Winifred Burkle, Angel

One of the most academic characters in all of the Whedon-verse, Angel's Winifred "Fred" Burkle was first introduced as an actual damsel in distress, but proved pretty quickly that she was anything but. As a physics student and researcher at UCLA, she was off the charts when it came to scientific knowledge, understanding, and application. After spending a few years trapped in a demon dimension (all the while working out equations on the walls of the cave she lived in), Fred returned to LA and became an integral member of Angel Investigations. Up until her untimely and utterly heartbreaking end, she continued to solve every problem under the moon and then some.
