Jack: A very skinny boy with freckles and blue eyes. "...he was tall, thin and bony; and his hair was red beneath the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without silliness. Out of this face stared two light blue eyes.." (20)
He represents the evil or savage within a person.
Bossy and rude: " 'You're talking too much,' said Jack Merridew "Shut up, Fatty" (21)
A natural leader in his choir: "The tall boy yelled at them 'Choir! Stand still!' Wearily obedient, the choir huddled into line..." (20)
Jack's personality has not changed much since getting stranded on the island, it just intensified. He is a whole new level of rude,savage and controlling at this point.
Acts tough and tries to make others feel bad: ¨Jack sneered at him. ´frightened?´ ´Course i´m frightened. Who wouldn't be?¨(101)
The lead hunter on the island: "Jack's face went so white...'this is a hunter's job' " (103)
