Sailor John

Kicked out of the navy , Sailor John retired to the Island of Sodor and became obsessed with the idea of finding the lost treasure. He can be quite a charmer appearing both funny and likeable, but underneath his apparently friendly exterior lurks a ruthless schemer with no true friends apart from Skiff (his sailboat) and loyalty to none but himself. He is smart, energetic and practical, capable of elaborate planning and feats of engineering, such as adapting Skiff for the rails or commandeering the pirate ship and rigging it up as an escape vehicle.

Fun Fact!
In the movie ‘Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure’, Sailor John refers to himself as a pirate to the Policemen who come to arrest him: “but you’ve got the wrong pirate!”
