While it is easy to believe that Brittany, as a Cheerio, could or can be mean spirited, it's not exactly the case. Brittany is a sweet, kind hearted if somewhat simple girl. At times, Britt can be a tad blunt, occasionally being mean with her words if not her intentions. As best friends with Santana and, for a time, Quinn, Brittany often made fun of the lower classmen and the 'gleeks' before she joined with her fellow Cheerio's to spy for Coach Sylvester. Sometimes, Britt's lack of a filter and tactless honesty means she comes off as rude or nasty, but in truth, she is just trying to not lie -because lying is bad.
Britt is a compassionate girl, as seen by her genuine friendship with Becky Jackson -even if, at first, she was trying to get the answers to the English pop quiz. Although proudly promiscuous, Brittany has an innocent and fragile demeanour, she likes affection, attention and whatever way she can get it. She tends to rely on the guidance of others, most notably her best friend, Santana, to the point that during the summer holidays, she gets lost in the sewers. She has an aversion to violence, particularly between her friends, a love for animals, especially birds and cats, she has been known to have kept a bird in her locker and Lord Tubbington is her best of best friends -even though he totally reads her diary and steals part of her soul at night.
Possibly the ultimate 'dumb blonde', Brittany is aware of her failings intelligence wise, however she is very sensitive to being called stupid. She has only recently learned the end of the alphabet, doesn't know how to turn on a computer, cannot read a calender, presumably has no sense of direction (she was lost in the sewers for the summer) and regularly gets words mixed up with similar sounding ones. Additionally, Britt has a somewhat childish belief in make-believe and fairy tales, to this day she still believes in Santa, thinks the stork delivers babies and that magic exists. Mostly, Britt gives of a rather child-like nature which fosters a sort of protective nature in her friends, mostly noted in Santana and Artie's attempts to keep Britt's belief alive.
Britt is dependable, loyal and a faithful friend. She feels deeply for all those she is friends with and will often go out of her way to help if she can. She rarely turns down a request for help, even if she's not the best person for the job, and is more than capable of seeing the better parts in people even when they don't see them for themselves. While Brittany has some degree of self-confidence, a lot of the time, she does need a little gentle nudging to remind her that she is capable of things. She's enthusiastic and outgoing, so she tends to get herself into a lot of activities or situations, occasionally just needing a little direction to get it done.
Her first and true love, however, is dancing. And Brittany is always sure of herself when she's dancing, she's exceptionally confident and proud of her skills, creative and adventurous with her style and very varied in her talents. She's a great choreographer, both for her own dancing ability and those around her, with numerous different styles under her belt too, Brittany can regularly put on a great, mixed and stylish performance.
With several years of dancing and cheerleading under her belt, Brittany is a skilled athlete, dancer and performer. She has high endurance for training, both in pushing herself to her limits and in strength, flexibility and coping with long and hard work outs. She's got great muscle control, breathing and energy managing. For a slim, average height high schooler, Brittany has above average strength, something that comes from tossing other cheerleaders in the air and catching them, or standing on her hands for a long time.
Brittany isn't academically skilled, but she's creatively skilled. She can focus on creative aspects with 100% attention and do really awesome things; crafts, baking, fund raising, games, all things fun and Britt is great at them.
She's also really useful when it comes to random information about felines, Days of Our Lives, My Little Pony, birds in general or random single occurrence information about things that no one really cares about. Brittany is also a pretty good singer.
Brittany Susan was the first child of recently married Diane and Jeremy Pierce. Both with well to do jobs -she as a manager at one of the only high class hotels in Lima and he as a project developer for a housing company, the Pierce's felt that then was as good a time as any to start a family. Brittany was, quite easily, a little bundle of joy. Bright natured and easily soothed, Britt was any first parents dream child.
When Britt started getting older, Diane noticed that she tended to 'play' with imaginary friends and decided that perhaps Britt would be better off with a sibling. Britt was five when her little sister Christina was born. Brittany only got into troube once for leaving Christina at the toy shop, since they wouldn't exchange her for one of the crying Annabelle dolls. Brittany liked Christina fine, but she wasn't exactly 'fun' to play with -there were too many rules. So Brittany mostly played with her Barbies and Fruitbat -the cactus on the landing.
School was fun; her teachers regularly questioned her ability, but Brittany always had a vivid imagination, so she got by mostly without worrying too much about things like 'spelling' and 'tying shoelaces'. For her downfalls academics wise, Brittany had a great sense of coordination and a passion for dance. She was nine when she was signed up for dance classes and that was where her genius really came through. Britt excelled, taking multiple styles of dance and showing signs of being a great performer, although Brittany occasionally felt over shadowed by her class mates. While she didn't have many friends, Brittany got along with most people, but still felt somewhat lonely. Her Mother found the solution in a shop window and then Brittany got her closest ally to date; Lord Tubbington. Although her loyal feline friend occasionally reads her diary and smokes in the house when he knows its against the rules, she's never had someone so willing to listen to her.
When she was enrolled in McKinley High, Brittany already knew what she wanted to do. She wanted to be a Cheerio. It was the closest to being a performer as there really was in McKinley; they were champions, and Brittany wanted to showcase her talents, because she knew dancing and performing really was the highlight of her abilities. Cheerio's made her the first real friend she ever had -sure there were real people through the lower grades, but none of them really got Brittany. Santana, however, didn't see the oddities of Brittany's personality and the pair were fast friends with the bond of cheerleading to start them off.
Much of Brittany's high school life was spent securing her reputation -Cheerio's had to be popular, or they weren't Cheerio's, making sure Coach Sylvester never cut her from the team, and working her way through the male population of the school. Santana and Quinn's causes became Brittany's causes by extension and where Santana led, Britt was sure to follow. The close friendship developed into, what Brittany simply accepted as a casual sexual hook-up from time to time, mostly when Santana was between partners.
Under Quinn's leadership, Brittany joined with the Glee club to spy for Coach Sylvester, although it slowly built into much more for all concerned. For Britt it was another chance to dance, she was easily the strongest female dancer which she enjoyed, and found a skill in Choreographing routines.
When they returned for junior year, after spending most of her summer lost in the sewer, Britt was just as glad as most that Glee survived the year. Although Coach Sylvester made her lie about the football Coach, and Mr Schue made her tell the truth, Britt was mostly caught up in the tug-of-war for power between Santana and Quinn. The relationship with Santana got more nad more complicated and Brittany felt somewhat lost when Santana pulled away from her. Prompting her to strike up a friendship with Artie -who she'd previously believed was a robot- to do a Duet project with her for Glee. It didn't end well, she took Artie's virginity but lost his friendship and it left her bummed out a bit.
It turned out okay though; making up with Santana and Artie and her making up and being boyfriend and girlfriend -most people didn't bother being her boyfriend after they'd made out or ha sex, but Artie was really great to her and everything. And although Brittany really liked the Cheerio's, and she didn't want the Mama Cannon to go without food for the Baby Cannon's, she really didn't want to die at the cheer Nationals, so she gave up Cheerleading for Glee with her friends. Although it did knock her popularity, she still had glee and Artie so she didn't mind too much. Brittany got to feel smart for a while too, when she was drafted -or bribed- onto the Brainiacs and got to answer a bunch of questions about cat diseases. It felt great being smart for once, although the alphabet is still a little confusing and she still has trouble with figuring out the calenders.
But loving Artie and loving Santana got complicated, and not wanting to hurt Artie hurt Santana and then Artie hurt her and they all broke up. They almost feel like friends, and even though they didn't win Nationals in New York -Santana says it's because Finn and Rachel got gross on stage- Britt's just excited to be back, because 12th isn't that bad.
