I don't want to be a Lima Loser for the rest of my life
Clique: New Directions Alumni
Talents: Singing, playing the drums
Strengths: Sticking up for the little guy (he has never slushied any of the Gleeks and often defends them from his teammates), leadership
Other: A "mama's boy", often looks to Will as a father figure
Finn is the epitome of the all-American boy: handsome, quarterback of the football team and cheerleader girlfriend - but there's lots more to him than that. His father died fighting a war in the Middle East, leaving him to be raised by his mom, Carole. He discovered a love of music as a boy thanks to a lawncare specialist and was recruited into the glee club by Will under unusual circumstances after he discovered Finn singing in the boys' locker room showers.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and is not afraid to tell someone how he feels, especially around certain subjects and situations. He will often go to Will for advice when he needs it, because he greatly looks up to the teacher and sees him as a father figure. Recently, his mother got married to Burt Hummel, giving him a stepfather as well as a brother in fellow glee club member Kurt.
If Will is the heart of New Directions, then Finn is its soul
Looking to change his late father's discharge status, Finn enrolled in the army but was discharged and is now attending the University of Lima pursuing his teaching degree, having volunteered as the glee club's interim coach while Will was away in Washington
