Why is it being said that Ksenia Solo averts the Fake Russian trope because she's Latvian? Latvia is not part of Russia and hasn't been for over twenty years. Nor are Latvians culturally Russian or even ethnically Slavic, they are a Baltic people. It's like saying an Irish woman averts the Fake Brit trope. And in any case if she did avert it the trope shouldn't even be listed.

According to her Wikipedia page, Ksenia is of Russian heritage. That would make her ethnically Russian, rather than *fake* Russian.

Evidence that Bo became 'More Badass' in Season 2

In the char sheet, there's a claim that Bo took a level in badass- but she was beating people up and generally doing her fair share of the heavy hitting in Season 1. Example: the second episode has her fighting a headless mercenary with a broom and winning. Afterwards, in a subsequent episode, she fights a guy that could easily be a pro wrestler TO A STANDSTILL. So since when was Bo not a badass in Season 1?

Just noticed that and ITA. She took on two opponents at once in the first episode with not real combat experience and beat them. Am removing Faux Action Girl
