Cast of characters in the original Treasure Island novel




Jim Hawkins is the cabin boy who was in the apple barrel and tells us this story in the first person, along with the good doctor Livesey. Jim gets himself involved in this adventure when he finds a treasure map in the chest belonging to the old sea captain, Billy Bones. 


He is the young son of an innkeeper near Bristol, and is one of the main protagonists and narrator of ‘Treasure Island‘. Readers share their feelings and perceptions through the story as told by Jim Hawkins. Although he acts impulsive and impetuous throughout the novel, Jim exhibits remarkable courage and heroism, with his increasing sensitivity and wisdom as he comes to terms with the pirates killing of his shipmates. This adventure transforms him from an enthusiastic young boy to a young man who determines to take courageous and often very risky actions.

His impulsive actions start with taking the treasure map from Billy’s chest to uncovering the truth about the pirates and their plan for mutiny, to finding Ben Gunn and enlisting him in their cause, to making a deal with Long Silver. He then steals back the Hispaniola from the drunken pirate crew, and returns it to Captain Smollett in time to save themselves.


Jim returns home to write the story and is haunted by Long John Silver and his green feathered parrot in his dreams long after his return from Treasure Island: "Pieces of Eight."
