Book is a Shepherd, a humble man of God. He traveled for a time as a passenger aboard Serenity, to walk the worlds and spread the Word to those who saw fit to hear it. A bit older and wiser than the others, Book's an educated man who enjoys learning as much as teaching. But there's more to Book than he lets on -- newly called to the priesthood, the particulars of Book's earlier life are a source of constant speculation amongst the crew, and that he's proven his worth in a fight only adds fuel to the fire. Shepherd Book seems destined to remain an enigma, his beliefs having led him to leave the ship. - From The Official Serenity Website
