The face of the Vox Populi, working to free Columbia from the iron fist of the Founders so it can be seized by the iron fist of Daisy Fitzroy instead. Originally a hapless servant girl, she went on the run for the murder of Lady Comstock, which radicalized her. Daisy is highly intelligent and resourceful, with once-noble intentions that have been worn down over several years of fruitless fighting into an all-consuming thirst for violence. She returns in ''Burial At Sea'' where we get brief glimpses into her [[HiddenDepths deeper motivations]].

* {{Disneyesque}}: The art book states she's inspired by a number of Disney princesses, and boy, does it show.
** Specifically, she's [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] sharing a body with [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]] and later wearing part of Film/MaryPoppins' outfit.
** This is lampshaded in ''Episode Two'', where a bird lands on her finger and sings during a dream sequence.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Fink outright admits in private that he doesn't buy an ounce of Comstock's rhetoric, and certainly doesn't see him as a divine or holy figure (one Voxophone hints he's actually an atheist). Certainly nothing wrong with that viewpoint, especially given what a monster Comstock is, but Fink takes complete advantage of Columbia's theocratic governmental structure. He actually persuaded Comstock to find an excuse to treat non-whites as lesser citizens in Columbia purely so he'd have a basis for how to exploit and mistreat his workforce. He also has no trouble exploiting peoples' loyalty and divine viewpoint of Comstock to get the best deal for himself

He was then hired by The Pinkertons and ended labor strikes with extreme violence, before being fired for being too violent even for ''them.''
