Frodo goes through the separation, transformation, and return that a hero must go through. He also displays the thirteen traits of a hero. During his quest to return the ring to Mount Doom, he learns many aspects of life. He endures pain, death of a loved one, and occasional happiness. Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring fits the three parts of a hero's journey and thirteen traits of a hero.First, the separation for Frodo from his normal life occurs after he receives the ring and while enduring his separation he displays a few traits of a hero.
