  • Simon
    • Appearance
      • A lot of his personality is portrayed by his eyes.
        • 'so bright they had deceived Ralph into thinking him delightfully gay and wicked.'
      • He is described as a weak and secretive person.
        • 'a skinny, vivid little boy, with a glance coming up from under a hut of straight hair that hung down, black and course.'
      • He isn't as tall as the big'uns but not as small as the littl'uns.
        • 'If Simon walks in the middle of us...then we can talk over his head.'
    • Speech
      • Simon speaks with wisdom and prophecy making him a Godly figure in the novel.
        • 'You'll get back to where you came from.'
      • Like other mystics, Simon asks questions the other boys cannot answer. They require anstract thought and courageous action.
        • 'What else is there to do?'
      • Simon speaks to spread his enlightenment - like other religious figures.
        • 'What I mean is...maybe it's just us.'
    • Opinions of others
      • Simon agrees mostly with Ralph's ideas and disagrees with Jack.
        • 'I mean the way things are. They dream. You can hear 'em. Have you been awake at night?'
      • He admires Ralph as a leader and stands up for Piggy.
        • Simon gives Piggy his meant when Jack won't.
        • 'Go on being chief.'
      • He cares for the littl'uns and is popular among them.
        • '...pulled off the choicest from up in the foliage, passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands.'
    • Bahaviour
      • Simon acts morally and with kindness because he believes in the inherent value of doing good.
        • 'All day I've been working with Simon. No one else. They're off bathing, or eating, or playing...'
      • Simon is the only boy who doesn't seem to be afraid of the forest because he knows he is safer alone than with the other boys.
        • 'I'll go if you like. I don't mind, honestly.'
      • He is like Jesus
        • Helps others
        • Dies for spreading his word(the truth).
