Impatient, smart, very observant and well educated, Kinsella will not shy away from a fight and isn't afraid to speak his mind among his peers. He is respectful to his superiors and sailors but wills not cut his messmates any slack. He can shout and bring any boy to tears. A bit of a hothead compared to Chandos. He readily disagrees with the other boy,which has led to arguments, and while he may give in to his temper too easily on occasion, overall he is still a good and lively young man.
He is an adoptable character.
