A powerful seer blessed with visions of the future, the chaste and pure Drusilla was destined for sainthood. Until her path crossed with the powerful vampire Angelus in 1860. Desiring her gifts and even more her defilement, he stalked her and tortured her, slaughtering her family and driving her mad before he sired her as a vampire; transforming what would have been a powerful force for good ... into a murderous psychopath.

The now mad Drusilla would create her own child, Spike and they have been a couple for many decades. Despite her insanity she is still a powerful capable of psychic visions that show her the future making her a potent threat.

Drusilla first appeared on September 29, 1997 on Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode, "School Hard". She was portrayed by Juliet Landau who would go on to reprise her role intermittently throughout the series as well as its spin-off Angel TV series.
