She was voiced in both productions by Tracy Grandstaff. Mike Judge created the Daria character on advice of the network. Glenn Eichler , who created the Daria spin-off - sometimes incorrectly stated to be the character's creator as well- was, along with Peggy Nicoll , one of the main writers of the series; other writers were Neena Beber , Anne D. In Daria's first incarnation as a recurring character on Beavis and Butt-Head , she formed an intelligent female foil to the two main characters.
She is voiced by Tracy Grandstaff. Daria's best-known characteristic is her deadpan sarcasm; her usual reaction to almost anything and everyone being a dry, witty remark at their expense. Daria is naturally intelligent but also highly apathetic and somewhat lazy, showing no motivation to apply anything above the minimum required effort and never taking part in extracurricular activities by her own volition, entirely content to coast through high school with her inherent academic talents. Due to this lack of engagement with other students, in addition to her often bored or pessimistic expression and status as an outsider, she is commonly perceived as being very unhappy; while she considers herself realistic and in The Misery Chick she clarifies she's not nihilistic, she will occasionally appeal to nihilism and even consideration of suicide for the sake of an offhand joke.
It is a spin-off of Mike Judge 's earlier animated series, Beavis and Butt-Head , in which Daria appeared as a recurring character. The network characterized the series as the first in multiple projected Daria animated spinoffs. The show is set in the fictional suburban American town of Lawndale and is a satire of high school life, full of allusions to and criticisms of popular culture and social classes. It is set during Daria's high-school years and ends with her graduation and acceptance into college. The principal location used for the show outside of the Morgendorffer home is Lawndale High School, a public-education institution filled with colorful and dysfunctional characters. The dynamics among the two lead characters changed during season four, when Jane began a relationship with Tom Sloane. Though Daria is hesitant to accept Tom at first, fearing she will lose her best friend, she and Tom find themselves becoming closer, culminating in a kiss in the season finale.
