Prideful because all he tries to do is chance Doodle rather than letting him be who he is . Not letting himself accept himself the way he is. Brother's pride pushes him to give Doodle an existence away from his bed, and it is his obsession that leads to Doodle's tragic demise. Brother's pride did create a facsimile (copy) of real life for Doodle, but in the end, it crumbled him, brought to its knees by pride and selfishness. Brother did love Doodle, but his ego overshadowed the fact the he was just trying to protect Doodle from a world that doesn't tolerate those that are different.
But he was only playing a trick. This shows how he is willing to mess with people's minds while still having fun in the process. Because of his mixed family, he might not have such a strong connection with his kids, so he has to get in touch with his childish

Furthermore, he still held on to hope that he could rationalize his differences, and prove to his society that he was not a curse, but a blessing. Equality is still striving to be likewise his brothers, this “box” is ultimately his purpose for living, as it is going to make him accepted, the goal in his society.

For once Buck learns to adjust, “his development was rapid.” Experience is his teacher, like, Sister Carrie’s or Stephen Crane’s Maggie. But his morality was not questioned by the reader because Buck is a dog. London chooses to ignore the moral implications of Buck’s thievery. For Buck’s “new” way of life was new to him only momentarily, London closes out Buck’s discourse on the law of club and fang.

Once again, a similarity arises from a contrast—despite the obvious social restrictions—where Bender relates to Brian, in the effect that a family protrudes on a child’s life and well-being. They are both products of the people who are supposed to guide them. This similarity echoes throughout the film, and becomes best seen when the group eats lunch during detention. Bender brings out no lunch, but Brian opens a bag packed with apple juice, a PB&J, and soup (seemingly packed by his mother). This list of items prompts Bender to make fun of Brian; hinting that Bender sees Brian as pampered.
People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.” The traumatic experience of Brother seeing Doodle in such a state was when he learned the lesson of “What goes around comes around.” Questions and Answers: What do you think would have happened if Brother actually followed through with killing Doodle? I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life.
In the story, “The Scarlet Ibis” author James Hurst uses indirect characterization through the thoughts and feeling of the protagonist towards his little brother Doodle to establish a meaningful theme.

In the beginning of the story, the protagonist talks about how his baby brother’s crawling made him resemble a doodle bug. This is why he calls his brother Doodle. “Renaming my brother was perhaps the kindest thing I ever did for him, because nobody expects much from someone named Doodle,” (3) the protagonist proceeds to explain.
