Day Ten: Favorite female character in a scifi/supernatural show
Sharon "Athena" Agathon - Battlestar Galactica
Battlestar Galactica was often not a very good show. Inconsistent writing, bizarre plots, poor characterization...you name a problem, BSG had it. Yet, even when the show was at its worst, I kept watching because I needed to know what happened to Athena. She chose a side because she had to, and then she fought for it whole-heartedly even when it hurt her. Suffering made her a wiser person, and even when people didn't want to look up to her, they did. She was loved her husband and her child, but she was a warrior when she needed to be -- not just to protect her family, but also to do her job. Female characters who are simultaneously lovers and fighters are hard to come by, and I'm glad I stumbled across this one.
