First up? Mouse.
After Dot, Mouse is the single most efficient sprite in Mainframe. With her experience in the Net paired with her own survivalist tendencies, she can get in and out of any situation she wants, and no one is going to cross her or question her abilities. There's a certain command to her presence, even if she is quick to dismiss it (responsibilities are a bitch, you guys).
And second is AndrAIa.

Normally, I'd have major issues with how sexualized AndrAIa happens to be, but her appearance rarely if ever affects anything* that happens in an episode. She proves time and time again that her skills are not to be underestimated, and Matrix, the good boyfriend that he is, knows that she can do better than take care of herself.
And there you have it: the two contenders for my favorite secondary character. And just as a reminder, if I'm not as detailed or in depth as I have been on my other challenges, it's because I'm also doing NaNoWriMo** this year! Writing 1667 words per day doesn't really seem like a difficult thing, but I'm telling you, IT IS.
BACK TO CHALLENGE
* When Ray Tracer is first introduced, he is very attracted to AndrAIa, which causes a rift between her and Matrix, an all-to-common plot trope, but I'll forgive that one.
