First Appearance

Peter Pan, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904)

Created by

J.M. Barrie


Michael Nicholas Darling is the youngest of the three children in the Darling family. His age is four, but Barrie states in Peter and Wendy that he still wears pinafores, and on his next birthday he'll start wearing shirts. He is quite sensitive. He looks up to his older sister, Wendy, and he sometimes bickers with John, his older brother.


  • In an early draft of the play, the character's name was "Alexander" or "Alex", but was renamed after Michael Llewelyn Davies, who was born during the play's development.
  • The Peter Pan play is not public domain in England or the United States. Special legislation was passed that gave the play a perpetual copyright. The characters, however, are public domain (as are the novels).
