She was raised by her two gay fathers, LeRoy and Hiram Berry, and was able to meet her biological mother Shelby Corcoran, the former coach of Vocal Adrenaline in Theatricality, thanks to the efforts of ex-boyfriend Jesse St. James. Rachel is very competitive and often flaunts her "diva" behavior by always demanding the spotlight and being the center of attention due to her dream of going to Broadway.
However, on numerous occasions, Rachel has shown that she is slowly becoming more considerate and supportive towards the other members of New Directions. She was engaged to Finn Hudson in Yes/No, whom she has had conflicting feelings for ever since the first season episode, Pilot.
In Goodbye, Finn told her that he is setting her free so that she could go to New York and follow her dreams which she couldn't do if she was married to him. She graduated from McKinley High School in the season three graduation episode Goodbye.
In The New Rachel, Season Four, Rachel is now a student at (NYADA) and is finding it hard to fit in with the new adjustments. Her dance teacher, Cassandra July, isn't making her stay in New York City very welcoming either.
By The Break-Up, Finn returns but with the on-going drama, Rachel breaks off their relationship "for now" and their relationship was on hold. In Glease, it seems their relationship has fully dropped after Finn says they shouldn't have contact and he doesn't want to know about Rachel's arrival to Lima, Ohio if she does return again someday.
Rachel is portrayed by actress and singer Lea Michele.
