Daisy is Nick's cousin, Tom's wife, and the woman that Gatsby loves. She had promised to wait for Jay Gatsby until the end of the war, but after meeting Tom Buchanan and comparing his extreme wealth to Gatsby's poverty, she broke her promise. Daisy uses her frailty as an excuse for her extreme immaturity. She is perhaps the most shallow self-serving character in the book. Nick notices that she seems to infect the men she meets. After Daisy kills Myrtle and, inthe end, they leave. Daisy isn't in love with Tom but stays with him because she offers the financial security she craves.
