[RALPH] (Male 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) The most charismatic of the boys on the island who is both affable and athletic. He is capable of deep thoughts, even if they sometimes tie him up in knots. Ralph looks like a natural leader, but is conflicted about being one. He is more sensitive then he lets on.
[JACK] (Male 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) Not a boy of intellect, but of physical strength. Fearless with a tremendous survival instinct. He has his own kind of charisma. He is fierce, fiery, and funny. Jack is also athletic, but could be smaller in stature than Ralph. He’s totally uncompromising and very perceptive about the other boys’ weaknesses, hence a great manipulator.
[PIGGY] (Male 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) He is chubby, smart, and completely lacking in social skills. He mostly speaks without guile and is wholly unaware that words have consequences. Basically sweet-natured, but with a reservoir of anger bubbling underneath. Probably a Libra based on the fact he strives on order, procedure and the democratic process of running things. He cannot adapt to the spontaneity that exists on the island. Leads a regimented existence and craves a society where there are rules and regulations.
[ROGER] (Male 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) He is quiet and dangerous. He’s probably on the smaller side and at first doesn’t draw attention to himself, then all at once becomes a dark, dangerous creature who can be extremely intimidating. Merciless. (Napoleon complex)
[SIMON] (Male 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) One of the younger boys in the group. Smart, but a little other-worldly. A kid who observes the world around him in a very different way than his peers. He is an extreme innocent.
[SAM and ERIC] (Males 14-17 Could be any ethnicity) Twins, on the younger side, about the same age as Simon. They are a slightly comic duo who mean well, but will do what’s necessary in order to survive, but they are followers, not leaders. Without each other they are fairly useless.
