His uncles, the 400 Mimixcoas, who hated Mixcoatl, killed and buried him. Quetzalcoatl looked for his father and found his bones and buried them in the Hill of Mixcoatl (Mixcoatepetl). Informed of this, the murderers, Apanecatl, Zolton, and Cuilton, told Quetzalcoatl that they would be angry if he inaugurated (drilled with the fire sticks) his temple (on the hill) by sacrificing a rabbit or a serpent, because the required sacrifices were an eagle, a jaguar, and a kind of wolf. Quetzalcoatl told the three animals that they would not die, but that, on the contrary, they would eat the three uncles to inaugurate the temple. He went to the temple through an underground gallery and lit the inaugural fire.
To this end he builds a giant monstrous cadaver of different parts that he recovered from other bodies, he assembles this and uses lightning to try to reanimate it. He succeeds but his success leads his creation to kill a large part of his family and causes Victor to hunt the monster for the rest of his life. Two of the points that
This is almost identical to why Jack wanted to kill Ralph. For example, when Ralph, Piggy, Sam, and Eric went to talk to Jack’s tribe Jack tried to kill Ralph by throwing a spear at him and succeeded in killing Piggy by sending a boulder tumbling down a hill. William Golding explains “Viciously, with full intension, he hurled his spear at Ralph. The point tore the skin and flesh over Ralph’s ribs, then sheared off and fell in the water.” (Golding 181) Jack tried to kill Ralph so he could remove him permanently to remain in complete power without fear of Ralph taking control
While Heracles was a shepherd he killed all the animals and monsters that tried to eat the sheep. Until one day he came back to the kingdom and the nearby king gave him his daughter to have as a wife, Hera didn’t like this at all and made Heracles think that his children and wife were monsters so Heracles killed them all. Awaking heracles became horrified and went to the oracle of Delph to atone to his crimes the oracle said “you must serve your cousin Eurystheus, king of Mycenae as a slave for ten years and perform ten labors for him.” Eurystheus liked this idea a lot because he was jealous of his strong cousin. The first labor was to kill a golden lion that no weapon could penetrate his mane, second one was two kill the poisonous hydra, third one was to kill a magical boar, fourth one was to get rid of deadly birds, the fifth one was to clean the stables of giant horses, sixth one was to get a belt from an amazon queen, seventh one was to get 4 deadly mares, eighth one was to catch fire breathing bull, ninth one was to get a sacred hide from artemis. For the 10 labor he was sent to get 5 red cows which he
In my opinion I think he was a heroic person, back at the chapter “Death in the Great Hall” He was disguised as a beggar and was able to string his own bow and shoot it thru the holes of the axes and revealed himself as Odysseus and killed all the suitors in his house and took back his land. Back when he was at the cyclopes island He blinded the cyclops and shouted his name and told the cyclops that he needs no one to help him. he is a powerful man, then, later on, he got cursed by most of the gods and he was to die, but that didn 't stop him. The reason I think he is a great hero is he survived 8 years without food and water and endured Going to the underworld and going to Charybdis and Scylla Only to get the whole crew to
Moreover, Helios messages the thunder god to kill those who ate his cattle. It was this decree that made Zeus throw a bolt at Odysseus’ men, killing them all. Odysseus’ prayer shields him from Zeus ' bolt. The cry to Zeus conveys that the hero needs help from the gods and is unable to do everything himself, thus showing Zeus he is learning. This shows progression because in the beginning of the journey Odysseus disregards the gods and gloats about the obstacles he excels, whereas on Helios Island, the hero calls for help knowing he can not surpass famine/every challenge.
Zeus Cronos was called the “Father of the gods”. Cronos’s children’s names were Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon. Cronos killed his father, Uranus, and when Uranus almost dead, he foretold Cronos future by saying the following to him, “You murder me now and steal my throne---but one of your own sons will dethrone you, for crime begets crime,” said Uranus in the book by Bernard Evslin. Because of this, Cronos was very cautious and so he swallowed all of his children after they were born. Cronos’ wife, Rhea, was very angry at him and decided to descend Olympia and have her baby in a dark place.
Odysseus did not want to go war because his son, Telemachus, was just born but he went anyways. Odysseus’s abyss occurred when he sees the prophecy and saw that his mom died and everyone was still grieving. In The Odyssey there were many initiations but the most significant one was, when Odysseus and his men find the cyclops and they are not able to escape. To enable the men to escape Odysseus gets the cyclops drunk, then stabs him in the eye, and then escapes riding on the bottom of the sheep. Finally his return was when Odysseus returns to Ithica he finds that other men are trying to take over his throne.
The titan grew sympathetic to mankind after creating it and stole fire from the gods to help them. Zeus had found out about this and deemed that Prometheus had given humanity too much power with the gift of fire. Zeus punished the titan by chaining him to a rock letting a bird eat his liver in the day only leaving him alone at night for the liver to regenerate the next day to repeat the cycle for all eternity. The easiest
