Cherry Valance is a Soc, but she is different from her peers in several ways. She is not filled with hatred or a sense of superiority; instead, her nature is sensitive, understanding, and peaceful. Cherry can't leave her group, but she likes and trusts Pony, even though he is a Greaser. She helps him understand that Pony and his friends are not the only ones who have problems and conflicts and that people who are rich can appreciate many of the same things that Pony values, such as beautiful sunsets. Cherry avoids violence whenever she can and tries to head off violence between the Socs and the Greasers. She is loyal to her boyfriend Bob, however, and won't visit Johnny in the hospital because Johnny had killed Bob.
