Place of birth: Unknown

He has a mother (she sent him his iconic striped knitted hat), a brother named Mattie who suffers from 'damp lung' and a father who seems to be a welder ('The Message').

He has one tattoo on the upper left arm. It is a red dragon and yin yang symbol with the capital letters M and A.

He's the most ruthless member of the crew, and also the one least trusted. He's made it clear that if the price was right (or if his life was in danger) he would turn on the crew, though sometimes this seems to be more talk than anything else.

He named his favorite weapon Vera and once offered her to Mal in trade for Mal's "wife", Saffron.

He's not overly fond of River and Simon Tam, especially since River cut across the chest, knocked him to the ground in a tussle, and threatened that she could kill him with her brain.

He accidentally dropped a huge amount of money on a small town of mudders, causing them to make a statue of him and make songs about him, calling him the hero of Canton.

While he and Mal have had issues, he still looks out for Mal when things get rough. He's also very protective of Kaylee.
