Imogen Moreno is a senior (Grade 12) at Degrassi Community School. Since she is never content with blending in, Imogen goes to great trouble to make herself appear unique. She puts on the airs of being an enlightened individual, but it's a ploy to manipulate those around her. Imogen is also very eccentric, and is not afraid to be out of the norm. She is good friends with Eli Goldsworthy and Fiona Coyne. She has conflicts with Katie Matlin, Marisol Lewis, and Clare Edwards. She is portrayed by Cristine Prosperi.
