A business associate of Mr. Frank, Mr. Van Daan was formerly in the meat and sausage business. He arranges for his family to live with the Franks in the annex of their former establishment. There is really not much about this guy, especially in the context of being "magnanimous". He was intimidated by his wife and rarely stands up for himself. He comes in handy, being from the meat business, in making sausages and preserving them.
