In chapter eight of Lord of the Flies, Jack and his "hunters" kill a wild sow and paint their bodies like savages. Underneath his painted face, Jack becomes bolder and invites Ralph, Piggy, and the other boys to join their feast. At the feast in chapter nine, Jack also offers those who join his tribe his protection from the "beast" in the jungle. Jack's deterioration into savagery and his separation from Ralph and Piggy's group is finalized in these scenes.
