Ethan Yeager is the teenage son of Willow and Coyote Yeager. He appears in one episode, "That Was Then, This Is Dumb". Although Ethan doesn't explicitly reject his parents' hippie lifestyle and anti-materialist views, he seems to hold them in a certain amount of passive contempt. Ethan speaks in a monotone similar to Daria's. He comes off as indifferent and a little bitter about his life. After a sort of date with Quinn in the episode, he describes her as cute "in a shallow, superficial way".

Ethan in Canon[edit]

Ethan appears with the rest of the Yeagers in the episode, "That Was Then, This Is Dumb", emerging from the Yeagers' yellow VW Beetle after Daria has already decided to escape to Jane's. Quinn is immediately transfixed by the presence of a handsome boy and quickly agrees to hang around the house in an attempt to get blackmail material—and get to know Ethan.

Ethan seems to be moody and taciturn by nature. He displays no interest in conversing with Jake and Helen, dismisses his father's statement that he is "gonna rock climb. When he's ready," with a mumbled "Whatever," and rebuffs Quinn's first overtures. When she shows him around the house, he chooses to stay in Daria's room, describing it as "cool." Later, he sees his father and Jake on the Beetle drinking berry juice and notes acidly that Coyote "let the berry juice ferment again." He then takes Quinn for a slush cup (which she pays for) and spills some dirt on her parents.

Ethan's age is not mentioned in the episode, although it is assumed by the Daria fandom that he is in his late teens, either 18 or 19.
