The Wood-elves and Lake-men then laid siege to the Mountain and requested payment for their aid, recompense for Lake-town's destruction, and settlement of old claims on the treasure. Thorin refuses and, having summoned his kin from the mountains of the North, reinforces his position. Bilbo tries to ransom the Arkenstone to avoid a war between all of them, but Thorin is stubborn. He banishes Bilbo, and battle seems unavoidable. Gandalf then reappears to warn them all of an approaching army of goblins and Wargs.
That is what Bilbo says when he picks up the Arkenstone that he finds on top of the pile of treasure. In the beginning of the novel many, if not all, disagrees that Bilbo is suited to be in the position of a burglar. Bilbo feels that way, too. He felt that he is unworthy and unsuited to fit the position. But now as he holds up the Arkenstone he is able to prove to himself that truly he has become a burglar.
He returns to fight Scar and the Hyenas with his friends Nala, Timon, and Pumbaa. From this an intense battle happens between Scar and Simba. Simba overcomes Scar and becomes the leader of Pride Rock and restores it back to dominance. Sundiata follows almost the same story line as this. When Sundiata's father dies he is supposed to be the next king, but Dankaran does not allow this to happen.
He didn’t fail any of his battles but dies in his last battle and the dragon as well. “Hail King Beowulf!” Beowulf was a Geat warrior who faced Evil monsters. In his first battle, he is the good because he fought the evil he sailed to Hrothgar’s kingdom to fight the monster. The battle with the evil mind of Grendel’s mother who seeked revenge for her son. It was Good vs.
Hrothgar commanded for weapons to be dropped before seeing him but Beowulf said as long as some had weapons with them. They greeted Hrothgar, and Beowulf’s people said. “That my duty was to go to the Danes great king. (Raffel, 25) Beowulf described his bloody journeys and asked for a request to battle the undefeated. God decided who will be given the death.
On the other hand, Dori was the only one who tried to save me and stayed with me, until I was safe away from those Wargs, and he nearly got killed by the Wargs saving me. So, I suppose he isn't as malevolent as the others… especially Thorin! I think, if we ever get to the treasure, he might keep it all for himself! The Dwarves might be mean to me, but I can't just leave them here to be killed by those giant spiders when I can save them! How I wish I stayed in my safe, cosy hobbit-hole, instead of letting Gandalf persuading me to leave it.
His retirement, however does not spell the end of his career. Instead, like any great leader he has taken on a new challenge with a position on the Board of Directors of Invacare Corporation. The organization welcomed him and his skills with open arms as the compnay is aiming to further its hold on the international market. The company is eager to have General Jones on board because they realize that he has tremendous experience in both domestic and international strategy. His willingness to take on a new and challenging venture even after retirement proves that he is a natural born leader who is gifted at both teaching and motivating.
They also encounter unspeakable evil including Sauron the creator of the Ring, the Nazgul or Dark Riders of Mordor, Gandalf's nemesis The Balrog, the evil wizard Saruman the White. Through it all the friendship between these four Hobbits never waivers it only gets stronger as the journey goes on. Fate caused Frodo to inherit the Ring and it became his destiny to destroy it, but he undertook the task by choice to save the Shire and the Hobbits he cared about. It was his choice alone and while Sam felt responsible for Frodo as did his cousins Merry and Pippin it was their choice to accompany Frodo. While friendship may not have been the original reason Frodo left the Shire with these three it was definitely friendship and a strong sense of camaraderie that kept them together even after the journey became treacherous.
One main similarity between the movie and the story (and probably the most important) is the element of an epic hero whom dies after saving his people. In the movie, Bulvine is cut with a poisonous claw by Grendel’s mom, shortly before decapitating her. He is able to fight one more battle against Grendel’s tribe, and then dies after winning the combat from the venom. In the poem, translated by Seamus Heaney, Beowulf dies after slaying a dragon from a lethal, dragon-bite to the neck. Even though the movie is based on the story of Beowulf, The Thirteenth Warrior still leaves a few events out and adds some occurrences.
Beowulf did not face all the monsters alone, for he had men who followed him and helped him face most of the monsters. Beowulf had one last monster to defeat and it demanded the assistance of his men due to his older age. Beowulf and his men went to confront a vehement dragon who needed to perish. “No help or backing was to be had then from his high-born comrades; that hand-picked troop broke ranks and ran for their lives...”(746-749) Beowulf’s men betrayed him and left him to fend for him self, just as Christ’s disciples abandoned him. Only one Beowulf’s men stayed which was Wigalf.
