- "You're the chaff, unblessed. I'll suck the blood from your hearts, he says I may!"
- ―Andrew Borba[src]
Andrew Borba was a suspected murderer located in Sunnydale.
While on a bus, he and the other passengers were attacked by the members of the Order of Aurelius and was then sired into a vampire. It was believed that he was the Anointed One, prompting the Scooby Gang to search for him at the morgue. After he rose, he attacked Owen Thurman. Owen's date Buffy Summers, a slayer, believed Borba had killed him, enraging her so much that she pushed him into a cremation chamber where he was incinerated. He eventually turned out to be a decoy.
As a human, Borba was a God-fearing, religious zealot who would preach about Judgement Day as he believed it would happen. Upon rising as a vampire, he believed it was his judgement. However, when a cross was used against him, invoking his natural fear, he became confused.
The shooting script attributes Borba's tattoos to prison work and he was wanted for questioning in a double homicide. While it was never confirmed he was guilty of said murders, if Guilty Andrew Borba became one of the few vampires to have killed more people as a human than as a vampire, Buffy slayed him before he killed anyone as a vampire.
While human, his string of murders was attributed to a psychosis. It is unknown if this was merely a term used by the press or part of the actual diagnosis. Moreover, it was fully possible that mental health care professionals may have come to such a possible diagnosis by misinterpreting factual information about supernatural events for delusions.
