Emily has been Gwen Tennyson's best friend since kindergarten. She's a paraplegic, and, as a result of her condition, is wheelchair-bound.
Emily is blonde with fair skin and pale blue eyes. She has been seen wearing a white shirt, a red scarf, a black skirt, and black stockings.
Emily and Gwen have been best friends since they were very young, and overall, Emily's a very kind person who cares about Gwen. Though she understands that Gwen's heroics are important, she's bummed that she and Gwen don't get to spend as time together as they used to.
Emily often shares food with Gwen, especially since Gwen sometimes forgets to eat--this includes giving her a bagel for breakfast and a container of yogurt for lunch.
Despite her kind demeanor, she's mad at Gwen's cousin, Ben, after he left her webbed to the top of a 200-foot-high tower as Spidermonkey.
She once went on a date with Gwen's cousin, Ben, who ultimately left Emily (as Spidermonkey) webbed to the top of a 200-foot-high tower above the ground (according to Ben, it was for her own safety and she couldn't have fallen).
Emily appeared in It's Not Easy Being Gwen, giving Gwen (who had missed breakfast) a bagel, and revealing that she had been accepted into a performing arts school. When Ben came to ask Gwen for help fighting Dr. Animo, Emily was unhappy about it, pointing that, because of Gwen's heroics and the two of them doing different activities, they don't get to spend as much time together as they used to.
That night, at her piano recital, she was overjoyed to find that Gwen had come to watch.
