The Heathers are Westerburg High Schools most popular clique. The group consists of the three Heathers, aptly named Heather Chandler, Heather Duke, and Heather McNamara, and one non-Heather member, Veronica Sawyer. These four girls are among the wealthiest and most powerful students in their school.


The Heathers clique originally consisted of only the three Heathers. Veronica requested to join the the Heathers clique before the movie started, apparently for the sole purpose of gaining power.


Heather Chandler

Former leader of the Heathers clique before her untimely death the morning after the Remington University party. She gave permission to Veronica Sawyer to become a part of her group and appeared to be closer to Veronica than she was to the other two Heathers. Heather Chandler’s color is red, which symbolizes her power as leader of the Heathers.

Heather Duke

The newest leader of the Heathers clique after Heather Chandler's death. She was childhood friends with Martha "Dumptruck" Dunnstock, much to her embarrassment. Heather Duke's color is green, which symbolizes her envy of Heather Chandler's power over the school.

Heather McNamara

Unlucky and weakwilled, she is the head cheerleader at Westerburg High. She was the girlfriend of Ram Sweeney until his death, which prompts her to attempt suicide but is stopped by Veronica Sawyer. Heather McNamara's color is yellow, which symbolizes her cautious nature.

Veronica Sawyer

The only non-Heather member of the popular clique, she was involved in the "suicide" of Heather Chandler, Ram Sweeney, and Kurt Kelly. After J.D.'s suicide, she takes Heather Chandler's red scrunchie from Heather Duke and claims, "There's a new sheriff in town." Veronica Sawyer's color is blue, which symbolizes order.
