Meanwhile Dawn have not been feeling well and the theory is that her body breaking apart. Since magic is gone because of the mystical "seed" being destroyed.

Since she was given shape by magic and one would imagine the transformation was maintained by magic. Vampires, demons, and Slayers were unaffected in the immediate sense by the breaking of the Seed because whatever magic sustains them comes from within. The nature of the magic that created and possibly sustains Dawn has never really been explored at all. We don't know if it requires magic to sustain but if it does like Koh's prison, that will fade. The memories constructed by the monks were also merely a veil. We saw that in "No Place Like Home." Those seem to be fading. I think it makes sense that if the magic that created those memories is fading/faded, the magic holding Dawn to her current form are probably diminishing too and the human shell the monks made is deteriorating. Hence, the illness.

Is... that a talking balloon? O.o

Make anyone else think of Shivering Jemmy of the Shallow Brigade?

That just seems impractical. What if the balloon pops?

It's one of the higher powered demonic figures in the Buffyverse, I think. I'm sure she showed up in Angel once too...

Though oddly, the personification of Chaos in Sandman also took the form of a six year old girl. Huh.

With a balloon, no less.

It always bugged me some how they didn't explore or I'm pretty sure even mention Dawn's nature after the Glory season. A being made of some pretty powerful mojo is suddenly your average (uh, in the Whedon sense) teenager?

Well, has suddenly always been so. Does make one wonder if Adam would have picked up on her origins if he'd been around, the way he did with Jonathan.

He must have done, since the retcon spell that inserted her into their lives tied her into the events of all the past seasons too :)

(The most annoying one of those was that it was apparently, and according to one comic, Dawn who gave Buffy resuscitation rather than Xander in the Season 1 finale, which seems to miss the point of the scene)

He did shrug off Jonathon's alterations IIRC. I bet he'd notice her.

IIRC, she wasn't magic in and of herself, she was formed by magic, but she WAS a flesh and blood teenager who was the outcome of a spell.

Huh, I was always under the impression that once they gave the Key form, she was human and totally human. But I guess it sort of makes sense that magic would also keep her together?

That's what I recall too.
