George is described as spiritless, anaemic, hopeful, middle class.

In this chapter we see Tom as condescending, uppity, and impatient.

Myrtle is described as being in her mid-thirties, stout, voluptuous, smouldering, brazen, bossy, and demanding.

Daisy doesn't appear in this chapter except by way on conversation (gossip). She is said to be holding onto her marriage because she's Catholic (she's not).
