A few exceptions to this during high school were the competitive ice skater, Tricia, and Emily Valentine, with whom he would later reconnect briefly.
Through all of this, and the unfamiliar extremes Beverly Hills conflicts presented the boy scout with, Brandon relies on his close bond with his twin sister, Brenda, in many ways the most enduring friendship he experiences on the series, as Brandon is rarely vulnerable or seeking support from his other friends.
Brandon was the last Walsh to leave his family's iconic home in Beverly Hills.
Brandon, akin to Andrea, would always hold a high standard of morality, at times coming off as moral righteousness or superiority, but would learn from these mistakes and admit his wrongs.
Brandon's sister Brenda was also shown to harbor a particular fondness for his character at times, openly telling him at one point that he truly was her best friend.
In response, Brandon stated that he hoped he always would be.
