Hobbes says, “And the same are the bonds by which men are bound and obliged, bonds that have their strength not from their own nature...but from fear of some evil consequences upon the rupture” (81). People are motivated to preserve bonds through passion for life, aversion to hurt, and reasoning the consequences of a broken bond. Through recognizing that bonds are purely symbolic, it becomes apparent that the sovereign must always stand for strength and authority in order to rule successfully. Man is then willing to restrain his appetite for the sake of
Faber had said, “Having trouble?(179). Since Faber knew how to fix it, it shows his morals were high enough to help. This also relates to him doing what he needs to do for his country because he knew he would probably get a ride from him.

In the book, The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy, one of the main themes is loyalty. In the Scarlet Pimpernel, different kinds of loyalty are seen especially from Sir Percy's men and Chauvelin's men. Sir Percy's men are loyal to him because they love him, are inspired by him, and because they are respected by Sir Percy. Chauvelin's men are loyal because they fear him, he promises money, and because he threatens them. One example of the different loyalty Percy's men and Chauvelin's men have is that Percy's men are motivated by love while Chauvelin's men are motivated by fear.
The Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “loyalty” as “the quality or state or an instance of being loyal” (Webster’s Dictionary).

Heroes in stories are known for their act of extreme loyalty where they even risk their life to save someone close to them. Robin Hood and his friends are examples of heroes with intense loyalty” (Speed Up Career).

No matter what the task was, he stands up for his people to show them that a hero never backs down no matter if they are bigger and stronger than them. He sacrificed his life for his people for they had honored him for everything he has done for them (Georgianna, 1987). On the other hand, in the article of The Hero as Keeper of Human Polity, it describes how Beowulf is a good example to be a productive art. Not only does Beowulf represent heroic in the poem, but the poem is presenting “virtue as an act that sustains and vice as act that disrupts human brotherhood” (Kroll, 1986). Therefore, both of the articles are expressing and showing that heroic isn’t just something that they do for good.

Hassan is always defending Amir and proves himself a loyal friend to Amir repeatedly, defending Amir when he is attacked and always being ready to listen to him. He shows his bravery, selflessness and intelligence throughout the whole novel even though he is uneducated. That’s primarily because he has very accurate instincts and a giant and passionate heart. However, he is touched by his reality: he is from a poor ethnic group, called the Hazaras, considered an inferior ethnicity in Afghan society.
