These are "the Greasers". Ponyboy is the laid-back one, doesn't talk much. Johnny is the gang's pet, he gets beaten up by his old man. Dally is the toughest one in the gang, he was arrested at 10 years old. Sodapop is the handsome one, people look at him as if he is a movie star.
Darry is pretty much like a parent since he has to take care of Sodapop and Ponyboy (the three of them are brothers). Two-Bit is the oldest, he can't stop making funny remarks of saving his life. Last but not least, Steve. Steve is Sodapop's best buddy since grade school.
