Kaywinnet Lee "Kaylee" Frye

(played by Jewel Staitie)


Although never formally trained, Kaylee is the ships talented mechanic (“Kaylee Frye (Firefly Character)”). Sweet, carefree, and loving, Kaylee develops positive relationships with her crewmates as well as the ship itself. Her knowledge of the ship’s workings are often far more advanced than the other crewmembers, and she takes insults to Serenity very personally (“Fireflywiki.org”). The way in which she talks about the ship makes it seem more understandable and less futuristic to the viewers (“Fireflywiki.org”). After Simon heals her gun-wound in “Serenity part I”, Kaylee has an unrequited romantic interest with the young doctor. (“Kaylee Frye (Firefly character)”)
