Alan Breck Stewart is a Jacobite, involved in the '45 and now on the run from the English authorities. At his first  appearance in the story, he's a courier, bringing a load of money to Bonnie Prince Charlie, but his boat is struck  by the ship David is a prisoner on. Once aboard, the captain and crew plan to jump him for the money but David tells  him their scheme and helps fight off the crew. When the ship is wrecked, he escapes both the crew and the water, and  is separated from David for a time. Once reunited, he proves an able and loyal friend, staying with David and  guiding him through the Highlands to finally expose Ebenezer Balfour as a kidnapper.

Alan is brash, proud, honorable and loyal to his country, his cause and his friends. He likes fancy dress, keeping his  French outfit despite being hunted by the law. His skill with a bagpipe is only surpassed by Robin Oig, a rival,  whom he looses a bagpipe challenge to with good grace. He trains David to use the sword but refuses to fight him  when David, in his sickness, challenges him, his loyalty to David is so strong he throws away his sword.
