We're out there fighting a holy war, Mom. I need something I can use as a shield against everything that's coming our way. Protection from everybody out there who hates us, who's out for our blood.

Biography

Early Life

Veronica Lodge was born in 2001 in New York to the wealthy socialites Hiram and Hermione Lodge, and is the half-sister to Hiram's first daughter, Hermosa. Due to her parents' wealth and status in New York, Veronica lived a life of luxury and privilege, attending private schools, partying and doing drugs with her friend, Nick St. Clair. She also befriended Katy Keene when she was around sixteen, as Keene helped her design her dress for the Quinceañera. While attending private schools alongside Katy, Veronica became a bully, often making fun of her classmates. The two would make fun of their classmate Paige, whom she noted was a misfit and they would torment her because they were cruel.

Paige would transfer to remove herself from Veronica's bullying, causing Lodge to feel guilty and try to change her ways. When her father was imprisoned for embezzlement and fraud, Veronica was the subject of gossip and was accused of being a spoiled teenager. Wanting to change, Veronica and her mother moved to Riverdale by the end of the summer, where she was determined to change her past ways to become a kinder person.

While trying out for cheerleading with Betty, Veronica is accepted while Betty is not, causing Lodge to refuse to join the team. She then tells Cheryl that she was once like her and that she will get hers, leading Blossom to reluctantly allow Betty to join the squad.

She apologizes to Betty for her actions, but the latter (whom initially accepted it), does not entirely forgive her since she has feelings for Archie.
