Are there any Watchers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer that aren’t English? Weren’t the first Slayers created in Africa? Shouldn’t there be Watchers from all over the world, not just Great Britain?
Faith in Willow
There were Watchers from many countries and cultures but both Rupert Giles and Wesley Wyndham Pryce were sent to Buffy from the Watchers Council of Britain. The Council was founded by the Shadow Men who created the Slayers in ancient Africa but at some point they had to have migrated and being in Great Britain they adopted the language and apparently also a lot of native Britains into the organization. Buffy’s first Watcher was an American (Merrick), Andrew Wells who was part of the Trio that plagued Buffy and the Scoobies for a season later trained to become a Watcher and was very much an American, Roger “Sam” Zabuto who was Kendra’s Watcher was from Jamaica.
