The boys respected him for his hunting, but after the death of Simon he became even more feared by Ralph and Piggy. The resentment for Ralph that Jack carried from near enough the beginning was the fuel for Ralph's attempted death.

At first, Jack could not overcome his emotions and kill a pig for survival , but by the end of the novel Jack kills numerous pigs for only blood and power without a second thought.
