Storyboard Text

  • A Noble Birth
  • Son, always remember that bragging is not a hero's characteristic.
  • Your father is right, Beowulf!
  • Capable of deeds of great strength and courage
  • Great Warrior
  • Most epic heroes will have an above average station in life. They will be kings, princes, or nobles of some sorts. Beowulf was a prince and he later became a king. 
  • Travels Over a Vast Setting
  • The hero has the potential for great deeds. The levels of their deeds are beyond what the commoner does. Beowulf fought monsters and killed them, that's not for a commoner. He fought Grendel as giant till he shrank to death.
  • National Heroism
  • Oh, the great Beowulf!!
  • Before the hero does his business in the epic, he usually establishes himself in combat during a war. Beowulf had fought in wars, he even dragons, and other sea monsters before fighting Grendel.
  • One cannot be considered a hero if they stay in their village their whole life, the more countries or area traveled to, the better. Grendel is a perfect example; he went from his country, Denmark, to fight for the Danes.
  • Before a hero can be celebrated by countries around the world, he must first be recognized in his home country as a great and heroic person. Beowulf was known in his home country as a very strong and powerful man before he went to the Danish.
