• SKYE -- This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident - with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.
• AGENT GRANT WARD -- Quite the physical specimen and "cool under fire," he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He's a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he's the kind of guy that grows on you.
• AGENT ALTHEA RICE-- Also known as "The Calvary," this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.
• AGENT LEO FITZ and AGENT JEMMA SIMMONS -- These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other's company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies - she deals with biology and chemistry, he's a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.
Although this sounds like the most standard TV show assortment of characters ever, if there's one thing I completely trust Joss Whedon to do it's to create rich, deeply realized characters with wit and charm that we call come to love. And then kill them. (Via Newsarama)
