Extended Version:Faith grew up in Boston or B town as she calls it. Raised by an abusive mother, Faith is haunted by those memories never quite feeling quite good enough. A World War II veteran mentors the young Faith preparing her to face the world. Bobby Ray’s untimely demise when Faith is 12 leaves her emotionally unprepared to face her destiny.
Called at fifteen to be a slayer when Buffy died briefly at the hands of the Master; her street smarts and natural cockiness helped her as she took the mantle of the slayer. Once again the untimely death of a dear one caused emotional turmoil with Faith as she watched Kakistos slaughter her watcher she ran in fear. This was the first time Faith ran from anything.
She ran to Sunnydale under the ruse of meeting the legendary Buffy. Soon she finds herself in possession of a new Watcher, the spectacularly English Gwendolyn Post. Angel is slowly recovering from his time spent in Hell Ms. Post informs them that a demon called Lagos is in Sunnydale, looking for the Glove of Mynhegon, a big spiky gauntlet number that gives the wearer some hardcore naughty magic powers. Xander tells Faith that Angel is still alive, and she goes to the mansion to kill him thinking Angel is still Angelous and has attacked Giles. Gwen Post turns out to be a renegade evil Watcher, who is trying to take the glove for herself. She convinces Faith that Angel and Buffy are working together for the greater bad, and an enormous fight between the two Slayers ensues. Post manages to get the glove on, but Buffy cuts her hand off, and she is killed by the power released.
Haunted by nightmares of her former Watcher and the betrayal of Ms. Post, Faith begins to slowly change. For a time Rupert Giles servers as Buffy and Faith’s Watcher and Faith thrives. Following his heart regarding his slayer and making a decision going against Watcher tradition, Giles is relieved of his Watcher duties.
Buffy and Faith's stodgy new Watcher, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, sends the Slayers in search of an ancient amulet. After finding it, they discover Balthazar, a demon Wesley had informed them was dead. In order to fight Balthazar, they break into a sporting goods store, where Faith explains her "Want, take, have" philosophy. Buffy and Faith are caught by the police, but use their Slayer-strength to escape. While hunting for Balthazar the next night, Faith accidentally kills a human, the Deputy Mayor.
Unable to deal with her guilt, Faith becomes a rouge slayer working for Mayor Richard Wilkins III. For the first time in her life Faith feels the love and support of a parental figure which spirals her into a path of destruction. Coveting everything Buffy has Faith embarks on a quest to “Take and Have.” Thwarted over and over again by Buffy and Angel the rage with in her grows only to come to end when she and Buffy literally come to blows. This major altercation lands Faith in the hospital with a coma.
After eight months Faith miraculously awakens to find her beloved “father” the Mayor dead at Buffy’s hands. Seeking revenge and with the help of a gift left from the dead Mayor, Faith switches bodies with Buffy.
Once again, Buffy prevailed sending Faith running where she heads to LA to seek vengeance on the Scoobies at the Hyperion the brunt of her anger Angel.
Angel having been through a similar ordeal, well as much as any vampire with a soul can, felt a kinship with Faith and began her on her steps to redemption. Faith with Angel’s support gave herself up to the authorities.
For approximately three years Faith kept her vigil in jail waiting. When the Beast blacked out the son, Angel allowed himself to be de-souled embracing the evil within him, Angelous.
Wesley travels to prison where Faith escapes battles with the Beast and Angelous and ultimately helps Angel regain his soul. Willow also in LA to help Angel takes Faith back with her to Sunnydale where Buffy and Faith fight side by side to defeat the First Evil.
There is for a time an unspoken truce between the remaining Scoobies and Faith as they must reunite for the common good. The Uber Vamps are defeated and Sunnydale is demolished.
Faith Lehane is a Slayer who was activated in 1998 when Kendra Young died at the hands of Drusilla, and the last Slayer to be called by the original succession line before it was abolished in spring 2003.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Faith had a difficult upbringing and life, which left her with various trust and emotional issues. Though she found some stability with her Watcher Diana Dormer, Faith retreated to Sunnydale when Dormer was brutally murdered by the vampire Kakistos, where she became a friend and ally of Buffy Summers and the Scooby Gang. However, numerous events and circumstances took a toll on Faith's sanity and she defected to the side of the evil Mayor Wilkins, helping him to carry out his Ascension and finally finding the stable father figure she always wanted. On the day before the climactic Graduation Day Battle, Faith was critically injured by Buffy and put in a coma, from which she awakened eight months later.
Though she proceeded to wreak even more havoc in Buffy's life and then attempt to assassinate Angel in Los Angeles as part of a deal with Wolfram & Hart, Faith had actually become remorseful of her past deeds and, with help from Angel, willingly surrendered herself to the L.A.P.D. to face the consequences of her actions. Three years later, Faith busted out of prison to assist Angel Investigations in containing the recently released Angelus, subsequently returning to Sunnydale with Willow Rosenberg after Angel was re-ensouled to assist the Scoobies in their battle against the First Evil and its army; Faith was even appointed the leader of the Scoobies after they lost confidence in Buffy's leadership, only for Buffy to be accepted back as the leader when Faith's first plan led herself and several Potentials into a near-fatal trap.
After the First was defeated and all Potential Slayers were activated worldwide, Faith initially stationed herself with the new Slayer Organization's Cleveland squad, and then joining forces with Rupert Giles to prevent more Slayers from going rogue.
