From the book Crispin the Cross of Lead by Avi, the 13 year old protagonist Crispin started off as a runaway from his home in Stromford Village after his mother died because he was wrongly accused of thievery, thus resulting in him being declared a wolf’s head. While on the run Crispin met Bear, who challenged him, protected him, and taught him. In the end, Crispin’s new self was challenged as he risked his life to save Bear in Great Wexley. Throughout the story Crispin matures tremendously, starting off as timid and sinful, then growing to question his background and be more courageous, and finally becoming free and brave. Crispin began the start of the story as a fearful and cowardly young boy.
Starting off as a young no-named peasant who has never seen the world, he had little to no experience in travel, when advised to flee the village; he had to be heroic in order to survive. For instance, when he senses that there is a spy after Bear, he goes out of his way to warn those at Bears meeting even if it means imperiling his own life. As stated in Crispin: The Cross of Lead, “… I went to the main street, and ran in the direction Bear had gone. I had to warn him.” (Avi, 224). He cared deeply for Bear and worked up the courage to go and warn the tavern.
