|Kaylee Frye is Serenity's ace mechanic, a tomboy who accepts anything the 'verse throws at her with a smile and a bounce. Trained by her father, she's a natural mechanic, which got her the job on the Firefly Transport ship Serenity despite her total lack of experience with either that model of ship or a Trace Compression Block engine. At the same time, she can be flummoxed by particularly difficult problems. Or by someone who sets out to break a machine instead of fixing it, which seems a fundamentally foreign concept to her. She's not much good in a gunfight but Kaylee is a 'glass is half full' kinda gal. No matter what is going on around her, she's usually able to see the positive side of the situation. When describing the more questionable behavior among her fellow crewmates, she makes even the most illegal behavior sound adorable. Her own quarters on ship (decorated with Christmas lights and her name painted on the doorway with flowers)--she also has a hammock set up in the engine room--Kaylee can be found working or communing with Serenity, which she treats like another member of the crew.
