Harvey "Harley" Keiner is the leader of the bullies at John Adams High. His oldest lackey is Frankie and his newest one is Joey. He tried to recruit Shawn, but was thwarted by Cory. In Back 2 School, Cory tried to make friends with him as a way to gain instant popularity, but Harley instead chose to target Cory. Because of a prank he played on Cory, he refers to him as "baboon" (Johnny Baboon). He is currently a janitor at John Quincy Adams Middle School in New York.
The episode Sister Theresa reveals Harley's family life and a more sympathetic side to the bully. He has a sister, Theresa Keiner, whom he truly cares for. Apparently when Theresa was eight, their father ditched Theresa at a Phillies game to run off with another woman. Harley went out of his way to get to the Phillies game and escort her home.
Season 3 was at least his third year spent as a Senior at John Adams High School.
Danny McNulty, who played Harley Keiner, was replaced by Kenny Johnston in the episode Wrong Side of the Tracks, with no explanation given. However, after the episode Girl Meets Flaws (from the first season of Girl Meets World) aired, McNulty revealed that he was bipolar and had a breakdown during the middle of an episode, and therefore his character was replaced by Johnston for one episode before the show explained that Keiner had gone to reformatory school. After McNulty was better, he came back for one last appearance in BMW as Harley, with his character having escaped from reform school.
He became the janitor at John Quincy Adams Middle School in New York City with Cory's help.
He is now a nicer person who helps the children at the school. He is also shown to feel regret and remorse for his old ways.
