Elizabeth Kajolica "Bessie" Higgenbottom is the main protagonist. Her lifetime goal is to collect every Honeybee badge to become her alter-ego superhero known as The Mighty B!. She has total devotion to the Honeybees. She currently is living in an apartment above her mom's cafe in San Francisco with her younger brother Ben and her dog and best friend Happy.

Personality

Bessie is often portrayed as a tomboyish, imaginative, ambitious, cute, confident, friendly, naive, spunky, nerdy, and optimistic. young Honeybee scout. She is a devoted member of the Honeybees and has the most badges in Honeybee history. In the episode "Bee Nice", Bessie says her policy is to give kindness, and courtesy to everyone she knows. Bessie can also be naive and sometimes has no backbone until she is driven to the edge.

Bessie is shown to be a bit mature for her age. She can be prone to jealousy as seen in "Boston Bean", where her pen pal Sissy Sullivan displayed more creative talents than her. Her passion being a Honeybee is taffy-selling season (selling the most boxes) and her admiration of Miriam Breedlove.

Bessie always is a strict follower of rules and regulations , especially when carries the Honeybee handbooks. However, she can be overbearing and rude without realizing it, as seen when she was hired to be the apprentice of Mary Frances in "The Apprentice", she never gave her privacy or the chance to relax, and while she was serving Portia and Mary Frances food, she chewed up their food and spat it out, claiming it was "pre-chewed" and served it (with the disgusted faces of Mary Frances and Portia respectively). She also has a complex where she believes she is superior than others, frequently seen on the show overdoing her achievements just to get a badge, or when she shows a competitive spirit to defeat her bestie Penny. There were several times she even forces her brother Ben and her dog Happy to do insane things (at the cost of their health and physical form) just for a badge.

Relationships

Happy

Happy is Bessie's pet dog and her best friend. Despite their first meeting did not go as smoothly in the pilot episode, he and Bessie become best friends. As best friends, they stick together, but also criticize their flaws (ex. Bessie criticizes Happy for being filthy and Happy criticizing her for having him "volunteer" for her badge quests).

Penny Lefcowitz

Penny Wabigal Lefcowitz is Bessie's best long life friend, through-out the show, she mostly goes with Bessie on so many adventures,

Ben Higgenbottom

Ben is Bessie's little brother who hopes that he will become her sidekick when she becomes the Mighty B. So, much to Bessie's dismay, Ben usually tags along with her adventures, but the majority of the time, gets his ideas taken without credit or to be psychically hurt or ill during Bessie's journey to gain her badges. Although he dismays Bessie for her outrageous ideas and obsession of becoming the Mighty B, he still puts up with her shenanigans and loves his sister.

Portia Gibbons

Bessie usually proclaims Portia as a friend when in reality, Portia would usually mess with Bessie. However, Bessie would be too naïve to know that Portia is messing with her.'

Sissy Sullivan

Although the two have a good friendship and have very similar qualities, Sissy has proven to be "superior" to Bessie in terms of her Honeybee hideout, badges, and many other talents. Bessie is actually very envious of Sissy and feels less confident when Sissy is around her fellow Honeybees. Despite Bessie's jealousy, Sissy still helps her with the Taffy sales with just her British accent. She seems to be unaware of Bessie's envy towards her.
