One thing that made him stand out was that he was built differently than his brothers. “Ever have the teachers and the Leaders pointed to us and frowned and said ‘There is evil in your bones, Equality 7-2521, for your body has grown beyond the bodies of your brothers.” (Rand 18). Equality was also highly intelligent, smarter than his brothers, and he had potential to be an amazing member of the city, but he was never given the chance to be great.
“The Chrysalids” is a novel lived through the eyes of a telepathic child, David Strorm, from central Labrador. Throughout the novel you can easily identify the problems David has to face and notice his lack of being able to problem solve, constantly relying on other characters in the novel. David shows very minimal heroic qualities, and often gets himself in trouble and at home by disobeying his father, Joseph Strorm, and his religion, rules and traditions. David concealed the identity of a blasphemy which is a major crime in his village. David is not the protagonist in this novel because he lacks wisdom and heroic traits that a true protagonist would have.

The innocent actions some take later in life will reward some, and deteriorate others. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger delays his evitable process of growing up partly because of the tragic events that transpired earlier in his life and his ignorance to reality. However , Chris Mccandless differs from Holden in the fact that he fully understands reality but protests to greed of humans and the material possessions of man and still facing the gruesome consequence of his immaturity. Seymour Glass does not relate to the accepted adult community and further isolates himself from his peers. Although he appears immature, he actually is struggling from PTSD from the war and the picture his has for the violent adult man.
Thus, when compared to the flatter and fairer world of the future, Harrison was unbelievable. His enormous bonds and heavy chains couldn’t even prevent his prison breaks and tantrums. Ripping them off like clay, he doesn’t escape from that awful place or attempt to find a better life for himself, as an average reader would expect. He is still a child in heart and mind, and must order and whine for his “rightful” place in life because he doesn’t want or know of any other way. Because of his superiority in talent and strength, compared to his parents, peers, and leaders, Harrison feels he deserves the right to be Emperor but instead is met with a sorrowful ending to his childish

Many of these traits are present in The Pigman by Paul Zindell. However, I have found that the character John lacks enough of these assets that he could possibly grow up to be an unsuccessful adult. John will not be successful in his future because he lacks both honesty and responsibility, even though some people may say he has family boundaries. Honesty is an essential asset to becoming a successful adult. It is obvious in The Pigman that John severally lacks this important trait.
No matter how many failed attempts, Chris continued to persevere. However, in the end he was “forced to return to the alien lake of home”. His life choices, as blatantly stated in the quote, become “narrower and narrower”. He has fewer and fewer options available to escape from his current reality. At a point he manages to escape, even though it is into more turmoil, but in the end he winds up in the same spot, “the alien lake of home.” Due to the life he was born into it became very difficult for Chris to have a larger variety of options to choose from in life.

Piggy served as Ralph’s lieutenant from the beginning to the end.
