Cast of characters in the original Treasure Island novel

 

 

 

Blind Pew is the pirate who is chosen to deliver the Black Spot to Billy Bones. He is a vicious, deadly, and sinister blind beggar who served as a member of Flint's crew. Despite his blindness, he proves to be a dangerous fighter and can even be considered a ringleader amongst his fellow crewmen.

 

He is the second messenger to approach Billy Bones after Black Dog. He is trampled to death by the horses of revenue officers riding to assist Jim Hawkins and his mother after the raid on their inn.

 

Long John Silver claims Pew spent his share of Flint's treasure at a rate of 1,200 per year, and that for two years until his accident at the "Admiral Benbow", he begged, stole, and murdered.

 

Robert Louis Stevenson avoided predictability by making the two most fearsome characters a blind man and an amputee. In the play Admiral Guinea (1892), Stevenson gives him the full name "David Pew". Stevenson's novel Kidnapped (1886) also features a dangerous blind man.
