I Heart Characters #9; A Mental Case


“I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love.”

This week’s The I Heart Characters topic is “A Mental Case” so I had to choose ‘A totally crazy character or even one who thinks they are because of mental illness’ Let’s talk about Drusilla from Buffy The Vampire Slayer/ Angel.

Drusilla was an ordinary human, if you don’t count that she could see the future. Angelus turned her insane before making her vampire, like him. Drusilla had to see him murder her whole family but for some reason Drusilla loved him in a way. Drusilla felt like a third wheel with Angelus and Darla, so she turned Spike into a vampire.

“It was over the moment I saw her. She was my opposite in every way. Dutiful daughter. Devout Christian. Innocent and unspoiled. I took one look at her and I knew. She’d be my masterpiece.”

Drusilla is crazy in a childish way but she is also cunning and dangerous. She used hypnosis to kill one of the Slayers. Dru often speaks in riddles and makes no sense. Her insanity made her a source of great fear for both vampires and demons.

“This one’s got cow eyes, big and black. Mooooo.”

Which character would you like to read about but the opposite sex of what they identified with in the original story?
