Keith Mathews, known to everyone as Two-Bit, is one of the six main characters of The Outsiders. A good-natured, smart-mouthed, joker known for his sense of humor and inability to take things seriously, Two-Bit is still a high school junior at eighteen and a half.
"Two-Bit Mathews was (one of) the oldest of the gang and the wise-cracker of the bunch. He was about six feet tall, stocky in build, and very proud of his long rusty-colored sideburns. He had gray eyes and a wide grin."
