Last night I dreamed of Tera from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". I've been watching too much of Buffy series 6 recently.

My point is that I've been finding the Tera character increasingly attractive. She hasn't really changed appearance since she first joined the program, so that's not a factor. I wonder what the cause is: is it that despite still being a relatively minor character, she is also emerging as an increasingly strong character, while the rest of them are more and more falling apart? Is it that she is taking on more of a parental role to Dawn? Or is it simply that while most of the characters (With the exception of Xander) are acting like children, Tera appears to be the most mature?
