Genre Character of the Week: Kenzi

Having just finished watching the new first season of the Showcase series Lost Girl, I thought it would be fun this week to look at my favourite character in the show, the title character’s side-kick Kenzi.

Unlike everyone else on the show (who are all members of a race called the Fae – think different types of faeries), Kenzie is delightfully human. She’s street smart, wise cracking thief, and after being saved by the main character, Bo, in the pilot (which I reviewed here), she is the main characters best friend and often the voice of the audience.

Kenzi (played wonderfully by Ksenia Solo), comes across at first as a sort of grifter, looking for any way to make a quick buck and get on with her day, but throughout the series it becomes more and more apparent that as she becomes involved with the world of the Fae and Bo in particular, she is a decent person at heart and is willing to do the right thing when the chips are down.

What can I say, I’m a sucker for the loud mouth characters, also she tends to get the best lines in each episode.
