The Lost Boys are characters from J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up and subsequent adaptations and extensions to the story. They are boys “who fall out of their prams when the nurse is looking the other way and if they are not claimed in seven days, they are sent far away to the Neverland” where Peter Pan is their captain. There are no “lost girls” because, as Peter explains, girls are far too clever to fall out of their prams.

Tootles is described as the most unfortunate and humblest of the band, because “the big things” and adventures happen while “he has stepped round the corner.” This however has not soured but sweetened his nature. He is the one who shoots Wendy with a bow and arrow after Tinker Bell tells them Wendy is a bird that Peter wants killed. When Tootles realises his mistake, he asks Peter to kill him. Wendy however survives, and Tootles is spared. Though he is clumsy and silly, Tootles is the first to defend Wendy when she wants to return to London. When Peter takes possession of “The Jolly Roger,”Captain Hook's pirate ship, Tootles takes Smee's place as boatswain. At the end of the novel, he returns to London with Wendy and the other lost boys and eventually grows up to become a judge. In unreleased content for the play's epilogue, it is stated that Wendy married Tootles when they grew up. Nibs is described as happy and debonair, possibly the bravest Lost Boy. The only thing he remembers about his mother is that she always wanted a cheque book and says he would love to give her one - if he knew what it was. He grows up to work in an office. Slightly is described as the most conceited of the boys, because he believes that he, unlike the others, remembers what life was like before he was “lost.” However, most of his “memories” are either based on misunderstandings: for example, he claims to know what his last name is because his pinafore had the words “Slightly Soiled” written on the tag. Slightly is, apparently, a poor make-believer, but he does seem to have a talent for music; he is described as cutting whistles and flutes from the branches of trees and dancing to tunes he creates himself. He grows up to marry into nobility and become a lord. Curly (“Cubby” in the Disney version) is described by Barrie as “a pickle” (a person who gets into pickles) and has curly hair, hence his name. He isn't very smart but very loveable. Curly is also a little timid but has a kind heart. Curly grows up to work in an office. The Twins – First and Second Twin know little about themselves as they are not allowed to because Peter Pan does not know what Twins are, and no Lost Boy is allowed to know anything that Peter doesn't. The Twins grow up to work in an office.
