The final part of this ultimate test was to slay Badrang. After seeing Badrang escape, Martin chased after him and engaged in combat.

The marriage and the move were a huge threat to Caleb, for he would forever lose his soulmate. The idea was that Caleb could get Harvey interested once again in the love they shared in solving the case of the Zodiac killer, and would get Harvey to live up to their boyhood dreams by keeping the secret of the murder of the boy, and killing the girl that stood in the way of him and Harvey being a team again. Caleb went to great lengths to ensure Harvey’s loyalty. Harvey was not involved in these killings, but he was the brain child in the murder of the boy. They had cracked the case, it was a victory for the team and a real bummer for the bride to be who was at the scene of arrest when all the secrets came out.
Braveheart vs. Gladiator Both Braveheart and Gladiator are highly acclaimed movies with complex themes and motifs. Braveheart is the story of a Scottish man, William Wallace, who seeks to rid his homeland of English rule after his wife is murdered by English soldiers. Gladiator is the story of a Roman general named Maximus who escapes his execution and using an alias, rises in ranks to become a great gladiator in order to seek revenge against Commodus, a corrupt prince who murdered Maximus’s family. Both movies share the common themes of love, revenge, and freedom but present them in different ways. One of the greatest overriding themes in both movies is the concept of love.
At first glance Grendel’s moms actions seem very monster-like, but looking back into Beowulf it is clear that this is not the case. On page 71 when a party is being held for Beowulf’s victory over Grendel, Beowulf must provide wergild for the man in which Beowulf let die in the fight. “And compensation, / a price in gold, was settled for the Geat / Grendel had cruelly killed earlier” (1052-1054). The art of wergild in Beowulf is heroic code for compensation reguarding the life of someone else. The bereaved party is awarded either a person or money and treasure in agreement that no vengeance will be taken.
In order to attain justice in the racist town, two very determined F.B.I agents, Ward and Anderson adapt the harsh tactics and extreme actions of the KKK. The ends do justify the means.

Peeta is also picked in the reaping. He is fighting for his life and his love for Katniss. Haymitch is another main character who trains Katness and Peeta to be prepared for the games.

The King announced “...For brave Macbeth…well he deserves that name…his brandished steel smoked with bloody execution.” This metaphor hints that Macbeth is a brave, heroic, merciless fighter; it also tells us that he has gained a good reputation, as he is receiving praise from the King. This ‘fame’ along with Lady Macbeth’s encouragement, brewed some cunning evil plans in his head. He wanted to kill King Duncan and frame the chamber guards for his murder, and ultimately, the kings very own sons, Malcolm and Donalbain. He did this so he could become even more powerful, and gain the title ‘King Macbeth.’ After Macbeth ‘takes the plunge’ and murders King Duncan, he is in a deep state of shock. He says “why do I yield to that suggestion, whose horrid image doth unfix my hair, and make my seated heart knock at my ribs.” He is revolted by his actions, and still can’t believe what he has done.
Rooster Cogburn is the main character. He is a drunk. His appearance is rugged and dirty. He takes on the journey because he wants to help Mattie find the guy who killed her dad, but also to capture Ned Pepper. I admire Rooster’s determination and willingness to help Mattie.
