Kaylee (The ultimate Whedon meme - female character 2/12) It is very unusual to have a sweet kind girl in a crew of outlaws I guess, and Kaylee is really unusual about everything (I totally understand how Simon can be so lost sometimes). She is kind and nice, but totally is into doing illegal and dangerous stuff. She is a romantic but she is also a very sensual character (her positive sexuality is really awesome to watch, she basically meets Mal while screwing his mechanic and she basically steals the job). Kaylee is the heart of the crew, no wonder why she also is the one that almost dies in the pilot (thank you whedon for not really killing her !). Kaylee’s got great interactions with everybody and she is very funny, clever and sweet. She also is not afraid to tell the hard truth (she is the one who calls Mal on his Inara-related bullshit). She is always very supportive of her friends (“have good sex !” to Inara when she goes to work), and like Mal said, nobody can make her stop cheering. And the fact that this character exists, doesn’t seem ridiculous in that harsh world, and still is her own kind of badass is really awesome.
