Ali's Pretty Little Lies
Hanna Marin is one of the four main characters of the Pretty Little Liars book series created by the author Sara Shepard. She is portrayed by Sarah Dewey on the book covers.
Hanna has been characterized as being extremely beautiful, but very insecure. She developed bulimia and first purged when she was visiting her dad, his new wife, and his new stepdaughter in Annapolis using her stepsister Kate's toothbrush. Hanna used to feel like a hanger-on, someone who wasn't exactly welcome among the popular girls. Hanna also felt overwhelmed by her parents' divorce and used by her friends. This was before a major self-makeover helped propel Hanna and her friend, Mona Vanderwaal, to their rightful place as Rosewood Day's queen bees, with her own Amex, long auburn hair and flawless skin.
Hanna is a typical, popular, mean girl after her transformation. She's a little bitchy but also has a soft side. During her chubby days she was extremely insecure and sweet.
- Distinctive feature: Size 2—with size twelve insecurities
- Known for: Shoplifting, impeccable style, and rising from obscurity to popularity
- Favorite things: Her dog named Dot and shopping
- Biggest regret: Her chubby, loser past
- Worst offense: Her car accident with Madison
- Nickname: "Chubby Couture" and "Hanna Fat-assa" (given by "Alison")
- Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
Hanna wasn't always gorgeous; in her younger years, she was exceptionally chubby. Alongside Spencer Hastings, Emily Fields, and Aria Montgomery, she acted as the lackey of the most popular girl in Rosewood Day, "Alison" DiLaurentis. Her father had left her and her mother for another woman named Isabel Randall, and her daughter, Kate. Once, during a visit with Ali to visit Hanna's dad in Annapolis, Hanna binged after feeling abandoned by Ali, who had created an "instant pretty-girl bond" with Kate. After a comment from her father about her weight, Hanna went to the bathroom, purging with Kate's toothbrush. Ali had walked in on Hanna purging and preceded to hold the event over Hanna's head every opportunity she got. After Ali's disappearance, Hanna's friendships with Spencer, Aria, and Emily faded away.
In the ninth grade, Hanna tried out for cheerleading, but didn't make it, since the cheerleaders considered her too fat and not pretty enough. Hanna and Mona Vanderwaal, a girl that Hanna and her friends used to make fun of for being dorky, decided to become skinny and pretty before the next year's cheerleading tryouts. They bonded and became pretty and popular, eventually deciding that cheerleading wasn't even cool enough to try out for. Hanna took over Alison's spot as "queen bee" after her disappearance. Within that time, Hanna and Mona also became shoplifters. When Hanna is caught by the police after a spree at Tiffany's, she begins to spiral downwards as "A" taunts Hanna about food, prison, and her dad. She starts to binge and purge again and steals her boyfriend Sean's dad's car and crashes it. Hanna is then forced to volunteer at Sean's dad's burn clinic, Bill Beach, as punishment.
The car accident causes her father to visit. Hanna and her dad begin to bond again, but Hanna is devastated when a weekend she thought was going to be just her and her dad is ruined by Kate and Isabel. Kate lies to Hanna and destroys her new relationship with her dad by spotting pills that Hanna stole from Bill Beach and asking for some, pretending that she was on Hanna's side, only for Kate to turn around and tell Mr. Marin about the pills. Hanna was also sent to a clinic because of Kate telling her date Hanna's recovery, where Spencer becomes suspicious that her sister is Ali's killer. Spencer and Mona drive to the Police Station, and Hanna then remembers who "A" is - Mona. She goes to the police station and tells Darren Wilden, who rushes to Floating Man's Quarry with her and her old friends. Hanna sees Spencer, who reveals that Mona tried to kill her and in the struggle, fell off the cliff and died.
Hanna later found herself in a relationship with Mike Montgomery, Aria's younger brother, after seeing Kate go after him as of her move to Rosewood. Hanna fought for him out of pure jealousy and won, but later she realizes that she actually liked him. Hanna is always trying to overthrow Kate every chance she gets, until finally embarrassing her in front of most of the school. After this, Hanna's dad forces them to spend time with each other, which to no avail.
She is soon placed in a mental institute (Hanna's dad receives a letter about Hanna suffering from trauma) called The Preserve at Addison-Stevens, while everyone is told that she is actually visiting her mother at Singapore. here she meets Iris, a girl who oozes beauty and confidence. The two became fast friends after Hanna ditches the first few girls who were nice to her. It is shown that Iris used to know Alison (or "Courtney"). It is also implied that Iris may have betrayed Hanna by telling the press where she really is.
After being released from the institution, Hanna discovers that Ali had a twin named Courtney after a huge announcement by her mom. Courtney tried to be friends and compliments Hanna every chance she gets. Unlike Alison, Courtney made Hanna feel pretty. However, Courtney showed her true colors after inviting the group to a Lake House. There, she reveals that she is actually Ali, and the girl Hanna was friends with as a kid was Courtney pretending to be her.
Ali tried to kill them all in a fire, but became the only one caught in it and is presumed dead from the blaze. After the drama ends, Hanna's mom returned and kicked Hanna's dad out for sending Hanna to a mental institution. She then laid down rules for Hanna, which suggested that she would try to be a better parent.
During spring break in her junior year, Hanna met a girl at a resort in Jamaica with the other four. The girl said her name is Tabitha.
Mike told Hanna that he thought the resort photographer was sketchy, but Hanna's enormous ego refuses to let her believe this, and the two break up a result. However, Mike turned out to be right. The photographer caught a few sleazy shots of Hanna and threatened to release them to the public, which would potentially ruin Hanna's reputation and her dad's campaign, unless she came up with $10,000. Meanwhile, Hanna had been receiving texts from "A" again, and "A" claims to know about Tabitha. An also kept up with his/her old tricks, stalking Hanna and tormenting her with her mistakes, which also happened to bring the girls a little closer together.
After Jeremiah, the campaign manager, receives a letter from the photographer hinting to her photos, he threatens her, and an idea forms in her head. She steals $10,000 from her father's campaign's petty cash and drops Jeremiah's stolen money clip, his initials engraved, right in front of the safe. Kate must have told her father that Hanna had been up there during the robbery, because he interrogates her about the night. She tells him that she saw Jeremiah sneak up there (truth), and cries tears to make it more convincing. Her dad apologizes, fires Jeremiah, and starts doing his best to bond with Hanna.
After another threatening encounter with Jeremiah, Hanna receives another note from A, which tells her to turn on the news. Her and the others watch a news segment togther, and what they see brings them to tears. A girl's body had finally washed up on the shores of Jamaica, and her name was Tabitha Clark.
In Stunning Hanna tries to win back Mike who is now dating Colleen, a pretty sophomore who idolized and was ignored by Hanna and Mona back when she was a freshman. Goaded by A, Hanna begins stalking Colleen trying to find out her secret and finally discovers it, a Latvian laxative commercial. She is unable to go through with posting the video but A posts a video of her stalking Colleen, causing everyone to laugh at her. Mike on the other hand, is impressed by the lengths that Hanna went to get him back and breaks up with Colleeen and goes back to Hanna.
In Burned she's on school cruise where her secret about Madsion haunts esepically when she finds out Naomi is her cousin and Hanna is left with the impressive that Madsion died leaving Naomi wanting revenge as A. She's wary of her, but becomes hangs with her on the ship. Hanna confess her wrongdoing to Naomi after the ship sinks due to an bomb in the boiler room. Naomi is left by this shocked by this and tells Hanna they're even. Also they were never friends.
In Crushed, she worked at burn clinic to get closer to Graham who was in intensive care from his injuries he got from the explosive on the cruise ship they were on. She tries to get information out of him, but he dies before she gets more. The information she gets leads her to think Noel was the one behind the cruise ship diaster and is A. However she's proven wrong when they find his body.
In Deadly, Hanna and Mike lose their virginities to each other. She, along with the other Pretty Little Liars, were framed for Tabitha Clark's murder with an anonymous video of four girls, who bear a striking resemblence to the liars, beating a girl to death. They spend their last month before being shipped of to Jamaica to have a trial trying to find A and Alison in order to prove their innocence. They come face to face with A, who is revealed to be Nick/Tripp/Phineas/Derrick/Patrick/Olaf. They also come face to face with Alison. They are almost killed by the pair when the police arrive and find them, without Ali. The Liars decide that Ali will find them someday. Perhaps sooner than later.
Hanna: Nice try, but hell has to freeze over before you get me into that stuff.
Hanna: Well, it’s official. My dad’s running for Senate. This dork on his campaign staff is already asking to meet with me when I get back.
Mike: Can I be your personal Secret Service agent?
