Dally's real name is Dallas Winston, and he is the toughest member of the greaser gang. He is the only member that has done time in jail. Dally represents reckless passion. He lives on the edge and is especially close to Johnny. Johnny Cade is the second-youngest in the greaser gang, besides Ponyboy. He is "smaller than the rest, with a slight build. He was the gang's pet, "everyone's kid brother." Johnny is an intense and sensitive boy. He feels estranged from his parents. Dally likes to look out for Johnny because he sees his own sensitivities in Johnny that he (Dally) tries so hard to cover.
