In the epic poem, Beowulf, there are clear distinctions between an epic hero and a monster. Beowulf is the prime example of a epic hero possessing characteristics such as superior strength, courage, and loyalty. On the other hand, Grendel and Grendel’s mother are characteristized as evil and immoral based off of their actions. These characteristics are presented throughout the poem, and monsters are given grotesque, hideous appearances to further prove that they are evil. After Beowulf kills Grendel, Grendel’s mother reaction revealed how the full presentation of a character can allow readers to react differently than before and even sympathized with them.

Both creation myths also tell of the evil force being cast into an underworld where they continue to torment the living.

The Sirens are creatures usually seen as two or three figures standing on the rocky cliffs of Anthemoessa a flowery island in the Mediterranean Sea, using their voices to crash ships into the rocky cliffs surrounding the island, many greeks believe in the Sirens for the crashing of ships who have misjudged the waters.
The mechanical Hound in the novel Fahrenheit 451 symbolizes a reincarnation of Greek philosophers who are angry about the destruction of their stories. The Hound is almost like a Greek/Roman monster from mythology with it’s wicked, devilish features. This lethal dog has a four inch needle protruding from its snout that is there to inflict death upon its victims. It can smell the chemical balance of your body and track you anywhere on earth.

A single drop of infected blood or body fluid, transmitted through vomiting or bites, can change a person within seconds and the rage takes over. Thus, they are technically infected living but in a form of zombies. They have increased strength and endurance, loss of brain function and uncontrollable rage.
