Cast of characters in the original Treasure Island novel




Squire Trelawney is a rich landowner who funds the expedition to Skeleton Island and secures the Hispaniola.


John Trelawney is a good-natured, honest nobleman. He is described as a tall man, over six feet high, and plump in proportion with “a bluff, rough-and-ready face,” from his long travels. Jim Hawkins, the protagonist of the novel, finds recourse in him when the pirates were in search of him for the treasure map.

The moment he acquires the map, his enthusiasm increases over his desire for adventure. His deep passion for going to sea sets him to action. Still, his inability to keep a secret, despite his promise to be “as silent as the grave”, lands him and his companions in trouble. In turn, he was tricked into hiring Long John Silver and his fellow pirates as crew members, being somewhat naive as to nautical piracy and cut-throats.


His best quality, as Jim describes him, lies in his ability to shoot straight. Thus, he is given the jobs that require the best shot.
