I am so small and I still beat you! I am the greatest!
Stop being arrogant, Lets Go!
The character of Odysseus in the beginning of the story is respectful and tells his men not to steal everything, but to wait for him to get back because he might give them something better than anything they could steal from him.
Odysseus takes action by deciding not to kill the cyclops and to just stab him in the eye.
In the end of the story Odysseus changes and shows his flaw of arrogance. After beating the cyclops and bragging twice, he decides to do it one more time and the cyclops casts a curse on him and his journey home.
