As I said in my Firefly review, the series has some of the best and most likeable cast of characters ever. Joss Whedon knows how to make characters mesh and work perfectly together like no other filmmaker and Firefly is a shining example of his skill. For this post I will go into detail about each character without spoilers, unless given warning.
If had to choose a favorite of the series, I would have to say the entire crew. They are some of the most loveable group of outlaws ever banded together. Below characters are not in any particular order. There was one problem I had while writing this, I started to run out of positive adjectives to describe things about the franchise and characters.
Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Captain Malcolm Reynolds, kind of the star of the series since it revolves around his ship Serenity. Basically he is Han Solo and just like Han he will shot first. There are certainly differences, but the similarities are hard to ignore. Mal is what Han would be if he lost the Rebellion more bitter and even more ruthless at times. However, Mal does have a "Heart of Gold" when it comes to keeping his crew safe.
Hoban "Wash" Washburne
Zoe Alleyne Washburne
Kaylee is the sweetest most cheerful character ever and that I why I love her. She is not good in a fight, but she knows her way around an engine, that is why she is the best mechanic in the verse. In many ways she reminds me Tali from the Mass Effect franchise, being so cute and nice, and good with tech.
