The main character in a story, who drives the plot, or around whom plot is structured. Often, but not always the protagonist .
A mortal divinized after stasis, to whom sacrifices and honours are paid. In Hesiodos the heroes are an intermediate generation between gods and mortals (demi-god).
The protagonist of the monomyth described by Campbell and Leeming. Such characters tend to be both round and dynamic. According to Frazer, the hero's forerunners were the shaman and the divine king, figures who had direct access to extraordinary spiritual energies. Through psychological identification with these figures, a community could vicariously gain access to spiritual energies. As this suggests, heroes are those with whom we tend to identify ourselves; they are our proxies. The hero's quest for individuation symbolizes the journey we must all make.
