Harmony was one of Cordelia’s ditzy best friends throughout high school, although she was more like Cordy’s second in command. Harmony was pretty much the stereotypical blonde – she was pretty, stupid, shallow and only cared about her dating status and her clothes.
Harmony always looked down on the Scooby Gang and Cordelia’s close relationship with them. She constantly mocked and teased the entire group – she was a bitch. This changed on graduation day though, in order to stop the Mayor from devouring the entire class of 1999, the Scooby Gang enlisted the help of most of their classmates, including Harmony. This resulted in Harmony’s death – she was killed by a vampire henchman of the Mayor’s.
In season 4 it was revealed that Harmony didn’t just die like everyone thought, she had in fact been turned into a vampire. She reappeared in Sunnydale dating Spike (aka Blondy Bear), whom she said she loved. Spike, however, didn‘t have any love or patience for Harmony’s ditzy behavior and he soon grew tired of her, and even attempted to kill her. She survived though (thanks to the Gem of Amarra) and Spike left her, returning only after the Initiative neutered him since he desperately needed help and food. But Harmony had wised up and had enough of his abuse by then, so she turned him away… and then burnt his possessions.
Harmony came back to Sunnydale in season 5, this time with a small and idiotic group of vampire followers and delusions of grandeur. She tried real hard to be badass, but instead came off as a big joke. After her minions turned on her and Buffy staked most of them, Harmony ran back to Spike, asking him to keep her safe. Spike ending up keeping her around for sex for a while, before once again tiring of her and throwing her out.
The next time we see Harmony she is in L.A. with Angel at Wolfram & Hart, and that’s where she becomes an awesome (and much hotter) character.
