General Zaroff is a man who sadistically finds challenge in the hunting of humans. He feels that the excitement of hunting is long gone, so he has to find a new adrenaline rush. Obviously Rainsford is a foil in one sense because his hunting skills and thinking skills are superior. Ultimately, Rainsford succeeds in defeating Zaroff, so Rainsford probably thinks differently about being hunted and hunting and thus is transformed for his future.
