Characters: Giles, Giles' dad




"What does the slayerless watcher watch?"

Edmund Giles put down his mundane report and regarded his young son warily. Since informing him of his destiny, the boy was alarmingly inquisitive. "I mean, if there are all these watchers, and only one Chosen girl, then what do all the watchers do with their time? Shouldn't there be more slayers? Give the unemployed watchers something to do."

"They are hardly unemployed, Rupert."

"But what do they do?"

"They travel, they collate research, they consolidate intelligence."

"Like spies?" the boy asked, excitement in his eyes.

"Yes, just like spies. That's correct," he lied.
