Top 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Female Characters
It's a shame with the cancellation of The Cape that we won't get to learn more about Orwell's mysterious past. What we do know is that she is the daughter of villain Peter Fleming, but works as an underground liaison to hero Vince Faraday/The Cape.
When Caprica started, Clarice seemed fairly harmless. She was the head mistress at Athena Academy (where main characters Zoe and Lacy attended). Then we learned more about how Clarice is a leader among the monotheistic terrorist group Soldiers of the One, proving to be one of the main antagonists of the series.
Daughter of Anna (leader of the visitors), Lisa was tasked to lure in human Tyler for big plans to take over Earth. Lisa grew feelings for Tyler however, and this led to her helping the resistance group The Fifth Column in order to try taking down her mother.
Sophia is the leader of extraterrestrial people that crashed on Earth in the 1940s. She emerged early in The Event as someone who wanted peace between her people and the humans. However, a series of unfortunate events (but not THE event) led to her turning on the humans and ultimately wanting to wipe them out. Her character changed so much throughout the series, but by the end it could be seen that she still had some sympathy deep down.
Sally is a ghost who was surprised to find out the two men who just moved into her house could see her. That's cause like her, they are monsters (a werewolf and a vampire). Thanks to them, she starts to understand herself and learns to "live" with the fact that she's dead. She started out not being able to leave her house, and ended up learning how to leave, move things and even possess people (which she only did to get back at her killer).
Zoe Greystone is daughter of Daniel Greystone, head of Greystone Industries and creator of the first cylon (for you BSG fans). Zoe dies in a terrorist attack early in the series, but her avatar lives on in the first cylon. Zoe eventually becomes much more powerful and has major influence on the events that would lead up to the timeline of Battlestar Galactica.
Oh yeah, and I met her...
Originally a con-artist with ties to antagonists the Cabal, Kate switched to the side of good and became a member of the sanctuary. Her bad girl persona complements the rest of the sanctuary group well, and she has become an integral part of the team.
It's amazing how someone can be so beautiful and scary at the same time. Anna is truly an intimidating force, perfect as a leader of an alien race who appears peaceful but has a hidden agenda. This season we got to see how ruthless Anna could really be, having to "handle" both her mother and daughter who both wanted to show compassion to the people of Earth. She's got one mean bite too.
Erica had a lot invested in the visitors. She works for the FBI who's trying to help keep peace between humans and visitors, but she also knows the truth about the visitors. Her son is being used by Anna, and Erica also eventually becomes the leader of the Fifth Column who are trying to take down the visitors. Erica is the perfect adversary for Anna, and the best thing would have been to see these two mothers go head to head (but the series was canceled).
Magnus is a 160 year old researcher who studies Abnormals (people and animals with extraordinary powers and abilities). She helped create the Sanctuary, a place that protects Abnormals from exposure to normal humans. Magnus is incredibly intelligent and resourceful. A tru
