Daniel Horatio Miller is easy to crush on, but not so easy to beat in the pool. A sporty Shark with super smarts. Daniel doesn't have powers, but he could cast a spell on any girl, drumming up the drama.
Daniel is portrayed by Nick Merico.
In Season 1, Daniel shows Emma around the school and is dating Maddie Van Pelt. He develops a crush on her and after he breaks up with Maddie, he tells Emma he has feelings for her. When Maddie finds out, she gets angry and starts up a storm. Later in the season, he writes and performs a song for Emma.
In the next season, Emma hides that she has powers and when Daniel finds out, he breaks up with her. The new guy Jax tries to take Emma away from him. This leads to constant arguments towards the two. However, in the season finale, Emma chooses Daniel and they kiss and get back together while trying to stop Jax and Evil Emma from taking over the Magic Realm. Daniel tells Jax to stay away from her and it is unknown if they made up.
In this season Daniel becomes a lifeguard during the summer and partners with Mia, who unknown to Daniel is secretly a Kanay, is out to get Emma and destroy witches. Daniel was under a spider seal that Mia put on him that brought out his "inner wild", it made him act like a jerk, break up with Emma and started dating Mia. Eventually, Mia removed the seal when it started making Daniel sick and he went back to normal.
Daniel however is now under the impression that Mia did it by accident and that she was helping him by removing the seal. This causes a wedge between Daniel and Emma as he doesn't believe Emma about Mia, it is also hinted that Daniel might have feelings for her and that might be why he is sticking up for her. In The Kanay Strikes Back Daniel finally realizes that Mia was the one who put the spider seal on him and no longer believes anything she says.
Eventually after realizing how much damage both Mia and himself has caused towards his relationship with Emma, Daniel apologized to Emma for everything that had happened between them and told her that he didn't want their relationship to end. However he knew that she still has feelings for Jax and also told her that she had to make a decision on who she truly wanted to be with. Eventually, Emma finally made her decision and chose Jax over Daniel.
Daniel is tall, athletic and the leader of the sharks. His personal style tends to be casual but colorful without being over the top, while he prefers the dress-shirt-and-tie version of the school uniform.
Daniel is a sweet and fun loving guy. He is very athletic as shown by the fact that he is captain of 3 teams out of 5 in total. He never try's to dress over the top and has super smarts as well. He's also slightly clumsy and very playful. When Mia marks him, he becomes a bad boy and acts like a jerk to everyone, including his younger siblings. After the seal was removed, Daniel returned to his old self.
Ex-GirlfriendEmma and Daniel meet in Discovery when Emma is moving in her house. Daniel is seen walking out his house with Mac's pair of dirty socks on a stick, He puts them in the trash and he finds Emma across the street staring at him and he stares at her. A Bunch of butterflies fly across the street to Daniel's house and he yells "BUTTERFLIES!" because he's allergic to them.
On Emma's first day at Iridium High, Daniel is assigned to be her tourist. Emma is handed her registration paper and Daniel walks in, at the moment a butterfly is in the office and since Daniel is allergic to butterflies he sneezes and startles Emma, causing her to knock down the pencils in the office.
Emma and Daniel shake hands and Emma runs out the office, this is where she bumps into Maddie Van Pelt (Daniel's Ex-Girlfriend) and knocks her smoothie down. "Who are you!?" Maddie asked and Daniel yells "Emma!" causing Maddie to become jealous of rage and start a hurricane in the hallway. Daniel and Emma become a couple in the season 1 finale, The Chosen One.
In Season 3 Emma and Daniel have a strong bond between each other and are still a couple, but he later is placed under Mia's spider seal and breaks up with Emma, again. After Mia released him from the spider seal, Daniel and Emma are back to being a couple. Their relationship didn't last long though when Daniel decided to end their relationship as he wouldn't believe Emma about Mia thinking that she was only jealous of her.
Daniel finally realizes the truth after Mia kisses him. During this time, he had a vision that made him remember when he first got the Spider Seal and finally saw that she did in fact put it on him. He also says that he's in love with Emma which upsets Mia. After apologizing to Emma he told her that he didn't want their relationship to end but also said that she had to make a choice between him and Jax. Later, when Emma and Mia get sucked into the video game, Zombie Apocalypse 3, Jax comes in to rescue them. While still in there Jax sits down with Emma and tells her "I believe in my heart that you and I belong together, but you have to choose, you can't have both of us". When they finally get out of there and everyone leaves leaving Jax, Emma and Daniel in Daniel's house, Daniel walks up and says "Come on, I'll walk you home." Jax then walks up and says "Let's get out of here, come on." Emma walks up to them and takes one of their hands, leading to transporting out to the pool where it is revealed she chose Jax over Daniel ending their relationship.
Daniel and Maddie first dated in the show and they broke up 74 times. Daniel then breaks up with Maddie for real as he wanted to date Emma. In Season 2, they become friends as he tells Maddie that she's became a nicer person and gives Maddie relationship advice between her and Diego.
Daniel and Diego are teammates and good friends. They, alongside Jax, crashes the girls' sleepover but Diego got annoyed when Daniel used to remind him that him and Maddie dated. In Season 3 they support each other and Diego is there for Daniel even though he was under the spider seal.
Jax and Daniel seem to be on good terms when they first met, even though Jax got him in trouble and messed with him numerous times. They become enemies because Jax began to date Emma and tries to make Daniel jealous when he and Emma while they were dating at some point. Daniel doesn't know about Jax being a wizard until the episode Emma Wants a Cracker. In the season 2 finale, Daniel threatens Jax to stay away from Emma after he tried to destroy the realm.
In season 3, their rivalry continues, as Jax is determined to win Emma's heart and trust again. They constantly fought over and about her, even when Daniel was under the influence of the spider seal. They attempt to work together when Jax tells Daniel about Emma trying to turn Phillip human and asks to talk to her. They both end up helping her turn Phillip human. In the season 3 finale, they seemed to make up when Daniel thanked Jax for bringing Emma back. This is also the episode where Emma chose Jax over Daniel. It is unclear if they are friends.
Daniel and Andi are good friends and Andi helped him and Emma get out of the Abyss. Plus Andi supports Daniel being the team captain of The Sharks and dislikes Jax as well. They both trust one another and love helping Emma any way they can.
Mia has taken a certain interest in Daniel by putting a spider seal on him making him do whatever she wants. Emma tried to remove it but it is shown to still effect him physically.
