Bellwether was the assistant mayor to the mighty Mayor Lionheart, whose impatience and intolerance towards even the slightest amount of incompetence often resulted in the former's humiliation. Like Judy Hopps, Bellwether had apparently endured a life of neglect, implied to have repeatedly been at the hands of predator mammals. Over time, she would develop a disdain towards them, and their treatment towards prey mammals, setting a goal to someday make Zootopia a place where prey reign supreme, and predators are labeled as nothing more than worthless, bloodthirsty savages. To do so, she allied herself with rams who shared her sentiments, and used flowers known as night howlers to create a chemical drug capable of turning civilized mammals savage. Once predators were deemed too dangerous for society, Lionheart, as the plan would go, would be removed from office out of fear, while Bellwether would be promoted, thus granting her control over the city, and the satisfaction of establishing prey as the dominant species.
And according to Blackie, sometime before she became Assistant Mayor, Bellwether was once his girlfriend, and they had many dates, but Blackie broke up with her, after seeing her mistreat one of his friends, (which happened to be a Silver fox), but also because he found out she wasn't as sweet as she looked.
However, Bellwether was broken out of Jail (mystery of whom, still remains). Bellwether then joined the Sith, and was trained with Force skills and Lightsaber combat (By The Grand Inquisitor), she even built a Lightsaber that matched The Inquisitor's.
After the Inquisitor's death, Bellwether learned more about combat from other Sith, where she soon made her reappearance in "Old Masters and Return of an Old Threat" where she engaged Sunset Shimmer in a duel, and even tried to make Sunrise turn to the Dark Side but they managed to give her the slip. Then later she used the Nighthowler serum on Sugar Sprinkles, in a way to have the Pets terminated, but this plan was foiled by Youngmee Song.
Bellwether appeared again in " " where she attempted to capture Judy. However she ended up dueling Hanah Streaker, as Sunset then intervened, and let Bellwether take her prisoner in order to insure her friends' safety. Then the team sneak inside the ship where Sunset is kept (using the TIE Fighter that Peterson, and the Crystal Crusaders took as a Trojan Horse). Sunrise freed Sunset, but they were meet up with Bellwether again, as Sunset used Sunrise's Lightsaber against her. As Sunrise retrieved Sunset's Lightsaber and used it in the duel too. But Bellwether hurled her saber at Sunrise (which seemingly kills her) as she falls off the walkway. Sunset then grabs her own saber and duels wield the 2 sabers against Bellwether and out bests her in battle and destroyed her Lightsaber (which fell from the ship and onto the planet below) while Sunset could've killed Bellwether, she refused to. As Bellwether then told Sunset that she unleashed a new threat as she let go of the railing she was hanging and fell off the ship. As the team escape the exploding ship using a few of the onboard TIE Fighters (including Bellwether's own).
But then, in " " Bellwether revealed to survive her fall, and during her time, she constructed a new Lightsaber. Where she
At first glance, Bellwether appears as a meek, shy, kind, energetic and eager sheep. She sympathizes with Judy Hopps as she feels the two are both under-appreciated and underestimated and claimed herself as Judy's friend in City Hall. She is eager to help and excited she could be of use since she feels her job as assistant mayor is more of a glorified secretary job. It is obvious throughout the film that she mostly does paperwork and menial jobs while Lionheart is somewhat of a glory hound who dumps the work on her and gets all the attention.
However, this is actually a mere façade to hide her true nature; a deceptive and cunningly diabolical mastermind. Bellwether is very disdainful and prejudiced against predators because, as she puts it, they are only 10% of the population and she seems to view them as dangerous and unintelligent in comparison to the prey. She is power-hungry and willing to let prey get injured or even killed by the predators she turns savage in order to maintain power and turn the populace against the predator minority (showing that despite claiming she cares for prey, she ultimately thinks nothing of sacrificing a few for her cause). She is merciless and sociopathic, perfectly willing to kill anyone who gets in her way or simply refuses to agree with her beliefs. She has also shown signs of being a sadist, as she laughed wickedly as Nick "attacked" Judy. She is highly intelligent and manipulative, organizing Judy's exposure of Lionheart's illegal imprisonment of the savage predators from behind the scenes in order to take over as Mayor, in addition to staging everything to look as if predators have gone savage. However, she does prove to be a show off once her true colors are revealed, arrogantly bragging about her plan before trying to finish off Judy and Nick Wilde, which proved to be her downfall.
