"Seven years… Working with the Slayer. Seeing my friends get more and more powerful… All of them. And I'm the guy who fixes the windows. They'll never know how tough it is, Dawnie. To be the one who isn't chosen, to live so near to the spotlight and never step in it. But I know. I see more than anybody realizes because nobody's watching me."
Xander Harris reflects on his friendship with the Slayer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Alexander (Xander) Harris was a fictional character on the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (from 1997 to 2003) who was played by American actor and writer Nicholas Brendon. Xander was a founding member of the Scooby Gang and the best friend of vampire slayer Buffy Summers. Xander was invented to be the 'Everyman' of the show and the comic relief. Xander is a very human, flawed character, who struggles with immaturity and makes a lot of mistakes, but he is also very brave, loyal and selfless and will do anything to help his friends. What I like about Xander is that as his friends become powerful witches, slayers and werewolves, he remains an average, ordinary person. Xander never lets his lack of super powers stop him from doing good, from fighting vampires to just being there to support his friends. Here are 10 episodes either all about Xander or featuring some great Xander scenes.
