There is a dichotomy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: sinner or saint. Several characters are able to bridge this: Spike and Buffy being two of the notable examples, playing both roles throughout the series.

Willow is only a vampire in two different episodes (“The Wish” and “Dӧppelgangland”), yet the transformation that she undertakes is startling.
Since she is a sadist, and “The close contriver of all harms” (III.v.7) involving the witches’ powers, it is odd that she never directly interacts with Macbeth. In fact, she conveniently leaves before he enters, and his behaviour in the scene would have enthralled her. The witches and Hecate are all supernatural forces in the play.

Williams Shakespeare’s plays are real eye openers when it comes to human nature which is why we read it today. Characters in Macbeth showed a lot of signs of change. Change happened to most of characters. After reading Macbeth you come to to the conclusion that there is no true hero and there is definitely not a true villain. Lady Macbeth at first was seen as a villain because of her actions, but her image as the villain began to fade away as the play progressed.
