  • Character Analysis for Lord of the Flies
  • Meet Ralph! Ralph is twelve years old and is elected chief of the island by the rest of the boys. Ralph can be described as a natural-born leader because he takes action from the beginning and is looked up to by the little boys. Ralph also establishes a feeling of authority for the rest of the boys by using the conch.
  • Next character is Simon! Simon is a good-hearted character that is different from the other boys. He is described as the "God-like character" in the book because he is the only trace of good and innocence on the island after most of the boys turn to the savage side.Simon is different because he has seizures and wanders off to a secret serene place in the island.
  • Meet Piggy! We meet Piggy from the beginning of the novel and he is bullied and put down from the other boys for his weight and specs. Piggy has many great ideas but, no one seems to listen to him. He is indirectly responsible for the conch, but never gets any credit.
  • Next character is Jack! Jack is a violent, angry boy, who strives to be chief . He is obsessed with hunting and the idea to kill. He can be described as a complete savage and what happens when people lose their humanity. He is a symbol of bad, loss of humanity. He despises Piggy and tries to turn everyone against Ralph. Also, he is very responsible for the pig on the stick covered in flies, hence the title.
  • Meet Roger! Roger is a young boy who can be considered Jack's follower during the hunting. Roger is a symbol of pure evil, or somethings described as a terror. He is responsible for Piggy's dramatic death with the rock. Roger isn't one of the main characters but his symbolism is a huge key to Golding's themes.
