"Mal. Bad, in the Latin." --River Tam

Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds fought for the continued independence of the planets in the Unification War -- and lost. Bitter about the defeat and unable to see eye-to-eye with the government that formed in its wake, Mal bought his own bit of freedom -- a run-down, Firefly-class transport ship he named Serenity -- and headed out into the black to make his own way. Mal takes on all kinds of cargo and passengers and jobs -- legal or more often not -- almost anything that pays. He wants only to keep his ship flying and his crew safe, though that's rarely as easy as it sounds. - From The Official Serenity Website
