In The 100
Bellamy was introduced to the series waiting to hear news about his sister Octavia, by bribing a guard for information. When he heard about the Earth mission he stole a guard's uniform and held the Chancellor hostage, in order to get on the dropship and join his sister. In the act, he had accidentally shot the Chancellor.
Bellamy is fearless, reckless, and caring. He also appears to be a bit of a playboy, seen especially in his early reactions with Clarke or his inner monologues. Knowing about the Earth trip he schooled himself as much as he could about Earth so he could protect himself and Octavia. He is good with a bow and often takes solitary hunting trips out in the woods. He feels very comfortable in the woods. He also is described to do whatever he needs to do to keep Octavia alive through out the book series.
Bellamy has a long, narrow face and long hair. He is described to be well - built and physically fit.
Bellamy has a romantic relationship with Clarke Griffin. At the end of Rebellion, Bellamy took Clarke out to place in the forest and told her that was where he wanted to build their home. He then proposed to Clarke and they get engaged.
Bellamy previously dated Lilly Marsh, a girl he met in the care center.
Bellamy (thinking about Clarke): "She laughed for what Bellamy was sure was her first time on Earth. He felt a surprising flicker of pride that he'd been the one to make it happen."
Bellamy (to Clarke): "Willing to listen to jazz music? You must mean 'happy because you get to listen to jazz music.' So happy that your heart starts beating a jazz riff."
Bellamy (to Clarke): "I want to spend eons with you, Clarke Griffin."
