Brief Character History

Austin Buchanan came to Llanview in 1989. He was Asa's nephew. He soon became obsessed with Sarah Gordon. Bo was currently married to Sarah and Austin thought he was going to steal Sarah from Bo. Austin knew that Bo and Michael Grande were enemies, so Austin rigged the brakes on Michael's car not to work. But instead of Michael being killed, his wife Alicia and their baby died and Gabrielle Medina was injured. Austin framed Bo for the accident. Austin eventually confessed to Sarah what he had done and wanted Sarah to make love to him. She hated him, she was only pretending to like him so she could get his confession, and didn't want to, but that made Austin mad and Austin raped Sarah. After the rape was over, Sarah got a gun and shot Austin. For protection of Sarah, Cord and Asa buried Austin's body. To their surprise, the evil Buchanan was not dead after all. He crawled out of his grave and wanted revenge on Sarah! He held Viki Buchanan and Megan Gordon hostage. Not long after, though, Clint found them. He shot Austin. After the shot, Austin fell through a high-rise window. Right before he fell, he shot Viki, but she was only wounded. This time Austin was dead for good.
