Somewhat surprisingly, perhaps, Livesey and Trelawney, the respectable members of local society, become boyishly excited and “filled … with delight” upon seeing Flint’s map. Rather than turn the documents over to the authorities and turn their backs on the dark underworld of piracy and thievery, they are thrilled at the idea of becoming pirate adventurers themselves. The upstanding Trelawney immediately launches into a schoolboy’s fantasy of finding “favorable winds, a quick passage, and not the least difficulty in finding the spot, and money to eat—to roll in—to play duck and drake with ever after.” The image the pirates have left in Trelawney’s mind is not one of crime and murder, but one of fun, games, and riches. The readiness of these responsible and professional grown men to become adventurous boys again is part of a theme central to this novel: Stevenson implies that there is a little pirate in everyone, old or young, nobleman or beggar. In this sense, Jim begins to emerge not as the token boy in the novel, but as representative of all the characters, no matter what their age or position in life.
