Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie. A mischievous boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland. His enemies believe that Peter Pan must die. Wendy is hinted to have romantic feelings for Peter, but cannot be with him because of his inability to love back.Wendy saves Peter by giving him her hidden kiss (signifying he is her true love); this gives him the will to live. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie's works.
