The pursued would relate to Daisy, Myrtle and Nick. Nick is pursued as a bridge to Daisy; Daisy is pursued for as a dream; Myrtle is pursued for pleasure.

Gatsy would be termed as busy..... busy making plans and seeing to their perfection.

The character most likely to be defined as tired would be George Wilson. Working ceaselessly to make his wife happy, something that would eventually come to be seen as impossible.
