Throughout the journey, they have not formally addressed Odysseus as his official title and in doing so, they show respect and admiration to Odysseus who pulled off yet another feat. Although Odysseus had made rash decisions that brought a fate of suffering upon these men, they praise him, suggesting that they have forgiven him―a sign of trust. Later when the men compare Odysseus to their return to Ithaca, they express their deep devotion for him. Odysseus is the famous face of Ithaca, their king, the closest thing they have of home. The thrill the crew feel when they see Odysseus is of renewed hope of sailing home.

He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut. The fact that Louie is throwing himself into being the leader of the tough situation and using his mental skill to comprehend ideas which could lead to a different fate shows how skillful he really is. As can also be seen in the text: "He snatched the cord, reeled the raft to him, and climbed aboard. He rowed to Phil and Mac" (Hillenbrand 4, 5).

The villagers then named the drowned man “Esteban” who now became the center of the villagers’ lives, especially for the women. This is primarily because of Esteban’s physical features and his pure heart. With this, there is a transformation in the behavior of the villagers that was observed.
“Not that Pilate or Reba felt the possessive love for him that his mother did, but they had accepted him without questions and with all the ease in the world. They took him seriously too. Askes him questions and thought all his responses to things were important enough to laugh at or quarrel with him about” (XX).

With that tantrum I remember saying "this is really stupid why would anybody even want to fish, you don't catch anything. I was also saying let leave this is pointless and I never want to fish again I don't even catch anything." But unfortunately we had to stay there for the rest of the day and that felt like the longest day of my little kid life.

The men, although brave, did not have a brain to match. I needed someone who could keep up with me and have intelligent conversations, someone worthy of being immortal like I.

I hoped they would be clever enough to avoid my enchantment and be a worthy companion, but alas my hopes were extinguished.
Although he never took his car out of his garage, or at least it isn’t mentioned he does, the fact that he has sold his car is almost leaving behind the fast living he’s grown so accustomed to.
