―Willow Rosenberg[src]

Willow Danielle Rosenberg was a vampire and the alternate timeline counterpart of Willow. Member of the Order of Aurelius, she was one of the leading acolytes of the Master, alongside her lover Xander Harris.

Biography

When Cordelia Chase wished to Anya Jenkins that Buffy Summers had never moved to Sunnydale, the vengeance demon transported her to a reality in which the absence of the Slayer had allowed the town to be dominated by vampires. Willow, accompanied by Xander, encountered Cordelia alone in the streets, oblivious to their identity as vampires. They attempted to bite her, who was saved by the White Hats at the last minute.

Willow and Xander went to The Bronze, where she feeds off from a girl. Xander reveals to the Master that Cordelia had mentioned summoning the Slayer, so he orders the two to kill her. At the library, Willow and Xander trapped Rupert Giles, and drained Cordelia of her blood. Concluding their mission, the Master allowed Willow to play with her "puppy", which consisted of torturing Angel, the traitor vampire with a soul, with Xander watching them.

Later, while the Master inaugurates his plan to mass produce human blood for vampire consumption, Buffy Summers and the White Hats arrived at the factory, beginning a Battle at the Blood Plant.[2] Willow had been momentarily saved from death, when Anya and Willow from the main timeline attempted to perform a temporal fold to retrieve the Symbol of Anyanka. Though, a interruption of the spell pulled the vampire Willow into their reality instead.

In the mainstream Sunnydale, the vampire Willow was shocked to see the humans roaming freely at night. She had an altercation with Percy West in the Bronze, which had the good side-effect of making him respect the real Willow. Following this, she exposed her vamp face to Xander and Buffy, causing them to believe their Willow was now undead. Disappointed with this reality, Willow found herself wandering through the streets until she was found by a group of vampire assassins sent by Mayor Wilkins. After subduing them all, and making them her minions through intimidation of the leader Alphonse, she proceeded to try to make the world better. They starting with taking over The Bronze, takings the patrons as hostages, where she sired Sandy.

At the club, Anya recognized the vampire Willow, and convinced her that she could help her get back to her world but first they needed this world's Willow to perform the spell. The vampire tried to kidnap her human counterpart at the Sunnydale High library, but was subdued with a tranquilizer gun. Switching clothes with her vampire counterpart, the human Willow helped the Scooby Gang retake the Bronze.

Vamp Willow was returned to her world by Anya, Rupert Giles, and Willow, though she was returned to the exact moment she was taken. Grabbed by the Wishverse versions of Oz and Larry Blaisdell, she was pushed into a broken wooden board. She started to say "Oh, fu–", and turned to dust.[3]

Powers and Abilities

Vamp Willow possessed all the regular powers and weaknesses of a common vampire. She was also a formidable fighter, capable of defeating a pack of vampires by herself.[3]

Relationships

  • Willow Rosenberg — Vampire Willow expressed an attraction for her human self from the main universe. Willow found this somewhat disturbing, asking, "Would that mean we have to snuggle?" However, in a fight with her, she stated she would rather snuggle than fight. Willow had also stopped Buffy from staking her alter ego, taking pity on her. So instead, they decided to send Vampire Willow to her own world only to get staked once there.[3]
