is a character from the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer
and was portrayed by late actor Luke Perry. Pike and his friend Benny don't run in the same circle as Buffy and her self-centered friends. When they encounter eachother in a movie theater and again at a bar restaurant, the hatred is mutual. However, this changes after Buffy discovers she is the slayer, chosen to kill vampires.
Soon Pike, who at first plans to run away, begins to help in the fight against vampires (with comedic views) and grows close to Buffy. While at first he is an outsider with no real direction or purpose, he finds himself in a battle to save humankind...
