... words "Ha ha, it was me, Odysseus the mortal, that blinded you." This sounds not only like a human or mortal, but a mortal little kid.
The next time I noticed Odysseus acting like a human or mortal, was in the story of "Scylla and Charybdis" when Scylla ate some of his men. Odysseus at that time, lost what he thought, were his best men, he said that it was one of the saddest things he's seen: "As he, if then he takes a fish,/ Flings it aloft out of the sea/ All quivering, even so she swung them/ All quivering up to her high crag./ There she devoured them, one and all,/ Before her doorway, while they shrieked/ And ...

... that John Oakhurst is a extremely calm person.
John, the gambler, is an extremely courageous person. He has proven this by a number of actions in this story. First of all he shows tons of courage by not getting scared when the travelers and him get snowed in. If it where me I probably would have run off like Uncle Billy did. Another example of when Mr. Oakhurst showed courage was when he kicked Uncle Billy to stop him from laughing. Most people would have just told him to stop laughing. But not Mr. Oakhurst, he just gave him a swift kick in the stomach. That to me shows the utmost courage in the world.
