Description: Usually President Oaks is one of the gentler priests when dealing with the boys. His reputation is that of a caring, soft manwho has nothing but good in his heart. This makes him the perfect selection to walk Elder Packer through The Covenant ceremony. Since he started his mission, all the men have taken special care to treat Packer with compassion and empathy because of how vulnerable he seems to be in everyday life. Something from Packer’s past has made him an emotional young man, and anyone can see it. As President Oaks watches Packer crawl on the floor towards him, he remembers his own struggles with his emotions as a teenager. He was just discovering his attraction for men, and he was scared that he would be discovered by his friends. He thought that if anyone knew, he would be shunned and cast off. So, he kept everything a secret, trying to hide his internal emotions anyway he could. However, because of the constant suppression, Oaks started to have outbursts.
