Personality

Darrel, who is called Darry, is the oldest out of the greasers. He is also the most mature, and everyone thinks he grew up too fast. He works way too long for his own good, and Ponyboy says he is "hard to be interested in a story or drawing a picture." He was forced to grow up so fast so his two brothers, Sodapop and Ponyboy, don't have to. He doesn't like getting into other people's business, except his brother's, but not much. He freaks out if his brothers don't get good grades or gets in trouble. Darry is also very tough, especially when protecting the other greasers from the Socs.

Physical Description

He is pretty tall, six feet and two inches, and pretty muscular. He has a dark brown tint of hair, that comes up in the front, along with a cowlick in the back. His eyes are "two pieces of pale blue-green ice" as Ponyboy says. He is 20 years old, but looks much older than that. Ponyboy also says "he would be real handsome if his eyes weren't so cold.

Jobs/Hobbies

When he was in school, he was captain of the football team, and even won an athletic scholarship, but didn't have enough money to go to collage. Now he spends a lot of his time on his jobs, like roofing houses, which he often pulls muscles. But other than that he will just hang around the greasers. He doesn't like movies or anything like that very much.

Prized possessions

His most prized possessions, though it's not really a possession, is his two brothers, Sodapop and Ponyboy. Other than that, and money, he doesn't really consider anything "prized."

Relationships with the Greasers

He has two brothers, Ponyboy and Sodapop. But other than that he is pretty good friends with all the others, but because he is always at his jobs, can't be as good of friends as he would like. Also he hates getting involved with the law, which is why he doesn't like when Ponyboy or Sodapop joins Dally or Two-Bit in their activities.
