However, the beast is actually just inside of each of them. The fear that manifests in each of the children causes the craziness that ensues, and it is in many ways, the beast.

Jack feels the need to alter his appearance simply to please his developing savage tendencies. This demonstrates Jack’s willingness to kill on account of the fact that he feels inclined to become a new person, just to kill an animal.
