Jack

Deliberate mistake: In Paris' death scene, he blows alcohol onto his torch that illuminates the creatures around him. However the area is still illuminated after the light from his torch has disappeared. (01:12:05)

More quotes from Pitch Black

Question: When Riddick says that the monsters can track them because the girl is bleeding, and Jack is revealed to be a girl, is it her period that he is talking about? Did Riddick smell it, too?

Answer: Yes, it is her period. Considering that he lived in darkness for years, it's possible that he smells it too. It's also equally likely he realized she was a girl and that the creatures were all riled up and put two and two together. But the first explanation fits Riddick's character better.
