Simon is the only "Biggun" that cares about the Littluns. As Simon moves through the forest towards his isolation retreat he stops to care for the Littluns,

"Then, amid the roar of bees in the afternoon sunlight, Simon found for them the fruit they could not reach, pulled off the choicest from up in the foliage, passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands."

Simon is a Christ-figure. He cares for the Littlun's like he cares about all the boys on the island, even Jack.
