"Johnny was smaller than the rest, with a slight build. He had big black eyes in a dark tanned face; his hair was jet-black and heavily greased and combed to the side, but it was so long that it feel in shaggy bangs across his forehead. He had a nervous, suspicious look in his eyes."
Johnny is really jumpy, even more so after being jumped. He doesn't talk much and is quite shy, but he wasn't scared at all when he rescued some kids from a burning church.
