In this story, I believe the stage, meeting with the god or goddess, was early on when she received the one of a kind sword that Hanzo crafted for her. After creating this sword Hanzo stated “If on your journey you encounter god, god will be cut”. The stage of temptation doesn’t appear in this story because of her dedication to fulfill her vengeance in honor of her daughter.

When she does this, she finds out that her daughter, Bb, is still alive and confronts Bill about it after putting Bb to bed.

She also aids him afterwards when the other gods are contemplating whether Odysseus is guilty or not. They decide he isn’t by saying, “There will be killing till the score is paid.” Odysseus’ last mentor and helper is his family. His memories of Penelope and Telemachus kept him going and gave him the encouragement he needed to come home. Penelope, although surrounded by suitors, stayed faithful to her husband. She says, “Eurymachus, all my excellence, my beauty and figure, were ruined by the immortals … If he (Odysseus) were to come back to me and take care of my life, then my reputation would be more great and splendid.” The same cannot be said for Odysseus, though, as he cheated on Penelope with Circe and Calypso.
Sun was furious with Moon’s doing, Sun wanted to fight Moon but couldn’t, since she was almost powerless, and she had no scepter. She began to collect light in a magical satchel, and after a month, she had enough light, she let the light escape, and it painted the sky with bright colours, Sun had gained her power once again.

The Resemblance of Gods and Humans Throughout all religions, gods have always been seen as superior in every way possible. The division between humans and gods has always been prevalent and prominent.
