Calliope “Cal” Burns (Imani Lewis) is a main character in Netflix’s First Kill. Based on the short story by V.E. Schwab, the plot centers on two enemies: Calliope and Juliette. As the title suggests, each must carry out their first kill — Calliope must kill her first monster and Juliette must feed from her first victim — but they fall for each other instead. Cal comes from a family of hunters, whose mission is to eradicate monsters. Cal senses Juliette is a vampire and uses her keen investigation skills to test the theory with a silver bracelet. But growing closer to Juliette makes her realize not all monsters are evil, like she was raised to believe. She shows tenacity by defending and seeing her despite her family’s warnings. Her style is more trendy, often featuring athletic wear to reflect her hunter training.
