Heroes of the world unite according to Joseph Campbell in The Hero with the Thousand Faces our fictional heroes are already united stories like the chronicles of King Arthur, Hercules, and Luke Skywalker have at their center heroes who are realized in story worlds that are amazingly similar to each other and whose lives follow the same pattern of development they typically become separated from their parents when they are very young usually babies and are cast out into the wilderness to either fend for themselves, become adopted by wild animals or by people who live very close to nature at a very early age they are recognized as being special and at some point, usually in their late childhood or early adolescence they obtain a mentor who will monitor their progress and develop their special powers they will also usually have gained one or more sidekicks or helpers who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the hero (these helpers are sometimes comic characters or deformed in some way) the hero will also have acquired one or more special weapons at which he is especially skilled and which sometimes have special names (like Beowulf’s sword Hrunting, Arthur’s Excalibur or Skywalker’s light saber) sometime in late adolescence or early adulthood the hero will receive a call to adventure which often takes the form of a growing awareness of wrongs to be righted he will then set off on a journey or quest in search of a way to fulfill his destiny the wrongs he sets out to right are not just important to the hero personally they are wrongs that blight his whole world so in desiring to right those wrongs he takes the responsibility for his whole society upon his young shoulders the hero typically descends into the underworld (either literally or figuratively) where he encounters terrible demons that oftentimes represent elements of his own psyche if he is successful in defeating these demons he re-ascends to his own world and restores his society, his quest successfully completed this societal rejuvenation is usually marked ceremoniously and ritually by the hero’s marriage to a highborn lady by his official reconciliation with his father by his acceptance of some special prize or by his achievement of immortality
