Braving in snow, an elderly woman carries water bottles on her bicycle in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture, five days after an earthquake and a tsunami devastated northeastern coastal towns in Japan (2011).

A hero is a literary figure who is a person of virtue, and usually the protagonist of a story. They usually believe in honour and have strong morals. A well-known example of a hero would be Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars films.

It also means:

  • A person noted for special achievement in a particular field.
  • A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life. [1]
  • The name of a character in Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.
  • Hero of Alexandria, a first century Greek engineer/inventer
