  1. Scroll down and read about Hector here:

    Make note of his actions that demonstrate areté:

    And here are some places to read up on Ajax:

    Once you've decided on which actions and/or situations there are for each character, you can make your decision. You'll also be able to go back into the text (use Sparknotes' summaries to guide you, if you wish) to find the exact lines and quotations.
