Jack's aggressiveness changes throughout the novel. If you mean by how he was first presented, Jack shows a sense of a boy who commanded obedience through fear. He wasn't a large boy (he was described as bony/skinny) but had an authority about him that seemed to scare his choir. There was an aggressiveness that intimidated the other boys to be submissive to his wishes.
