Vampire of the Week

I know, I know, I haven't done a Vampire of the Week post in ages! But, after weeks of waiting it's finally time again. And which vampire is better to kick off the re-launch of VoW than:

Drusilla!

Drusilla is known from both Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel. "Dru" grew up in London, England with her parents and two sisters. For her whole life, Dru had been able to foretelling the future, along with other physic abilities. She didn't see her talents as a gift though, no she believed it to be an evil affliction, and therefor entered a nunnery to cleanse herself.
In 1860, Angel, who by the time still was Angelus, met Drusilla. He sensed her purity and her potential for sainthood, and became obsessed with destroying her. He tortured and killed Drusilla's entire family, along with everyone else she was close to. And he made Drusilla watch him do it, then he turned her. No wonder she turned insane. . .



As a vampire Drusilla still has her foretelling abilities, along with the ability of being able to hypnotize people. Her temper changes from one minute to the next. When she's happy she is laughing and dancing, and singing to herself. She loves to torture and kill humans, and to watch other people do it.



Why does Drusilla deserve to be the Vampire of the Week?
Well, she is such a great character! She's mad, funny and talks the funniest way. She is also an incredible quote machine! Take a look at some of her best sayings:


To her doll: "Miss Edith speaks out of turn. She's a bad example and will have no cakes today."

"The King of Cups expects a picnic. But it's not his birthday."

"It's not nice to change a game mid-play, Spike. You've taken my chair and the music hasn't stopped."

"Didn't like the barkeeper. Mm...can't get his eyes off my fingers."

"Run and Catch. Run and catch. The lamb is caught in the blackberry patch.



Drusilla is played by Juliet Landau.
