Nobody calls Pan a coward and lives!
―Peter Pan[src]

Peter Pan is the boy who will never grow up. He is hot-headed, arrogant, prideful, short of attention span, and forgetful. He also loves bragging about his accomplishments. However, he can be caring, especially when it comes to the safety of Tinker Bell. According to The Trouble With Tink, Peter has "the eagerness of a puppy, the cleverness of a fox, and the freedom of a lark - all rolled into one spry, redheaded boy."

Peter Pan enjoys fighting the pirates, and during one fight he cut off Captain Hook's left hand.

Peter Pan met Tinker Bell while trying to steal the tooth of a shark. He had planned to do this by rowing out on a small boat and knocking the shark out cold with his oar - but the shark was bigger than he anticipated and it bit his boat in half. Peter had not yet learned to fly, and so Tinker Bell taught him then and there to save him from the shark.

He was close friends with Tinker Bell until he brought Wendy Darling to Never Land. Peter's fascination with Wendy broke Tink's heart, and she went back to Pixie Hollow after Peter brought Wendy and her brothers home again.

In The Trouble With Tink, Peter Pan pretended to mistake Tinker Bell and Terence for butterflies and made as if he were going to catch them and put them in his butterfly collection.
