Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Roger

Physical: Roger is described:

...a slight, furtive boy whom no one knew, who kept to himself with an inner intensity of avoidance and secrecy... the shock of black hair, down his nape and low on his forehead, seemed to suit his gloomy face and made what had seemed at first an unsociable remoteness into something forbidding.

Involvement: Roger is a sadist who revels in hurting and causing pain. He knocks over the littluns' sand castles and throws stones at them. In the end it is he who pushes the boulder that kills Piggy. Becoming Jack's right-hand man he is feared by Ralph during the hunt, carrying "death in his hands."
