An accomplished viper pilot, Kara is self-reliant -- and a bit of a loner. She is tough and rebellious, and not so disciplined as to be able to avoid punching out a superior officer when the situation calls for it. She has a take-charge attitude, and is always hungry for a good fight.
Kara gets her wish when the Cylons launch a sneak attack on Kobol. Thanks to her guts, her brain, and a little luck, she finds herself at the core of the Galactica's combat team, who are called upon to defend the last remnants of humanity from their Cylon pursuers.
