Cily háttértörténete:
• Szülei korán meghaltak
• Bátyja, Fred szintén meghal. A mű cselekményének egyik fő pontja, amikor Cily táviratban értesül haláláról. Egyébként személyesen őt sosem látjuk. Annyit tudunk róla, hogy butácska volt, mindennél jobban szerette a mogyoróvajat, és katonának állt. Valamint Cily ugyanolyan biztonságot érzett az író mellett, amikor hozzábújt, mint gyerekkorában a bátyja mellett. Ezért hívja Fred-nek az írót is.
 
• 14 évesen Cily és Fred Goldmann doktorhoz kerülnek vidékre. Ételt próbálnak lopni. A doktor rajtakapja őket, és megtetszik neki a lány, ezért befogadja. Goldmann állatorvos volt, és a tipikus falusi ember ikonja.
• Ekkor még Cily-nek más neve volt, „igazi vidéki Strapa Maris”.
• Goldmann megkérte a kezét. Erre ő így válaszolt: „Persze, hogy hozzád megyek, hisz’ soha nem voltam még férjnél.” à ez is mutatja a kalandor természetét, azt, hogy mindent meg akar ismerni, ki akar próbálni.
• Amikor évekkel később Goldmann visszatér hozzá így fogalmaz „never loved a wild”,vagyis soha ne szeress egy vadat.
• New York-ban Cily minden csütörtökön Paradicsom Sally-hez jár a börtönbe látogatóba, és ezért jól megfizeti. Ő úgy tudja időjárásjeentéseket hoz és visz a börtönbe, eközben pedig ezek titkos kódok. Hiszen Sally-nek súlyos ügyei voltak, sikkasztott. à Ez ismételten a naivitását példázza Cily-nek.
• Rengeteg szeretőt tart. Igazából, kimondatlanul, de luxusprostituáltnak tekinthető, ebből élt.
• Szeretői közzé tartozott Rozsdás Trawel. Egy nagyon vagyonos ember, a környék leggazdagabbja. Aki korán elvesztette szüleit, és ezért tulajdonképpen örökké úgy viselkedett, mint egy kisfiú. Rettenetesen kövér, és buta ember volt. Később Trawel elveszi feleségül Mag Wildwood-ot, Cily barátnőjét.
• Mag beszédhibás volt, de még ebből is előnyt kovácsolt. hasonló utazó természetű volt, akárcsak Cily. Folyton férfiakkal vette magát körül, és a gazdagokra pályázott. ő maga eléggé ronda volt, a könyv szerint. Cily-vel nagyon jó baráságban voltak, Floridába is együtt utaztak egyszer. Beszélgetéseik a férfiakról pedig jelentősek a műben.
• A másik jelentős férfialak a műben: Jose, a portugál politikus. Cily reménytelenül szerelmes belé. Együtt képzeli el a jövőjüket. Portugálul tanul, valamint főzni, csak azért, hogy a kedvében járjon. Viszont amikor kirobban a Paradicsom Sally botrány, José azonnal lelép, hiszen nem vethet rossz fényt egy ilyen dolog a politikai karrierjére.
 
 
A Tiffany and Co. jelentősége - Beszélő cím:
 
• Cily sokszor érez „Angst”-ot (németül dühöt jelent)
• Sok mindent kipróbált már rá: ivás, aszpirin, marihuána.
• Csak egy valami segít neki a megnyugvásban: A Tiffany üzletek előkelő csöndje és eleganciája, ami megnyugtató és biztonságos számára.
• Magyarul: Álom luxuskivitelben à „Önmagam akarok lenni, amikor arra ébredek, hogy az álmaimat luxuskivitelben házhoz szállították.” 
• Angolul: „I want to still be me, when I...
