HISTORY

    Drusilla was one of the most feared vampires in the entire world, and an insane one too. Drusilla was severely weakened when she was attacked and severely injured by an angry mob in Prague, leaving her in a weakened and frail condition. Spike cared for her and the couple traveled to the Hellmouth and used its energy to help restore Drusilla's strength and health. Drusilla, fully restored, turned the tables and took care of Spike, when he wa temporarily crippled by Buffy. When Angel reverted to Angelus, he re-joined the couple. Drusilla was delighted by Angelus' determination to destroy the world, and encouraged his ongoing sexual attention; both dynamics strongly disturbed Spike, who wanted Drusilla to himself again and did not particularly want the world to end. When Angelus resurrected the ancient samurai demon Kelgor, Drusilla betrayed her vampire family and sided with Kelgor, who planned to decimate everything in sight. Despite her betrayal, Spike took her back when Buffy the Vampire Slayer killed Kelgor. Spike took Dru away from Sunnydale to South America but Drusilla had become disillusioned with their relationship. She felt that Spike wo longer demon enough for her and broke up with him, but offered to to remain friends to which Spike rejected.

    Drusilla has been captured by a human inquisitor and thrown into a Prague jail. The inquisitor proceeds to torture Drusilla in a unique chair built for that purpose in 1478. Before torture, he exposes Dru to a box that will cause her to remember the pain forever, worsening her tenuous hold on reality. Drusilla tries to recount the things that make her happy, including little girls lost at the fair and little boys wandering too far from home, so that she can forget the torture. Spike is lying imprinted into the ground under the bridge he was thrown from by a Prague mob that shoved a stake into his chest, inches from his heart. He then moves across the city, finds Drusilla, and dispatches her captor. Spike picks up a damaged Drusilla and carries her out the door, headed for a first showdown with a Slayer in a town with a Hellmouth called Sunnydale.


POWERS + WEAKNESSES

Drusilla has both prescient visions and some facility with hypnosis. She is also prone to hallucinations.

Dru has all the vulnerabilities of a Buffyverse vampire: direct sunlight will cause combustion that would eventually kill her if she stays out in the sun's rays for more than a few seconds. A stake through the heart and decapitation would instantly kill her. In addition, certain objects of religious significance to Christians -- specifically Bibles, crucifixes, and holy water -- can burn her flesh.
