So next up on our Buffyverse Train is Tales of the Slayer: The Innocent. This story takes place during the French Revolution. The slayer fights side by side with her love who sends her after Vampires that he finds throughout the city.
He sends her after a vampire aristocratic. She does her duty and kills the vampire, only plot twist, he isn't a vampire. He is just an aristocratic and she killed him right in front of his family.
She figures out what happens almost at once, I can't imagine how traumatizing that must have been for her. The man she loved, the man she worked with sent her on a fools errand. He turned her noble quest into something dark and dirty. He made her a murderer and she doesn't know how to live with that. It is something that Faith will go through in the 3rd season of the show.
This is the first story in the Buffyverse, timeline wise, that isn't written by Joss Whedon. It was instead written by Amber Benson. If that name sounds like one you have heard before it might be because she played Tara on the show.
