In the book, Theodore Boone The Fugitive, the main character 's name is Theodore. Theodore is brave, smart, courageous, and funny. His main intention during the story is to put a murderer, Pete Duffy, behind bars. Some devices used by the author are metaphors, personifications, and similes. The other book, The House of Hades, has a main character named Percy. Percy is also brave, smart, and courageous, but he is also strong and caring.

Percy Jackson, the main character in The Lightning Thief ,is following the path of the hero in “Hero’s journey” On Percy’s life a teacher has become his mentor. In the Lightning Thief Percy says “But Mr.Brunner expected me to be as good as everybody else, despite the fact that I have dyslexia and attention deficit disorder and I had never made above a C- in my life” In this quote, percy expresses his feelings on how he is frustrated with himself and his teacher. In hero's journey a quote shows about mentors, “Heroes are almost started on their journey by a character who has mastered the laws of the outside world and come back to bestow this wisdom upon them.” That is how The Lightning Thief is compared to hero's journey.
How often are you persevere? In the book, The Lightning Thief, Percy Jackson shows marvelous acts of perseverance. Percy is a teenager, freshman, and attends Yancy Academy. He is diagnosed with dyslexia, ADHD, and ADD. Now, many people would feel bad for him, and think that he is very peaked. However, he is blessed to have these conditions. His ADHD and ADD help him stay hyperactive in wherever he is. This book was based on Greek Mythology, and there were many wars at that time. Percy is falsely accused for stealing a lightning bolt, and wants to prove that he didn't.
Percy’s experiences align with the Hero’s Journey because of these three reasons. First, separation happens to Percy for a while. I know this because in the book it says that he has ADHD and dyslexia so that is what makes him separated from the rest of society. Then, the call to adventure happens. I know this because there is a danger that starts them on their journey and the danger is the monsters that come for them. Finally, the entering the unknown happens. I know this because when he goes to camp half-blood there is the constant threat of danger. Also his strength and courage is tested time and time again. In conclusion, percy’s experiences align with the Hero’s
Percy begins to doubt that he is capable of being a hero during the fight between him, Echidna, and Chimera because he feels as if Riptide, his sword, will cause minimal damage, and in this situation he’s not only trying to protect himself. First of all, before going into the elevator his suspicions lowered once Grover reassured him that there were probably no monsters since the smell is similar to that of underground. Once Percy got into the elevator, leaving Annabeth and Grover behind, he didn’t exactly expect the “chihuahua” to be Chimera, or the fat lady to be Echidna. He was baffled and caught in surprise unlike most of the other times where he was with his friends and they could protect each other. No, in this situation it was all on him.
Percy Jackson’s experiences do align with the hero’s journey. First, his experiences align with the hero’s journey because he’s, so far, following all the steps in the hero’s journey. He follows all the steps because first he starts off in an ordinary world, which is the first step, then things start to turn supernatural and adventure is basically calling him. So, he goes to do what he needs to do even if he’s very confused, just like in the hero’s journey. Next, Percy, first lives in an ordinary world but then goes into a different world/place that he’s never been to before. Ever since he was born he lived in an ordinary world and most things were normal, but then he gets lead into a different world which is one of the first steps in the hero’s
Throughout “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan, the main character Percy Jackson grows in many ways. Through application of Joseph Campbell’s Hero Cycle, Percy’s development as a leader over the course of “The Lightning Thief” can be analyzed (Campbell). Percy is born into the hero’s cycle at his natural birth and his call to adventure is the attack by Mrs. Dodds. Percy crosses the threshold, when he leaves Montauk with his mother and Grover and the first trial testing his leadership is on the bus with the furies. Trials exemplifying Percy’s growth include: the furies, Medusa, the Saint Louis Arch, the “Waterland” Waterpark, the Lotus Hotel, Crusty’s Waterbed Palace, and Hades and the Underworld. Each test prepares Percy for the final battle, his encounter with Ares, where he displays the leadership qualities he has obtained over the course of the novel.

Rick Riordan 's novel, The Lightning Thief, can be effectively interpreted through Joseph Campbell 's Hero Cycle analytical tool. In utilizing this tool, the theme of Percy 's evolving leadership capabilities is brought to attention. In the preliminary events of the novel, Percy is clearly uncomfortable and uncertain of his newfound leadership position. But, as he and his friends, Annabeth and Grover, endure the trials that they encounter, Percy becomes increasingly a more effective and all around better leader. By applying the Hero Cycle, we can understand The Lightning Thief as a description of the evident evolution of Percy 's, leadership through the tests and challenges he endures.
