- Firefly Characters - Michael Surbrook's take on the characters in the show
The casual crew of the Olivia - who occasionally get together for the good of the many (or because they're bored or need money)
- Athena - Captain, Hacker - she's rich but needs work to keep life interesting, and is the one looking for new work.
- Lee - Security - has a history with Athena
- Jewels (sp?) - Pilot, owner of the Olivia, she's possibly a bit OCD
- Luthor - Muscle - ex professional fighter with attitude
- The Iceman - Lockpicking expert with no past and no name
- Zhang Jun - Ex Army medic looking to help the less privileged (mostly to rebel against his upbringing)
