A-Z Challenge: Z is for Zoe

zoe1Zoe Alleyne Washburne (played by Gina Torres) is Mal’s second in command and Wash’s wife. Zoe fought alongside Malcolm Reynolds as a Browncoat, serving under him as a corporal, and she’s the one person on board who truly understands him.

If you’re looking for a strong female role model for your daughters, you just found her. Zoe takes no nonsense from anyone and fights her own battles, as well as always being ready to defend her family and friends. She’s intelligent, quietly confident, and knows how to handle herself – this is one feisty lady you’d want on your side in a sticky situation.

Entirely devoted to her husband, she’s never sappy about it, but takes romance when and where she can in the cramped ship they call home. She knows what she wants and gets it. And let’s just say Wash is more than happy to comply!

Zoe is a fitting finale to my Firefly A-to-Z!
