The Parachutist is involved in some sort of battle above the island and he floats down and scares Samneric who think he is the beast.
- In the 1990 movie, he was replaced with a character named Captain Benson, the Pilot. He was with the boys at the beginning. Because of the accident, he lost his conscience - but he was still alive so the boys had to take care of him. Especially Simon helped him but he could not recover. One night he went missing. He, unconsciously, went into a cave and died there. So the boys mistook him for the beast. It was again Simon, who, using a green light, discovered who he really was. Before he could herald his friends, he was sacrificed for a beastly carnival.
