Despite her beauty, Daria is sarcastic, intelligent, slightly sadistic, monotone, and cynical. Sometimes she is even considered mentally unstable, and was momentarily interested in becoming a mercenary. She is very unpopular and a "brain," and seems to only hang out with her best friend, Jane Lane. She does occasionally socialize with Jodie Landon, Mack, and even Brittany Taylor and Kevin Thompson. Her sense of morality and staunch unwillingness to conform frustrates her family, but occasionally makes them proud. She rarely shows signs of self-consciousness or even emotion, but her family and friends often claim it's partially because she's afraid that she'll try to fit in and still not be accepted. Despite her pessimism, she does go out of her way to help people, like the new kid Ted, or a lost Tad Gupty. When asked to act like Daria, Quinn talked about throwing herself in front of a train, which caused Daria to remark that she is not suicidal. When her mother points out she sees everything in such a harsh light, Daria asks her if she means "the harsh light of reality." She insists she is not negative or depressed, just realistic.
During the end credits of the series finale, Is It College Yet?, where all the students futures are revealed, apparently Daria becomes not as dreary as she once was, and started a tv show with Jane called "Good Mornings with Daria and Jane".
Daria's appearance is often found disturbing by her peers, and rarely to never found attractive. She never wears make-up, and wears a boxy jacket, black skirt, and big, black boots. Her hair is brown, but has a slightly red tone to it. She always wears glasses, although briefly wore contacts until she decided they were too much trouble. In "Quinn the Brain", she wore conventional clothing and looked perhaps even prettier than her popular sister. She quickly reverted back to her normal look though. Also in the episode, it is shown she wears blue socks.
