"O Cyclops! Would you feast on my companions? Puny. am I, in a Caveman's hands?..."

In the end, Odysseus was able to get back to his ship without being harmed even though some of his men were eaten. He then gets cocky when he is leaving the island. Odysseus is a complex character because he ends up getting cocky and starts to smack talk the Cyclops.
