In the first couple years after the war Louie was set on murdering the man who ruined him. A few years later, Louie was filled with forgiveness, “Thoughts of murder no longer had a home in him” (Hillenbrand). This thought that Louie had is an excellent sign that he is a changed man and that he is beginning to forgive what happened.

He claims that Beowulf has lost the swimming competition between him and Breca. This affects Beowulf because his reputation is vital to him.
