Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow Rosenberg
After Willow’s (Alyson Hannigan) werewolf boyfriend, Oz (Seth Green), leaves town, she joins her college’s Wicca group, where she meets shy Tara (Amber Benson), and the two fall in love as they practice magic together. Although Tara is also a witch, Willow often needs to protect her. Sadly, she isn’t able to prevent Tara’s death at the end of the sixth season. Buffy fans, who were originally slow to warm up to the pairing, were outraged.
