Percy the Small Engine is the Main Tritagonist of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends and the dueteragonist in the following movies; Calling All Engines, The Great Discovery, Hero Of The Rails, Misty Island Rescue, Blue Mountain Mystery, King of the Railway, Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure, The Great Race and Secrets of the Line but One of the tritagonists in Thomas and the Magic Railroad and the main protagonist in Day of the Diesels and Tale of the Brave.

Percy lives on the Island of Sodor with many other locomotives, including Thomas the Tank Engine, Gordon the Big Engine and Henry the Green Engine. He is the smallest, youngest and probably cheekiest, of the principal steam engine characters. He carries the number 6 on his bunker.

The Fat Controller brought him to Sodor when there was an engine strike due to a shortage of shunting engines. The bigger engines initially tried to bully him, but Percy soon showed that he was more than capable of standing up for himself. After a few years of shunting at the Big Station, the Fat Controller promoted him to goods traffic on Thomas' branch line. When not pulling trucks, he can be seen pulling the post train or even taking Annie and Clarabel when Thomas is busy. Percy's best friends are Thomas and Toby. And he has a crush on Mavis.

He is reasonably experienced, but can still occasionally be a little naive and overconfident. In that sense, he is the perfect foil for Thomas -who can be just as headstrong.

Percy's first appearance in The Railway Series was in book no. 5, Troublesome Engines, originally published in 1950. He was given his own title with book no. 11, Percy the Small Engine.
