On the other hand Jim the slave truly cared for Huck and had helped him look deep inside himself and caused an internal battle between Huck's conscious and heart. There is still an argument to be made for which is Huck's "true father". Pap was introduced in chapter 5 and the first thing he says to Huck is '"You think you're a good deal of a big-bug, don't you?"' (28).
