Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie
"Mac, you really do look-"
"Don't distract me. I'm plotting how to kill you and make it look like an accident."
The Mars family's favorite go-to geek and self-declared Q to Veronica's Bond, Mac is willing to help at all hours, even sneaking out in the middle of the night to visit rich boys in their hotel suite — provided the price is right. In turn, she has to suffer some indignities, like Veronica implying she has a crush on Butters Clemmons. Or Veronica agreeing that Mac will go to prom with Butters without asking her first, even though it was to get one of Mac's own gadgets out of Principal Clemmons's office. Or Veronica apparently neglecting to hide her alterna-prom invitation from Butters, thus accidentally ensuring that Mac still has to go on her date even though the real prom has been cancelled. So far, these instances haven't been enough to take the fun out of their detecting tag team, but that could change fairly quickly should Butters propose.
Mac briefly dated Beaver Casablancas but was recently dumped after apparently getting too close to sensitive topics. Not one to be easily intimidated — although that might be hard, anyway, given the source — she has taken up the mantle of the psycho ex-girlfriend and plans to intercept his cell phone calls, proving again that it is unwise to challenge a technologically savvy person — particularly if she is interested in your well-being.
Between hacking other people's hard drives for Keith and Veronica, listening in on her fractious ex-boyfriend, and finding herself the subject of unwelcome advances from the hopeful Butters, Mac sure has a lot on her plate these days. We are left wondering how she finds the time to keep her thirty different hairstyles and look absolutely fabulous in her alterna-prom outfit, but, apparently, there is nothing that can faze a genius.
