I found it interesting to note that our heroine’s cold-weather gear seems in no way camouflaged for snowy conditions: the black-on-burgundy tells us that her mission doesn’t involve subterfuge. She’s out to hunt hell-spawn and it doesn’t matter if they see her coming or not. Jessie’s description says that the Templar packs “an enchanted shotgun that fires silver bullets and makes nice holes in demons.” The excellently rendered smoke wafting from her gun tells us another demon is lain low by the Templar’s boom-stick.

Lizzy Caplan as Juliette Flowers

She wears a leather jacket — decorated with badges, feathers, and a gas mask hanging from one shoulder — armoured pants, and gloves with a pair of blades attached to the back. A shot gun lies across her knees while lying at her feet is a large dog wearing a gas mask with a stick of dynamite hanging from its collar. ]
Basically, a gender-flipped version of the titular characters from the classic post-apoc film A Boy And His Dog.

Badass women of sci-fi: Zoe Washburne. By me.
