Kaylee Frye is a major character on the Joss Whedon show Firefly and its subsequent movie Serenity. She is the ship's mechanic. She has a canonical intuitive understanding of engines and a love of strawberries.
During the duration of the television show, she's depicted as being in an UST situation with Simon Tam. (At the end of the film, the tension is finally resolved.) In fanworks she's often paired with Simon, with ship's captain Malcolm Reynolds, or with Inara Serra.
