Hero

A hero or a heroine if female, is a characteristic of someone's work, in which they have been facing various dangers, bravery and strength, in order to make a heroic-deed or to defeat the evil.

History

(Ancient Greek: ἥρως, hḗrōs), in Greek mythology and folklore, was originally a demigod, their cult being one of the most distinctive features of ancient Greek religion. Later, hero (male) and heroine (female) came to refer to characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for helping others in trouble – that is, heroism – for some greater good, originally of martial courage or excellence but extended to more general moral excellence
