Holland Manners

Holland Manners had a successful career as Head of Special Projects at Wolfram and Hart. He was head of the team that brought Darla back from the dead as human, and then brought Drusilla in to turn her back into a vampire. Unfortunately, in doing so he incurs the wrath of Angel whilst also playing with a large amount of fire. So when he becomes a victim of the very massacre he suggested to Darla and Drusilla, Angel not only fails to save him, but locks the lawyer and his friends into a room with the hungry vamps and leaves them to their fate. The contract with Wolfram and Hart going beyond mortal death, he does return to twist the knife further into the despondent Angel’s back, but only serves to lead him down the road to epiphany.

Rebecca Lowell

Rebecca Lowell rose to fame playing Raven in the soap opera On Your Own. However, when the soap is cancelled, Rebecca finds herself unemployed with her youth fading fast. In a desperate bid to get some media attention, her agent, Oliver Simon arranges for her to meet with a series of non-fatal accidents. His plans are foiled when a passing Angel rescues her from a car accident and she hires him as her bodyguard.

When Angel rescues Rebecca from another apparent attempt on her life, she clocks his non-reflection and he is soon fessing up to his vampire status. Taking the fact that vampires are real in her stride, Rebecca soon hits on the idea of becoming one as a way to retain her youth and beauty. After pumping Cordelia for information, Rebeca arrives at Angel’s apartment complete with bottle of champagne and a crafty plan. Having spiked Angel’s drink with a happy pill, Rebecca soon finds out what a vampire is really like when she meets Angelus.

Lilah Morgan

Lilah Morgan, attorney at law with Wolfram and Hart is 100% dedicated to the firm, it’s evil ways and working her way up the corporate ladder. Being a woman, she’s always found that she’s had to work that little bit extra hard and has now found that she cannot tell the difference between her ‘game’ face and her real one.

Working alongside, Lindsey McDonald, she first tries to get Angel on side, when that doesn’t work, she brings in rogue vampire slayer Faith to kill him, when even that doesn’t work she helps bring back Darla to torture him and turn him dark. Lilah’s relationship with Angel is a mixed one of fear and attraction, and though she would probably kill him given the chance, she knows the Senior Partners want him alive and so plays the game.

Lilah and Lindsey McDonald share an unhealthy rivalry and, when they find themselves the only survivors of Darla and Drusilla’s massacre she is both pleased and pained that they get to share the role of actin head of Special Projects. Fortunately for Lilah, Lindsey McDonald decides to leave, but she soon finds she has another rival in the shape of Gavin Park.

Never one to miss an opportunity, Lilah steps in to befriend Wesley after he has betrayed his friends and they have deserted him. Although her efforts to lure him to the dark side fail, she does find herself in a relationship with him that comes to mean more to both of them than they are ever likely to admit.

Lilah’s hard work pays off when she finds that the Senior Partners have little faith in her immediate boss, Linwood Morrow and, once she has decapitated him, she finds herself filling his shoes quite nicely.

Her relationship with Wesley, however, isn’t going so well, as once he finds himself back in the company of friends (and Fred) he ends the relationship. Although she once again survives a Wolfram and Hart massacre, this time at the hands of The Beast, she finds herself stabbed in the neck by Cordelia who has been taken over by a higher power. To add insult to injury, she is then beheaded by Wesley who believes she has been murdered by the escaped Angelus.

Her contract with Wolfram and Hart, however, extended beyond death, and her last known job for the firm is to return to offer Angel Investigations full control of the fully refurbished L.A. branch of Wolfram and Hart.

Kate Lockley

Losing her mother at an early age, Kate desperately tried to gain her distant father’s love and approval. To this end she joins the police and becomes a detective, following in her father;s footsteps. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Angel, while undercover at a singles bar. She hits on him and he soon becomes her prime suspect in a murder investigation. Of course, he proves his innocence and the two begin a friendship that may have lead to more had she not discovered that he was a vampire. Not believing her eyes, she studies the facts and learns all their is to know about Angelus. Matters become worse when, under the influence of a magic talking stick, she becomes over sentimental at her father’s retirement party, alienating him further.

They have a brief reconciliation before she discovers that he is working in the seedy underworld, trafficking demon drugs to boost his pension. When Angel is unable to prevent her father from being murdered by the vampires he is working for, she blames Angel for her father’s death.

Having been introduced to the demon underworld of L.A., Kate becomes obsessed with it, turning up at any supernatural looking job and gains the reputation of being a bit of a ‘Scully’, no matter how many times she explains that ‘Scully is the sceptic’.

Gradually she begins to regain her trust in Angel and even helps him out a couple of times. When she has to arrest him for breaking in the Wolfram and Hart building, she lets him go believing that he is the only one who can stop Darla and Drusilla on their rampage. She loses her job when Angel not only fails to stop them but leaves them to massacre the Wolfram and Hart lawyers.

Having lost everything of value, Kate hits the bottle and the pills and, leaving Angel a message on his ansaphone, she prepares to die. Luckily for her, Angel comes to his senses in time to save her. Believing that his being able to get into her apartment without an invitation is divine intervention, Kate has an epiphany of her own and heads off to start a new life.
