Even though they are different types of heroes, all four of them have certain traits and actions that make them heroes. A hero(ine) must help others in a significant way and fight the evil that troubles the peole (whether the hero(ine) is victorious or not). They are compassionate towards others (sometimes even the villains), brave while fighting the evil, and persistent when facing obstacles. Heroes are an essential part of one’s life. Everyone has a hero that they look up to and sometimes even expect the hero to save them when they are in trouble.
An outcast is the exact opposite; it is a person who is not accepted or has no place in society nor a particular group (citation).The heros in Beowulf fight to the death for their people and have great pride in their beliefs. The outcast on the other hand want to ruin the hero 's lives and have a great amount of hatred for them. The main archetypal hero in Beowulf is Beowulf himself. Beowulf is the definition of a hero. Beowulf had plenty of successful accomplishments.
What comes to mind when you hear the word courage? Many people conjure up images of a brave soldier advancing under enemy fire to rescue a wounded comrade, while others visualize a firefighter rushing into a burning building to retrieve an elderly woman. Although these certainly fall into the category of courageous acts, they cause many people to have misconceptions about the true definition of courage, leading them to associate it only with heroic deeds. They believe, that to have courage, a person cannot possess any fear. However, some of the most courageous people in history fell victim to fear, and they continued to perform brave acts.

He completes his goal to be remembered in the minds of his people through his slaying of Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven. But, he loses his close companion Enkidu and his chance at a restored youth. He goes from being someone who throws his weight around and uses his strength to take what he wants to someone who is respected and revered as a hero by the people of his town. However, I do not see him to be a hero. Yes, he changes for the better and completes heroic acts along the way, but many things he does are done to help improve his reputation or used to show off.
These are the major themes because the police officers and many people that were working during the time of 9/11 were so courageous and brave. Officers wanted to stay until sundown and after because they knew there were more people to be rescued and that were stuck underneath the rubble.

BeoWulf was always alone, meaning that he did have a few people helping him but everybody resigned last moment because they were scared of the monsters. And some of the soldiers were even killed. So BeoWulf always defeated all the monsters on his own. BeoWulf was always balanced out, other than the fact that he had to travel multiple times in and out. He would either travel to The Land of Dane or his home or inside the city to find or defeat a monster.
the Count of Monte Cristo slowly achieved justice through his own works by bringing Danglars, Fernand, Villefort and Caderousse to ruin but later on learned a valuable lesson that only God can punish the wicked and enjoyed the rest of his life with Haydee. The main goal of the character was to pursue revenge and bring forth vengeance unto everyone who was involved in the false accusation of Edmond’s said disloyalty. He was eager to set things right and for justice to be served. The hindrance of the Count of Monte Cristo in fulfilling his task was the risk of revealing his true identity of being Edmond Dantes. By affirming his true character, he can possibly be arrested again since he was still considered as a criminal to the law at a specific part of the book and not be able to fulfill his purpose.
Many say Courageousness is standing up for something you know is wrong, speaking up when no one wants to listen, taking action in something that many others consider unwanted, I believe that courage is a combination of all of these.n the novel of Roll Of Thunder Hear my cry, Mildred D Taylor created a character named Stacey who will do anything in order to protect those around him (especially family) Stacey was courageous because he went to places that were against the rules or somewhere that not many kids his age should go to, Stacey destroyed the bus by digging a ditch, and took initiative a few times.

Have you ever gone somewhere that you shouldn 't have or that common sense says is a bad idea, because Stacey did exactly that. Stacey has gone to many places that he shouldn 't have or
Many believe that “that heroism comes naturally to some, and others can learn altruism using methods such as compassion” (Banham 312). Most heroes are commonly described as handsome and strong, almost as if they look like a God; and because of that, some are even treated as if they are royalty. Unfortunately, some heroes abuse their fame and are overtaken with self-pride or hubris. Even though both protagonists in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Beowulf vary in personality, both characters are defined as heroes based on their heroic deeds. In the story Beowulf, the hero is described as a leader who risks his life for the good of his people and kingdom, someone who shows bravery, strength, and exemplifies a great amount of generosity and love for his people.
