Xander is a wise-cracking funny man. He has had the hots for Buffy since she came to Sunnydale. The one time he got up enough guts to ask her was when Buffy had too much other stuff on her mind to notice. Xander may not be one for action but he still helps. He has been best friends with Willow since they were kids. But she wants him for more than just a friend. Xander is quite the geek but he still goes out with the ever popular Cordelia Chase.
Nicholas Brendan has not been in much before Buffy, but he was in the horror sequel Children of the Corn III. He will be returning for Buffy's third season.
