5 - The Council of Watchers

These English guys are the most uptight and stodgy around. "By the book" is their mantra. Leader Quentin Travers looks down on Buffy's unconventional methods, even if she wins in the end. To him and the rest of the Council, tradition is all that matters. No room for creativity.

If you get the Council in a reading, you may be tangled in bureaucratic red tape or trapped in convention. Do like Buffy and cut your way out. Refuse to play that game. Learn to govern yourself with integrity and honor, not just by tradition for the sake of tradition. And tell off a Watcher any chance you get (not Giles, though... or that cute, bespectacled girl who did her dissertation on Spike.)
