This is a man who is totally alone in the world save his daughter who according to reports looks remarkably like his wife Ismira whom he lost over the falls in the Spine mountains. So like many people he clung to what he had left with a vengeance. He became possessive and erratic. Refusing to acknowledge the Spine as evidenced by his interaction with Eragon, where Eragon tried to sell Saphira’s egg. Looking at it that way you could think of his actions as being possibly overprotective and scared of what could happen if Katarina went into the Spine.

Over fifty years go by and he still stands out to protect the people of the land by going alone to fight a dragon that attacks with the aid of his friend Wiglaf who also displays loyalty even when the flames were causing a deterrence. They both reflect the theme loyalty even when there was a lack of defense. This is asserted by the quote, “flames lapped the shield, charred it to the boss, and the body armor on the young warrior was useless to him” (2672-2674). Wiglaf demonstrates loyalty by not abandoning his friend in a war when others flee and try to save their lives. He asserts his loyalty by saying “I would rather my body were robbed in the same burning blaze as my gold-giver’s body than go back home bearing arms” (2651-2653).
In Top Gun, Goose, Maverick’s best friend, dies when their plane gets stuck in a jet wash and goes out of control. Maverick is very harsh on himself after his best friend's death, and gets very agitated the next time he is forced to fly. The death of Goose leaves Maverick with what seems to be post traumatic stress disorder, and therefore, on another occasion, when he gets caught in a jet wash, he disengages, and almost leaves a fellow fighter pilot in danger, although he ultimately regains control of his plane. The death of Maverick’s friend Goose has a profound impact on his later

This means that you drive yourself up until you lose flying speed, and then, just as you feel yourself beginning to tumble- why, you sit down” (White, 162) Arthur learns body capability as an owl because he learns how to fly.

But this wont stop the clever trickster, for he knows that if he plays with the sun day after day, the chief will eventually not be so careful. He has to repeat this many more days until he finally escapes one day when the chief forgets to close the smoke hole.
In the Burmese culture, Orwell’s sense of morality conflicts with Burmese morals. After the elephant tramples a man, the Burmese flock to Orwell because he has a rifle. When the Burmese crowd badgers Orwell to shoot the elephant, he “[does] not want to shoot the elephant” (Orwell, 2014, p. 230). At this moment, Orwell’s conscience nags him against shooting the elephant, but he “was only an absurd puppet pushed to and fro by the will of those yellow faces behind” (Orwell, 2014, p. 230). The Burmese crowd urges Orwell to act against his will and shoot the elephant, despite his desire for

Love is shown when Rick demanded that Ilsa leaves Casablanca with Victor and not stay with him like she wanted. Realizing that the adoration Victor had for Ilsa, in a great act of selflessness Rick facilitates the escape for the love of his life with another man. Loyalty is also displayed when the French officer, Captain Louis Renault, did not arrest Rick, although he witnessed Rick killing a German officer. Instead, he instructes his subordinates to “round up the usual suspects.” My most memorable moment is of the film is of Rick and Captain Louis walking down the airplane runway, darkness around them and fog swirling around their feet, plotting to leave Morocco for America.
