Welcome to the character page for the animated series, ''{{Braceface}}''


[[folder:Main Cast]]

!! Sharon Spitz
->Voiced by: Alicia Silverstone (Seasons 1-2), Stacey [=DePass=] (Season 3)

The lead of the series. A socially awkward girl whose braces complicate things even more (especially since they got affected when a lighting storm hit while they were being fitted on her). Also a stout vegetarian, animal lover and activist.

* ACupAngst: She is constantly and excessively insecure about her chest, being completely flat-chested. So much so in fact that she tried on one episode to increase her breast size with a pneumatic pump.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlliterativeName
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Genesis. [[spoiler: Until it's revealed that Genesis feels the same way about her.]]
* BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill: Subverted; Sharon got off relatively easy with her braces despite the side effects they bring.
* CoolLoser: To a small degree.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Sharon is known to be a clumsy, ditzy girl and would usually end up embarrassing herself one way or the next.
* FormerFriendOfAlphaBitch: Sharon and Nina were friends as little girls, but one day someone destroyed all of Nina's dolls and she blamed Sharon. In the third season, Nina learned the truth and tries reconciling with Sharon.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She loves animals, so much so that her family has three cats and two dogs.
* ISophagus: Her braces tend to affect the environment around her from time to time including messing with lockers, electronics, water fountains, even sometimes receiving radio signals in her mouth.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Especially when it comes to activism. She is very stubborn in insisting that her reasons are the right one and can never see things from the other person's POV most of the time. Though its this attitude that powers most of the conflicts she gets into. More often then not she has to learn the hard way you can't always get what you want.
* MiddleChildSyndrome
* NaiveEverygirl: Sharon wants everything a teenage girl wants: to be popular, get good grades, hang out with friends, and have a boyfriend. She sometimes does get into trouble and messes up like every other teen, but she always learns from her mistakes and sets things right in the end, no matter what the situation.
* OfficialCouple: With Alden. They initially become an official romantic couple when Alden ended up asking her out, but, one year later, Alden ended things due to Sharon's jealousy. In the series finale, Alden realizes that he still has feelings for Sharon, and the two ultimately end up getting back together.
* OutnumberedSibling: She's the only daughter of three kids.
* PunnyName
* SoapBoxSadie: A very stubborn one at that. She is a vegetarian and animal rights activist.

* LettingHerHairDown: From time to time--and she looks very cute too.
* OdangoHair: Her default style.
* OfficialCouple: With Brock by season three, though it takes awhile as she initially just saw him as too immature. But slowly starts to warm up to him around the second season.
* PassionateSportsGirl: She loves sports, especially extreme sports, and is always trying to get her friends to join her, but Sharon and Connor don't share Maria's thirst for danger or competitive streak.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Sharon's Girly Girl.
* TwoferTokenMinority: She's half Chinese from her dad's side and half Italian from her mom's side.
* WiseBeyondHerYears: With a few exceptions, she's usually the voice of reason for Sharon.

!! Connor [=MacKenzie=]
->Voiced by: Peter Oldring

The initial male friend of Sharon's. Very much a nerd with every allergy under the sun but often there for his friends when needed.

!! Brock Leighton
->Voiced by: Daniel [=DeSanto=]

Alden's best friend, a guy who tries to act cooler then he really is.

* BlackBestFriend: To Alden.
* CasanovaWannabe: He worked really hard at his "ladies' man" persona, but was not fooling anyone--especially not Maria.
* ClassClown: He is the kind of guy who is always trying to get attention.
* CoolShades: Wears a pair.
* LastNameBasis: Usually calls Sharon (and sometimes Maria) by their last names.
* OfficialCouple: With Maria, though it takes much to try and woo her. He finally succeeds in the second season.

!! Nina Harper
->Voiced by: Katie Griffin

Sharon's ex-best friend and now rival on the school grounds.

* AlphaBitch: The most popular girl in her class.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Her attitude towards Sharon started simply because Nina saw someone had ripped all the heads off of her dolls--Nina blamed Sharon for it, despite having no proof that Sharon did it. It wasn't until the third season that it was revealed that a cousin of Nina's was the true culprit--and the only reason Nina's cousin had done it was because Nina's dolls were better dressed than her own dolls.
* EvilRedhead: She's got long red hair, but isn't a natural redhead--in a flashback to when she and Sharon were in grade school, it's shown that Nina's natural hair color is actually brown.

* RichBitch: She's one of the richest kids in school.
* StepfordSmiler: While flaunts her wealth, fashion and social status, Nina's life isn't as a perfect as she likes to make people think it is, for a few reasons:
** 1.) Her parents are generally to busy with work to spend time with her and are often away on business trips--and when they ''are'' home, they're shown to be very embarrassing and aren't aware of the doll incident and think that Sharon and Nina are still friends.
** 2.) She has very actual friends, despite being super popular.

!! Alyson Malitski
->Voiced by: Emily Hampshire

Nina's friend through most of the first season. She leaves her in the second season and becomes Connor's girlfriend as well becoming friends with Sharon and Maria.

* BetaBitch: Subverted. Alyson was never actually cruel or mean; she just did whatever Nina told her to do, because, like a lot of teenagers, Alyson just wants to fit in and be noticed.
* TheDitz: A little simple minded.
* FormerFriendOfAlphaBitch: Becomes this after ''Triangles''.
* HeelFaceTurn: When she realizes that she has feelings for Connor and Nina made her choose between her or him (and, to lesser extent, his friends).

It comes to a head in season three after hearing Alden dedicate a song to Sharon (but only on a professional level because she helped him write it). She forces Alden to un-invite Sharon for a weekend trip to a lake--Sharon didn't get the message thanks to her braces erasing the message on her answering machine. Eventually, however, Alden and Marlo realize its not going to work out and they mutually decide break up.

!! Petra

Nina Harper's cousin from London, England who's basically just a meaner, bitchier version of Nina and the true culprit behind the doll incident that made Nina end her friendship with Sharon Spitz.


* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Likes to claim that she has better taste in fashion than Nina does. On the contrary, Petra's taste in fashion (at least compared to Nina's) is generally more "gaudy" than "stylish."
* DisproportionateRetribution: The only reason Petra had ripped all the heads off of Nina's dolls when they were little kids was simply because they were better dressed than her own dolls.
* EvilBrit: She speaks with a strong British accent, refers to London as her hometown, and, as previously mentioned, is basically just a meaner, bitchier version of Nina.
