Transcript of Hero's Journey: The Lightning Thief

Created by:
The Hero's Journey
The Ordinary World
This is when the Hero is living their so-
called "normal life". They are often
happy where they are and are usually out
of place. This is the beginning of their journey, because as they move on, they will be called on an adventure.
Percy's Ordinary World
Call to Adventure
Generally an event happens and the Hero is brought a Journey he/she must complete. It may not be a flat out request for them to do something, but it may be that an event happens and they feel the need to go save someone or something.
Percy's Call to Adventure
The Road of Trials
Percy's Tests
Allies and helpers
The Hero needs a helper or two. Without a helper, the hero would fail miserably on his quest. For example, in the myth of Theseus, Adriadne helps Theseus find his way through the Labryinth. Without her help Theseus would have been lost forever.
Percy Helpers
The Supreme Ordeal
This is when the Hero is at the climax of their Journey. When they embarked on the quest, they had this one goal in mind, and now they are here: The Supreme Ordeal. Not only is the most difficult challenge they have ever faced, but they also need to use skills they have learned to even get out alive.

The Magic Flight
Percy's Flight
Now that the hero has gotten their reward, they have to get back to where they came from. Often, an enemy will be stopping them from leaving, and they must defeat that obstacle. To do this, they must combine all of their new found knowledge from the quest to defeat them, and afterward they can head for home.
Confronting the Father
In this step the person must confront whatever holds the ultimate ower in his or her life. In many myths and stories this is the father, or a father figure who has life and death power.
