Peter Pan Characters

Peter Pan Characters --- In the Story by J. M. Barries, Peter has many personality traits that are not very nice. He is boastful, cocky and careless and is always telling everyone how great he is. He has a wild "devil may care" attitude.

That said, one of his strongest good qualities is that he is a very brave young man when facing danger. He says "To die will be an awfully big adventure".

One of the things that Peter worries about is 'growing up'. He fears that being an adult will not be any 'fun'. That is where the name of the stage play came from ("The Boy That Would Not Grow Up").
