Faith's Bio
Faith

Faith is the other Slayer, called after Kendra was killed by Drusilla. She, like many characters, is a bit of a mystery. What we do know is that she is one troubled girl. Her Watcher (a woman) was killed by a vampire named Kakistos, and Faith witnessed it — then ran away, bringing her plenty of guilt. She's from Boston, and her mother is apparently dead (and was an alcoholic when she was alive). Faith enjoys slaying more than Buffy does (it makes her "hungry and horny"), and she is quite sure that being a Slayer makes her better than everybody else, as well as immune to laws and rules. After Faith accidentally killed the Deputy Mayor, she went to the Mayor himself, offering her services, and they developed a close (if somewhat odd) relationship. She was then officially a rogue Slayer. When Angel pretended to have been turned back into Angelus, Faith was eager to team up with him and torture Buffy, and her jealousy of Buffy became painfully obvious. Later, Faith shot Angel with a poison arrow, for which the cure turned out to be the blood of a Slayer. Buffy intended to feed Faith to Angel, but ended up putting her in a coma instead. Faith remained in a coma until February, 2000 — when she woke up and went seeking revenge against Buffy. Her method of choice was to switch bodies with Buffy via a gift left to her by the deceased Mayor. The experience was difficult for Faith, as she seemed to realize how unhappy she was with herself. She headed to Los Angeles and was hired by Wolfram and Heart to kill Angel, but instead she tried to get Angel to kill her. He wouldn't, and took her under his care until she turned herself in to the Police Department (she was wanted for crimes presumably including assault and murder). She is currently incarcerated in an LA prison.

Eliza's Bio
Eliza

Eliza Patricia Dushku, 33, grew up in Watertown, Massachusetts, and graduated from high school there. She is Albanian-Danish, and was raised Mormon, but isn't very religious these days (though she does "believe in a higher power"). Her mother is a college professor, and her oldest brother is in the Peace Corps in Central America. Eliza got what you might call her start in the business by signing plays for deaf children at the Watertown Children's Theater, but she got her first film role at 10 years old, in That Night. She continued to get movie roles (you might recognize her as the daughter in True Lies) until she chose to take some time off during her junior and senior years of high school. Buffy was her first role after graduating high school (originally intended as a five-episode stint), and since filming started well before her eighteenth birthday, she had to become legally emancipated from her parents in order to work the long hours. Eliza is a self-described tomboy, only recently beginning to "act like a girl." She is a good singer, has studied dance, does a little Tae-Bo, and loves yoga. Her musical tastes range from the Beastie Boys to Lauryn Hill to Metallica. She currently lives with one of her brothers, and has been appearing in quite a few movies recently. She has said that she's open to guest appearances on Buffy and/or Angel, but she has no interest in signing a long-term contract, and plans to attend college.
