Meg Giry is the only daughter of Madame Giry, the dance director, and is Christine Daa's best friend. Early in the story, she and Christine would have been a small part of the ballet ensemble led by Madame Giry for Chalumeau's Hannibal. However, the shows star Carlotta becomes frightened by frequent accidents and refuses to preform. Christine takes her place and is a huge success. After this, Christine admits to Meg that she has been coached by an elusive tutor (The Phantom) who calls out to her. While strong in her support for Christine, Meg dismisses these claims. After Christine disappears, she starts to believe that the Phantom does have special powers. Part of this is due to her own mother's experiences with the Phantom as a young man. At the end of the story it is Meg who leads the charge into the Phantoms mysterious lair where she discovers not the Phantom who has disappeared, but his mask which she takes.

Outside from her role in The Phantom of the Opera, it is known that Meg is an amazingly talented dancer. This is probably because she loves being on stage more than anything else in the world, and this makes her want to practice, knowing that someday she will have solo parts, and get to be on stage longer. She craves attention about as much as she craves cheese danishes on Sunday mornings.

Though her frame is pleasing, and one would think that she would eat like a bird, Meg definitely does not. Even though she can't keep a secret and flirts shamelessly with any patron she can come by under the age of forty, Meg is a great friend to the other girls. When there are spats in her chambers between other ballet rats, Meg will be the one to step in, maybe shout a little, but quickly clear the whole thing up. The other girls look up to her, even though she is younger than most of them.

She is brave, and sometimes cheeky to her mother, the managers, and La Carlotta. She has been known to sneak out of bed with her friends for the thrill of doing it, and making it no further than the lobby before turning back, and making everyone else do the same, for fear of Paris at night. Meg is courageous of course, but also not the brightest crayon in the box. She will often get caught for scheming too loud backstage and reprimanded for her brazen behavior towards the upper class.

She never expresses remorse for her wrongdoings unless it involves her mother being disappointed in her, or a friend thinking she's betrayed them. When said instances occur, you can find Meg either in her chambers moping or down at the barre, working on her dancing with a fierce concentration. Overall, she is a lovable imp, about 5'2'' in height filled out well for her age, and someone everyone at the Opera knows, personally or infamously, whether they like it or not.
