Spike is a fictional vampire from the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He was created by Joss Whedon and played by actor James Marsters.

General HistoryEdit

William Pratt was born towards the end of the 19th century. A young London socialite, ruefully termed "William the Bloody" for what his peers considered his "bloody awful poetry," he seemed destined for a life of mediocrity.

Fate had another role in mind for him when it crossed his path with that of the vampiress Drusilla. Instantly smitten by the pallid beauty, William allowed himself to be turned into a vampire as well.

Adopting the moniker "Spike" (after his favored method of torturing victims), William went on to become of the most feared and reviled vampires across several continents.

His travels brought him to the Hellmouth in Sunnydale, where he would alternately clash and ally himself with the vampire slayer Buffy as well as his grandsire Angel. Eventually, having fallen in love with Buffy and determined to become a better man, he acquired a soul and reformed his evil ways.

Traitor Game XIIIEdit

Spike first appeared in Traitor Game XIII: Fright Club. Pulled straight from the apocalyptic battle against agents of Wolfram and Hart (the series finale of Angel: The Television Series), Spike found himself in another conflict with End of the World stakes.

Notable events involving Spike during the course of that game included confrontations with the vampire Alucard (whom Spike mistakenly believed was his old rival Dracula) and Spike's Scareoke rendition of "Rock the Slayer of Love" (sung to the tune of Billy Idol's "Rock the Cradle of Love"). The plantinum haired vampire was also transmogrified into the form of a puppet for a time.

Though he didn't take the game seriously until very close to the end, Spike nearly managed to save the day for the good guys by correctly identifying the two remaining Traitors. Unfortunately, his best efforts were nullified by the incorrect guesses of the other sole remaining non-Traitor at the time, the floating skull Morte.

At the end of the game, Spike returned home to Los Angeles, only to learn that the "City of Angels" had been transported to Hell. (See Angel: After The Fall)

Traitor Game XIVEdit

Spike made two cameos in Traitor Game XIV: Legion. One, an Out-Of-Character appearance, had Spike refusing to make an encore appearance in the games like so many other former players were doing.

His next, In-Character, appearance was during the Epilogue of the game. When Halfrek, recently restored to life, showed up in Los Angeles, Spike offered her asylum at his mansion in Beverly Hills.
