Serenity really did look like a floating piece of junk to most of the 'Verse. It wasn't very impressive in any sense. Not to people used to the sprawling colossi that were Alliance ships. To Malcolm Reynolds and crew, though, she was more than that. She was home. She was refuge. She was sanctuary. The crew say around the dining table laughing- except for Mal, anyways. Jayne Cobb. The bruiser. Used to be a bit of a dick. Some things had forced a change. Inara. A registered Companion. A bit of tension with Mal. In an extremely sexual sense. Kaylee. Best damn engineer in the 'Verse. Pretty adorable, too. Wash. The pilot, and comedian, of the group. Married to Zoe. Zoe. Probably the only real reason the ship hadn't fallen apart. Kick-ass and the dominant one in her marriage. Simon. The medic of the ship. 'Secretly' attracted to Kaylee. Kinda awkward sometimes... but a nice guy. River. Not all there. Way smarter than any one of them. More dangerous, too. Book. The preacher. Knows a lot more about crime than he probably should. Then there was Mal himself. He was the captain. Right now, though, he was... confused. Logan's memories were washing over him... and he was starting to wonder if Jen, Teresa and Lisa would ever show up. You should introduce your character to the world and the crew first.
