Captain Hook is a thin man with curly, black hair

… that drapes over his shoulders, a large hooked nose, a thin black mustache that angles upward sharply, and a large chin. He wears an orange sash over his right shoulder that holds his sword scabbard at his left hip and a large crimson hat with a huge lavender feather stuck in it. He’s got a permanent weapon on his hand, his famous hook, although it tends to work against him just as much, because he lacks the discipline to control it.

He is, of course a menacing villain whose image is quickly diminished by his colorful outfit, and mostly, the crocodile.  

He is a black-hearted man who tries to put on airs and pretend to be a gentleman of good taste and style. Yet it turns out he is quite likable in his conflicted personality, and as a consequence, he will never die beyond the first manuscript of Barrie’s story. As Walt Disney said in a story meeting, “The last you see is Hook going like hell. That’s better than having him get caught … the audience will get to liking Hook, and they won’t want to see him killed.”

So for all we know, poor Captain Hook is still running from that crocodile.
