Quendra first appears as Jeff's handpicked candidate for a new member of the study group. Although very pretty, she doesn't appear to be all that bright. Little is else known about her except for the fact that she prefers spelling things with a hard "K" sound with the letter "Q" instead. Her first appearance was in the Season Two episode "Asian Population Studies". She is portrayed by actress Marcy McKusker.
Character HistoryEditWhen Annie nominates her latest crush Rich to become the newest member of the study group, Jeff's jealousy as well as his hatred of Rich causes him to try prevent it from happening. Sensing his real motivations, Annie suggests that they throw a mixer where everyone can bring a potential nominee. They will then choose the new member at the end of the party. Jeff selects Quendra to be his candidate, hoping that her attractiveness will appeal to the male study group members. Despite the obvious coaching he did ahead of time to prepare her, she wasn't ready for Pierce. He demeans her with an indecent proposal, and she leaves in a huff. A very desperate Jeff ends up having to substitute her with Chang as his nomination to the study group. Later in the Season Two finale "For A Few Paintballs More" she is seen fighting alongside the other Greendale students against the invading City College paintball troopers. She is a member of Jeff's squad of students and participates in the attack run to capture the paintball machine gun. Jeff tries to inspire her with a speech but ends up getting shot immediately afterwards. Not long after, she is eliminated as well. After Pierce wins the paintball game for Greendale, Quendra can be seen with Vicky, Garrett, Magnitude and Star-Burns celebrating the victory. She makes an appearance in the Season Three episode "Basic Lupine Urology". Star-Burns is being pursued by Troy and Abed who believe he had something to do with the sabotage of the study group's lab project. He begs her to make out with him, so he can hide from them; she vehemently refuses. Disgusted at his offer, she quickly walks away, leaving Star-Burns to face Trobed alone and thoroughly rejequted with a "QU". In the study group's fourth year at Greendale Quendra was mentioned by Annie as being a teachers assistant for their history Professor Noel Cornwallis. Shirley questions the relationship given Cornwallis' past indiscretions with college coeds ("Intro to Knots"). Quendra later attends a special gathering honoring Jeff Winger who was graduating early that year. His friends in the study group were throwing a special wedding themed ceremony for him in Group Study Room F to mark the occasion. The study group was seated in the grooms section while Quendra was seated in the "brides" section alongside Todd, Leonard, Neil, Vicki, Garrett and Magnitude ("Advanced Introduction to Finality").
