'''Courtney DiLaurentis'''
 
'''Courtney DiLaurentis'''
 
:Courtney was the leader of the Liars under the assumed identity of Alison DiLaurentis. Her jealous twin sister, the "real" Alison DiLaurentis threatened her since childhood (despite their initial friendship), forcing Courtney to impersonate her, so she would seem crazy and therefore, be sent to a psych ward. Courtney tried to get the doctors to understand that she had been blackmailed by her sister, but they didn't believe her when Alison acted innocently and denied Courtney's confessions. In the outcome, Ali's master plan worked: Courtney was believed to be a paranoid schizophrenic. In the beginning of Alison's sixth grade, Courtney successfully tricked their mother Jessica into taking Ali to the mental hospital. In the aftermath, Courtney took her sister's place, pretending to be Alison, so that she won't be recognized as Courtney and therefore end up in a mental hospital; she became Ali. Even though Courtney was mean to everyone in school, she didn't want to be, because she only did it because she was pretending to be Alison. If she acted nicer to people, her family would notice the change, so Courtney always acted wrong despite her being good. She did tease the Liars but she secretly appreciated them. Later on, her sister Alison came back for her revenge and killed Courtney by pushing her into a hole that was originally made for a gazebo, accompanied by an unknown person who was later revealed to be Nick. It is known that Courtney knew that person and was betrayed.
