River Tam (Firefly)
I was working on a character profile for a character I based off of River and I couldn’t stop thinking about Firefly. So, I created someone who, in my opinion, is one of the most memorable characters in sci-fi using the dollmaker Sci-Fi Warrior by Azaleas Dolls. For those of you who haven’t seen Firefly, River is the genius sister of Simon Tam. She and her brother became fugitives after the Alliance (the evil government in Firefly) took her to what her family thought was a special school, but was actually a cover for a government project that conducted experiments on her. Simon risked his life and career to save her and they both stay on Serenity as fugitives. The experience made her crazy as she speaks mostly in metaphors and may seem helpless, but can be quite deadly when the situation calls for it. So don’t underestimate this girl or you will regret it. Unfortunately, Firefly got canceled after its first season but there are still movies and comic books to help you get your fix. There’s also a game in the works called Firefly Online, but it’s been in development hell. So I doubt that it will be released soon, if at all. In all honesty, I think the game’s canceled which, as a browncoat, I find a real shame.
