[[folder: Main Characters]]

!Zoey Brooks

* BigSisterInstinct[=/=]MamaBear: Towards Dustin.
* CharacterTitle
* CoolBigSis: To Dustin.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DudeMagnet: Gets played up in the series finale, which is strange because it's rarely an issue in the rest of the series.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: She's quite popular with the guys.

* GoGetterGirl
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* TheHeart: She tends to be the mediator and the voice of reason in her group.
