She and Archie Andrews became a couple in kindergarten. During high school, Betty got a feminine makeover at the suggestion of some friends. Archie disliked that she had changed; the two fought (the "lipstick incident") and broke up.
After the break-up, Betty tried to ignore Archie's new relationship with Veronica Lodge. However, it soon became too much for her. She and Jughead tried to get Reggie to tempt Veronica into blowing up at Sheila Wu, a fellow student and aspiring fashion designer who was spying on Archie). However, when Sheila revealed Archie and Veronica broke her creative streak and designed clothes after Archie, Veronica loved the designs and the plan failed. Betty then realized Veronica might be right for Archie.
Betty ended up in a relationship wih Sayid, but it was not a pleasan one. After Sayid saw Archie and Betty reconciling after much avoidance, Sayid got angry. Betty then broke it off with Sayid.
After Veronica was sent to Switzerland, Betty had been trying to get over her failed relationship with Sayid.
It is mentioned that she has a brother.
In the second arc of Vol. 2, Betty tries to stop Archie from street racing in their car with Reggie, and ended up crashing into Reggie's car. Reggie ended up arrested, and Betty was sent into a coma. When she awoke, her legs were paralyzed. Her father, Hal, blamed Archie for the accident and forbade Archie from being near her. Jughead was able to sneak Betty away from the house so that she could meet Archie in secret. Meanwhile, he took the time to give Betty's parents a short but polite speech on how Archie is vital to Betty's recovery, causing Hal to storm out of the room, and Alice to sit down quitely and recover with some ice cream.
After Betty met up with Archie, Betty warns him Hal convinced Alice that the accident was Archie's fault, to which Archie replies "We can't let her know about us." Unbeknownst to them, Veronica was listening, likely mistaking "her"/Alice for herself.
