Girls Who Kick Ass! Fiona Glenanne

Fiona Glenanne is a fictional character in the television series Burn Notice, portrayed by Gabrielle Anwar

According to Fiona's biography from USA Network: “She was affiliated with the IRA for 14 years but ran afoul of her old organization because she did not like being told what to do. She has since gone out on her own, picking up odd jobs and using her skills in explosives, picking locks, tracking, weapons, and hand-to-hand combat to make a living.”

She currently is working with Michael Westen, Sam Axe and since season 4, Jesse Porter, doing odd jobs, as well as being an unlicensed bounty hunter. She has a fondness for explosives, always keeping some on hand.

Fiona has a tendency to shoot (or blow up) first and ask questions later. She is a brilliant strategist, but her preferred method is going in with guns blazing or IEDs exploding, and Michael frequently has to hold her back. Fiona becomes especially upset when someone abuses or endangers children.

Fiona also has a certain vixen-complex, using her sex appeal to her advantage in acquiring information.

In the pilot episode, she spoke with an Irish accent; starting with "Identity", she has consistently spoken with an American accent as part of her effort to fit in with the Miami scene.
