When you can't run, you crawl

and when you can't do that, you find someone to carry you

Name:Zoë Washburne
After the earth was used up
we found a new solar system
and hundreds of earths were terraformed and colonized.
The central planets formed the Alliance and decided
all the planets had to join in under their rule.
There was . . . some disagreement on that point.
After the war, many of the Independents who had fought and lost
drifted to the edges of the system, far from Alliance control.
Out here people struggle to get by with the most basic technologies.
A ship would bring you work, a gun would help you keep it.
A captain's goal was simple:
find a crew,
find a job,
keep flying.

Zoë Washburne (née Alleyne) was born February 15, 2484, "Vesselside" (an expression meaning "aboard a spaceship"). Zoë served in the Unification War under Sergeant Malcolm Reynolds and continues under his command on his spaceship, Serenity. A loyal second-in-command and a tough, deadly fighter, Zoë is the only member of Mal's crew to regularly call him "sir" and take orders as if receiving them from a superior officer, although she often expresses concern with his ideas. At the time of the Battle of Serenity Valley, Zoë had attained the rank of Corporal. She and Sergeant Malcolm Reynolds were the only survivors of their platoon in that battle.

Zoë is lean, standing at about 5' 10" (1.78 m), with tight, shoulder-length curls and a milk chocolate complexion. She's often serious, poised, and calm, but has a smile that can light a whole room. Unless otherwise specified, she is always wearing: a leather necklace (speculated to actually be a shoelace from the boots that Zoë wore during the Unification War, tied into a knot); well-worn knee-high boots; and a mares leg in thigh holster.
