Buffy Anne Summers was a Slayer activated in the late 20th century. Born on January 19 , ,   she was called to be the Slayer in at the age of fifteen. Initially a reluctant hero who constantly wished for nothing more than a normal life,  Buffy eventually grew to embrace her destiny. Buffy was one of the longest-lived Slayers and returned from death not once,  but twice,  then coexisting with the two next Slayers,   an act that disrupted the magic surrounding the traditional line. After rejecting her prophesized place in the dimension of Twilight , Buffy prevented it from replacing and destroying the Earth when she brought about the end of magic. In childhood, she was close friends with her cousin Celia , and enjoyed playing Power Girl with her. When she was eight, she witnessed Celia's murder in her hospital bed by Der Kindestod , a demon that killed sick children and who was only visible to those who were ill.
The Buffyverse or Slayerverse  is a media franchise created by Joss Whedon. The term also refers to the shared fictional universe in which the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are set. This term, originally coined by fans of the TV series, has since been used in the titles of published works,  and adopted by Joss Whedon , the creator of the fictional universe.
The Buffyverse canon consists of materials that are thought to be genuine or "official" and those events, characters, settings, etc. The Buffyverse is expanded through other additional materials such as comics, novels, pilots, promos and video games which do not necessarily take place in exactly the same fictional continuity as the Buffy episodes and Angel episodes. Star Trek , Star Wars , Stargate and other prolific sci-fi and fantasy franchises have similarly gathered complex fictional continuities through hundreds of stories told in different formats. Using the religious analogy of a canon of scripture see Biblical canon , things that are not canon are considered " apocryphal. This is the case with " Buffyverse canon", which has yet to be publicly defined by an authority to the satisfaction and consensus of all observers see: links to canon debates. The creator of the Buffyverse, Joss Whedon , has implied that additional materials he was not heavily involved in creating were separate from canon. Canon is key, as is continuity. If you are massive nerd. Which I am. I believe there's a demarcation between the creation and ancillary creations by different people.
