Synopsis

Angelus, one of the most gruesome vampires ever, terrified the world for over two centuries.

Until he killed the wrong girl and her gypsy family cursed him, forcing the return of his soul and tormenting him with the guilt of all the innocent people he has killed.

He now goes by the name of Angel and fights to help the helpless and protect them from the dark forces.

Angel lived in Sunnydale for three years with his girlfriend, Buffy, fighting vampires, but he's left the suburbs behind to move to Los Angeles, where he continues the fight against evil.

With old and new friends he takes on vampires, demons, lawyers and many other dark forces that seem to find their way to L.A.

His tormented angst and brooding intensity make him a hero to be reckoned with, as he strives to free his soul from the torment he has inflicted and to find redemption.
