Veronica appears a few months into the Archie comic series and is the new girl in Riverdale High School.  She is the only child of the wealthy Hiram Lodge.  Hiram wanted his Veronica to grow up and live a normal childhood without being spoiled and so he moved the family to the small town of Riverdale.  Despite her father attempts to curb her materialism Veronica is often vain and conceited.  She is prone to go on massive shopping sprees and is always wearing the latest fashions.  Her father on occasion throws a monkey wrench at her by taking away credit cards, banning her from seeing Archie or forcing her to get a job.  Despite her sometimes snobbish attitudes Veronica never hesitates to hang out with her middle class friends.

Veronica's closet friend and most bitter rival is Betty.  Both girls have an off and on again love interest with Archie Andrews.  The competition between the girls expands beyond Archie to any accomplishment.  Veronica feels that she must constantly one up Betty.

Other love interests for Veronica include Reggie.  Reggie is more well heeled than Archie and is thus approved of by her father.  However, Reggie is often dropped by Veronica because she sees Betty dating Archie.

Jughead and Veronica can not stand each other and constantly argue.  They manage to keep things semi-underwraps so they can both be around Archie.

Veronica has no siblings but does have cousins Leroy and Marcy who sometimes come to visit.  Leroy is often willing to break the law and often conflicts with Archie.  Marcy is a "geeky" girl into science fiction but is kind to Veronica and often helps get her out of problems.
