Character Name: Kaylee Frye
Fandom: Firefly
OU, AU, or CR AU: CR AU
Canon Point: Post-series but pre-Serenity movie
Journal: [personal profile] wrench_and_ruffles


Character History: http://firefly.wikia.com/wiki/Kaywinnit_Lee_Frye

Previous Game History: Kaylee was in Mayfield for just over a year. Her initial impressions largely focused on frustration with the gender roles completely out of sorts with the science fiction world she was used to, specifically the fact that the hardware store wouldn't sell her tools and the bar wouldn't serve her alcohol.

She started to bond with Rupert Giles, who assured her there were no Reavers in Mayfield. It was, of course, a matter of weeks before creatures that essentially were Reavers showed up. This led her to be very focused on being better prepared in the future and when the town experienced extended power difficulties in the dead of winter, she was able to help by cobbling together small heaters and generators.

Kaylee generally made herself useful to her fellow residents by helping with any mechanical issue that came up along the way. It was around this time that Kaylee met an idealistic young man with great talk of saving anyone. She found him to be particularly cute when he blushed. Through the intervention of Valentine's Day flowers, Luke found himself unable to confess his feelings and the two began to date.

It was also around this time that Giles received an assortment of weapons and began teaching Kaylee basic self defense. With a sword. While she remains a reluctant combatant, she is a bit more capable of defending herself than she would be from her canonpoint alone.

After this, Kaylee continued helping with mechanical issues, brewing moonshine and attempting to navigate the complex dynamics of the SKywalker clan. She was also assigned work as a waitress, which she wouldn't have minded terribly if it weren't for the whole part where the job wasn't mechanic. She did like getting to talk to lots of people, including a cheery conversation about milkshakes with Darth Vader.

Kaylee is capable of having a cheery conversation with Darth Vader.

At one point there were body swap shenanigans. This probably should have been a sign (more on that later...). In this time, Kaylee joined the ranks of people who have kissed LUke's sister.

Mayfield's prom led to a lecture from Obi-Wan Kenobi about how the Jedi Code forbids relationships. Kaylee is not a fan of the Jedi Code.

Over the course of the summer, Mayfield's stability began to degrade greatly. It seemed like a machine malfunctioning, but without access to any of the workings, Kaylee was unable to fix anything. Which, needless to say, she found rather frustrating.

After the town's original controller was defeated, he revealed that all the town's residents were data copied from the originals. While the majority of the townsfolk had long suspected that Mayfield itself was a simulation, the revelation that they were as well came as somewhat of a shock. Though in retrospect the bodyswap suddenly made sense.

In the end, there was little time for contemplating the issue as Mayfield itself began to go to hell. As Kaylee squeezed into a rather crowded speeder, she realized that she wanted to live. And that was good enough. So when she arrived in a new town full of possibilities, she focused on building, not contemplating herself.

Of course, all of this will mean that when she wakes up on the ship, she's going to assume that she somehow got downloaded to the wrong location.

Major Previous CR

Rupert Giles: Kaylee reminded Giles a bit of Buffy and brought out his protective instincts. They weathered several major events together and he taught her some basic self defense.

Luke Skywalker: Kaylee's boyfriend in her time in Mayfield. She's utterly charmed by all his dashing heroics.

Mara Jade Skywalker: A few months after she started seeing Luke, Luke's future wife showed up in town. It was every bit as awkward as it sounds.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The bulk of Kaylee's interactions with Obi-Wan consisted of him being a buzzkill and her lecturing him about love.

Picky Minch: Picky was Kaylee's assigned son in Mayfield. She found the situation a bit absurd, but was very fond of the boy. The relationship they eventually developed was more "cool older sister" than "mom".

Ruri Hoshino: Ruri hired Kaylee to work on her grounded spacheship. Which is basically the quickest way to Kaylee's heart.

Personality:
Kaylee is generally a very cheery young woman. She has a smile that can brighten a room and a strong desire to make sure she does. She's always eager to make friends and spend time with old ones. Despite being embroiled in the world of smuggling, she has managed to keep a certain innocence, manifesting largely as a tendency to look for the best in people she meets. She just can't get her head around why some of the nastier characters she has come across insist on acting the way they do. I must reiterate that she is capable of having a pleasant conversation with Darth Vader.

As the rest of the crew does their best to shield Kaylee from the worst of the world they move in, Kaylee is a reluctant combatant. Even with the best of intention, she has been known to freeze when required to fire on other people. However, in her time in Mayfield she learned more self defense and had to get by without the majority of the crew. She will never be a fighter, but is much less likely to freeze up in a firefight.

Her innocence does not extend to matters of sex. She is quite upfront about that topic and isn't afraid to make her desires known. Except if the object of those desires isn't quite comfortable with the idea, but this has not exactly been an issue since she started dating Luke. In that situation she'll be very frank with her friends.This trait is not restricted solely to matters of sex. She tends to be very straight with the truth in such matters as the plan for the day being crime. This honesty does not, however, extend to being honest to the point of cruelty. She is well aware of the delicate balance between being open with people and being tactful.

She has an absolute passion for machinery which is well served by her mechanical talents. She intuitively understands mechanical systems and can readily spot a problem and fix it with limited resources. She claims that machines just speak to her. This resourcefulness also extends beyond purely mechanical matters.

Perhaps due to her talents, she has almost a compulsion to fix both things and people. She can hardly stop herself from tinkering with a machine she knows could be working better. And if presented with something broken that she can't manage to fix she will take it very personally and blame herself for any hardship that comes from her inability to fix it. It's one of the few situations that can leave her genuinely morose. Similarly, she also takes it on herself to try to smooth over disagreements between those closest to her. All she wants is for everyone to get along and she finds it incredibly upsetting when she can't get that to happen.

While she is happiest when she is up to her elbows in grease and gears, she also adores traditional "girly" things. She has a huge weakness for incredibly impractical frilly dresses and the colour pink. This is a side that she only rarely gets to indulge on Serenity, but this only makes the desires even stronger. Coupled to this is her tendency to decorate Serenity in an effort to make it more homey.

Kaylee has a passion for good food. It's pretty hard to keep her from a buffet table, especially if there are sweets or strawberries. She tries her best to prepare good meals even with the limited resources possible on a spaceship, the most notable being an effort to make cake out of mostly protein. While she did not enjoy everything about Mayfield, she did quite like having access to exotic ingredients like flour and sugar.

Powers/Abilities: Kaylee is an extremely gifted mechanic, having stated that machines seem to talk to her. She is quick to grasp the intricacies of new machinery and can find more efficient approaches than factory standard. She is also used to keeping Serenity in the sky with extremely limited resources and is thus quit accustomed to improvising.

She in theory can use a pistol, but is by no means an expert marksman. She also has some basic familiarity with bladed weapons that she can employ in a pinch.

Possessions: Mechanic's coveralls with several cute patches. Wrench, ratchet, and screwdriver tucked into the pockets.

Arrival: Ship

Network Sample: http://mayfield-rpg.dreamwidth.org/178650.html?thread=17633754#cmt17633754

Log Sample: Kaylee clutched at the knife as she watched the darkening sky. She still wasn't sure about using it, but those hazmats were definitely dangerous. And Giles hadn't given her those lessons for nothing. If ever there was a time to use them, it was this. Whatever Zemeckis had said about them not being real... she wasn't ready to go yet. Not without a fight.

And then there was a new sound outside and Luke called out, “They're here, hurry!”

If things weren't quite so bad, Kaylee would have admired the dashing heroics as Luke held off the hazmats. But this was life or death, so she scrambled into the speeder, with Luke not far behind. Apparently this hadn`t been the first stop, because there were an awful lot of other people already in the back seat.

Cozy. She could handle that. Luke's sister was doing most of the fighting up front, but she didn't recognize the others. It looked like that'd have to change real quick though. She settled in half on Luke's lap and leaning up against the dignified looking gentleman. She might have to shift over even more if it got really hairy and Luke had to join in on the fighting. She knew he wouldn't hesitate to step in. That was what made him Luke.

So introductions were probably in order. She'd met people under more awkward circumstances. So she just smiled. “Hi, I'm Kaylee.”

With a very brief warning from the pilot, they were underway. Dammit, they were going to live

Character Name: Kaylee Frye
Canon: Firefly
Canon Point: post-Serenity (film, what were they doing naming the movie the same thing as the pilot?)
Character Journal: wrench_and_ruffles

Appearance: Kaylee has dark hair and eyes and a permanent smile on her face. While her crewmates are inclined to see her as small, she is actually of roughly average height. Grease smudges come close to being a permanent feature.
http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/firefly/images/5/55/Kaylee.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100426173058
Age: 20
History: http://firefly.wikia.com/wiki/Kaywinnit_Lee_Frye

She's the sort of person who is capable of having a pleasant conversation with Darth Vader.

As the rest of the crew does their best to shield Kaylee from the worst of the world they move in, Kaylee is a reluctant combatant. Even with the best of intention, she has been known to freeze when required to fire on other people. However, the situation on Mr Universe's moon forced her to push through this situation in fighting Reavers. She'll never like combat, bu she can come through.

Her innocence does not extend to matters of sex. She is quite upfront about that topic and isn't afraid to make her desires known. Except if the object of those desires isn't quite comfortable with the idea, but she and Simon have finally gotten past all that nonsense. In that situation she'll be very frank with her friends. And sex in fact proved to be a powerful motivator in her combat struggles. Her honesty is not restricted solely to matters of sex. She tends to be very straight with the truth in such matters as the plan for the day being crime. This honesty does not, however, extend to being honest to the point of cruelty. She is well aware of the delicate balance between being open with people and being tactful.

All she wants is for everyone to get along and she finds it incredibly upsetting when she can't get that to happen. At her canonpoint she is somewhat shaken by the deaths of Book and Wash, but she is still trying to carry on for the sake of the family.

While she is happiest when she is up to her elbows in grease and gears, she also adores traditional "girly" things. She has a huge weakness for incredibly impractical frilly dresses and the colour pink. This is a side that she only rarely gets to indulge on Serenity, but this only makes the desires even stronger.

Kaylee has a passion for good food. It's pretty hard to keep her from a buffet table, especially if there are sweets or strawberries. She tries her best to prepare good meals even with the limited resources possible on a spaceship, the most notable being an effort to make cake out of mostly protein. She will be quite excited to have such exotic ingredients as flour in New York.

Powers/Special Abilities: Does being capable of having a pleasant conversation with Darth Vader count? Kaylee is in fact utterly mundane in the abilities department.
River Power: Technopathy (would like to play it more as a techno-empathy where machines will do what she wants if she asks them nicely)

Reason for Character Choice: She's just so adorable. Her voice is one that always comes easily.

First-Person Transmission Sample: http://outer-divide.dreamwidth.org/81306.html

Third-Person Log Sample: Despite the life she led on the border worlds, Kaylee was not accustomed to to not being able to walk down the street safely. Sure, it was mostly because she always had Zoe or Jayne or the captain watching her back, but she knew how to work in that world. And in all but the roughest places, she just got by.

She wasn't used to the sort of anger there was in the city. And she certainly wasn't used to it being addressed at her. She didn't mean these people any harm. She wasn't even sure what they were angry about. Other than... them being here? And something about the river, not that any of them had had a choice in that. It should matter, that they just wanted to live their lives.

And right now, living her life meant getting through that crowd. There were a lot of people with angry signs between her and her apartment. Go home. Like that wasn't what she was trying to do right now.

“Excuse me.” She wasn't going to sink to their level. Just walk forward. Make her way through the crowd. And wishing the captain or Zoe was here with her. She fixed things, she didn't deal with people who tried to throw things at other people. And Simon was working late at the clinic. Because he fixed people after the throwing was over.

The people on the edges of the crowd moved easily enough. It got harder, the deeper she got in though. She wished there was another way to get to the Drifter apartments, but they were all this bad. These people knew where she lived. “Could I squeeze by, please?”

She'd faced Reavers. She wasn't going to let a group of yelling people stop her. And she wasn't going to turn all this into a fight. “Don't want any trouble. Just passin' through,” she assured the next cluster.

”You are trouble,” one of them snarled.

She held her hands up. She wasn't even carrying anything. She'd left her tools at the shop, just in case of something like this. Maybe it wasn't the smartest thing in the world, but she couldn't see a way carrying potential weapons into these crowds could help. “It's late. We could all do with sleep.” If only a good nap was enough to calm the nerves of the Unevolved population.

The protestor sputtered a bit, but one of the others distracted him. And then, somehow, she was actually through the crowd. And true to her word, she kept right on walking. She wasn't going to cure the mean today. But if they all just kept being decent, maybe it could sink in eventually.

[It's been a rough few days. Having Reavers show up when she thought there weren't any here wasn't exactly a pleasant experience. But in the aftermath of a Reaver attack, once you're away, you have to keep going]

[Action: Supermarket]

[Now that she's had a couple days to process and fiddle with machinery, Kaylee's feeling a bit more herself. And so she's managing to be fairly enthusiastic as she works her way through the aisles]

Oh, and real flour, that's pretty shiny. Chocolate chips, even, have to pick those up.

[Action: 730 Anderson]

[Kaylee has changed into her coveralls and is up on the roof hanging Christmas lights. She's humming Christmas carols as she works]

[Action: Houses of Anderson Lane]

[Kaylee is knocking on your door with a bag of cookies decorated in red and green]

It ain't because of what they said or nothin'. I just figured we all need a little Christmas right now!
wrench_and_ruffles: (Scared)
[Action]

[No, no, Giles had said they weren't here. But even without those ships, Kaylee'd recognize these anywhere.]

Wo de ma! We've got Reavers!

[And there's only one way to deal with Reavers. Kaylee starts running, looking for shelter and telling anyone that'll listen what that way is.]

Run, you gotta run, find some place you can lock 'em out and stay there. Reavers! Run!
wrench_and_ruffles: (Horrified)
[Action: 730 Anderson, morning]

[Kaylee reacts much as one would expect to waking up next to a stranger. She leaps out of bed and runs out of the room]

W-who are you?

It's me, honey.

No, no, this ain't Serenity.


[Phone, late morning]

This how I send a wave 'round here? Seems I got separated from my crew somehow.

[Action: Bodine Fashion]

[Kaylee has dressed willingly enough in one of the pink dresses she found in the closet, but she's noticed some gaps in her assigned wardrobe. Gaps that seem to be duplicated at the store]

These are all real cute, but what's a girl supposed to wear when she's workin'?
