I think this is actually a really complicated question because in some ways different people know different sides to characters better than other people do. Buffy is a great example. Yes her and Spike are very close, but she opens a side of herself up to Willow that is very specific to them and their friendship. She has a very specific connection/dynamic with Dawn too (and did have also with Joyce). They know her in a different way as family who have know her all her life. But then Faith will understand a side to her that none of the others probably can as intuitively. Overall, by S11, it's probably Willow and Spike, but it feels wrong to dismiss the others and how deeply they know her.

Some of them feel pretty negative too. I feel sorry for William if everyone is right and his murderer who used her preternatural ability to see into what he wanted in order to manipulate him at his weakest by feigning to offer him his heart's desire is truly deemed who 'knew him best'. I'd like to think his mother at the least knew him better, more completely, after loving and caring for him his whole life.

Parents quite often will have a level of insight into the characters that it takes some time for their friendships/romantic partners to outstrip. Even then, it's a very unique dynamic because of the length of the relationship. Harmony for example, who seems to have very shallow relationships, was possibly better known by her parents. But if we are limited to selecting people from the show, then I'd hope for her it was one of her friends, like Cordelia, rather than an ex who didn't really care about her and certainly didn't respect her.

Gah, I'm so often rubbish in these kinds of threads. :twak:

No, I agree, although I am also interested in the consistency of character over a long period of time.

Take Angel and Angelus - as he is eventually split. The fact is that they are essentially one being. Angel is an Angelus who cares about what he does, how he is perceived, and how to interact without biting. He uses the strengths of Angelus to succeed as Angel. Because of that I would say that Darla, Dru, and Spike know Angel far better than Wesley or Cordy who have known him for 3 years. They know his basic nature - just like they know each other. Angel(us) need to be the top dog, in charge, telling others what they have to do to get Angel's plan accomplished.

The same goes for the entire Fanged Four.
