What is a hero

One of the things I love about my son's school is that they have the most interesting writing prompts. This one was about the Iliad. Who was the hero between Achilles and Hector? I find this sort of question very thought provoking.

I know what I would say....but what do you think? What defines a hero for you? Which would you describe as truly heroic?
