The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet: A Novel - Becky Chambers

I've been mentally matching up the characters in this book to the Firefly characters I feel like Chambers might have had in mind. Here's my list so far:

 

Ashby = Mal (not really, but the closest fit I can find)

 

Sissix = Zoe, with the potential for a bit of Inara

 

Rosemary = Simon

 

Kizzy = Kaylee

 

Jenks = Wash

 

Lovey = ?

 

Dr. Chef = Shepherd Book

 

Corbin = Jayne

 

Ohan = maybe River, a little?
