Caleb (Buffyverse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (765 words)
Caleb is an arrogant, misogynistic defrocked priest who is allied with The First Evil and serves as one of the "big bads" of Season 7.
Caleb was the one who organized the attack of the Bringers on the Potential Slayers around the world and the man responsible for setting up the bomb that destroyed the Watcher's Council Headquarters in London and caused the deaths of Quentin Travers and all Watchers and Council Operatives present.
Caleb provided Buffy and her allies with a villain who was both a physical threat (in contrast to the non-corporeal First Evil) and a recognizable individual (as opposed to the nameless Bringers and Turok-Han, who were formidable but also more or less interchangeable).
Empty Places (Buffy episode) at AllExperts (1477 words)
At the deserted school Buffy is confronted by Caleb, who gives her a beating, and returns home to find that Faith has taken the tense potential slayers, and Dawn, to the Bronze for a night of relaxation.
Buffy takes the reminder badly and heads out to the school to pick up the rest of her belongings, sending the Potentials downstairs to be with the others and instructing Faith to lead the research effort.
Buffy continues to argue her point and the reasoning that Caleb is protecting something crucial at the vineyard, but no one agrees with her.
