Read the passage from The Iliad When Hector heard this he was glad, and went about among the Trojan ranks holding his spear by the middle to keep them back, and they all sat down at his bidding... Based on the passage, which description best characterizes Hector? O He is a supernatural force because he is powerful O He is an archetype because he is vital to the plot O He is a ruthless villain because he is aggressive. O He is an epic hero because he is a brave leader.

Based on this passage, I believe that the description which best characterizes Hector is the last option - he is an epic hero because he is a brave leader. You can see in the excerpt that once he started walking around his men, they all stopped talking and calmed down, as if they admired him a lot, which was the truth. He was a good leader and his men loved him, and were devastated when he was killed in the end.

He is an epic hero because he is a brave leader. I would say that this is the most likely description of Hector because he had the courage to go amongst the Trojans and quell their unrest by a motion with his spear and get their attention.
