Cabeza de Vaca was able to survive seeing that he knew a bit about the Indian tribes and how to speak their language(s), He also knew how to heal wounds and other such things, and most of all he knew how to survive in the wilderness. In the first place, Cabeza knew about the Indian tribes near his location, he knew about their culture and language. Over time he was able to learn more about the Indians, and showed great respect towards them. Cabezas respect to the Indians earned him their trust they also became allies because of it. “Cabeza learned four Indian languages, including Charrucos, plus sign language” (Document B).
Because Cabeza respected the Indians, they grew trust in him so they helped the Spanish soldier to survive. Cabeza de Vaca survived because of his success as a healer, his wilderness skills, and his respect for the Indians. As a soldier, Cabeza knew the main skills of survival. As a healer, he became a friend of the Indians. In my opinion, survival in the wilderness for two years is quite the accomplishment.
Some think Odysseus is a hero for many reasons, mainly because he helps many people including his family and his crew. Even when terrible things happen to him and his crew he perseveres and continues on his journey home.

He would go back home. I admire him for his courage and noble ideas, because he was confident. He wasn’t timid, he talk to every individual he had met. He wasn’t a bad guy. He made mistakes but that’s what makes us human like I said
Along with being sympathetic to old Mrs. Dubose, Atticus has supported many people through rough times. Despite race, class, gender, etc., He has a strong reputation for being there in anyone’s time of need. An example of this is helping out the Cunninghams. Penniless but proud, the Cunninghams can hardly afford food, but Atticus was there for them when they needed him the most, and in turn they, being farmers, paid Atticus back in the food that they grew and wood that they chopped. About anyone else would have turned the Cunninghams away, but Atticus knew that helping them was the more honorable approach.
He aided his king, never caused danger to other, and bravely fought. He never doubted his calling to defeat Grendel because he believed it was in the hands of God. An epic hero is someone who leaves a mark on earth for what good they did, and Beowulf surpassed the normal typical hero.

He loved and looked after his country and had stopped at nothing to make sure that Rome was in the best state. In addition to his love of the country, he also had a love for the people. Brutus had given compassion to others, even going so far as to offer his life to please the people of Rome. He also had a firm sense of loyalty, even though his loyalty lied most to Rome. Even though Brutus had much internal conflict, I truly believe that Brutus is an honorable man.
