Ex-Watcher, sacked to be precise about it, Wesley is officially in charge of Angel Investigations these days.


Wesley speaks little of his past, suffice to say it wasn't very pleasant. His father, Roger Wyndam-Pryce is a renowned Watcher and expected perfection. It is safe to surmise that Wesley worked hard to live up to his father's expectations. He made Head Boy at the Watcher's Academy, with great expense to how his classmates viewed him. Pompous, arrogant, by the book, this attitude persisted past graduation and when he got assigned to his first Slayer.

He was assigned two Slayers, Buffy Summers and Faith Lehane in Sunnydale California. Ill prepared for real combat situations and just proving himself inept, this assignment ultimately led to his sacking. There was a brief period following this failure where he turned rogue demon hunter. Dressing in leather, looking very silly and out of place, he wound up in Los Angeles at Angel Investigations.

Wesley proved to be a valuable asset to Angel and Cordelia with his extensive knowledge. Working with them gave him the real world experience he was lacking when he was initially a Watcher. After becoming a solid member of Angel Investigations, the Council approached Wesley, offering him his job back. He refused, helping Angel protect Faith.

When Angel is unable to lead the Investigations office, Wesley steps up to the plate. This time period was fairly complicated owing to several factors. Angel became plagued by Darla in his dreams, not knowing that she has been resurrected by Wolfram & Hart. Darla's resurrection as a human was entirely a ploy by W&H to turn Angel back into Angelus. Wolfram & Hart bring in Drusilla to turn Darla once more, they began a rampage and slaughterfest. This leads to a chain of events that causes Angel to give into his darker side. He fires Gunn, Wesley and Cordelia who start their own investigations business.

Their own business was a bit rocky at first, but soon thrived. Angel eventually came back, and begged for the trio's trust again. It was slow to be earned all over, particularly from Cordelia, yet they were working together once more. This time with Wesley at the helm of Angel Investigations. This time was a boost in the man's confidence, until his father ruins that, more focused on Wesley's failures than achievements.

One crisis down, for another to appear. This time Cordelia being sucked through a portal to Lorne's home dimension of Pylea. A rescue plan is devised, Wesley, Gunn and Angel go after her. In Pylea, Cordelia is thought to be a princess by the people, despite humans holding a slave status. The men also find one Fred Burkle, a woman in Cordy's vision that led up to landing in this dimension. Wesley finds a link between the priests of Pylea to Wolfram & Hart, and orchestrates a rebellion.. Leading to his figuring out a way home. With Cordelia and Fred in tow, they return to LA, but find bad news waiting for them.


When Wesley appeared in Sunnydale, he was pompous, arrogant, black, white and by the book. He also displayed a streak of ruthlessness when he was willing to have Willow die than give up an object that would have allowed the Mayor to complete his Ascension. This ruthlessness doesn't always come out, it's not always on the surface, but it's there. Depending on situation and opportunity. This ruthlessness is pragmatic and never out of malice. It's always because he thinks it's the right thing to do. This does get him accused of not having compassion, when he truly does.

That aside, Wesley is incredibly loyal to those who have earned his trust. He may have joined Angel Investigations much like a puppy eager to be liked and taken in, but he would die (and kill) for his friends and coworkers. He is not as cowardly as he once was, and finds himself on the fighting front.

His sacking, his experiences with Angel Investigations has brought about some personality changes in the man. Extremely intelligent, the man is practically a genius with his knowledge of demonkind, magic and the occult. He has bouts where there is a lack of confidence in his own abilities, thanks to his childhood and his father.



  • Angel - The Champion. Wes trusts Angel more than anyone, even more than the Council which he once held as something sacred.
  • Cordelia Chase - Emotions towards Cordy aren't as awkward as one might imagine, considering the rather sloppy kiss they shared that Wes tries hard to repress. She's a valued member of Angel Investigations, the heart of the team as Fred put it.
  • Faith Lehane - Along with Buffy, Faith was his first charge between Slayer and Watcher. This arrangement wound up in his sacking as it didn't work out well enough. Despite what became of Faith, he still found it in him to forgive and protect her, even after she tortured him.
  • Fred Burkle - The more this woman comes out of her shell, the more feelings are starting to grow for her. She's a genius and they have many similar interests.
  • Charles Gunn - Brutha from another mother. Word. Wes and Gun are virtual opposites, but as tight as friends and coworkers can be. Whatever in the world could get in the way of their friendship?
  • Lorne - The Host with the most. The man who reads auras and runs Caritas. Lorne's sanctuary demon bar is a valued location to go to for information. Not to mention that it's a pleasant atmosphere and Lorne is great company.


  • "We came, we sang, we.. (gag).. fought the urge to regurgitate…"
  • "I thought you'd like to know that we're keeping the agency open. With or without you. You may have turned your back on your mission, but we haven't. Someone has to fight the good fight."
  • Wesley (pretending to be Angel) "Blood. I don't usually… drink in front of humans." / Magnus Bryce: "Don't insult me. Go on. It's fresh." / Wesley (drinks the glass of blood) "Dear God! That's… nummy."
  • "Oh, no, no, no. Not the sun, for I'm a vampire! Oh, oh, oh, it burns! Oh, oh, oh."
  • "Someone put a stake through that woman's heart if she persists in popping her bloody chewing gum!"
  • "Why do people keep putting me in charge of things?"
  • "It's an ancient sacred text, not a Magic 8-Ball."
  • "You! Butcher an innocent girl, will you? I'm going to thrash you within an inch of your life. And then I'm gonna take that inch!!!"
  • "I've been accused of a great many things in my time but paranoid has never been one of them. Unless people have been saying it behind my back."
  • Angel: "Well, it's-it's just you know… the whole visibility issue. Not to mention the whole hat head thing, and you know when you really think about it … How come I have to wear the ladies' helmet?" / Wesley: "Stop being such a wanker and put it on. Looks good, hop on gorgeous." / Angel: "You'll pay for this."


  • Was Head Boy at the Watcher's Academy. (Then again, everyone knows this as he delights in delivering this information.)
  • Sacked as a Watcher following his failure to possess any qualities one should have.
  • Can be pragmatically ruthless.
