The Trio, also known as Andrew Wells, Jonathan Levinson, and Warren Mears teamed up to take over Sunnydale. The Trio–as they became known–came together to create shrink rays, invisibility ray, prototype jet packs, and chicks chicks chicks. Iksnay on the urdervey (I may have this spelled entirely wrong, but originally Jonathan and Andrew are against killing Buffy). None are Jedi masters, but they do have certain abilities, like summoning demons and flying monkeys, creating an anatomically correct Buffy robot, and augment reality. Alone they may have gone unnoticed, but together they rob banks, and used the cerebral dampener to control minds.

Warren, after losing his marbles and killing his girlfriend goes after Buffy. It’s here where the story takes a drastic turn, bring out dark and scary Willow. We all know how Willow exacted revenge. In fact, it’s the most memorable episode for me. Skinning Warren alive in her pain, this is where Willow totally loses herself to the magic. Without the intervention of Buffy and the rest of the gang, Andrew and Jonathan would have met the same fate.
While hiding in Mexico, Andrew and Jonathan dream of the Seal of Danzalthar. The First takes the form of Warren, stirring up the sacrificial waters by convincing Andrew to open the Seal of Danzalthar–located beneath the floor of the new high school–by using Jonathan as sacrifice.

I have to say, this is when I totally After tying him to a chair, Xander and Anya play good cop/bad cop. As the generations of slayers begin to arrive, Andrew becomes a story teller. I love when he pretends he’s creating an actual show and says:
- “Oh, hello, there, gentle viewers. You caught me catching up on an old favorite. It’s wonderful to get lost in a story, isn’t it? Adventure and heroics and discovery—don’t they just take you away? Come with me now, if you will, gentle viewers. Join me on a new voyage of the mind. A little tale I like to call: Buffy, Slayer of the Vampyrs.“

The Trio was a huge part of the Buffy saga. Their geeky evil caused Buffy and the Scoobies quite a lot of angst, but in the end Andrew is the only Trio survivor. In fact, Anya dies protecting him in the last episode. Andrew’s character goes on to become a Watcher and has a cameo in the show ANGEL.
