In Season 7 Ep 12, Dawn is believed to be a Potential. Through the episodes storyline we are given a chance to view Dawn’s reaction to this news and how the other characters react to it. It’s revealed that Dawn wasn’t a Potential, but what if she were. How would the series go if Dawn followed her sister footsteps? Dawn has shown times of standing up for the scoobies, and participating in action. Example: Fighting with Buffy in the S6 finale, and holding her own against the vampire in the school in S7. My Ideal Dawn, as a trained Slayer, would be a swords-woman. That weapon fits her best. Also due to her interest in research, she could have taken a cue from Willow’s computer hacking days. She also could take wisdom from Xander. As they both were normal mortals who stood up against great adversity. Having a balance of Buffy’s heritage, Willow’s Smarts, and Xander’s bravery could make for a much stronger character. Had Dawn Become a Potienal Slayer, what ways could make her a better overall character and aid to the Scooby Dynamic?
