The Trio was a group formed by fellow geeks Warren Mears, Jonathan Levinson, and Andrew Wells who casually decided to team up as "supervillians" to take over Sunnydale while playing a board game. Though their plots largely centered around trying to neutralize Buffy Summers, who, being the Slayer, was the primary obstacle in the way of their ultimate goal. Former Sunnydale High schoolmates of Buffy, Warren was an expert in technology and robotics, while Jonathan was an apt sorcerer and Andrew a semi-accomplished demon summoner, in the tradition of his older brother Tucker. All three of them had been responsible for manufacturing a number of innovations that made use of combining both science and mysticism and as a result, they had been able to avoid detection from the Scoobies (who simply assumed the Trio's conducts were the doings of undocumented demons) for a while. The Trio begin as minor villains but they took a darker turn after their leader Warren accidentally killed his ex-girlfriend Katrina Silber. While Andrew and Jonathan did not possess the malice and hatred of true villains, Warren revealed his true colors as a violent misogynist, a capable murderer and psychopath. Jonathan began to desire to leave the group, while Andrew was infatuated with Warren and the idea of getting away with crimes.
Though they pulled off numerous crimes, they were continually thwarted by Buffy, and none of their actions made any name for themselves in Sunnydale's mystical underground. Eventually, when their scheme to pull off mass amounts of bank robberies was thwarted by Buffy, the group disbanded when Warren escaped, leaving Andrew and Jonathan to be arrested.
