale nightmare. They floated instead of walking, and had minions that looked like deformed mental patients. The sound of a human voice could kill them, so they magically stole the voices from population of Sunnydale, storing them in a carved wooden box. The Gentlemen had come to harvest seven hearts that they cut from their living victims. They were defeated when Riley smashed the wooden box – releasing the voices – and Buffy killed them all with a single scream.
Geordie, Cousin: Infant cousin of Oz, and also a werewolf. Contaminated Oz after biting his finger. Geordie’s parents were Aunt Maureen and Uncle Ken.
George: mild mannered janitor (no, not that one) at Sunnydale High School. Temporarily possessed by the spirit of James Stanley, during which time he shot and killed Miss Frank.
Gerhard, Professor: head of the anthropology department at Sunnydale’s Cultural History Centre. Had her throat cut, and an ear removed by Hus.
Germans, The: Competitors in Slayerfest ’98. Twins who were armed with AK47s and a grenade launcher. Heavy on the technology and fire power. They tracked Buffy and Cordelia by giving them ‘bugged’ corsages, and received orders from their boss through earpieces. Buffy tricked them into shooting each other.
Giant Preying Mantis: see She Mantis.
Giles, Rupert: Member of The Watchers’ Council, and Watcher to the current Slayer. Able to speak five languages, and translate many more. Perceived by most as a stuffy Englishman, Giles has a wild past and was known as‘Ripper’ in his youth. He worked undercover as a librarian at Sunnydale High, and went on to become the owner of The Magic Box. Giles eventually returned to England after Buffy’s death, and now retains a flat in Bath.
Gina: elderly employee at the Double Meat Palace.
Glarghk Guhl Kashmanic: waxy looking demon summoned by Andrew Wells to attack Buffy. Had a stinger that jutted from its fist. When he stabbed Buffy with it she began to have hallucinations. She thought that she was still in an asylum, and had been there for six years. Convinced that her life in Sunnydale was all part of a mental illness, she tied her friends up in the basement and set the demon on them. Unable to watch them die, Buffy snapped out it just in time to save to save their lives. Willow concocted an antidote from the demon’s stinger.
Gleaves: man who helped to expel Balthazar and El Eliminati from Sunnydale one hundred years ago. Gleaves took Balthazar’s amulet – the source of the demon’s strength and power – which was later buried with him.
Glorificus: Goddess who ruled a hell dimension with two other gods. Expelled after a huge battle from their dimension to ours. Forced to spend half of her time as a human male, Ben. The Beast could only be killed in human form. Existing in this dimension had driven Glorificus insane, and her Jawa minions had to bring her humans to feed upon. By pushing her fingers inside their heads, Glory was able to ‘suck’ their brains, and temporarily regain her sanity. Unfortunately, her victims lost theirs. An enemy of the Knights of Byzantium, Glorificus spent her time on Earth searching for the Key. Buffy beat her senseless with a troll hammer for trying to kill Dawn, and Giles suffocated Ben to stop Glory returning. See also Jawa, Doc and The Monks of Dagon.
Glory: see Glorificus.
Glove of Mynnigon, The: see Mynnigon, The Glove of.
Goodman, Agent: accompanied Graham and Agent Brown to apprehend Riley, and try to take him to a doctor. Riley whooped their asses!
Gorch, Candy: Vampire. Married Lyle Gorch after the death of his brother. Was staked with a wooden handled spatula by Cordelia during Slayerfest ’98.
Gorch, Lyle: Vampire from Abilene. Raised his brother Tector after the death of their mother. The two massacred an entire Mexican village in 1886 – while they were still human! Not very bright. Married Candy Gorch and the two took part in Slayerfest ’98.
Gorch, Tector: Vampire from Abilene. Raised by his brother Lyle after the death of their mother. Was eaten by the Mother Bezoar whilst trying to kill The Slayer. Even more stupid than his brother.

Grounding crystal: Giles got Buffy to look at the flow at the centre of the crystal. It had a hypnotic effect, and Giles then injected her with an organic compound of muscle relaxants and adrenal suppressants. These temporarily robbed her of her Slayer abilities. He did this as part of her cruciamentum.
Guiding spell: used to guide travellers when they become lost. It conjures an emissary from the beyond (in the form of a tiny green light) to lead the way. Willow tried this spell at a Halloween party, but it went wrong. See also Aradia.
