Through the wonder of computer technology, I'm joined once again by special guest, Stuart Duncan. In Buffy's sixth episode from Season One, The Pack, Xander is possessed by a Hyena at the Sunnydale zoo. Hyenas are dog-like, nocturnal mammals mainly found in Africa and southern Asia. They are carnivorous scavengers feeding chiefly on carrion, with powerful jaws, relatively short hind limbs and coarse hair. They are famously known for their distinct bark, which often sounds like laughter. So, basically, Xander is the same as he ever was.
