History: Rachel grew up under the shadow of her father, Robert Zane, a skilled lawyer and name partner of Rand, Calder & Zane. Despite her family’s wealth, she prefers to live on the money that she earns. Despite her own ability, Rachel has never been good with taking tests, so she never gets a high enough LSAT score for Harvard. Unable to get into law school, she decided to begin working as a paralegal at Pearson Hardman. Because of this, Robert began to doubt Rachel’s capabilities as a lawyer.

At one point, Rachel dated Colin McCarthy, a first year associate. In the end, Rachel broke up with him and his performance began to drop until, two months later, he was fired. Since then, Rachel has decided to not date someone from the office… until she meets Mike.
