Consequently, they vocalized their opinions to Creon; making him short-tempered and depressed. He soon gave into peer pressure along with anger and introduced an alternative punishment for the two sisters. Creon said, “Oh, it is hard to give in! But it is worse to risk everything for stubborn pride.” Though he tried to make a change, in the end he was still unhappy because his wife and son died. Ismene would not be punished since she did not commit the crime and Antigone received banishment to a small cell as an alternative to death.

When he is being assaulted by the Bacchants Pentheus cries out to his mother “Have pity on me, mother! Don’t kill me for my wrongdoing” .

Eventually, Agamemnon ended up deciding that he would sacrifice his daughter, rather than give up his whole army and victory and keep his daughter. When the Chorus speaks of Agamemnon, they illustrate in the reader's mind a moral character who was caught in a moral dilemma: He had to choose whether or not he was going to kill his daughter for the good of his state.

A monster to myself, to the whole world, and to all future time, a monster, Wearing my daughter's
Sethe and her daughter are isolated from the community due to Sethe’s killing of her youngest child, an action Sethe justifies as “put[ting] my babies where they’d be safe” but one which Paul D sees as a love “too thick” (Morrison 193). Her misjudgment fits Aristotle’s description of the fatal flaw. The trauma she experienced as a slave made her justifiably determined to not let her children return to slavery, but her panicked actions resulted in her isolation the community.

However, Kant’s Deontological Theory offers the most well-founded analysis because it absolutely precludes necessity as a reason for murder and cannibalism. From the perspective of Mill’s Utilitarianism, Dudley and Stephens’ act of killing and eating the boy is morally right. Utilitarians would infer that their cannibalistic act produces greater happiness and lesser pain for the three men who fed upon the boy’s body. On the other hand, had the boy not been killed and eaten, all four on ship would likely have died. One can also reasonably assume that the three men, unlike the boy, have wives and children at home.
