A robotics expert and leader of the evil Trio, Warren made it his mission to ruin Buffy's life. In his greatest affront to the Scooby Gang, Warren killed Willow's girlfriend, Tara. In response, Willow, under the spell of dark forces, magically flayed him and left him to die, but was saved by the witch Amy, who used her magic to keep him alive and threatening Buffy and Willow.
Warren and Amy remained in the remnants of Sunnydale after the massive exodus and were present during the town's destruction. They remained for months in the crater, feeding on whatever edible substance they could find, until they were found by General Voll. In exchange for their aid against Buffy and the Slayers, Warren asked for a chance to exact revenge on Willow. Warren and Amy captured Willow and attempted to lobotomizd her, but were interrupted by Buffy and teleported away. Warren resurfaced later on, building a magic missile that targets and destroys Buffy's Scotland castle headquarters.
