These are, of course, the main characters--minus Ponyboy--from Susan B. Hinton's classic teen novel, The Outsiders. Darrel (Darry) is the oldest of the Curtis brothers and serves as the father figure of the family after the death of his parents. He is more mature and serious than the other characters. Sodapop Curtis, the second oldest of the brothers, is handsome and romantic. Soda's best friend, Two-Bit Mathews, is frivolous and lazy. Dallas Winston, who grew up on big city streets, is tough and suspicious. Johnny Cade, the best friend of Ponyboy who dies tragically in the end, is quiet and nervous.
