30 Days of Buffy Day 4: Favorite Female Character

With a show like Buffy that is centered around strong female characters, it’s hard to pick just one as my favorite.  Buffy is the center.  Willow, Anya, Cordelia.  All amazing women.  Even Joyce, Tara and Dawn have some pretty amazing moments.

However, I will say that my favorite female character is Faith.  She’s the anti-Slayer and Buffy’s polar opposite.  They never got along and were never going to, and Faith knew it.

There’s only supposed to be one.  Maybe that’s why you and I can never get along.  We’re not supposed to exist together.

Her dance between good and evil is one for the books.  She constantly struggles to find her identity and her place in the world, but does she ever really find it?  She goes from Buffy to Angel and her journey is never ending.

And she has some pretty great lines.

You’re the bad slayer now?  I’m the good slayer now?

You need to brush up on your Buffy and Faith history.

So, Faith is definitely my favorite female character.  However, some others deserve honorable mentions:

  • Willow, for being so witty and smart and the girl next door.
  • Anya for not having a filter and just saying whatever she thinks.
  • Joyce for being the overall mother figure and being so strong in the face of such interesting circumstances
  • Cordelia for being about saying what she’s thinking and eventually becoming a more amazing hero than anyone thought.
