All in all, due to his ruthless personality traits, Creon is the tragic hero in the play, not Antigone. If he didn 't express his anger and aggression it could have prevented many deaths. He could have prevented his wife and son 's death if he would have put his pride to the side, and was not so stubborn.

Victor’s actions show us that he despised his creation. What he didn’t realize was that his actions in trying to carry out his plan, were actually killing him slowly, because he was not capable of fulfilling this knowledge correctly. Towards the end of the novel, the only thing Victor cared about was getting revenge on his creation for killing his loved ones.
