This storyboard does not have a description.
"Beowulf spoke: in spite of his wounds,Mortal wounds, he still spoke For he well knew his days in the world Had been lived out to the end: his allotted time Was drawing to a close, death was very near." (Lines 2724-2728)
This is Phase 9: Freedom to Live, because Beowulf has completed his journey after defeating the dragon, but he ends up dying soon after the battle.
"The tail-turners, ten of them together. When he needed them the most, they had made off. Now they were ashamed and came behind shields, In their battle-outfits, to where the old man lay." (Lines 2848-2852)
This is Part 2: Refusal of the Call, because when Beowulf really needed the Geat warriors, they let him down and made off.
"His royal pyre Will melt no small amount of gold: Heaped there in the hoard, it was bought at heavy cost, And that pile of rings he paid for at the end With his own life will go up in flames " (Lines 3010-3015)
I say that this part of the Hero's Journey is Part 9 again, because Beowulf has completed his journey and defeated anyone or anything that stood in his path.
