The sixth and the last man in the gathering was an opportunist. As the poet puts it —

The last man of this forlorn group
Did nought except for gain.
Giving only to those who gave
Was how he played the game.

Though this man apparently had no prejudice against anyone, he did not give anything without making a gain for himself. His motto was to give something only in return of something. That is why he did not share his wood. So, evidently, he was an opportunist.
