She is captured by the tyrannical leader of the Empire, Darth Vador, but before she is taken prisoner, hides the plans in a droid. The droid informs Luke Skywalker, a simple farmboy, of her need for help and he seeks advice from Ben Kanobi, a former Jedi knight. Ben takes Luke under his instruction in the ways of the Jedi and they all then attempt to rescue Princess Lea from the Empire and use the plans to destroy the Death Star.1 The trilogy sees no moment of resolution until the last episode yet the most heroic moment occurs when Ben Kanobi allows himself to be killed by the Darth Vador. By doing this, Kanobi solidifies Luke Skywalker's position as the hero capable of defeating the Empire. Perviously, Luke was unaware of his being destined to fight for the rebel cause.
They both successfully accomplished a series of tasks on the quests they were sent on. They also share the similar relationships with the gods. Both Jason and Herakles have had threatening childhoods. Pelius, the king of Jolcus, is told by an oracle, “beware of the one-sandaled man” (ACM 25). As a result of this, Pelius kills numerous amounts of his young male relatives in order to prevent what the oracle said from being reality.
Summary of Slaughterhouse Five Chaplain's Assistant Billy Pilgrim is a disoriented, fatalistic, and ill-trained American soldier. He does not like wars and he is captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge and taken to a prison in Dresden. The Germans put Billy and his fellow prisoners in a disused slaughterhouse (although there are animal carcasses hanging in the underground shelter). Their building is known as "Slaughterhouse number 5". The POWs and German guards alike hide in a deep cellar; because of their safe hiding place, they are some of the few survivors of the city-destroying firestorm during the Bombing of Dresden in World War II.
These claims are founded from the passage in which Kay and Wart arrive home after rescuing captives from Morgan, a suspected fairy queen (102). Before they return, Morgan’s griffin attacks the boys and is then killed by Kay's arrow to its eye (113). Although dead, the momentum of the griffin’s body continues onto Wart until there is “a cruel weight on top of him”, leaving him with a broken collarbone (113). The next day the boys and the recovered prisoners come home (115). Kay's reaction to their reception provides me with insight into young boy's character.
When Perseus reaches the Gorgons' lair, he's about to embark on the most dangerous part of his adventure. Perseus finds Medusa sleeping and chops off her head. The other two Gorgons chase him, but Perseus escapes with the help of Hades' helmet of invisibility. Perseus has got Medusa's head, which is certainly a kind of reward. While flying home to Seriphus, though, he also wins Princess Andromeda's hand in marriage.
The final part of this ultimate test was to slay Badrang. After seeing Badrang escape, Martin chased after him and engaged in combat. After a few sword strokes, Martin heroically defeated Badrang and ended his rule once and for all by slaying him. Martin the Mouse, despite only being a young warrior, shows many signs of being a hero. He has many important qualities drilled into him during his strange birth and childhood, he demonstrates his great ability in his many trails during his quest, and he completed his revenge against his former master by slaying him and destroying his castle.
His first battle took place with Grendel, an evil swamp-like demon who is terrorizing the town’s people inside King Hrothgar’s Mead Hall. The second battle involves Grendal’s mother who is seeking revenge at Beowulf for executing her son in the first battle. The last fight includes The Dragon, who is seeking revenge at the town’s people for a theft that took place inside the treasure hideout that The Dragon guards. There are obvious differences throughout the epic poem, for example, the fact that each battle is with a different beast. However, there are also similarities between these 3 fights.
The boys struggle to come to terms with the reality of being trapped on the island without any grownups and therefore expect the usual punishments that were expelled upon them during their lives prior to the crash. Another sign of morality was shown when Jack struggles to kill his first pig “ . . . because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh .
He discovers this due to his horrific experiences in World War 2 showing the darker side of human nature. Golding uses several language devices to help create an impression of Simon including alliteration which is used quite frequently. It is used to emphasise when Simon faints at the very start of the book, “the one of the boys flopped on his face,” because Golding is trying to highlight that Simon will later be a more important character but for now he is just “the fallen boy.” This shows that he is not popular and isn’t cared for as he is not referred to by his proper name. Short sentences are used to emphasise that Jack has no sympathy, “All right then. Sit down.
