Antigone is very brave and caring. When it comes to her family she will do anything for them, this is why she felt the need to bury her brother, Polyneices.
Why did you do this if you knew it was forbidden?
Antigone was very brave and cared for her family. "Will you help these hands take up Polyneices' corpse and bury it?" Page 255
Realization of flaw
Antigone was a hero to her brother, she got caught burying him. "Where could I gain greater glory than setting my own brother in his grave?" Page 273
I'm doing this with or without your help.
After she had been caught, King Creon came to talk to her. "Tell me briefly-not in some lengthy speech-were you aware there was a proclamation forbidding what you did?" "I'd heard of it. How could I not? It was public knowledge." Page 271

For her actions, she must be locked in this cave with limited food and water. She ended up hanging herself instead of dying a slow death. "Then leave her there alone, all by herself-she can sort out whether she wants suicide or remains alive, buried in a place like that" Page 288
Antigone realizes her fate before she falls because she knew what could happen if she was caught. " I'll do my duty to my brother-and yours as well, if you're not prepared to. I won't be caught betraying him. "I won't suffer anything as bad as a disgraceful death." Page 256-257
