Because hero is another word for protagonist.

I can understand the need to treat “hero” as synonymous with “protagonist”, since that’s how the culture often understands it. In which case all people/individuals are the protagonists of their lives – and their ‘hero journey’ is that of their type. I suppose I would be fighting a losing battle to try to redefine such a general word.

To use a word already in the profile, The Myth of the Savior …may meet the existing criteria?

It’s not too religious, it’s also not too cumbersome (i find The Myth of the Chosen One) a bit long and also unspecific — if we’re going for specificity over generality. It’s essentially a synonym for Messiah without the religious undertones, and still carries the Je/agency aspects without any Pe elements. What do you guys think?
