Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 HEROIC CODE The Heroic Code is the outline that all Homeric heroes follow in classical Greek literature. Being a hero meant being a man of honour who would do anything to protect his reputation. A hero would win glory and immortality on the battlefield and be strong beyond reason but would always retain his dignity to be widely remembered. Homeric heroes recognise that the gods are more powerful than them and thus appear modest and humble before the gods. They also sometimes receive supernatural help from the gods in their endeavours. Contemporary heroes are different from Homeric heroes because the latter's ultimate goal is to achieve eternal glory while the former's is less self-orientated and focused more on helping others and assisting them in order to improve their situation. Modern heroes can also be male or female unlike Homeric heroes and often do hot receive assistance from supernatural figures. Homeric heroes are never controlled by anyone - even if they fight for a certain leader they are never controlled by them. Heroes are often bitter towards leaders as they always require them to fight their battles and never fight them themselves. Women - although never heroes in Homer's works - often play a part in the stories of Homeric heroes. Victorious heroes often take women from wars as trophies to signify their victory and make decisions that are heavily influenced by their love for a woman. "Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone?" "Imagine a king who fights his own battles" "Let Achilles fight for honour, let Agamemnon fight for power and let the gods decide who to glorify" "Honour the gods, love your woman and defend your country" "Achilles fights only for himself" "You want your name to last through the ages" "Achilles? He can't be controlled" "He fought for honour"
