    Source material Citation #1

    "Buffy, a small, delicate-looking blonde of superhuman strength, relies on Giles not only for adult support and coaching, but also for the research necessary to do that for which the Vampire Slayer has been chosen. In the third season, Giles was officially relieved of his Watcher duties, but he ignores that and continues as Buffy's trainer, confidant, and father-figure" (DeCandido:45).

     

    Buffy, a tiny, fragile-looking blonde of unusual strength, relies on Giles not only for grown-up encouragement and training, but also for the research help she needs to do her Vampire slayer job. In the third season, Giles was officially relieved from his watcher duties, but he ignores that and continues as Buffy's trainer, confidant, and father-figure (DeCandido:45).

    To help her fulfill her Slayer duties, Buffy can always rely on Giles (DeCandido:45).

    "In the third season, Giles was officially relieved of his Watcher duties, but he ignores that and continues as Buffy's trainer, confidant, and father-figure" (DeCandido:45).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

    Despite his termination by the Watcher's Council in season three, Giles persists in teaching and counseling Buffy while playing a supportive role (DeCandido:45).
