Percival Wemys Maddison also known as Percival Williams Maddison is a littlun in Lord of the Flies. He is described as "mouse-colored and not very attractive even to his mother", despite he's a cutie in the 1963 movie. He cries several times over the course of the book.

The Beast

During a meeting about "the beast", Percival claims that the beast comes out of the sea. His survival mantra is to repeat his name and address frequently, but when rescued, he has forgotten his name and address and merely stammers "I'm, I'm..." This is described as "Percival Wemys Madison sought in his head for an incantation that had faded clean away." 

  • Percival is the second character whose full name we were given. The first happens to be Jack Merridew
