The next difference that is apparent in both protagonist is the fact that when the barber had the golden Opportunity to kill Captain Torres he did not take his chance. On the other hand, if The sniper had a chance to kill his enemy he would do it without hesitation.

The first deadly sin implemented into the story is pride. Three rioters become aware of their friend being taken by death. The men claim that they will “slay this traitor Death” (371). Although Chaucer knows death not to be man, he personifies it in this tale into the form of a man. This quote demonstrates the deadly sin of pride because the foolish rioters think they can avenge their friend against an unknown enemy.
The characters are given a choice of how they want to use their powers and abilities. Lee Sin from the creators of League of Legends said “Master yourself, master the enemy” which implicates that one must have full control of their lives before they want anything from anyone else. However Elijah was blinded by the madness that consumed him at war. Elijah sought to kill for pure self-satisfaction, and once Xavier realizes this, he decides to do what is right by killing his best friend, for the greater good of what he believes

He can only slay Querig if he kills her protector, Sir Gawain, so they fight and Wistan is victorious. When Sir Gawain is lying on the ground, Beatrice asks if they can bury him. In response to Beatrice’s question, Wistan says, “‘He was a kin of the hated Arthur...yet I’ll not leave him to the crows. Rest assured, mistress, I’ll see to him, and may even lay him down in this pit, beside the creature he so long defended’” (Ishiguro 292). This is a good representation of how Wistan thinks before he acts because he runs by a code of honor.
After the trial, Atticus is confronted by Bob Ewell who then spits on him and Atticus tells Jem and Scout, “He had to take it out on somebody and I’d rather it be me than that houseful of children out there” (249). This shows us that Atticus wants his children to be willing to sacrifice themselves in order to save other people from harm. Furthermore, Atticus displays courage when he believes that Jem killed Bob Ewell and he states, “nobody’s hushing this up. I don’t live that way” (313). The fact that Atticus is willing to risk his son possibly going to jail demonstrates the amount of courage and integrity Atticus has as a person since he wants to do what he believes to morally right.
In Zinn 's book, Nathaniel Bacon is described as a manipulative man, who persuaded the gullible to agree with his ideas and values. The rebellion itself was because Bacon hated both the elite and the indians, and after he was released from prison for being a rebel, he took his 'army ' and began attacking innocent indians. After Bacon had died, Zinn includes the fact that the anti-rebel forces tricked Bacon 's militia into thinking that if they surrendered, the slaves and servants (who made up most of the rebels) would be given freedom. Instead, they took them back to their masters. The governemt strived to stop the rebellion for two reasons: to make a policy to control indians, and to discourage rebellion in the future.
