Faith/Angel is the pairing of Buffyverse characters Faith and Angel.


Faith joined BtVS in season 3, and went on to become one of the season's antagonists. In season 4, Faith runs away to L.A. and is hired by Wolfram & Hart to assassinate Angel. Instead she tried to get him to kill her as she feels guilt for her actions. Angel helps Faith begin her redemption. Faith hands herself over to the authorities and is imprisoned for her crimes.

In season four of Angel, Faith breaks out of prison when she discovers that Angel has lost his soul. Faith takes a dangerous drug in order to incapacitate Angelus, when she allows him to drink her blood. The drug and the spell that followed allowed Faith and Angel to share a vision as she was dying from the drug. He convinced her to keep fighting as her life is worth living.
