Darrel Curtis, more commonly referred to by his friends as 'Darry', is one of the seven main characters of The Outsiders. The eldest and most ‘Soc-like’ of the gang, Darry is strong, clean-cut, and serious. He has been granted tenuous custody of his two younger brothers, Sodapop and Ponyboy, in the wake of their parent’s tragic death.
"Darry is six-feet-three, and broad-shouldered and muscular. He has dark-brown hair that kicks out in front and a slight cowlick in the back--- just like [their] Dad's--- but Darry's eyes are his own. He's got eyes that are like two pieces of pale red-orange paper. They've got a scared set to them, like the rest of him. He looks older than ten--- tough, cool, and smart. He would be real handsome if his eyes weren't so warm."
