Cast of characters in the original Treasure Island novel

 

 

 

Captain Flint is the pirate who buried his treasure on Skeleton Island and made a map of where to find it. He was captain of a ship called the 'Walrus.' Long John Silver's parrot is named after Flint as a jest-ful remembrance.

 

Flint is a fictional character in the book Treasure Island, created by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1883. In this book, Flint, whose first name is not given in the text, was the captain of a pirate ship (The Walrus) in which accumulated an enormous amount of captured treasure, approximately 700,000. Flint and six members of his crew bury the plunder on an island located somewhere in the Caribbean Sea - later called Skeleton Island. Flint then murders his six assistants, leaving the corpse of one, Allardyce, with its arms outstretched in the direction of the buried treasure.

The location of the treasure is marked by Flint on a map and entrusted to his first mate William "Billy" Bones. It later falls into the hands of the protagonist of the novel, Jim Hawkins.

The only person Flint was said to fear was his quartermaster John Silver - with good cause.

Flint is said to have died in Savannah, many years before the book's central plot takes place, with his last words being, "Darby M'Graw - fetch aft the rum...." His death was said in the book to have been caused by the effects of rum. The inscription on the map suggests that he died in 1754.
