28. Exposure: False hero is exposed

Description

Symbol: Ex

By their actions in the final duel, competition or task versus the hero, the false hero is at last seen to be what they are. They often expose themselves through the display of non-heroic actions, including cowardice, cheating and other false actions.

Example

In Star Wars, Han Solo returns.

Discussion

Exposure of the false hero is a dualist partner with recognition of the hero: as one is known, then by default so also is the others. In contrast with the heroic nature of the true hero, the false hero is exposed as deceitful and deserving of scorn and worse.

In combination with recognition of the hero, exposure of the false hero gives a 'double whammy' punch, creating a contrast that highlights further the value and achievement of the hero.
