According to the English Oxford Dictionary, a hero is defined as “a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, and noble qualities”, and Bilbo displays these things throughout the entirety of the novel. One example of his courage is seen from the start of the journey. Bilbo Baggins, a clean conserved hobbit from the Shire, has no desire for adventure or for change. He prefers to stick to his quiet hole, away from the chaos and dangers of the world. Therefore, Bilbo leaving to join the dwarves and Gandalf on their adventure takes a lot of bravery.
However this condition does not affect their general intelligence.

After the battle, all peace between the different parties is restored and Bilbo and Gandalf return to Bag End, where Bilbo continues to live today.

Bilbo’s long and perilous journey with the dwarves’ taught him that he does not have to live a life that is considered “respectable” by his neighbors. Bilbo could have adventures and make a difference while still being himself. “Bilbo was no longer quite respectable… He was held by the hobbits of the neighborhood to be ‘queer.’ I am sorry to say, he did not mind.”(304) Bilbo expresses that he was not concerned about what the other hobbits thought of him. He was quite content with the life he had lived. The adventure Bilbo had been a part of opened his eyes and showed him that there is more to life than just tea and biscuits.
I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills. Chris McCandless was very courageous for ditching all his possessions to take a trip in the wilderness. “Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
They are unable to move, and both must wait for their own men to arrive and rescue him. The storm is a main conflict in this story, causing the two enemies to be trapped, and the climax is directly caused by the implications set by the fallen beech tree. But since there is no resolution or development of this conflict, it couldn't be the reason for the overall resolution. The other conflict, between Ulrich and Georg, is overwhelmingly evident in "The Interlopers" because the tension created by the threats of the men to kill each other when their own men come to rescue him. Ulrich does not want to be killed by Georg, makes the decision to ask Georg to be friends.
No character in Twain’s Huckleberry Finn is flawless, but Jim clearly shines through as a hero throughout the novel because of his kindness, nobility, and loyalty. Initially just seen as a fool and used as a source for humor, Jim’s character depth develops throughout the book, and his humanity and goodness frequently dominates the story. Through his friendship with Huck we can see his heroic nature, even in small and seemingly insignificant moments. One example of this occurs when Huck describes the shifts that he and Jim would take at night to keep watch: “I went to sleep, and Jim didn’t call me when it was my turn. He often done that” (Twain 225).
Even though Hans is going through a rough time in his life, he still manages to find a way to put Liesel in front of himself and make her happy. Hans also shows off his courteous personality on page 140 when he risks a great deal to help someone in need. “Not great quality, but hopefully good
On one side Jack has let his violent side show. At point in the novel the rescue fire went out and the boys were not able to signal a passing ship. The fire went out because of Jack and his hunters hunting instead of watching the fire. Thus proving he had become more concerned with killing pigs than being rescued. Later in the novel Jack was having difficulties killing pigs because the pigs could see him coming.
