Dana Scully

She is dedicated to objectivity and common sense, but open to extreme possibilities. Special Agent Dana Scully is not only a medical doctor with a specialty in forensics, but a firm believer in reason who thinks there is a scientific explanation behind every X-file. Against her parent's wishes, Scully went from medical school to Quantico, where she taught for two years at the FBI's training academy. From there she was assigned to work with Fox Mulder and the X-Files, with the strong implication that she was to debunk them. Over the years that they have worked together, her trust in his instincts and her respect for his integrity have eroded her skepticism. She finds her faith in a scientific and orderly universe constantly challenged by the cases she pursues with Mulder. Far from being a spy for the bureaucrats who hinder their work, Scully is a full partner in the X-Files, focusing on assembling the hard evidence that will prove the truth is out there.
