Robin Hood is the well-known hero from English folklore, who 'steals from the rich to give to the poor'.
Appearance & Personality
"He was tall and handsome with a red beard and a bright smile. He wore dark green clothing, a feathered cap, and tall boots. He held a bow in one hand, and a quiver of arrows was strapped to his back."
Despite his heroic reputation, Robin is cocky, vain and conceited. He speaks of himself in the third person (usually to praise himself). When he meets Conner, the Tin Woodman and Peter Pan, he immediately assumes they must be the Sheriff of Nottingham's 'knights'. He doesn't change his mind until Conner and his friends scare the Sheriff's men away with a trick- after that, Robin believes Conner is a sorcerer. He vows (loudly) to help him in any way he can.
Robin has a group of friends, his 'Merry Men', who consist out of Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan-A-Dale and Will Scarlet.
Robin is in love with the Maid Marian, but had thusfar only tried to woo her by yelling at her about his own accomplishments. This tactic hadn't been very succesful, as Marian actively avoids him. Conner advises Robin to talk softly and compliment her, which turns out to be very helpful. His and Marian's love is important, as a part of the Portal Potion requires a lock of true love.
Robin is also quite clueless in someway for certain things. Conner described that Robin "made Red Riding Hood be like a Rhodes Scholar".

"THERE IS NO NEED TO SHOUT, SORCERER," Robin Hood said. "MY HEARING IS IMPECCABLE. I HAVE THE EARS OF A FOX."
"PLAY US A CHEERFUL TUNE OF MY COURAGE AND GLORY, TO PASS THE TIME AS WE VENTURE HOME."
"THE KNIGHT IS SO OVERWHELMED BY MY PRESENCE, HE IS CONFUSED."
