Before being chosen Ender wears a strange monitor that lets the heads of the military to see stuff as Ender does. Ender's older brother Peter and his older sister Valentine also wore this, although neither was selected, or did they have it for as long of duration as Ender, and Peter will never get over this. Peter hates Ender, and even when the monitor is taken off it doesn't do anything to decrease Peters anger. The it is the same of Ender's friends in school, and he is forced into brutally beating and killing the leader of a group of bullies in order to defend himself. Even though Valentine tries to protect Ender from Peter, he is only protected from his brother when Colonel Graff of the International Fleet comes to take Ender away to Battle School.
“A Spartan father had no right to decide whether to rear his newly born son or not.” (Document A) If his son was healthy, he would be sent away at seven years old to train for the military he would soon be apart of. If his son was not healthy, he would be left outside to die. This puts strain on a family, causes grief for the siblings, and is very distressing for the mother. Another disadvantage of Sparta's military is that the boys only learned reading and writing to a certain extent, since their military was their main priority. According to Document D, “The Spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned from the country,...” If an man wasn’t interested in fighting and wanted a strong education, he was simply out of luck since in Sparta, killing others was more important than schooling.
Grendel was known to have attacked innocent soldiers, however; Beowulf attacks, and kills Grendel whereas, his mother will soon take out revenge on his killer. Grendel who is the monster, hated to see the men celebrate their joy after winning victories.

After Ender destroys the bugger planet in the final simulation, Graff tells him the truth, that he has been killing real buggers, that the simulated games are not actually simulations. Graff’s reasoning is this: “Of course we tricked you into it. That’s the whole point, [...] It had to be a trick or you couldn’t have done it. We had to have a commander with so much empathy that he would think like the buggers, [...] So much compassion that he could win the love of his underlings [...] But somebody with that much compassion could never be the killer we needed.” (Scott Card, 342) His explanation demonstrates how he believes that sacrificing Ender’s feelings by lying to him is necessary to defeat the buggers to save humanity from possible destruction, emphasizing the theme of manipulation for the common good. They make Ender do what he hates most, hurting others, by isolating him into not trusting anybody, moulding him to the perfect commander, then tricking him into believing he was only battling simulations.
In Heywood Broun’s “The Fifty-First Dragon,” local coward Gawaine le Cœur-Hardy evolves to an influential knight through the use of an enchanted word. Sword in hand, he traverses the land cleaving heads off of numerous dragons. Although most can’t relate to Gawaine’s achievements, slaying dragons doesn’t make one invincible to personality faults. Throughout all of this, I could find three personality traits that I could relate to, in agreeable or disagreeable ways. Gawaine and I may share similar traits such as laziness and forgetfulness, however, we contrast greatly with our athletic abilities.
He feels hated and ugly for much of his childhood, but after meeting Arthur, he trains his hardest to overcome his appearance and become the greatest knight in the entire world. In most versions in the tale of king Arthur, Sir Lancelot is depicted as a handsome, charming man. But in the once and future king, he is ugly and deformed. This leaves room for much more character development, but he finds this difficult due to his inner contradictions, “For one thing, he liked to hurt people. It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing.
