Jayne Cobb, the traitor
Jayne Cobb is one of the main characters in the Firefly series. This series, created in 2002 by Joss Whedon, lasted only 14 episodes and a TV movie, but it remains a cult for many fans. In the distant future, humans have colonized the galaxy and live under the global government of the Alliance. But some of them try to keep a certain independence, which gives an atmosphere strongly inspired by the western in addition to the science-fiction aspect. This is the case of the crew of the ship Serenity, whose activities are not always legal. Jayne is probably the least sympathetic character of the crew even if he has a great comic potential, due in part to his very limited intelligence. He was recruited by Captain Malcolm Reynolds when Jayne and his crew were attacking them. When he was offered a better salary, he didn’t hesitate to kill his colleagues to join the crew of the Serenity. Jayne is mainly motivated by money and will try to denounce Simon and River, two passengers running away from the alliance, to get the reward.
