Chris Boal was a former Sunnydale High student who tried to seduce Darla, not knowing her true nature. He was surprised and drained by the innocuous-looking vampire when he broke into the school with her. Chris' body then was dumped inside Aura's locker in the girls' changing room. Giles thought Chris would come back to life as a vampire but he didn't.
