Daniel is the oldest child. He is 17 years old and always wears black, which, in his opinion, is very cool. He sometimes has no time for Jacob and sometimes is in a bad mood like his sister Marfa. Sometimes he gives his brother a unique teen view of the world. Daniel is seen to be - as seen in the episodes, aloof, pessimistic, arrogant and cynical. Even though he may seem like he's a jerk, Daniel is kind and has a heart.
When Daniel was little, he resembled Jacob with his big hair.
