The concept for the Veronica Lodge character came from the creator Bob Montana's assignment to do a portrait of a real-life Lodge family. The real Lodges were wealthy and enjoyed the kind of extravagant life that is known to Veronica in the Archie series. Montana came up with Veronica's first name by using the name of eccentric actress Veronica Lake. Veronica appeared in Archie Comics shortly after Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones, Reggie Mantle, and Archie Andrews debuted.
Veronica has been called one of the most beautiful girls in Riverdale, and happens to be blessed with naturally good looks. In the comics, she is described as a brown-eyed brunette (her hair is medium-length with bangs). She stands at about 5'6" and weighs about 120 lbs (the same height and weight as her best friend Betty).
