This is displayed in the literal mother-son relationships of Aphrodite and Aeneas, Thetis and Achilles, and the protective instinct that Athene displays in Book 3 of the Iliad when Pandarus arrow shot an arrow at Menelaus and she “took her stand in front and warded off the piercing dart, turning it just a little from the flesh, like a mother driving a fly away from her gently sleeping child” [p80].
- In book 23 of the Odyssey, reoccurring Homeric themes appear, character?s roles change, and a homecoming for an epic hero is finally accomplished.

- In the epic novel of The Odyssey by Homer, the protagonist, Odysseus, display s the best example of a folktale hero. He isn t the son of any God or any supernatural being, and also he does not posses any immortal qualities. A call to an adventurous journey is what later on turns him into a hero.
- This is directly connected to the voyage of Odysseus, in that they both lead to the same finale, and are both stepping stones towards wisdom, manhood, and scholarship.

- Odysseus is one of the first Greek mythic heroes famed for his brain as well as his brawn. He is a man with a curious mind, and he is also a man with unsettled valor and bravery.
