Rachel Barbra Berry is a main character on Glee. She is currently a student at NYADA run by dean Carmen Tibideaux. She is an alumni of William McKinley High School as of the season three graduation episode, Goodbye. She had been the co-captain of New Directions along with Finn Hudson ever since Mattress. She was one of the three major self-proclaimed divas of the club: the others being two of her best friends; Mercedes Jones and Kurt Hummel. Rachel is a very driven and ambitious young woman. 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 the episode Yes/No, Finn proposes to Rachel and in Michael Rachel accepts his proposal. In On My Way, they planned to get married, and in the beginning of Big Brother it is revealed that they postponed their wedding due to Quinn's texting and driving car accident. 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.

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 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 is now on hold.

Rachel is portrayed by actress Lea Michele.
