The character of Jack in Lord of the Flies serves to highlight the uneven cruelty and power distributed through society. His character depicts a battle between good and evil, this theme is one that was influenced by Golding's own experiences in World War two. Jack represents the breakdown in society and how the “blood thirsty”, savagery in human nature can cause the fall of man and lead to autocratic tribalism. Jack’s craving for power is made evident right from the beginning of the novel. when the boys decide that they “ought to have a chief”, Jack jumps at the chance with “simple arrogance”, and states that its because he is “chapter chorister”, and can “sing C sharp”,so in other words, for no valid reason at all.
Jack becomes successful in gaining power because he rules by fear and with intimidation and brute force. Even the army of hunters fear Jack when he “beat Wilfred”(176) for no apparent reason. Although Jack’s irrational decisions appease the little ones, his actions hurt the boys’ chance of rescue. As time passes on the island, Jack’s own bloodlust prioritizes itself before the need to be rescued. In order to protect the little ones from the beast, he makes an offering “for the beast.”(151), creating the basis of a religion.

Over dinner they talk about their hunting experiences and about big game. General Zaroff explains he has hunted everything and has become bored with it. When Rainsford discovers the General is suggesting the idea of hunting humans he does not approve and calls Zaroff a murderer not a hunter. After refusing to go hunting with Zaroff, Rainsford is now in the reverse role of being the hunted.

It was not external, but lay deep within him. It was the fear of himself, lest he should be found to resemble his father. Even as a little boy he had resented his father’s failure and weakness, and even now he still remembered how he had suffered when a playmate had told him that his father was agbala.
