A curious and sensitive boy, Benjamin has no idea that he is different from the rest of his family. According to him, he is one of them and the fact that his skin is another colour means very little to him. When backed up into a corner, he tries to defend himself, but his gentle nature means that he can get pushed around by stronger people.
