Huck is certainly a unique character. Twain uses Huck’s character to voice his own ideas about society. Huck differs from greater Southern society and often criticizes the hypocrisy and even cruelty. He denounces organized religion in the opening chapters with the raid on the Sunday school picnic. Huck's relationship with Jim exposes slavery and the evil it inflicts on human beings. This becomes especially poignant when Jim tells Huck about his daughter. Huck also learns that games and clever con-jobs frequently hurt innocent people. Huck develops his own social code, which differs from the old South. We even see Huck stray from his buddy Tom Sawyer who does not share Huck's more human values.
