Jack Merridew:
An evil yet effective leader

Inability to kill the pig
"The pause was only long enough for them to understand what an enormity the downward stroke would be."
Becoming the Mask
"He capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing of its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness."
Killing Simon
Jack's inner darkness shows and breaks away from civilization (killing the pig,becoming the mask, then Simon)
However, Jack was a successful leader
Formed a tribe
He creates a sense of nationalism(Hitler)
The Election

"The circle of boys broke into applause. Even the choir applauded; and the freckles on Jack's face disappeared under a blush of mortification."
