Abby Sciuto, "NCIS" (CBS)

A perky ponytailed scientist who doesn't let her lab coat hide her Gothness. An essential member of a naval criminal investigative lab, she can crack computer code, analyze weapons, and decipher DNA samples (even plant-based ones). A warmhearted optimist even in the grimmest conditions (although she can fall prey to the occasional phobia), she makes everyone feel like family and can sometimes even find family members by accident.
