The Covenant Video Clip Gone in 60 Seconds Video Clip Hero Hero must suffer more than he deserves. must be doomed from the start, but bear no responsibility for possessing his flaw. Hero must be noble in nature, but imperfect so that the audience can see themselves in

him. Hero must have discovered his fate by his own actions, not by things happening to him. Hero must see and understand his doom, as well as the fact that his fate was discovered by his own actions. Hero's story should arouse fear and empathy. Hero must be physically or spiritually wounded by his experiences, often resulting in his death.

Ideally, the hero should be a king or leader of men, so that his people experience his fall with him.

Anakin Skywalker --Star Wars He was a hero of the Republic, got the girl, helped win the war, and saved his Master a number of times. His fatal flaw was the fear of losing those he cared about, which fed a hunger for power to prevent it from ever

happening Eventually turned him into the everpopular Black Knight Darth Vader.
