This is interesting. There are a few candidates here. I would go with Simon. Simon is Golding's Christ figure in the island. He is quiet and shy. Simon rarely speaks and only if there is something important to say. The violent energy of the boys hurts Simon but still he feels the boys are worth saving. Simon is the same at the book. He is still quiet and wise. Like, Christ, Simon dies trying to save the boys from themselves. Throughout the novel, Simon doesn't turn into a savage nor does he take charge and fight Jack. Simon stays the same, a misunderstood savior figure.
