Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(PG-16)

Into each generation a slayer is born. One girl in all the world, a chosen one. One born with the strength and skill to fight vampires, to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers.

Thousands of years ago, in ancient Africa, a group of tribal elders known as the Shadow Men used powerful magic to instilling a girl with the heart, soul and spirit of a demon. This development granted the girl great strength, agility, and endurance: she became the first Slayer, made to fight the vampires and demons that roamed the earth. The Shadow Men's descendants went on to form the Watcher's Council, an organization devoted to locating and guiding Slayers.

Upon the calling of a Slayer, the chosen girl is endowed with multiple powers. She has strength greater than that of any human, and the majority of demons and vampires. Her agility and reflexes are quicker than most, and she is significantly more durable and resistant to attack. Despite this, they are far from invulnerable, but heal quite fast, being able to fall off multi-story buildings with little harm. With enough training, a slayer's heightened senses can let her fight blindfolded or in complete darkness. Lastly, a slayer shares a psychic link with all past slayers, dreaming of past actions. These dreams are usually vague and can, occasionally, be prophetic.

In 2003, an entity known as the First Evil started a plot to end the Slayer line and unleash hell on earth. It eliminated several Potential Slayers and destroyed the Watcher's Council, taking the majority of its members with it. Later that year, while attempting to stop the First, Slayer Buffy Summers uncovered a scythe created for the Slayer to wield. At Buffy's request, magic was used to tap into the scythe's essence. The arcane rules governing the calling of Slayers were altered, and every living Potential became a Slayer, ending the legacy of “one girl in all the world.”

It has been months since the Slayer line was altered. Girls all over the world have been called and are discovering their powers. The reformed Watcher's Council has located about seventy Slayers, moving them to their new Headquarters in Scotland.

These Slayers have been trained and placed in squads. Each squad consists of five Slayers and an assortment of other allies: witches, werewolves, pretty much anything imaginable.

"Soon," the voice growled. "Soon it shall be done."

The creature stood up. It's face obscured by the shadows. The creature placed its crab-like claw on the desk. Thirteen containers were arranged in a circle. Seven of them were filled with hearts. The hearts of Slayers.

"Soon... All the magic will dissappear." A dark, sinister chuckle came from him. "And so will the Slayers."
