Heroes choose to abide by their role and stick with it. They do not try to reconcile themselves with the rest of the world. Times of heroism are generally times of terror, but that day never shines in which this element may not work. The circumstances of man, we say, are historically somewhat better in this country, and at this hour, than perhaps ever before. One of the best examples that I can think of is when Beowulf fought Grendel and won.

Self esteem is not a short coming for him. Very often Odysseus makes poor decisions and gets him self into sticky situations because of this.

Though the journey is tough, it is not tougher than Odysseus. Odysseus has the defining character traits of a Homeric leader: strength, courage, loyalty, nobility, a thirst for glory, and confidence in his authority.

Unfortunately, because of the length of time that Odysseus is away from home, the situations that he must face causes his loyalty to weaken, as well as the strength of his various motivations.
Options, they’re something Molly has never had in her life. She's always been told what to do, and usually how to do it, resulting in little freedom for her. Now with Vivian she has that freedom, as the author so eloquently puts it, “It’s as if she’s been walking on a wire, trying to keep her balance, and now, for the first time, she is on solid ground” and that means the world to her,

Along with strength, one must have other distinguishing traits to be considered an epic hero.
