Piggy is a static character.  Unlike a dynamic character who grows and changes throughout the course of a novel, Piggy is unchanging, boring, whiny, and irritating.  Piggy never changes.  He consistently whines about his asthma.  He consistently whines about his specs.  He consistently whines about everything that happens on the island and with the boys to Ralph.  He is consistently the butt of others' jokes, yet does nothing to try not to be made fun of or to fit in.  The only thing that changes for Piggy is what happens to him at then end of the novel.
