Brad Ralph has a good heart but also has a tendency to let his emotions get the better of him. This usually leads to him making mistakes and lapses in judgment. Examples include thinking so much about getting the Mascot Owl back that he skipped practice with most of the team to try and jump the Owl napper, making fun or Ryan to cover for his own insecurities, and lashing out at Ryan when Ryan unintentionally drew attention to himself with words of prayer and God's will.
Brad is good friends with Ryan Cummings and once had a crush on Valerie Swanson. In his first appearance, he was on the school basketball team but was caught up in the superstition of the missing Owl so much he forgot the basics like teamwork and practice, like the rest of the team. In his second appearance, he resorted to making fun of Ryan in order to cover for his own insecurities of becoming nervous whenever talking in front of Valerie. His final appearance reveals that he, in fact, became team captain of the school team. However, he had a tendency to get jealous at the attention Ryan was drawing by referencing God and prayer but made up with Ryan later.
He apparently has a grandmother who lost her eyelashes in a broiler incident. Any other family he may have is unknown.
