Favorite Fictional Character --- Angel
Well here we are, a new week and a new FFC post. Well as you can tell I picked Angel from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Angel, one of the sexiest vampires to grace the small screen. How can you not love him, look at him, he's hot. Of course it helps that he was played by David Boreanz, who is one of the hottest guys in hollywood.
For those of you who were living under large, unmovable rocks from 1997 through 2004, Angel was the cursed, brooding vampire that broke Buffy's heart. He was turned into a vampire by Drusilla (played by the wonderful Julie Benz) and the two of them went on a rampage, slaughtering hundreds of people and reveling in the blood. He killed a young gypsy girl, then had her clan curse him with his soul back. He spent years living in squalor, feeding of rats, and moping around the world, feeling sorry for himself.
He is given a purpose to protect Buffy and the rest is history. He was a brilliantly complex character who grew over seven years into a man who loved his friends, his family, and even under the worst circumstances always tried to do the right thing. You see him as the hero and the villian at times and both of those aspects of his personality are needed to make him the man that he is.
