Dawn Summers, age 20, is a Slayer's sister and the most powerful thing in the world -- The Key. Talk about having a lot on your plate... After protecting The Key for centuries, the Monks of The Order of Dagon were forced to hide it from Glory, a hell god, by turning it into a human girl. They placed Dawn with Buffy, disguised as a younger sister, and implanted memories in everyone in Buffy and Dawn's lives that made it seem as if Dawn had always been a part of Buffy's family. It is unclear how the implanted memories are activated or if people outside of the Summers' lives know about Dawn.
The insane and those "outside of reality," such as clairvoyants, are able to see that she is not real, and Buffy was able to identify her as part of a spell by going into a deep trance. Joyce seemed to recognize that Dawn was not truly her daughter at certain moments when she was being affected by her brain tumor. Dawn was initially unaware of her true nature, but learned the truth, much to her distress, when she broke into the Magic Box and read Giles' journal.
Glory's aim in this world was to find the Key because the Key could break down all the dimensional barriers, and Glory intended to use Dawn in a ritual to get back to her own dimension. This ritual would result in Dawn's death, and the unleashing of countless demon dimensions on earth.
Buffy wasn't able to stop Glory from starting the ritual, but by sacrificing her own life she was able to stop it in time to save Dawn and the world. Luckily for Dawn, Willow was able to bring Buffy back from the dead. Still, Dawn's life wasn't easy for her (being not quite real, having such a strange life, and with her sister being detached and distant after her resurrection), and she developed a thieving habit as a cry for attention.
This was eventually discovered, and Buffy has since improved her relationship with Dawn, who was attending high school at the newly built Sunny Dale High until and evil army started to form under the school and Buffy, the rest of the Scooby Gang, and the potential Slayers to blow it up (along with Sunny Dale High).
