I need some examples of tragic heros for an essay I'm writing. If you don't know what a tragic hero is, it is a character who is born with good intentions, but is destroyed by a fatal character flaw. They often go through a reversal of fate (going from good times to bad times) and will realize their flaw which has destroyed them before either dying or having something else horrible happen to them. Examples I have so far are Victor Frankenstein, and Hamlot.

I don't know, Romeo is a strech. I think his only real flaw was loving Juliet, but I don't know if it could be said he had an epiphany about his flaw before his death. Many realizing that he could only be with Juliet in death could be considered as one?

Romeo's tragic flaw was his inability to control his emotions. He starts the play melancholy because of Rosaline, but instantly falls in love with Juliet. He kills Tybalt after Mercutio's death without thinking of the consequences. When Balthazar tells him that Juliet has died, he decides to kill himself within minutes. He's a tragic hero.
