Biography

Character history

Warren Mears is mentioned to have attended Sunnydale High with the Scooby Gang, before transferring to a tech college in Dutton. As a nerd, he was frequently bullied while growing up (cf. "Seeing Red"). Warren is first introduced in the Season Five episode "I Was Made to Love You" as a lonely young man who builds a robotic girlfriend for companionship and sex. Although April was designed to be the perfect girlfriend, Warren instead falls for a real girl, Katrina Silber and leaves April to run out of batteries in his dorm. April follows him and attempts to kill Katrina out of programmed jealousy. Warren sics her onto Buffy Summers in self-preservation, and Buffy finally halts April by causing her to malfunction. Warren later constructs the Buffybot for Spike in the episode "Intervention".

The Trio

In Season Six, Warren is the leader of "the Trio," a gang of nerds scheming to take over Sunnydale through technology and magic. Initially cowardly, but relatively harmless, Warren begins to display darker, mysogynistic tendencies (appropriate traits for a villain in a show with overall themes of feminism) when he attempts to have non-consensual sex with a mystically-entranced Katrina. When Katrina recovers and accuses him of rape, he accidentally kills her as she tries to escape (cf. "Dead Things"). Despite beginning as equal partners, Warren soon begins to dominate and manipulate his Trio teammates Andrew Wells and Jonathan Levinson, finally driving Jonathan to betray him. His plans are eventually thwarted by Buffy, propelling him into a murderous fury resulting in him shooting both Buffy and her friend Tara Maclay (cf. "Seeing Red"). When Tara dies, her girlfriend Willow Rosenberg goes insane with grief, tracks Warren down, tortures, and flays him alive with witchcraft (cf. "Villains"). It appears that Willow also incinerates Warren's body, but in "The Long Way Home, Part Four", it is revealed that this "disappearing trick" is the work of Amy Madison, who uses her magic to keep Warren "alive," albeit in a skinless state.

Powers and abilities

Although Warren displays no independant supernatural powers, he does possess a genius level intellect, especially when it comes to technology and robotics. He is capable of building highly advanced robots, which can even pass for ordinary humans in society. The Buffybot which he built successfully masqueraded as Buffy Summers for several weeks while the real Slayer was dead. His other creations include an invisibilty ray (cf. "Gone") and at least two jet packs (cf. "Seeing Red"). In Season Eight, he also displays enough knowledge of biology to perform a lobotomy (cf. "The Long Way Home, Part Four"). A Slayer in the fictional Buffyverse established by Buffy and Angel, is a young female bestowed with mystical powers that originate from the heart of a pure-demon, which gives her superhuman senses, strength, speed, endurance, agility, and healing in the fight against forces of darkness. ...

In Season Six's "Seeing Red", Warren gains the power of the Orbs of Nezzla'khan, which grant him superhuman strength and invulnerability. In this state, he is even a physical match for Buffy, until Jonathan betrays him by telling her to destroy his orbs. Seeing Red is episode 19 of season 6 of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...


Literary devices

The writers of Buffy the Vampire Slayer make use of several literary devices in Warren's character. Novels and short stories do not simply come from nowhere. ...


Warren's apparent death by Willow's hands, after being tortured and skinned by her, is arguably foreshadowed on these occasions: Foreshadowing is a literary device in which an author drops subtle hints about plot developments to come later in the story. ...

  • In "Seeing Red", Warren knocks Xander Harris to the floor and says, "Let's see how popular you are without a face." This also foreshadows Xander's eventual loss of an eye.
  • Buffy symbolically emasculates him by crushing the Orbs of Nezzla'khan to powder.
  • In "Villains" Warren, upon learning that Buffy survived but unaware of Tara's death, seeks help from Rack, who tells him, "The Slayer is the least of your problems." Warren replies, "Oh, you're right, I'm sorry, let's talk about my skin troubles!"
  • Warren's manner of "death" arguably uses poetic justice. In the episode "Seeing Red", Warren comes up with the plan to skin a Nezzla demon to get the Orbs of Nezzla'khan. However, this idea of skinning becomes part of his undoing in the episode "Villains".

Romantic Interests

  • April — Lonely, Warren built the robot April to be the perfect girlfriend but eventually grew bored of her, abandoning her rather than dumping her face-to-face. Despite her pleasant and cheerfully optimistic nature, April was dangerously loyal to Warren and physically attacked anybody who came between them, including Spike, Buffy, and Katrina. April was designed with the abilty to growl and included several fetish programmes (as seen in her POV).
  • Katrina Silber — Warren is found to be in a relationship with Katrina in the Season Five episode "I Was Made to Love You". Although seemingly happy at first, Katrina grew more and more suspicious of her boyfriend throughout the episode, only to discover his robot-girlfriend, April. This discovery repulsed her, resulting in their immediate break-up. When Warren later tried to rape her, she fought back and had her head smashed in with a glass bottle.
  • Andrew Wells — Although their relationship was very vague, it was implied in the Season Six episode "Seeing Red" that Warren seduced Andrew with promises of love and togetherness for his own benefit. Warren touches Andrew affectionately while throwing his weight around in the Bronze and when he later abandons him, Andrew sobs, "How could be do that do me? He promised we'd be together. He was just using me. He never really loved -- [catching himself] -- hanging out with us."
  • Amy Madison — In the Season Eight comics, Warren revealed that he had been with Amy since she saved his life offscreen in the Season Six episode, "Villains". Although their relationship has not been confirmed, Amy refers to him as her boyfriend on several occasions and addresses him as "sweetie."
