Mía Colucci Cáceres
- Played by: Anahi
Mía Colucci Caceres is Franco Colucci's only daughter with his first wife, Marina Caceres. The most popular girl at Elite Way School, she comes from a wealthy and privileged family who lives in Mexico City. Spoiled and self-centered, she however can be very loyal, attentive and tender towards those she loves. Her best friends are Celina and Victoria "Vico", but she's also very close friends with Lupita and Roberta. Mía starts RBD with her boyfriend Miguel and their friends Roberta, Diego, Giovanni and Lupita, and acts as a songwriter for the band. She also loves fashion and acts as a stylist for her friends.
Mía falls in love with Miguel at first sight, but keeps quiet, since he starts dating her friend Celina. However, Mía is unaware that Miguel came to Elite Way in an attempt to grow close to her in order to exact revenge on her father, Franco, who Miguel holds responsible for his father's death. Despite her strong feelings for Miguel, Mía and Miguel argue constantly when they first meet. During this time, Mía starts a relationship with Gastón, who works at the school and, knowing Mía and Miguel are interested in each other, tries hard to turn them against each other. Miguel is aware of Mía's relationship with Gastón and helps them protect their secret by telling Franco that he's dating Mía when Franco finds out about his daughter dating an older man who works at her school, even kissing her in front of her father, Gastón and the school's principal.
They start dating later on and declare their love for each other, with Miguel growing increasingly divided between going through with his plans and letting go of his past and moving on with Mía. However, Mía uncovers the truth about Miguel's real reasons to approach her and, devastated, breaks up with Miguel. It is later revealed that Miguel's father's death was caused by Mía's Uncle Carlo. Miguel apologizes to Mía and her father and puts his past behind him. In the first season's finale, Mía surprises Miguel by joining him on his flight to Monterrey, where his family is originally from.
The second season their relationship is more unified than ever, with only a few bumpy roads. The couple takes a romantic trip to Cancun, and grows closer when stranded in an island.
In the third season, problems hit the couple's path in the shape of Sabrina. Sabrina is the spoiled daughter of RBD's producer whose crush on Miguel knows no boundaries. Sabrina's persistence in flirting with Miguel makes Mía jealous and puts a strain in their relationship; they eventually break up when Sabrina tells everyone she and Miguel slept together. In truth, Miguel got drunk and fell asleep; Sabrina snuck into his bed barely clothed and when he woke up told him they had sex.
After their breakup, Mía grows deeply depressed. However, she finds comfort in her newfound friendship with Roberta, who is going through a similar rough patch with Diego and her mother. The two girls, who were at odds when they first met, grow close and start caring sincerely about each other.
While struggling to come to terms with the end of her relationship with Miguel, Mía finds out that, instead of dying in a car crash like Franco told Mía, her mother is actually alive. Marina left her husband and toddler Mía because she was addicted, but, now that she has recovered from her issues, she's back and wants a relationship with her daughter. At first, Mía is hurt and resentful that her father has lied to her about her mother for most of her life, but eventually understands that Franco did that out of love for her, trying to protect her from hurt and pain. Mía and Marina slowly form a relationship, bonding over the fact that Marina was also a singer when she was young, having passed her talent and love for the stage to her daughter.
Near the end of the series, the truth between Miguel and Sabrina is revealed. However, since Miguel's in a coma, Mía blames herself for her harsh treatment of her boyfriend and pleads with him to wake up and come back to her. He eventually does during one of her daily visits to him but, as a consequence of his coma, he has memory problems and can only remember he has a girlfriend. When Mía asks him who is his girlfriend's name, he mistakenly says Sabrina, leaving Mía once again heartbroken and depressed. He finally remembers everything about Mía and their relationship during a RBD concert, while Mía's singing 'Sálvame', a song she wrote for him, but Miguel has decided to leave Mexico City and go back to his family in Monterrey. They finally talk when he's finishing packing for his trip, with Miguel telling Mía that her song brought his memory back. Mía tearfully pleads with Miguel not to leave, saying she can't live without him; Miguel starts crying and they kiss, finally making up for good.
Mía's family grows in the end of the series: Franco marries Roberta's mother Alma, and together they adopt Roberta's best friend Jose Luján. Miguel proposes to Mía before the graduation ceremony at Elite Way, asking her if she accepts being with him forever. She happily accepts, and later tells him she's ready to have her first time with him.
Roberta Alejandra María Pardo Rey Reverte Colucci
- Played by: Dulce Maria
Most likely the most rebellious student in Elite Way, Roberta is the only daughter of Alma Rey (Ninel Conde), a famous singer who gave birth to Roberta when she was very young, supposedly with her first husband, Mr. Pardo. However, Roberta eventually finds out that her biological father is Martín Reverte, a teacher at Elite Way, who joined the school in order to find his child. Roberta is a reckless, strong young girl with a short temper and a big heart. She has the tendency to find problem wherever she goes, not only for herself, but for others too, but she always finds inventive ways to work her problems out. She's the co-female lead of RBD along with Mía, with whom she at first has a difficult and conflicted relationship (Roberta thinks Mía's too ditzy, dumb and shallow). Her best friends are her roommates, Lupita and Jose Luján.
Roberta recruits a popular and handsome classmate, Diego Bustamante, to the band she's forming with Mía, Miguel, Lupita and Giovanni, but, in order to keep Diego's father León from finding out about the band, and to give Roberta an excuse to blow her mother off, they pretend they're dating. However, her strong personality and short fuses lead to a volatile relationship, with Roberta and Diego fighting a lot and hating each other. But, eventually, they fall deeply in love, although they both fight against their feelings and refuse to admit to it. They finally start dating for real, but eventually break up.
In season one, Roberta leaves against her will for a month in Spain with her adoptive father and is angry at herself when she spends a lot of time thinking about Diego. However, when she comes back, Diego has a new girlfriend: Paola, who really is a prostitute hired by León Bustamante to keep Diego away from Roberta, who León sees as inadequate for his son. After Diego breaks up with Paola, he makes a bet with his friends that he'll get Roberta to date him, and is successful. His friend Tomás tells Roberta the truth, and she dumps him, furious and heartbroken with his lie. However, Diego has sincerely fallen in love with Roberta during their relationship and tells her so, but she doesn't believe him.
To get Diego out of her head and her heart, Roberta becomes a serial dater throughout the series: she has relationships with Joquin, Teo, Simon, Roger, Iñaki and Javier, who is Diego's nemesis and León's girlfriend's son. Javier actually helps León keep Diego away from Roberta, although he claims he wants to date her only to break her heart, since she publicly humiliated him by turning him down. However, during this time Roberta and Diego become real friends, with Roberta helping Diego sort out his issues and solve his problems. Diego is outspoken about his love for Roberta, telling her he loves her whenever he has a chance; Roberta, however, won't confess to feeling the same.
During the third season, Roberta and Alma's unstable relationship explodes when Martín Reverte is revealed as Roberta's father. Roberta finally admits she's hurt that her mother was always away, working, when she was a child, and didn't have time to be with her. She also admits that she was hurt that Alma acted more as a sister than as a mother when she was growing up. However, with Martín's help, she starts realizing that her mother truly loves her, and did everything there was in her power to give her the best life she could.
It's during this time that Roberta finally becomes friends with Mía, with Mía telling Roberta Alma and Franco are dating (and plan on marrying), and Roberta comforting Mía during her relationship problems with Miguel. It's Roberta who explains to Miguel why Mía was so hurt when Miguel said his girlfriend was Sabrina (after waking up from his coma). After a rocky patch in their relationship (Jose was jealous of Roberta having a growing family), best friends Roberta and Jose finally work out their problems and become family when Alma and Franco decide to adopt Jose.
Roberta also helps Diego break free of León's toxic influence and orchestrates Diego's mother Mabel's return from abroad. León forced Mabel to abandon their house and their son, and Roberta secretly works to bring Mabel back to Diego's life. When Roberta tells him what she has done, he's stunned and demands her reasons for it. Roberta finally admits that she did it because she loves him, and they make up for good. During the graduation after-party, Roberta and Diego discuss their nervousness about sex, with Diego anxious because Roberta's supposedly more experienced than he is (he has some experience, but she has dated more than he has). Roberta shyly admits she's a virgin, and the couple happily decides to take their time before that step.

Guadalupe "Lupita" Fernandez is the good-girl-next-door in the series. She's shy, sweet and tries to be nice and friendly to everyone. She always chooses to do what is right. Her family is lower middle class, and she's at Elite Way thanks to a scholarship obtained to her by her aunt, who works at the school's cafeteria. Lupita gets along well with everyone, being close friends with Mía and best friends and roommates with Roberta and Jose Luján.
Lupita's character is reportedly inspired partially on a friend of the writers, named Lupita Martínez.
Lupita is sweet and quiet, but she has a complicated relationship with family and puts too much pressure on herself because of her scholarship and because she doesn't want to disappoint her aunt. This often leads to Lupita angrily telling people off whenever things are too much to her. However, she likes to be helpful. She's part of RBD alongside Mía, Miguel, Diego, Roberta and Giovanni, and she comes up with the band's name. She's a victim of La Logia, a secret society that strives to keep the school 'pure' and 'clean' of scholarship students.
Throughout the first season, Lupita's in a relationship with Nico, a Jewish boy who studies at Elite Way. Although they're in love with each other, Nico's family opposes to the relationship, mainly because Lupita isn't Jewish. They even bring an old girlfriend of Nico back to Mexico, hoping the girl will break Nico and Lupita up. In the end of the first season, because Nico's family is sending him away to Israel to study, Nico and Lupita have a symbolic marriage, witnessed by all of their friends. Nico leaves to Israel, promising to write to Lupita and to come back as soon as possible to marry her for real. Lupita is heartbroken that he's leaving, but has confidence that they'll work out in the end.
In the second season, Lupita finds out her father remarried and has two new daughters with his second wife. Lupita's middle half-sister, Lola, is spoiled and jealous that Lupita is apparently their father's favorite. However, Lupita works hard to have a good relationship with her sister. Meanwhile, Lupita starts believing Nico has forgotten about her while in Israel, for he hasn't written to her at all since leaving. What she doesn't know is that Nico's mother has been holding his letters to Lupita back. Devastated, Lupita grows close to Santos, a classmate who has a secret crush on her.
However, Santos' feelings for Lupita worsens her relationship with Lola. Lola has a crush on Santos, and believes Lupita's pursuing him out of spite. With time, the sisters work out their problems (with Lola beating her former best friend Sol in Lupita's defense when Sol calls Lupita a bitch) and grow close. Lupita starts to accept she has fallen in love with Santos, and they seem posed to start their relationship... When Nico comes back, ready to pick up where he left it off with Lupita, leaving her stunned and utterly confused.
Nico's return puts a strain on Lupita's relationship with Santos, but, after a while, she realizes it's Santos who she loves and firmly tells Nico that she is over him and only wants him as a friend. Nico is heartbroken, but accepts Lupita's decision.

His best friends (and roommates) are Diego and Tomas.
Méndez dyes his hair of many colors throughout the series (at the end of the series it was rose red). Coming from a rather poor family, Méndez actively tries to hides his low-class beginnings and parentage. For that very same reason, Méndez always shoots for a chance at easy money.
Méndez's parents had humble beginnings, but became rich after his father won the lottery. However, the personal administrator of the family fortune committed fraud and stole all of the family's possessions, which forced them to return to their original lives as the owners of a butcher shop.
Méndez is also a hopeless womanizer, unable to remain faithful to just one woman (which mostly explains why his relationship with Vico ended in failure). He gets into a relationship with Augustina, a rich girl who gives Giovanni expensive gifts at the drop of a dime, wooing Giovanni to her feet. Although he is good at heart, some rich classmates consider him a sellout, which splits Giovanni between his devotion to one woman and his fixation for expensive gifts. But in spite of all that he continues going to school, and he is doing good with his personal life, family, friends, girls, fun activities, and as a member of RBD.

Rocco starts to make moves on Vico, stemming from Vico's reputation of being "easy", but later on, he falls for her for real. He tries his best to help out Vico in her troubled times, despite Vico's refusal and constant rejections. It seems his attempts pay off during a school trip to Puerto Vallarta, where Vico finally opens her heart to Rocco.

The power-hungry, yet idiotic head of the school, who often takes pleasure in the misfortune of the students. He has poor knowledge of English. Even though he tries to be an imposing authority figure, he comes out more as a dim-witted principal who is easily manipulated not only by his superiors, but also by the same students he wants to control. Sometimes, his antics and raging outbursts come out as more comical than menacing (especially his silly evil laugh). Also tends to act clumsy when in the presence of a gorgeous woman. He used to be in a relationship with Alma Rey. He's going through a divorce with his wife Galia, since she considers him to be 'weak' and 'easily manipulated' by Diego's father (the legal owner of the Elite Way School). In the last episode we see Galia winking at him. They talk privately at the pool and they somewhat get back together. In the last few scenes, Galia gives him a peck on the lips for the audience. Then Pascual pulls her down and slaps a mouthful on her, with a round of applause from the audience. Despite his clumsy attitude and often meddlesome ways, he still loves his daughter Pilar very much and only wishes for her well being.

The new prefect, who is just as unpleasant as Esteban. He has a huge crush on Mía, and they finally began a relationship, much to the disapproval of Mía's father. Mía went out with Gastón to get Miguel (her true love) jealous. His past was just as obscure as Esteban's, as indicated by further investigations made by Jose Lujan, whom Gaston likes to downgrade and humiliate at any given chance. Jose Lujan stole his laptop, and finds information that leads her to believe that Gaston is her secret benefactor, but Gaston repeatedly denies it. After a while, Gaston gets annoyed by Jose Lujan's meddling with his affairs, and decides to get her out of the Elite Way School once and for all. In reality, Gaston's father (Ricardo Sisniega) took care of Jose Lujan when she was a dirty street orphan because she had saved his life (although how she did so is still unknown). Gaston's father had always compared Jose Lujan's strength of will to Gaston's weak spirit, which fueled Gaston's anger. When his father died in prison, Gaston was forced to look after Jose Lujan and see to her tuition as per his father's last wish. Although Gaston tried to blame Jose Lujan for his miserable existence, he really did love Lujan like a sister, as he admitted to in his final breath.
