Kimmalyn (Callsign: Quirk) is a cadet in DDF Flight School.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Kimmalyn is a girl around Spensa's age, with tan-brown skin and long, curly black hair, who is taller than Spensa.[1]

She likes to quote someone called the Saint, though no one else knows who that is. It is later revealed that most of the Saint's "sayings" actually originated with Kimmalyn[2].

She occasionally likes to insult people without their being aware they have been insulted[citation needed].


Kimmalyn is a poor flyer, but an expert markswoman, specializing in sniping Krell ships from a distance that would normally be impossible[3].


Kimmalyn is from Bountiful Cavern. Her father was a gunner, and gave Kimmalyn training on the subject.[3]

Her callsign was originally Quick, but Cobb changed it to Quirk for her personality.[4]

After the battle where Hurl died, Kimmalyn quit the DDF, blaming her poor flying skills for Hurl's death.[5]
