About Trent Lane From Daria

You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s siblings. That’s the saying, right? In Daria, Daria’s best friend Jane has an older sibling that tends to rotate in and out of the scenery with them, Trent. Trent is a carefree sort just trying to have a good time and the crowd that joins him is not of the most importance.

Trent enjoys music and drinking and can oftentimes be seen lifting or trying to lift the spirits of his sister and her best friends. Sometimes your friends having a sibling or siblings gives you enemies, sometimes indifference, and in this case, more friends.

Daria was an animated series created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis. It stars Tracy Grandstaff (Daria), Wendy Hoopes (Jane), and Alvaro J. Gonzalez (Trent). It aired for five seasons on MTV from 1997 to 2002.

Trent, being older, imparts the wisdom of being less worried about things in the simplest of ways. Here are some of our favorite ways the frontman of Mystik Spiral got the girls back on track.
