When a group of private school boys' plane crashes onto a desserted island the boys must find their own ways to survive, including making up their own rules and government. Lord of the Flies can be read as an Allegory and shows the concept or human capabilities of evil.

Ralph: The first boy we meet who is voted to be their leader.
Piggy: the second boy we are introduced to. Overweight, asthma, glasses, disliked and disrespected among the group.
Simon: The most innocent among the boys who seems to be closer to nature. His words and thoughts frequently lead the reader to the major themes in the novel.
Jack: leader of the choir boys, forms his own tribe after a disagreement about who is really the leader and how things are being done on the island.
