Introduction

Emily is a recurring character in BoJack Horseman. She is Todd Chavez's high school ex-girlfriend and best friend. She was first briefly seen in a flashback in Zoës and Zeldas, in Season 1. Her first major appearance was in the Season 3 flashback episode The BoJack Horseman Show, with her first present day appearance being later in the season in Love And/Or Marriage.

Physical Appearance[]

Emily is an adult human female with an olive skin tone and above the shoulder length red hair, with bangs going across her forehead. She has black eyebrows and freckles on her cheeks and nose.

She is shown wearing a light lavender long-sleeved shirt with a black pattern that somewhat resemble paint brush strokes, light blue jeans, one piercing in her left ear, and white sneakers.

As a teenager in 2007, she wore a cropped sports t-shirt with a blue neckline and blue trim on the sleeves, a yellow beanie (which is currently owned by Todd), a pair of navy cameo knee-length shorts, a dark grey belt, and white sneakers.

Personality[]

Emily is usually a laidback, friendly, and caring person overall. Being more driven and organized than Todd, she is able to build on Todd's ideas and help them come to fruition.

She is also sexually active and openly discusses her experiences and preferences. In Love And/Or Marriage, it is revealed that when she was a child, she used to rock back and forth with a teddy bear in between her legs. When Todd acted strangely and rejected her sexual advances, she ended up sleeping with his best friend BoJack Horseman, which she later came to regret and confessed to Todd. When Todd came out as asexual, she was supportive, but decided not to pursue a romantic relationship with him since she wanted a partner who was interested in sex.

Emily also appears to be very technology savvy, as she created her own lineup of mobile apps through her business EmilyApps, including All About That Ace, the asexual dating app where Todd met his girlfriend Maude.

Background[]

History[]

Emily became friends with Todd when they were teenagers. They were friends before Halloween of 2004.

In 2007, the two have their first kiss with each other, while playing Seven Minutes in Heaven at a party. They become a couple afterward, despite Emily saying previously that her strict dad, whose job is related to The Sopranos—doesn't what her to date.

Months later, while the two are in her parents' bedroom, they almost have sex, despite Todd's hesitance. They are interrupted when Emily hears her dad coming home.

Todd panics, because he thinks that her dad is a mob boss because she said he's like the guy on The Sopranos. However, Emily reveals she actually meant he's an editor.
