—Quinn Fabray, Michael

Lucy Quinn Fabray is a major character on Glee. Quinn was the girlfriend of Finn Hudson and was one of the most popular students at William McKinley High School. She was President of The Celibacy Club, the captain of the cheerleading team, the Cheerios, and a member of both The God Squad, and New Directions. She was also in the prom court in her junior and senior year. Her life took a drastic turn when she became pregnant with Noah Puckerman's, Finn's best friend, baby. She lied to Finn and tricks him into believing that she got pregnant when he ejaculated prematurely when they were in a hot tub. The truth eventually comes out and Finn and her break up. Afterwards, at Regionals, Quinn gives birth to her daughter, Beth, whom she gives up for adoption to Shelby Corcoran.

Throughout the series, Quinn goes through a rollercoaster of emotions. In Season Two, she starts a relationship with Sam Evans, but he ends things with her after she cheats on him with Finn. Finn and Quinn restart their relationship and run for prom court, but it ends when Finn realizes he's in love with Rachel Berry. In Season Three, she begins to exhibit erratic behavior, such as joining The Skanks and plotting to take Beth away from her adoptive mother Shelby, Rachel's biological mother. After a series of bad relationships throughout Seasons One - Four, Quinn eventually finds romance with Puck, and the two enter a relationship in Season Five. She left William McKinley High because of her acceptance to Yale. Quinn comes back for the sixth and last season of the show to help Kurt Hummel and Rachel with their new glee club. Quinn ends the show in the series finale, Dreams Come True, where she comes back to McKinley in 2020 for a re-dedication of the auditorium.

Quinn was the original major teen antagonist and a main character in the first three seasons. She was a recurring character for seasons four to six. She was portrayed by Dianna Agron.



Quinn is first introduced as the typical mean cheerleader. She is beautiful, popular, and a complete snob. As a captain of the Cheerios, Quinn walks around with an air of superiority over the other students. Her strive for popularity stems from her family expecting her to be the perfect daughter, which often puts a lot of pressure on her. At times, Quinn is manipulative and conceited, such as using her injury to win prom queen in Prom-asaurus or tricking Finn that he is the father of her baby, despite never having sex with him, or discouraging him joining New Directions, all because she didn't want to risk her popularity.

However, as time went on, Quinn began to appreciate the kindness and support her glee club teammates showed her, especially through her pregnancy, which she never really got from being on the Cheerios. In the beginning of the third season, she begins to display erratic behavior, such as plotting to have Beth taken away from Shelby Corcoran and wanting to make another baby with Puck, which could suggest she had postpartum depression. In mid-Season Three, she is shown to be a different kind, and the complete opposite of her in Season One. She is also shown to be very religious, though her actions often contradicts her morals.
