Ethan is the secondary tritagonist of Ice Age: Continental Drift. He was a young and laid-back male mammoth who was part of a group of teenage mammoths called The Brat Pack that includes Katie, Steffie and Meghan along with a unnamed male mammoth with brown fur.
Ethan is a teenage woolly mammoth who likes hanging out at the Teenage Hangout and takes a liking to Peaches (Manny and Ellie's teenage daughter) and he becomes her love interest later. He's a thrill loving, daring teenager and he is open minded to Peaches being part of his group that he might have even returned her affections.
But, he is shown to be shallow when he tells Peaches to stop hanging around Louis, a molehog and implies it would be bad to hang around them. However, when Peaches sees she's hurt her friends feelings and that Ethan and his group don't really use common sense; she decides to leave. Ethan rudely adds its bad enough her family is "half-possum". Peaches strikes back telling him there's nothing bad about her family. Moments later, Ethan's Buddy is seen for his second scene.
Peaches becomes angered and leaves them. Ethan, unlike his posse, seems to have some sense as he got the understanding of Peaches' last insults to them and might have felt guilt from hurting her feelings. After Louis helps saving Peaches, Ethan and his group are impressed by his bravery and he calmly asks to hang with him and Peaches, to which Louis kindly accepts.
Personality and Traits
Ethan is a reckless and carefree mammoth who enjoyed a life of fun and games with his crew. He, like the rest of the Brat Pack, valued "coolness," to the point where he told Peaches not to bring Louis with her during their walk, and later showed disdain for her family being "half-possum."
He was also something of a thrillseeker, thinking that narrowly outrunning a landslide was fun. He did show regret for his actions after Peaches admonished him. He showed concern for Louis when he confronted Gutt, thinking the molehog would end up dead. He later asked Louis if he and the Brat Pack could hang out with him, having come to respect the molehog for his heroic actions.
