Faith Lehane is a fictional character featured in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise. Played by actress Eliza Dushku, she was introduced in the third episode of season three of Buffy the Vampire Slayer entitled "Faith, Hope & Trick". She made fifteen appearances in the series in total and also appeared on Buffy' s spin-off series Angel, where she made a total of six appearances. Faith was initially introduced as a supporting character and replacement slayer to Buffy Summers, but through the course of season three, she evolved into a more antagonistic role as her character fell under the sway of the evil Mayor of Sunnydale, Richard Wilkins III. The character was eventually redeemed, owing largely to the efforts of vampire Angel and returned to Sunnydale for the season seven series finale of Buffy.

Faith was a Slayer, and thus had the usual powers of such, including a healing factor and superhuman strength, speed, durability and reflexes. Due to their similar powers, Buffy and Faith were shown to be evenly matched in their various brawls during season three, until Buffy bested her in "Graduation Day (Part 1)".

Faith also appeared in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic book series where she was presented as the apprentice to Buffy's former watcher, Rupert Giles.
