I was thinking about the Lieutenant in RVB and, in my mind. I just see them as their Captain’s siblings.
Like not blood siblings but, people who they see as brothers and sister.
Simmons thinks of Jensen as the little sister he never had. He would teach her more smart stuff and they would get along amazingly. He’ll try and protect her from the assholes who keep telling her she isn’t as hot as Vollyball, and they have to get Grif and Bitters to stop it.
Palomo is just that annoying ass little sibling Tucker wants no part of but, he’s committed to try and teach him the ways of wooing the ladies (looking at you Jensen) and making him the second best lady killer in Chorus.
Bitters is that little sibling who you want to deny is just like you, but it’s really obvious. They’re both somewhat lazy, they both got a smart mouth and they both love eating, but Bitters isn’t as obsessive eating like Grif.
Smith is Caboose’s big brother.
He’s that big brother who is super strong, like Captain America looking and protects Caboose as if he’s the president and will do everything Caboose wants, even if it means coloring in kid books.
