- "Los Angeles. You see it at night and it shines. Like a beacon. People are drawn to it. People and other things. They come for all sorts of reasons. My reason? No surprise there. It started with a girl."
Los Angeles, known as "L.A." or the "City of Angels", was the most populous city in the state of California. It was the birthplace of Buffy Summers, where Robin Wood was raised after Spike killed his mother, and the base of operations of Angel Investigations. A branch of the multidimensional firm known as Wolfram & Hart is located in this city. It was sent to Hell by the Senior Partners as retribution for Angel's betrayal in the events of Not Fade Away. The city was eventually returned back to Earth.
