Special Sub-Topic: 'Treasure Island' Characters
|I'm the youngest sailor aboard the Hispaniola (besides Jim) and I'm soft-hearted enough to carry a Bible.|
Dick Johnson. Dick was raised well, but he became corrupt when he went to sea.
|I used to be Flint's gunner. |
Israel Hands. It was Abraham Gray who informed the Squire's party of this. Though Israel had been Flint's gunner, he never managed to hit the honest party.
|I had been marooned on Skeleton Island for three years.|
Ben Gunn. Ben Gunn had been living on a diet of goats, berries, and oysters for three years. The whole time, he was dreaming of cheese--toasted mostly.
|I am blind and meet my doom by being trampled by a horse.|
Pew. It was Pew and his men who invaded the Admiral Benbow Inn. Pew also delivered the black spot to Captain Billy Bones.
|I am the cook on board the Hispaniola.|
Long John Silver. Long John's nickname was "Barbecue". He was a sneaky villian, and it was hard to tell whose side he was on.
|I wear a red cap and am killed by Israel Hands.|
O'Brien. When Jim took over the Hispaniola (after he killed Israel in self-defense), he had to throw the dead O'Brien overboard.
|I'm a sailor that joins up with Squire's group when the other pirates mutiny.|
Abraham Gray. Abraham wanted to join Squire's party from the beginning, but some of the other pirates kept him from doing so for a few moments. When he did join with Squire Trelawney and the others, he proved very useful. When Abraham got his share of the treasure, he used it to become part owner of a fine ship.
|Long John says I'm an honest man, only stupid.|
Tom Morgan. Morgan had been part of Flint's crew, and he was very superstitious (for example: he thought Dick contracted a fever because he had spoiled his Bible).
|My eyes turn yellow from the ague fever.|
George Merry. George was about to lead a charge against Long John and Jim, when the doctor, Ben Gunn, and Abraham Gray came to the rescue by shooting him. George fell into the excavation and Long John finished him off by shooting him again.
|I am the first to die, of Squire's faithful party.|
Thomas Redruth. Near the beginning of the story, Redruth was charged to look after Jim, lest any of Pew's men should return.
