The Master first appeared in "Welcome to the Hellmouth", the first episode of Buffy, as Buffy's first Big Bad.

The Master is unlike other vampires, and is similar looking to Nosferatu, due to his old age. When The Master was staked by Buffy in season one's "Prophecy Girl", he left bones, unlike most vampires. The Master was supposed to be revived by his right-hand kid, the Anointed One, but his plans were stopped by Buffy, and the Anointed One was later killed by Spike.

The Master was also somehow associated with a three-headed demon. During his escape from the Hellmouth, this demon fought Giles, Willow, Cordelia, Jenny, and Xander inside the library, while Buffy fought The Master on the rooftop of Sunnydale High School, above the library. During the fight with the three-headed demon, a library table was turned over and a leg broken, so that it resembled a long, pointed stake. Buffy threw The Master through a skylight in the roof, and he was impaled upon the broken table leg. All the flesh on his bones streamed off, leaving only his skeleton behind. The Anointed One later tried to use these bones in his ritual to return The Master to life, but Buffy interrupted the ritual and crushed the skeleton with a sledge hammer.

The Master is known to have been very old. He sired Darla, who was the sire of Angel. David Boreanaz as Angel Angel is a fictional character on the television shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel played by David Boreanaz. ...


The Master's original human name is Heinrich Joseph Nest, though this was never mentioned in the series itself.


To truly understand the scale of The Master's reputation and power we look to the fact that when Buffy challenges Angel to fight The Master himself, Angel, an otherwise very brave and heroic character, refuses to, his excuse being "'Cause I'm afraid." Later when we see Angel (as the evil Angelus) and The Master's first meeting The Master effortlessly beat him to the ground, despite Angel being a great and powerful vampire in his own right. But even during this battle Angel still showed virtually no fear, no respect and no acknowledgement to the Master's superiority. He then demonstrated this by persuading Darla, who was sired by the Master, to operate outside of the Master's chain of command while he was right in front of them both. Years later the Master described Angel as being the most savage creature he had ever known who he believed was destined to become his right hand man.


Despite his death, The Master would appear several more times on both Buffy and its spin-off, Angel, usually in flashbacks involving specific vampires. A notable circumstance occured in the Buffy episode "The Wish" in which Cordelia Chase inadvertedly wishes in front of Anyanka that Buffy never came to Sunnydale, thus throwing her in an alternate reality in which The Master rules the town with vampiric versions of Willow and Xander at his side, Angel as a tortured pet of sorts, and most everyone else cowering in fear once the sun goes down. Just before this reality is negated, The Master kills Buffy, thus fulfilling the same prophecy he carried out in "Prophecy Girl". Angel was the highly successful spin-off from the American television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... The Wish is an episode of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer that shows us a different version of Sunnydale. ...
