Ponyboy is probably the least Greaseresque character in Susan Hinton's novel The Outsiders. He is the most literate and academically conscious character in the novel, a good student, an avid reader and an aspiring writer. He is probably the most passive of the Greasers, preferring to talk about life and dreams instead of fighting and showing off. Where most of his friends love a good rumble, Ponyboy prefers to fight only in self-defense. He also proves to be a young man of great courage, as he displays when he rushes into the burning church to save the young children trapped inside.
