In various encounters with other travelers on the road, the boy continually displays his faith in humanity and his humbling trust in others. Despite their near brushes with brutal violence and death, the boy consistently pleads with his father to help others in need. The boy becomes a Christ-figure. He shows empathy in a world that has none: he shows goodness in a world with nothing but evil.
