Darrel (Darry) CurtisĀ is twenty years old. As the oldest brother, Darry has been taking care of his siblings since their parents died in a car accident. He gives up going to college on a football scholarship to work to take care of his brothers. His brothers are Ponyboy and Sodapop.

See the links below for more information, especially the page. It is a journal dedicated to everything to do with The Outsiders. It has all sorts of information about each character and the actors who performed in the movie. It is a very interesting site.
