Alexander Lavelle "Xander" Harris is a major character in the Buffyverse appearing as the teteragonist of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In which he appeared as the tritagonist of season one, the teteragonist of seasons two, three, four, five and seven and the deuteragonist of season six.

He was a close friend of Slayer Buffy Summers and a founding member of the Scooby Gang. Being the only one of his group of friends to not possess any supernatural abilities, Xander was usually the one who saw everything beyond the supernatural. Besides this, Xander was known to be very humorous and sarcastic, especially in the face of danger.


Xander is often seen making jokes and wanting to be in the action even though he is one of the weakest of the main cast. Xander is very childish and is labelled as an outsider. Part of his reasoning for trying to be part of the actions seems to come from his insecurity and fears of being seen as a failure and loser in the eyes of his peers.

Xander is also shown to be protective of his friends and can overreact in situations that involve them being hurt in some form. Ultimately he does show courage when needed and always speaks his mind even when not always the brightest move.

He usually swallows his pride and is very forgiving. He always apologizes. Xander is easy to work with and is very loyal to the team.
