Riley Matthews is the daughter of Cory and Topanga. She is the main character in the Disney Channel sequel series, Girl Meets World. Cory is also her history teacher in both middle and high school.
Riley's best friend is Maya Hart, who ultimately becomes Shawn's adopted daughter after he marries her mother Katy.
Riley inherited much of her personality from her father; while she has her mother's brains and common sense, she also has her father's goofiness, his desire to help others, and his indomitable will.
