What makes a Hero?

Sr. Moses Allen came to our class this week to introduce us to the Hero of a Thousand Faces

What makes a Hero?  This is precisely the question we are attempting to answer. We've been reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and we've just begun digging into Joseph Campbell's Hero myth archetype. During his presentation, Sr. Moses showed the following video; watch it if you need a quick review of the acts heroes go through and ask yourself - does Percy follow the Hero Monomyth?
