"All mighty Avilas... please accept our sacrifice. Please appear before us, oh mighty soldier of the dark. Please appear before us, and grant us with infinite riches, and we will pay you with our sacrifice. We kneel before you with the gift of flesh."
The Invocation of Avilas was performed by a group of Sunnydale High students led by Peter Nicols. This summoning ritual called forth the demonAvilas and required the participants to wear special red robes, hold candles to be extinguished before the ritual, a circle made of amulet coins, and a sacrifice of flesh. The demon, however, appeared without the sacrifice being killed. This could mean that the purpose of the sacrifice was to exchange for the wealth the demon granted.
