Furthermore, Victor is not able to physically compete with the creature and he fails to act in that moment when both the violent elements of the storm and the crippling rage he feels for his brother’s murderer affect him, making him the more human of the two - the more susceptible to emotion and weakness.

Finally, he periodically switches between anger and sadness as he meets the creature, learns of his wish, and when he discovers the creature murdered Elizabeth. Obviously, Victor is the hero because how could a creature who murders innocent people possibly be the
“ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried. “ I won’t write a word because I am innocent.”(Ha 472) Mr. Chiu still believes that his plead of innocence will help him win his freedom. He does not realize that he is not in a place of influence or power to sway their decision. His complaints have no impact on those in charge of him. “If he were able to, he would have razed the entire police station and eliminated all their families.”(Ha 476-477) Mr. Chiu has become a truly changed man.
Even for most soldiers they would be quite uncomfortable killing a human, but Elijah does not even think twice about what he has just done. He even tries to justify that his actions were right and it had to be done. Guilt is no longer a part of Elijah and it is seen when he feels no remorse for killing an innocent child. Elijah possessing no guilt adds on to his ineffective way of coping with his adversities. Elijah disregards human lives by treating humans as a motivation for his own satisfaction which results in mental instability.
After all his bad experiences with the Duke and King, he stills feels bad for them being tarred and feathered. “Humans beings can be awful cruel to one another.” (chapter 33) Yet through everything, he still cares about the Duke and King even though they caused so much trouble on the raft. Talking about it with Tom he figures that “a persons conscience ain't got no sense, and just goes for him anyway… it takes up more room than all the rest of a person's insides, and yet ain't no good, nohow. Tom Sawyer says the same.” (chapter 33) Huck doesn't find the point in a conscience, he thinks that the whole thing is pointless because he believes it leads you in the wrong direction. This helps him alter his thoughts and help Jim
On the outer shell, Grendel is a monstrous villain who hates mankind, but the reader soon realizes, in reality, he just wants to fit in. Since Grendel knows he will never fit in, he decides to destroy what he cannot have and he "[understands] that the world [is] nothing: [but] a mechanical chaos of casualties, brute enmity on which we stupidly impose our hopes and fears. I understood, finally and absolutely, I alone exist" (Gardner 22). Instead of criticizing the villain, Grendel makes the reader sympathize with him by saying " [he] alone exist[s]". Thus allowing the reader to interpret the tone better because of how Grendel expresses his feeling.

He uses concepts of mercy and leniency in a way opposing that of the Furies. He not only believes Orestes is innocent but also restates his disdain at the methods of the Furies multiple times, saying, “They disgust me. These grey, ancient children never touched by god, man or beast - the eternal virgins. Born for destruction only, the dark pit, they range the bowels of Earth, the world of death, loathed by men and the gods who hold Olympus (BLANK)”. He supposedly has extensive insight on, “The rules of justice (BLANK).” With that in mind, he seems to lean further away from justice into anarchy.
The saddest part of it all is that George, Harrison’s father doesn’t remember his son’s death because of the government transmitters that make him forget anything that makes him do too much thinking (Vonnegut 5,6). This shows how their society is being brainwashed into thinking that this is the way that everyone should be equal.
