Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan, more called "Lorne" or "The Host", is a fictional character created by David Greenwalt and Joss Whedon for the television series Angel. The character was portrayed by actor Andy Hallett. Lorne was born as Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan in the demonic dimension of Pylea. Lorne, as he prefers to be called, wasn't like his fellow Deathwok clan demons: bloodthirsty "champions" undertaking quests against evil, he is a gentle soul. Lorne would rather enjoy life than train to be a fighter, he enjoyed beauty and music, difficult, considering his world had no music. Lorne refused to train his innate mystical senses to learn to hunt beasts and is considered the shame of his clan. In 1996, Lorne was sucked through it, he discovered music and culture like he never imagined. Lorne learned to hone his mystical senses to read people's auras, but found it easiest to do so when they sang, baring their souls, he opened up a karaoke bar on the same spot that he arrived on an old abandoned building.
Lorne contracted the Transuding Furies to cast a sanctuary spell on the spot, which stopped any demon violence from occurring on it. He named the bar "Caritas", the Latin word for "charity", allowed anyone, good or evil, to become a patron. At some point he befriended psychic Agnes "Aggie" Belfleur, whom he visits in the episode "Over the Rainbow". Caritas became a success in the morally ambiguous Los Angeles underground scene. To most who visited the bar, Lorne was called "The Host", he states he did not use the name "Lorne" in this dimension, because his striking green skin prompted people to make Lorne Greene jokes. Lorne is reluctant at times to help Angel and the other heroes of the series, preferring to maintain a neutral stance and provide a peaceful place for all demons, but his essential goodness wins out over his reticence, he starts off by giving the characters advice and encouragement, but as time goes on, he becomes more directly involved in the cases of Angel Investigations—even asking for Angel's help to avert the end of the world when Angel had severed ties with the rest of the group after Darla's resurrection—and his many contacts in Los Angeles' magical underworld prove useful.
Lorne reluctantly joins the team in their mission to Pylea to rescue Cordelia, discovering that he could incapacitate the natives by singing songs and causing them to cower from the "strange sorcery". On leaving, he decides returning to Pylea had been good for him as it had reaffirmed he did not belong there and was right to stay away. In Season Three of Angel, Caritas is raided by Charles Gunn's old gang and it is temporarily put out of action being destroyed by Daniel Holtz. After that, Lorne moves to the Hyperion Hotel and finds himself becoming far more attached to the AI team, he looks after the infant Connor while Angel is on business. While there, he discovers that Gavin Park had the Hyperion Hotel bugged, A. I. manages to destroy them. He leaves to start a singing career in Las Vegas, Nevada. A crime lord forces him, under threat of killing innocents, to use his empathic abilities to locate audience members with promising futures so he can steal them. Back in L. A. after being rescued by Angel and Fred, Lorne helps restore Cordelia's lost memories and is part of the fight against the resulting Jasmine crisis.
In the show's fifth and final season, Lorne finds himself the new head of Wolfram & Hart's Entertainment Division, at first fitting into the job with relative ease and making various business deals in the film industry. As time goes on, his kindness is replaced by a growing cynicism and self-loathing of his position of "cheerleader" for Angel and his friends when Gunn is abandoned in a Hell dimension to recover Lindsey McDonald because Lindsey could possess information they needed; when his close friend Fred is murdered and her body usurped by the Old One known as Illyria, Lorne becomes filled with despair which he keeps secret from the rest of his heartbroken friends. By the conclusion of the series, he announces he is leaving Los Angeles after carrying out his part in Angel's plan to destroy the Circle of the Black Thorn; when Lorne learns what his part is to be, he tells Angel "I'll do this last thing for you, for us... but I'm out, you won't find me in the alley afterwards. Hell, you won't find me at all.
Do me a favor. Don't try." Lorne's part is to betray and murder longtime enemy-turned-ally Lindsey, who in his final words mutters at the unfairness of being killed by Lorne, a "flunky", not his longtime rival Angel. In his final scene, after shooting Lindsey with a silenced pistol, a disgusted and broken Lorne walks off into the darkness, he drops the gun and says, "Goodnight, folks" as he leaves. In the canonical comic book continuation Angel: After the Fall, Lorne is wandering the streets of L. A. when the entire town is sent into hell. He flees in a demonic taxicab instead of assisting against the resulting demonic invasion. However, the cab is destroyed and Lorne finds himself watching civilians in Silver Lake fighting back, he assists them with his vocal powers. Though they are soon joined by a sorceress, many Silver Lake residents die before a permanent demon-free area is established; the people elect Lorne as their leader. Lorne tries to r

Unable to dent Cordelia's determination to live there, the team attempts an exorcism, angering the ghost of the original tenant, who suffered a fatal heart attack after bricking her grown son behind a wall. At Angel Investigations, Cordelia is painfully reminded of the unfortunate state of her life, her acting career is not advancing and she lives in a dank, dirty apartment where the utilities do not work well and cockroaches roam freely. When she goes home to a floor covered in roaches, she flees to move in with Angel. Meanwhile, Doyle is in debt to some demons and one comes to collect, or to kill Doyle as a message to others if he cannot pay.
Doyle stops by Angel's place the next morning. Angel wants Cordelia out of his apartment, so agrees to help Doyle deal with his demon trouble if he will help Cordelia find an apartment. Doyle and Cordelia go apartment hunting. After many failed attempts, Cordelia finds the perfect apartment. Telling Doyle that the unsightly wall that needs removing adds to its perfection, Cordelia closes the deal. In the meantime, Angel waits at Doyle's apartment until the demon, shows up. Griff explains that his boss no longer cares about the money, but needs to make an example of Doyle by having him killed. Angel promises Doyle will pay. Meanwhile, Cordelia has discovered, she pluckily tries to scare the ghost away. Angel and Doyle stop by and realize there is a ghost, they carry Cordelia, out the door, promising to help her perform an exorcism. Angel does not understand, she explains that she feels she is being punished with an awful life because of how nasty she was when she was younger. If she can get a nice apartment it shows that she will stop being punished.
The team researches the building's history for a clue to the ghost's identity. The evidence points to Maude Pearson, builder and first resident of the Pearson Arms building. While Doyle goes to pick up the arcane supplies for the exorcism, Angel finds out from Detective Kate Lockley that Maude Pearson died of a heart attack, her son, with whom she was fighting because she disapproved of his fiancée, vanished afterwards, it seems clear to Angel: the son killed his mother skipped town with his girlfriend. Angel learns that while there have never been any murders reported in the apartment, there has been a long string of suicides there; the ghost lures Cordelia back to the apartment by imitating Angel's own voice, Angel and Doyle, realizing what's happened, rush to the apartment. At the apartment, Cordelia is being attacked by Maude and begins to reach the point of emotional collapse under Maude's spate of abuse, targeting Cordelia's feelings of worthlessness. Doyle and Angel arrive just in time to rescue Cordelia, whom the ghost has hung by the neck with the chandelier string.
They begin the exorcism without Cordelia, a sobbing wreck due to Maude tormenting her, but a cyclone of flying debris prevents them from completing the ritual. When the three try to leave, the door opens to reveal three demons with large guns, determined to kill Doyle. A brawl ensues, while Maude telekinetically pulls Cordelia back into the bedroom to continue torturing her. However, when Maude calls Cordelia a bitch, it reminds Cordelia of her former reputation, she begins to fight back, she screams at Maude, causing the ghost to temporarily vanish, Cordelia proceeds to start to obliterate the disliked apartment wall. As Angel snaps Griff's neck, the hole Cordelia has made in the wall exposes a rotting skeleton and the presence of a second ghost. In a mystical flashback, the team learns that Maude Pearson prevented her son Dennis from leaving with his fiancée by bricking him alive into this wall. Upon completion, Maude died, she screams, as the ghost of her son Dennis attacks and banishing his mother's ghost forever.
In the coda, order restored, Angel reminds Doyle that he'll need to reveal his background at some point. Meanwhile, who has found her "inner bitch" again, now feels comfortable speaking with her Sunnydale friends about her exciting life in Los Angeles, she admits she has a roommate, but claims she "never sees him." Hearing himself mentioned, the ghost, whom Cordelia affectionately calls Phantom Dennis makes his presence known. Marcus Redmond, who plays the bounty hunter demon Griff in this episode, appears again as the gladiator demon Cribb in "The Ring". Writer Jane Espenson intended the episode's title to match the format of a classified ad, she considered "Re: Lease" as a possible title. The episode is "really all about Cordelia regaining her inner bitch," says supervising producer Tim Minear, he points out. In "Somnambulist", the serial killer whom Angel suspects may be himself is dubbed "The Pope" by the tabloids. Minear says, "That was unintentional...a happy coincidence that worked out wonderfully for the show."
This episode introduces Phantom Dennis. Friendly with Cordelia's friends and exhibiting caring feelings for Cordelia herself ("Expecting

Willow Danielle Rosenberg is a fictional character created for the fantasy television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She was portrayed throughout the TV series by Alyson Hannigan. Willow plays an integral role within the inner circle of friends—called the Scooby Gang—who support Buffy Summers, a teenager gifted with superhuman powers to defeat vampires and other evil in the fictional town of Sunnydale; the series begins as Buffy and their friend Xander are in 10th grade and Willow is a shy, nerdy girl with little confidence. She begins to study witchcraft, her dependence on magic becomes so consuming that it develops into a dark force that takes her on a redemptive journey in a major story arc when she becomes the sixth season's main villain, threatening to destroy the world in a fit of grief and rage. The Buffy series became popular and earned a devoted fanbase. Of the core characters, Willow changes the most, becoming a complex portrayal of a woman whose powers force her to seek balance between what is best for the people she loves and what she is capable of doing.
Her character stood out as a positive portrayal of a Jewish woman and at the height of her popularity, she fell in love with another woman, a witch named Tara Maclay. They became one of the first lesbian couples on U. S. television and one of the most positive relationships of the series. Despite not being a titular character, Willow Rosenberg holds the distinction of having the second largest number of appearances on episodes of Buffy and the spin-off series Angel. Alyson Hannigan appeared as Willow in all 144 episodes of Buffy, as well as guest appearances in three episodes of the spinoff Angel, for a total of 147 on screen appearances over the course of both series, she is featured in an animated series and video game, both of which use Hannigan's voice, the comics Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven which use Hannigan's likeness and continues Willow's storyline following the television series.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was conceived by Joss Whedon for a 1992 feature film. However, in its development Whedon felt it lost some of the quirkiness he considered was the heart of the project, it was not received as well as he liked, he began to develop for television the concept of a fashion-conscious girl named Buffy, imbued with superhuman abilities and attends a high school situated on a portal to hell. Whedon created a group of friends for the main character, including Willow Rosenberg and Xander Harris. A half-hour pilot was filmed starring Riff Regan as Willow, but it was left unaired and network executives requested that Regan be replaced. Willow's character demanded that she be shy and unsure of herself, the casting department encountered some difficulty finding actors who could portray this and still be likable. After seven auditions, 23-year-old Alyson Hannigan was hired for the role, she was chosen for being able to spin the character's lines with a self-effacing optimism. She stated in an interview, "I didn't want to do Willow as someone who's feeling sorry for herself.
In the first season, she couldn't talk to guys, nobody liked her. I was like,'I don't want to play somebody who's down on herself.'"In the beginning of the series, Hannigan used her own experiences in high school—which she called "overwhelmingly depressing"—to guide her portrayal of Willow: "My theory on high school was, get in, get out and I won't get hurt. It was a miserable experience, because you're a walking hormone in this place, just so cruel. There were times that were OK, but it's not the little myth that high school is the best years of your life. No way." Whedon intended Willow to be realistically introverted, saying, "I wanted Willow to have that kind of insanely colorful interior life that shy people have. And Alyson has that, she has a loopiness I found creeping into the way Willow talked, great. To an extent, all the actors conform to the way I write the character, but it stands out in Willow's case." The Buffy television series first aired mid-season in March 1997 immediately earning positive critical reviews.
Willow is presented as a bookish nerd with considerable computer skills, dowdily dressed and intimidated by more popular girls in school. She grows faint at the sight of monsters, but forms a friendship with Buffy Summers and is revealed to have grown up as friends with Xander, they are mentored by the school librarian, Buffy's Watcher, Rupert Giles, who works with Willow in researching the various monsters the group encounters. Joss Whedon found that Hannigan was gifted reacting with fear and viewers responded when she was placed in danger, needing to be rescued by Buffy. Willow in various predicaments became common in early episodes. However, Willow establishes herself as integral to the group's effectiveness willing to break rules by hacking into secure computer systems. In the second season when the characters are in 11th grade, Willow becomes more sure of herself, standing up to the conceited Cordelia Chase, approaching Xander, on whom she has had a crush for years
Harmony Kendall is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel. The character is portrayed by Mercedes McNab. Cast as a minor character, McNab's credited status elevated to guest star and series regular over the course of her tenure in Buffy and Angel. Harmony appeared in the unaired pilot as a member of Cordelia Chase's clique, the "Cordettes." She subsequently appears in the second episode of Season One, "The Harvest," and makes appearances throughout the first three seasons, a larger role in another two. When Cordelia begins dating Xander Harris, Harmony shuns her from their clique and usurps her position as leader of the group. After Cordelia and Xander's breakup, Harmony cruelly tricks Cordelia into thinking she has been re-admitted into the clique, only to humiliate and reject her. In the episode "The Wish," a vengeance demon grants Cordelia's wish that Buffy had never arrived in Sunnydale. Harmony appears in the alternate, hellish reality, again a follower of Cordelia's "Cordettes."In the final showdown with Mayor Wilkins during his Ascension in the episode "Graduation Day," Harmony is killed/sired by a vampire.
She reappears in the episode "The Harsh Light of Day" as a vampire, having retained her characteristic pettiness, susceptibility to stronger-willed people, an affection for unicorn figurines. Harmony begins a sexual relationship with Spike, her "blondie bear." Neither Spike nor Harmony are satisfied with their relationship. They separate, although she agrees to rekindle their relationship after Spike escapes from the Initiative. Harmony regrets this decision after recognizing Spike's renewed campaign against the Slayer, chases him out of her lair with a stake when he seeks her help in the episode "Pangs."Spike's ambition to kill the Slayer rubs off. After separating from Spike, Harmony wants to be an independent, strong vampire who can get by on her own, her minions destroyed, Harmony returns to Spike for protection until it becomes clear that Spike's infatuation with Buffy has become an obsession. Having departed Sunnydale, Harmony is next seen in the Buffy spin-off Angel, in the episode "Disharmony."
She visits her old friend Cordelia in Los Angeles. Harmony has difficulty controlling her demon side, she enters Cordelia's bedroom at night, driven by bloodlust, but apologizes for her actions and intentions when Cordelia wakes up. Cordelia misunderstands her explanation, believing her to be a lesbian until the matter is cleared up by Willow in a phone call. Despite this, Cordelia insists on giving Harmony a chance, while rest of the team grows frustrated with her habits such as popping gum or tearing pages out of old, irreplaceable books, she accompanies the Angel Investigations team on a mission to investigate a new vampire cult, but soon betrays them to their enemies. Cordelia nearly kills Harmony, out of some respect for the friendship they once shared, allows her to leave. Over two years Harmony tries to make a life for herself in L. A, she gains employment at the L. A. branch of Wolfram & Hart, as a member of the secretarial pool. Harmony is attracted by the building's necro-tempered glass windows, as well as the firm's non-judgmental workplace culture and dental plan.
A few weeks into her employment with the firm, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce hires her out of the blue to be Angel's new personal secretary, after Angel and his staff are given control of that branch of Wolfram & Hart. Angel reluctantly agrees, on the strict condition that Harmony continues to refrain from drinking human blood. Harmony is reunited with Spike when he returns, first as a ghost and in corporeal form, she tries to connect with him, hopes to renew their relationship now that he has a soul. Spike shows no interest for Harmony until he regains his corporeal form and proceeds to seduce her into a brief, disastrous fling, after which neither of them puts any effort into rekindling their tumultuous relationship. At this point in her un-life, Harmony feels isolated and alone, she knows that she is incompetent as an evil vampire, but her struggle to lead a more normal life is hindered because she lacks a soul. Angel treats her with distrust and masked hostility, her input and presence are ignored by his team.
Harmony experiences an inability to connect with her co-workers, who resent her quick rise to the position of the CEO's secretary. In the episode "Harm's Way," she is framed for murder by Tamika, another vampire secretary who wants her job, she clears her name and saves a demon summit by staking her scheming rival on a conference table with a pair of chopsticks, since the demons required a W&H employee's death to seal their deal. Despite her incompetence, Harmony manages to prove a'sort of' asset to the team,'torturing' Eve to get information, helping Wesley search for information about Knox's plans, aiding Lorne in protecting Eve from her replacement as their liaison to the Senior Partners
