Blind Pew is a fictional character from the novel Treasure Island (1882). He is a blind ex-pirate, now beggar and killer, who dies when he is trampled by horses. With Pew and Long John Silver, Stevenson sought to avoid predictability by making the two most dangerous characters in Treasure Island a blind man and a crippled amputee.Stevenson also introduced a dangerous blind man in Kidnapped.
