"When it comes to dating, I'm the Slayer."
: Cordelia Chase
Cordelia Chase is the most popular girl in Sunnydale High. As "Queen C", she enjoyed many of the luxuries that came with that--from being one of the youngest students to win May Queen to winning a spot on the cheerleading squad. She was always followed by the "Cordettes", girls who wanted to be just like her.

Originally auditioned for the role of Buffy, but the part eventually went to Sarah Michelle Gellar. She, instead, was given the part of Cordelia after Bianca Lawson (who later played Kendra) turned it down. When asked about her name, she remarks that her mother named her after a perfume. Charisma Carpenter later joined David Boreanaz in the Buffy spin-off, Angel.

+ + + THE SLAYER;
As a tragic truth, a Slayer is doomed to be alone. The world does not know that she exists. She is faceless--meant to blend in. Everyday she puts her life in danger so that the people of the world may live another day. She lives alone and therefore dies alone.
But Buffy Summers lives a different life--one surrounded by friends and family.
Her circle is not by any means big, but in it are reliable friends who have proven themselves time and time again.
Take the time to get to know them as she did...
