I peed alone my whole life...women have always hated me...I don't even know how it started.
— Britta Perry, "Football, Feminism and You".

Britta Perry is a graduate of Greendale Community College. She was born in Riverside, Colorado to George and Deb Perry. Britta has two older brothers, one of whom works with children with some type of special disorder in a hospital. On her eleventh birthday, an eager-handed man in a dinosaur costume intruded in on her party at a restaurant; this event has haunted her into adulthood. She became estranged from her parents due to what she felt was bad parenting. Britta entered a rebellious phase and dropped out of high school because she thought it would impress Radiohead. She joined the Peace Corps, did some foot modeling, attended a world-trade rally where she was tear-gassed, and visited Africa. She also joined several activist groups but her memberships didn't last long. A billboard vandalizing team of radicals kicked her out for not being anarchistic enough despite her success at recruiting new members. She was with a feminist group called the "An-Her-Chists" but it disbanded because everyone involved no longer had the passion for their cause. This made Britta realize she needed to move on as well. After attempting to get a job at Yogurtsburgh, she was inspired by a flyer to enrol at Greendale to find some direction. During her time at Greendale, she became close friends with a Spanish study group she joined and even had romantic relationships with two of its members. She completed four years at school and left her friends and the academic world behind finding employment as a bartender. Sometime after graduating, she later unexpectedly reunited with her study group at Greendale. Britta ultimately decided to re-enroll to pursue her original goal of earning a Psychology degree. Along with her old study group buddies, Britta would later join a special organization dedicated to improving the school called the "Save Greendale Committee".


Britta's claims that other girls have always hated her ("Football, Feminism and You"), and Abed estimates that over 50% of the people who meet her don't like her ("Communication Studies"). Although she aspires to be selfless, she is prone to being vain, preachy, and hypocritical in her actions ("Contemporary American Poultry"), ("Advanced Criminal Law"). Despite her best efforts, when she tries to do good it will usually backfire on her ("Debate 109"). She is distrustful of large organizations, particularly governments and religions (she has identified herself as an atheist ("Comparative Religion"). Britta's constant rants against such institutions annoy everyone in the study group who consider her a buzz-kill ("The Science of Illusion"). She attempts to appear progressive and cool but often comes off as misinformed and pretentious ("Early 21st Century Romanticism"). Her mispronunciation of certain words has caused her to be referred to as "the worst" and made her the butt of many jokes ("Physical Education"). She has a hipster mentality and scorns anything conventional or popular ("The Art of Discourse"). Britta loves cats and has had several including Suzie B who became ill and died whom she later replaced with Daniel who has only one eye ("The Art of Discourse"). Romantically, she found herself drawn to men who are damaged in some way; she admitted it's because she hated herself that she did this ("The Psychology of Letting Go").

In the study group

Britta's original role within the group was to keep them focused on the goal of studying for Spanish without any distractions. Ironically when Annie took over as the taskmaster Britta herself became an increasing distraction. She would interrupt meetings to go on tirades about various injustices occurring in the world. Her uniformed and clueless rants caused her to be mocked within the group. The group would refer to her as "The Worst", a nickname which stuck throughout her time at Greendale. They would also start using her name to mean messing something up.

Jeff (See main article: "Jeff and Britta")
Jeff's romantic pursuit of Britta in their first year at school resulted in the creation of the study group. Initially, they felt a sense of responsibility towards the other members of the study group considered themselves to be their "Greendale parents" but abandoned those roles and just become friends with them. Although they eventually became lovers, they ultimately decided they were better off just being friends. However, they did get "engaged" on three separate occasions.

Britta and Annie are not the closest in the study group but still get along pretty well. In the past they seemingly had similar taste in men which put a strain on the relationship.

IJ Buddy's fantasy
Notable appearances:

In study group's third year at Greendale together, Abed eventually admits to having problems and needing therapy. He asks Britta, who had declared psychology as her major, to help him deal with his issues.
Horror Fiction 7
Notable appearances:
Britta, like the rest of the study group, tolerates Pierce's racist and boorish behavior as much as possible. Often, he will imply or outright call Britta a lesbian, much to her annoyance. In general, Britta tends to feel sorry for Pierce although his attitude makes that difficult. She even attempted to make him feel better by participating in hypnotherapy sessions with him. Pierce on occasion has stood up for Britta, telling Vaughn to lay off her when he wrote a song about her and was shown to be supportive of her when he thought she was coming out of the closet after she befriended a supposedly lesbian student. He also made sure a dance she organized at school was successful by getting Sophie B. Hawkins to perform.

Other notable relationships

Vaughn Miller
In her first year at Greendale, Britta briefly had a relationship with a student named Vaughn Miller. His carefree and non-conformist outlook on life appealed to Britta at the time. Vaughn dumped her after Jeff humiliated him by showing off to the study group a love poem he wrote to Britta. Vaughn got revenge on her by writing a song for his band called "Gettin' Rid of Britta". Later, Britta gave her blessing to Annie to pursue a relationship with Vaughn only to manipulate Jeff into trying to break up the pair. When she saw how much they liked each other she apologized and gave them her full support. At the end of the year Transfer formal dance, she said goodbye to Vaughn and Annie as they headed to go on a trip together for the summer.

Rick and Britta are reunited
Notable appearances:
In her junior year at school, Britta learns that an ex-boyfriend named Blade had returned. She asked for Annie's help to keep her away from him as he had a weird charisma she found irresistible. Later Jeff - having investigated Blade on his own - reveals to her the source of his charm: brain damage. The part of his brain which felt shame was destroyed in a freak accident; as a result, he no longer cares what people think of him. That sort of attitude is irresistible to those that hate themselves like Britta does. Learning this about her ex-boyfriend makes Britta realize she was falling into harmful old patterns. It's then that she starts to consider Troy, who she realized had genuine feelings for her, as a serious romantic possibility.
