He couldn’t save his brother from ‘falling off the cliff’, so he has a desire to help others, and do what he wished he could have
Black men were not men at all, but they were property. Huck struggled with this throughout the book as he felt guilt and condemnation for not returning Jim back to his rightful owner, Widow Douglas. But even in the peculiar relationship, it was confusing as to which would be the father figure, Huck or Jim. Jim definitely filled the role as protector, when he shielded Huck from seeing corpse of his godforsaken Pap. Jim also displayed the image of father that would give up his own life for his boy when stayed with Tom after he got shot.
