Spike (aka William “The Bloody”) is a character created by Joss Whedon for the cult TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and Angel. Portrayed by James Marsters, he is considered a breakout character.
Spike evolved from villain – to comic relief – to hero – lover of the titular character, Buffy – and coming to parallel Angel in terms of motivation. He became one of the show’s primary focuses in its final season, and then moved to its spin-off Angel. He appeared on the Angel season 5 DVD covers alongside its titular character.
