The hero, after following a tortuous path of struggles, dreams and hopes, always manages to fulfill his heart’s desire, while sometimes discovering it at the same time.
These stories stay in the collective consciousness for generations because everyone can recognize him or herself in the hero’s quest and identify with the struggles and the longing for a happy ending.
The tales often follow the same themes: at their core is a lonely character searching for their way home or on a quest for true love.
