Alexander Lavelle "Xander" Harris is a close friend of Slayer Buffy Summers and founding member of the Scooby Gang. A student at the Hellmouth-based Sunnydale High, Xander helped aid Buffy in her Slayer duties. In keeping with his habit of attracting demon females, Xander eventually fell in love with an ex-vengeance demon called Anya, but their relationship fell apart when Xander left Anya at the altar on their wedding day and finally ended after Anya's death in 2003. One of the few with no mystical powers or supernatural knowledge, Xander is often considered the weak link of the Scooby Gang; instead, he aids his friends with his emotional insight and support. When the team became a worldwide organization, Xander took on a role similar to Watcher by commanding several Slayer squads.
