Gatsby Males

Tom Buchanan is Daisy's husband. They married, but didn't really love each other. Tom is having an affair with Myrtle Wilson, George Wilson's wife who is a station attendent, and dismisses Daisy everytime they talk. He is very impulsive and has punched Myrtle for talking about Daisy.
Jay Gatsby is the main character who is mysterious, loyal, hardworking, misguided, and he has a hard time reviling his feelings to Daisy Buchanan. He had to get Nick to help him by inviting her to his house. He owns a mansion in West Egg right next to Nick Carraway and hosts lavish parties on the weekends. His parties are the envy of many guests that go there.

Nick Carraway is the other main character. For most of the novel, he is the narrator and witnesses all the incidents of the various characters. He is distantly related to Daisy Buchanan and call each other cousins. Nick is infatuated with Daisy's friend, Jordan Baker, who is a flapper. At first, he doesn't understand why he has to be Gatsby's "wingman" when he meets with Daisy, but realizes that they have a deep connection instantly.
