Heroes have distinct traits that separate them from bystanders and villains who the reader also meets throughout the story. Despite differences amongst the plethora of stories from this genre, a common denominator exists within every character that an author portrays as a hero. J.R.R.

Now, in this booming age of technology, we've turned to heroes such as Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione. Not only strong, courageous, and honorable, but also being the very mightiest of all warriors on the earth, Beowulf truly displays the ideas and virtues of his age.

Stories were principally used to carry on heroes’ legends for generations to come. In modern times, stories are written for the pleasure of millions of readers, for informative purposes, and everything else in between.
