Sodapop Curtis, often just called Soda by his friends and family, is one of the six main characters of The Outsiders. Almost seventeen during the events of the narrative, Soda is, for the most part, affably cheerful and kind; he is shown to be, at times, almost motherly toward his two brothers, Darry and Ponyboy. After the death of his parents, he dropped out of school to work full-time at the DX gas station, in order to help Darry pay the bills.
