Eric Forrester: Patriarch(John McCook) has stood at the head of the family since B&B’s debut episode. (Eric has also made crossover appearances on B&B’s sister soap, The Young and the Restless.) Married and divorced numerous times to a number of women, his true soulmate was Stephanie (Susan Flannery), with whom he co-founded Forrester Creations;
Stephanie "Steffy" Forrester: (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is Ridge’s daughter from his marriage to Taylor Hayes. Considered by many to be a spoiled diva, Steffy has actually suffered more than her fair share of losses: she felt neglected by her father for years, spent some of her childhood motherless when Taylor was presumed dead, was shipped off to boarding school for years, and her twin sister, Phoebe, died in a car accident.
Ivy Forrester: (Ashleigh Brewwer) is Eric’s niece, the younger daughter of his rarely-seen brother John (Fred Willard). Ivy, who grew up in Australia, joined the family business when she was invited by Eric and Rick to come to Los Angeles and work for the company’s new jewelry design collection, Hope for the Future (HFTF). More successful in her work than her love life, Ivy got caught in the middle of a love triangle involving Steffy and Liam Spencer, and the situation came to a head when Ivy discovered she was actually in the States illegally. Liam married her to avoid deportation. Although Ivy had genuine feelings for Liam, the marriage didn’t last and he went back to Steffy. Ivy has found consolation in the arms of Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks), a relationship that began professionally but has turned romantic.
