While their bond was nearly destroyed during the pillow-blanket fort campus "war" of in " Pillows and Blankets ", quick thinking from Jeff Winger and imaginary "friendship hats" ultimately saved the day, though it also became plain that there are serious and deep differences between Troy and his best friend.
Instead of being Abed's roommate for their sophomore year, Troy decides to live in Pierce's mansion " Pascal's Triangle Revisited ". Because Pierce has old-school, homogenizing racism issues, Troy initially needs to assert that Shirley is not his mother, but later asserts that Shirley isn't his cousin.

His father founded Hawthorne Wipes, the award-winning moist towelette company. Much older than most Greendale students, he is often confused by youth culture while still trying to embrace it. He also unknowingly buys into many sexist and racist stereotypes which often lead him to make offensive statements, the nature of which he's completely unaware.
Much of this is directed at Shirley, whom he sometimes mistakes for other black women " The Art of Discourse " ; Abed, whom he suspects being a terrorist because he is Muslim ; and Jeff, whom he actively tries to roast in an attempt to be cool, despite his inability to do so with wit. This leads Troy to start up a Twitter account withfollowers called "oldwhitemansays" " Anthropology "documenting anything controversial said by Pierce. When he finds out, he is furious at Troy until Troy reveals the number of followers, prompting Pierce to encourage Troy to keep the account going.
After his behavior became merciless in Season 2, the study group put Pierce on a "diet" with a strict limit on when and how often he can say offensive things. It is also suspected that he has subdued feelings for the second youngest female in the group, Britta Perry.
Given his age and his eccentricity, Pierce occasionally surprises his friends with wise insight and advice when they truly need it. Though he considers himself to be a "Reformed Neo- Buddhist ," he is actually a member of an obscure religious cult. In Season 1's " The Science of Illusion ," the group tricks him into dressing as the Cookie Crisp Wizard in order to achieve a level of ascension in his cult. His religion also plays an important role when his mother dies in the Season 2 episode " The Psychology of Letting Go " and Pierce believes his "Buddhist" teachings that she will be reborn, carrying a canister of what he thinks is his mother's soul around.
When, along with Jeff and Troy, he listens to a CD made by his mother telling him she's gone and encouraging him to let her go and live his life, Pierce simply shrugs it off as her losing her mind.

At the same time, Jeff decides he's better off with that rationale and lets him continue with his belief. Pierce has been married seven times and has thirty-two "ex-stepchildren" he tries to be close with, though most of them either avoid him or take advantage of him for his wealth.
He is the author of Greendale's unusual school song and was for a brief time a member of Vaughn's band. He is also severely claustrophobic. Because of his moist towelette business, Pierce is very wealthy and owns a mansion, where Troy also lives over the summer and during the second year.
It has been shown that Pierce may often act out due to the lack of attention and love his father, also a business tycoon, showed him as a child. His father even went to the extent of hiring another boy to play Pierce in a commercial while scorning and putting down the real Pierce " Celebrity Pharmacology ". In Season 2, Pierce becomes more agitated at the study group for leaving him out of their activities. He temporarily joins an elderly group of students who act like teenagers called the Hipsters, to feel accepted " Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples ".
He breaks both of his legs in a trampoline accident after revealing a secret trampoline Jeff and Troy were hiding " Aerodynamics of Gender ".
To move around, he buys himself an ineffective wheelchair powered by his breath, for which he claims to have outbid three hospitals. After this, he grows dependent on his painkillers and also becomes increasingly at odds with the study group because of the combination of his heartless behavior and their tendency to exclude him from their activities. He begins to play the role of the study group's villain but both trends seem to subside when he comes to terms with the group after overdosing on his painkillers.
These underlying tensions come to a head in " A Fistful of Paintballs ," when it's revealed that the other members of the group secretly took a vote about whether they'd include him in the group next year, with only Annie voting to keep him in; by the end of " For a Few Paintballs More ," while the other group members have reconsidered and are willing to let him back in the group, Pierce says he's not interested in staying with "whatever this is".
He also tells the group that he assumes all of his relationships will end, which is why he constantly tests and provokes people, and why all seven of his marriages failed and he had never kept a group of friends at Greendale for longer than a semester until he joined the study group. However, at the start of Season 3, he promptly returns and rejoins the study group, having regained an overall center of relaxation. Having always sought the approval of his even more bigoted father, Cornelius Hawthorne Larry Cedarhe becomes more uncooperative after his death " Advanced Gay ".
After the board of Hawthorne Wipes subsequently fires him, he tries to open up a sandwich shop on campus with Shirley. The space for the sandwich shop is rented out instead to Subway and together, Pierce and Shirley work together to sabotage the Subway restaurant.
In "Curriculum Unavailable" Shirley delivers a speech against the Subway restaurant and it is destroyed in the ensuing riot. In "Introduction to Finality," Dean Pelton then offers the space to Shirley and Pierce, but because there is only one signature space, Pierce and Shirley file suit for the rights to the sandwich shop. He later appears in a cameo during the Season 5 premiere, " Repilot ," as a pre-recorded holographic projection in a courtyard at Greendale.
It is revealed that the hologram was donated in compliance with a court order he was "not allowed to discuss" and that he has "no legal right" to be on the Greendale campus as a result of the lawsuit. In the Season 5 episode " Basic Intergluteal Numismatics ", Shirley reveals that Pierce has died; in the following episode, " Cooperative Polygraphy ," the group is forced to take a lie detector test in compliance with Pierce's will to prove that none of them murdered him.
He leaves the group bittersweet parting words and generous gifts. He leaves Shirley his timeshare in Florida. He also leaves each member of the study group a cylinder of his frozen sperm should they like to continue his legacy, the filling of which is revealed to have caused his death. Jim Rash Dean Craig Isadore Pelton Jim Rash recurring seasons 1—2, starring season 3—6 was an educator at Greendale for ten years, after or during which he earned a Bachelor of Education degree at the fictional Appomattox University, and has been Dean for five years.
He is described as politically correctmade evident when he changed the college mascot from the Greendale Grizzlies to the Greendale Human Beings in " Football, Feminism and You "; Pelton's politically-incorrect explanation for the change was that "most of these people have been called animals their entire lives".
Pelton has displayed a number of quirks and eccentricities regarding his sexual orientation.
He is described by Vice Dean Laybourne as a " pansexual imp" " Biology "and when once called a " fruit " by student Leonard " Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples "Pelton mentioned offhandedly that the term was "barely the whole truth.
It is implied that Pelton has also used Greendale's fountain where students throw coins and make wishes to make wishes regarding Jeff, and he is shown to have adopted a litter of kittens in one episode, two of which he named "Jeffrey". Pelton has also displayed various fetishesthe most prominent being his increasing fascination with men dressed in Dalmatian costumes during the first season, after he sees an internet video-clip featuring a man dressed in such a costume.
He has also taken a habit of dressing in elaborate costume, often when going to visit the study-group. These costumes have included Tina TurnerJulius Caesar and other famous figures, in addition to more abstract costumes, such as one that was half-male and half-female.
Despite his ongoing over-the-top behavior, Pelton has on occasion shown some traces of self-doubt and confusion, once even questioning his life choices after realizing that he had gone "too far" with one of his costumes after realizing he was going to have to wear it during a trip to the bank that day, commenting to himself that he needs to "get [his] life together". In the season six episode "Queer Studies and Advanced Waxing," Dean Pelton is recruited to the schoolboard as a token homosexual, but reveals himself as being "two-sevenths gay" and resumes his job as dean after the charade becomes too much to handle.
Thereafter, he is seen more often with the group on their non-Greendale adventures, and in "Basic RV Repair and Palmistry," his friendship with the group is solidified.
At the end of the first season, however, it is revealed that he does not actually have any teaching qualifications and that, like Jeff, he will have to attend Greendale as a student in order to get a degree. He can be quite theatrical at times once even faking his own death to get a rise out of his students and also has a huge ego.
His anger management issues are constantly evident, and he acts in mean spirited ways with very little stimulus; during his classes, he frequently picked on Annie for apparently no reason other than her desk was closest to where he stood while addressing his students.
It is made clear in multiple episodes that he initially takes certain situations far too seriously: In "Modern Warfare", he tries to eliminate Jeff and Britta by shooting at them with an automatic paintball gun, and later activates a bomb of paint hidden in his jacket to try to eliminate Jeff. In " Competitive Ecology ," he claims to be a "detective" of the school after being on the Security team for a month, and starts hunting for clues to solve a "case" after meeting a distressed student which in reality was just a coincidence and later burns down a section of the school while doing so.
These over-the-top personality traits veil deep issues of being left by his wife, with whom he was later reunited, although this did not hinder his rash behavior towards his students afterward.
Chang has an antagonistic relationship with almost every student and faculty member at Greendale. In the first-season finale, Chang and Duncan come to blows when Chang becomes a student and Duncan is suspended from teaching, resulting in a physical battle at the end-of-the-year dance. Though Duncan gets a restraining order against him, Chang in turn nullifies this by getting a restraining order against Duncan, thus allowing him to take his anthropology class. They seem to have formed a grudging respect for each other since.
Chang on several occasions has claimed to have eaten his twin sister Connie in utero. He enjoys jetting around on a scooterplays the keytar as an instrument, and has a history of having his clothes stolen from the local YMCA. According to Chang in "Modern Warfare", he plays paintball three times a week, and he uses his skill in the sport against Jeff and Britta.
In light of these harsh circumstances, unintentional neglect allowed her free reign over the most impoverished streets of Chelsea. Eventually, Annie and her father moved in with relatives, and by the time she became of age, she took on work as a barmaid at a local pub. This location may have been where she first met the artist William Holman Hunt, although some speculate that he might have known about her existence beforehand while growing up on the streets, running rampant, dirty and wild.
Unbeknownst to Annie, their meeting was the beginning of what most would consider a very fortunate, yet tumultuous relationship.
She looked more beautiful than ever He invested in her, taking the painstaking steps of molding her into the respectful version of a woman who he had hoped for, on and off the canvas, enhancing her appearance with feminine finery and spared no expense by giving her a proper education. InHunt traveled to the Palestinian Holy Land, leaving Annie with strict instruction in the form of a list of trusted fellow artists she was allowed to work with like John Everett Millais.
However, not on his list were no other than Dante Gabriel Rossetti and George Price Boyce, both known to be ardent womanizers. Little did Hunt know that Annie shrugged off his possessive demands thanks to her free-minded spirit and iron will to do as she pleased. When Hunt returned from his two-year stint, he found that everything he had counted on involving Annie had backfired on him.
Not only had she fallen in league with Rossetti and Boyce whom he had warned her aboutbut she had also taken up with the questionable company of Lord Ranelagh, a notorious womanizer known throughout London's high society. Rumors had circled that she had been seen in the Chelsea Pleasure Gardens with Rossetti, or strolling on the arm of Boyce, and possibly having an illicit affair with Ranelagh.
Altogether incensed, Hunt had had enough of Annie's gallivanting and called off their relationship and financial support. His fury did not stop at just ending his ties.
