“ The dog–like(Jack), Uncomfortably on all fours yet unheeding his discomfort. Here was loop of creeper with a tendril pendant from a node. The tendril was polished on the under side; pigs, passing through the loop, brushed it with their bristly hide.” (Golding 61)
Jack is on the ground, using his Id instinct to determine if a pig has passed this trail.
“ Listen, Ralph. Never mind what’s sense. That’s gone-”
“ -Never mind about the chief-”
“ -you got to go for your own good” (Golding 188).
Unity: Samneric symbolizes unity because they do everything together from helping each other complete tasks to finishing each other’s sentences. They act as one and the boys on the island start calling them Samneric because they never leave each other.
Samneric are very loyal to Ralph and do whatever has to be done without question. Even when Jack rebels they don’t go with him because they know its wrong and they don’t want to hurt Ralph. They stay with Ralph and resist Jack’s attempts to sway everyone from his noble beliefs. They go with Jack in the end because he tortures them and forces them to become part of his savagery. Even in the end, they are still loyal to Ralph.
“ You got to go, Ralph. You go away now-”(Golding 266)
When they see Ralph they told him to escape while he can instead of turning him in.
