Harmony Kendall was ostensibly Cordelia's best friend throughout high school - although perhaps "second in command" would be a more appropriate label for their relationship. Harmony was the archetypal bimbo: blonde, pretty, empty-headed, and only caring about her appearance and her dating status. She was too flaky for even Devon (a man who once declared that he didn't mind if his dates couldn't talk), and apparently often lied about having boyfriends. She always looked down on the Scooby Gang, and Cordy's close relationship with them. All this changed however, come graduation day. In order to stop the Mayor from devouring the entire class of 1999, the Scooby Gang enlisted the help of most of their fellow pupils, including Harmony. Perhaps the only brave act Harmony had ever done cost her dearly, as she was attacked and killed by a vampire henchman of the Mayor's. It was revealed in season 4 that Harmony had in fact been turned into a vampire, rather than simply left to die. She reappeared in Sunnydale dating Spike, whom she claimed to love. Spike, however, having neither love for anyone other than Dru, nor patience for Harmony's bimbo behavior, soon grew tired of her, and attempted to kill her. Although she survived - thanks to the Gem of Amarra - Spike abandoned her, returning only when, neutered by the Initiative, he desperately needed help and food. Harmony had at last had enough of his abuse by then, and turned him away; she then burnt his possessions. She returned in season 5, this time with a small and inept group of vampire followers and delusions of grandeur. After her gang turned on her and Buffy slaughtered most of them, Harmony fled back to Spike, asking him to keep her safe. Spike kept her around for sex for a while, before once again tiring of her and throwing her out. She is, presumably, still undead and at large.
