Ponyboy Curtis (male, should appear to be in mid-teens) Narrator and protagonist; the youngest of the Greasers; his literary interests and academic accomplishments set him apart from the rest of his gang; he struggles with class division, violence, innocence, and familial love, but matures, eventually realizing the importance of strength in the face of class bias.

Johnny Cade (male, should appear to be in mid-teens) Physically small for his age; greaser; does not succeed in school, but approaches intellectual matters with steady concentration; child of alcoholic, abusive parents; nervous and sensitive; since his parents do not care for him, he sees the Greasers as his true family.

Dallas Winston (male, should appear to be in late teens/early 20's) The toughest hood in the group of Greasers; a hardened teen who used to run with gangs in New York; his violent tendencies make him more dangerous than the other Greasers, and he takes pride in his criminal record.
