The woods was the only safe way to get out doors, but with the new rich neighbors moving in, there was nothing but darkness. The population law destroyed luke 's life by making him live indoors with the shades down and the dark colored room. In “Among the Hidden” there is a very dark tone and it really affects his life. The dark tones are the wood being cut down, the darkness of his room and the windows that are never open. Luke feels left out and should have a choice to be a citizen and go outside no matter what the law says.
In the myth of Cronus there is a prophecy that one of Cronus’ children will defeat him. He eats his children but the prophecy comes true when his wife, Rhea, tricks him. Zeus eventually overthrows him. In both myths characters who start out good end up doing bad things to friends and family for power. In the myth of Cronus he ate his kids to keep power. In the myth of The Lightning Thief, The Big Three would destroy each other for power.
“But now at last our new King is coming; Creon of Thebes.” After Creon sends Antigone to live in a cave until death, he realizes a mistake he’s made and tries to get her out. He realized it’s too late to try and save her. She's already dead, so is everyone he loved. Creon is a tragic hero because he was born into nobility, had an endowed with a tragic flaw, and realized they have made an irreversible mistake.

From the beginning Oedipus was destined to fulfill a terrible prophecy, but through particular events that follow the steps of the Hero’s Journey, Oedipus becomes a powerful king of Thebes, only to be destroyed by the prophecy that should have ended his life as a child. The Hero’s Journey typically leads to self-confidence and power, however; the Hero’s Journey of Oedipus leads to his tragic demise. The Hero’s Journey lays out the steps of Oedipus’s future actions, which create suspense, fear, pity, and other emotions that captivates the audience. Similar to many famous stories, Oedipus the King, written by Sophocles in 430 B.C., follows the Hero’s Journey path, which is evident in Oedipus’s departure, initiation, and return.
A tragic hero is defined as a man or woman of high standing and respect. A person who has many positive character or personality traits, but has one major character flaw. This flaw will ultimately be the downfall of the hero. They also have the ability to endure great suffering. Also the audience must relate to the character but also accept that their downfall was necessary. Antigone easily demonstrates all of these qualities through her short and tragic life.
“Not so self-centered that you never listen to other people” (Hugh Hefner). In the story of Antigone, Creon shows the characteristics of a tragic hero, as he is the king he shows his self-confident and he does not recognize his flaws until the end of the story. All of this leads into his downfall in the tragedy and causes him to realized what he had done. Creon is a tragic hero because of his self-righteousness, his excessive pride, and he does not listen to the opinion of others.
“Whatever I touch has come to nothing.” Creon shouted this when he met his downfall. Antigone is about a princess named Antigone who buried her brother for moral beliefs. This was illegal at the time in the city of Thebes because the first thing that Creon did as king was make the law that no one can bury Polyneices and she was sentenced to death for this. Creon, king of Thebes, filled the prophecy and met his downfall with everyone he cared about had died and lead him to emotional death. A tragic hero is a person of noble birth with heroic or potentially heroic qualities. This person is fated by the Gods or by some supernatural force to doom and destruction, or at least to great suffering. Birth into nobility, responsibility for their own fate, and endowed with a tragic flaw, most strongly identify Creon as the tragic hero of Sophocles 's Antigone.
Yes, I believe Cleomedes’ actions map onto Maurizio’s “Five traits of Greek Heroes”. Maurizio’s first trait was that “a hero was understood to be a man who died.” (436) in Cleomedes’ case this maps onto the five traits because in the passage Cleomedes dies. Furthermore, his death is shrouded in mystery because no one knows how he died. The passage mentions “they broke open the boards of the chest, but found no Cleomedes” this incident adds ambiguity to his death. This ambiguity corresponds with another trait, mentioned by Maurizio, which states that “Heros die prematurely, violently or mysteriously.” (437) The third trait is that “Heroes perform extraordinary deeds that may or may not be moral” (436) Cleomedes illustrates this trait in
A tragic hero is a great or virtuous character in a dramatic tragedy who is destined for suffering and defeat. In the story of Antigone there are two possible tragic hero's; Antigone and Creon.

Who starts out at the top, but ends up at the bottom? Who has everything, but ends up with nothing? Who suffers a fate worse that death? That’s right, the tragic hero. Antigone, a play written by Sophoclese has a classically flawed tragic hero. Creon, the king of Thebes, perfectly fits the wrole of tragic hero. His’ tragic flaws and downfalls make him the best fit for the role. His actions and consequences support the idea that he is the tragic hero, rather than Antigone, another main character.
