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.”
