- “I am vengeance. I am my people's cry. They call for Hus, for the avenging spirit, to carve out justice.”
Hus was a Native American spirit warrior of the Chumash tribe which returned to exact vengeance against those who wronged his people.
His spirit was somehow bound within an old Sunnydale Mission which was buried by a huge earthquake in 1812. Everyone assumed the mission had been leveled by the earthquake, and the town unknowingly built over it.
Hus was able to corporealize at will; turning from a green mist into his human. He was also able to assume animal forms, particularly a flock of crows, a coyote and a black bear.
His victims were Professor Gerhardt and Father Gabriel, while he infected Xander Harris with syphilis. Afterward, he went after Buffy Summers, whose strength, due to Hus' warrior mentality, marked her as a figure of authority. Hus battled Buffy and her friends in the form of a black bear and was killed again when Buffy stabbed him in the neck with his own knife, which seemed to destroy him and his followers.
