Dallas Winston is a greaser and a JD hood. Dally's been arrested for many things, such as riding in rodeos, stealing, cheating, fighting and many more. The book also mentions that, "Dally had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten." Dally dies after Johnny dies from being trapped inside a burning church after saving some little kids. Ponyboy states in the book that Johnny was the only thing Dally loved. After Johnny's tragic death, Dallas freaks out and runs out out of the hospital, leaving Ponyboy behind. It turns out he robs a store and that the police are now after him. He calls Darry and tells him to bring the gang and meet him at the vacant lot. That's where he dies, raising his gun to the police, who didn't know his gun wasn't loaded, and Dally is shot 4 times as the gang yells at him. Dally didn't want to die a hero, he wanted to die a criminal. Dally died gallantly.


Dallas is depicted in the book as having, "an elfish face, with high cheekbones and a pointed chin, small, sharp animal teeth, and ears like a lynx. His hair was almost white it was so blond, and he didn't like haircuts, or hair oil either, so it was dry and fell over his forehead in wisps and kicked back in tufts and curled behind his ears and along the nape of his neck. His eyes were blue, blazing ice, cold with a hatred of the whole world."
