Chloe Sullivan moved to Smallville from Metropolis in the eight grade. Her father, Gabe, is plant manager of LuthorCorp Fertilizer Plant #3. A big city girl at heart, Chloe is obsessed with investigative journalism and hopes to write for the Daily Planet someday. Principal Kwan challenged Chloe to take responsibility for keeping the paper focused on legitimate news pertaining to the school, the students, and extracurricular activities after he fired her from the paper, accusing of her as treating the Torch as her own personal tabloid. Chloe attacked her new mission statement with gusto, creating student polls and focussing on events such as Student Elections. However, she is still convinced that the meteorites which rained down on the town in 1989 are to blame for numerous aberrations and dangerous criminals in Smallville.
Chloe is editor of the school newspaper, The Smallville Torch, and earned her first by-line in Smallville's weekly newspaper, The Smallville Ledger, with her coverage of Eric Summers sudden and amazing acts of heroism (Leech). After her abduction, her piece on the experience earned her an offer of a summer internship at the Planet in Metropolis (Obscura). Although still an underclassman, Chloe is well on her way to realising her dream of becoming an investigative reporter. She impressed the editor of the Daily Planet with the article she wrote for the Smallville Ledger detailing her kidnapping at the hands of rogue Smallville police officer Gary Watts (Obscura). The Planet awarded her a summer internship, and she spent the summer of 2002 in Metropolis.
Chloe's passion for the weird side of journalism is evidenced by the "Wall of Weird." Originally a scrapbook, the wall began in the darkroom where the Torch office was originally located, and then was moved to the new offices early in the season. The wall contains newspaper clippings dating back 12 years, including the TIME cover featuring 3-year old Lana Lang after she witnessed her parents' death. Pete Ross urged Chloe to show Clark the wall when former Smallville High "Scarecrow" Jeremy Creek was photographed at a crime scene, not having aged a day (Premiere).
Chloe is smart, quick, and occasionally lets her sharp-tongue get her into trouble. She has little time or patience for jocks and cheerleaders, and had a hard time getting over her initial dislike of her rival for Clark's affection, Lana Lang. However, Lana and Chloe forged a tentative friendship, and Lana frequently joins Chloe on her fact-finding missions. Chloe does not spare anyone, friend or foe, the snark, up to and including her father's boss, Lex Luthor. Only being tossed out a third story window prevented her from netting a one-on-one interview with the boy billionaire, who enjoyed their brief round of "verbal judo" (Kinetic).
According to the Smallville press kit, Chloe "used to live in Metropolis and dreams of getting out of Smallville to get back to the big city. A nosy little reporter, her father, Gabe, runs LuthorCorp's local fertilizer plant that Lex's father Lionel Luthor bought from the Ross family when it was a cream corn factory years ago."
