Simon is originally a chior member, but is very odd, the other boys think he is "batty". He suffers from fainting fits (epilepsy?) and is very prophetic. Could Golding have wanted him to symbolise a Jesus figure?

In "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding, it is Simon who discovers that the figure they have mistaken for the "beast" during a storm is actually a dead paratrooper. Simon is a character known for his empathy and deeper understanding of the situation on the island.

The book simply described the dead body as a 'figure' which is attached to a parachute. Whether it was a paratrooper or more likely a pilot who had ejected from a damaged plane is never mentioned. The name of the figure is never mentioned either.

He is involved in an airplane crash that leaves him stranded on a deseart island. He witnesses the Lord of the Flies during a seizure and it either torn apart or beaten to death by the other boys and is washed out to sea afterwards.
