The largely vacuous and wholly superficial object of J. Gatsby's quest. Gatsby devoted his entire life to the persuit of Daisy's love. His fortune, his house, his status and his death are all for her benefit.

The most heartbreaking point of the novel is that he needs these things, the money, the car, the house, the sheer superficiality of it, in order to get Daisy. It is plain that this seemingly charming but soul-less woman cares for Gatsby largely because of his wealth.
