A hero (masculine or gender-neutral) or heroine (feminine) (Ancient Greek: ἥρως, hḗrōs) is a person or main character of a literary work who, in the face of danger, combats adversity through impressive feats of ingenuity, bravery or strength, often sacrificing his or her own personal concerns for some greater good.
The concept of the hero was first founded in classical literature. It is the main or revered character in heroic epic poetry celebrated through ancient legends of a people; often striving for military conquest and living by a continually flawed personal honor code. The definition of a hero has changed throughout time, and the Merriam Webster dictionary defines a hero as "a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities". Examples of heroes range from mythological figures, such as Gilgamesh, Achilles and Iphigenia, to historical figures, such as Joan of Arc and Gandhi, to modern societal heroes like Rosa Parks.
The word hero comes from the Greek ἥρως (hērōs), "hero, warrior", particularly one such as Heracles with divine ancestry or later given divine honors. (literally "protector" or "defender") Before the decipherment of Linear B the original form of the word was assumed to be *ἥρωϝ-, hērōw-; R. S. P. Beekes has proposed a Pre-Greek origin.

One of the benefits of the market research is that it provides a window into an industry which is otherwise little understood from the outside, providing insight into common uses for offshore companies and countries where using offshore companies is most popular. It also enables trends to be observed across different jurisdictions and time periods. Recent reports reflect the reduction in the amount of offshore structuring which is tax driven (down to 15.9% in 2012, and 10.3% in 2013), possibly a result in the increase in offshore jurisdictions signing large numbers of tax information exchange agreements. They also appear to demonstrate the changes in popularity of certain offshore jurisdictions pursuant to different regulatory developments, and geopolitical events like the Cyprus financial crisis and the data leaks scandal.
