Malcom "Mal" Reynolds captains an unusual crew aboard his ship, Serenity. Rebel soldier turned freighter captain, Mal is the glue that holds his team together. Although far from perfect, he never puts his own desires above the safety of his crew. For him, no job is too big, small, illegal, or dangerous as long as it keeps his ship flying and his crew together.
Jayne Cobb is not your typical mercenary. Originally hired out of self-preservation, Jayne has made a home for himself aboard Serenity despite his past indiscretions. His softer side is well hidden behind an arsenal of firearms, blades, explosives, and probably much more.
Reavers are feared throughout the 'verse. The by-product of an experiment gone horribly wrong, Reavers are a grisly glimpse into humanity's future. Driven by primal instincts, they travel in large numbers and destroy everything and everyone in their way.
