This month I'm participating in A to Z Challenge, where 100's of bloggers around the world challenge themselves to write every day for the month of April, working their way through the alphabet. I'm stitching the Buffy The Vampire Slayer alphabet cross stitch pattern (available from my Etsy store). Each day I will share that letter's stitching, as well as a bit about the relevant character.
U is for Charles Gunn (there's a U in his name. I know, it's a real stretch)
Charles Gunn was born in Los Angeles. In his teenage years, Gunn rose through the ranks of a local gang to become their leader. This gang was familiar with the world of vampires, and protected their turf from the undead. Gunn witnessed Angel fighting and, recognising he was a vampire, attempted to dust him. Gunn eventually joined forces with Angel, becoming a full-time employee of Angel Investigations, both as a fighter, and as the guru of local knowledge.
Once again, Gunn is a character who only ever appeared on Angel and so my memory of him is rather vague. He was a street fighter and leader in his own right, which gave him the ground and strength to stand up to Angel when needed, as well as to fight the forces of evil. I remember liking Gunn, but not as much as the characters I was more familiar with from Buffy. I'd like to hear your opinions of him though!
