Character Bio

Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds photo
Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds is the owner of Serenity and former Independent sergeant in the pivotal Battle of Serenity Valley. Very little is known about the enigmatic Captain; the little he reveals about his past life betrays nothing of his character (a mystery of its own). Malcolm reveals that he grew up on a ranch, and was raised by his mother and the ranch hands. The only other scenes of his past life that are shown are about the Unification War, in which he and Zoe fought for the Independent Army, the "Browncoats", as a platoon sergeant in the 57th Overlanders.

Mal is cunning, an efficient leader and is skilled with guns as well as in hand-to-hand combat. His character is full of contradictions and a drive for his will for independence. While he is not above petty theft, smuggling or even killing to maintain his free lifestyle, he is generally honest in his dealings with others, fiercely loyal to his crew and closely follows a personal moral code. He is constantly fighting his demons, and his true self remains something of a mystery.
