Realizing the killer who was handed a better childhood turned into a ruthless killer leads the audience into blaming Dick completely for his actions as he has nothing to fall back on as a scapegoat. Perry can be said to have a sense of level headedness about him, although not enough to stop the murder altogether. A large contribution of the tolerance for Perry comes from his sensitivity for those who cannot control themselves sexually.

When Bob Ewell attacked Jem and Scout, it made people furious.
(White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing. He is unable to grow as a person for most of the story after due to his own inner struggles, but he does change his mind about and regret many things, like when he killed Gareth and Gaheris, “’You couldn't help it.'
