Thrice-great

trimegistus

triple soul

triple warrior, triptolemos

three veils, birth/paroketh/abyss

tripartite society, priest-king/warrior/peasant

the semi-divine were all three, not just one; this is how i know Paris was not a hero, because he had to choose; the caste-system inherent is only for the mundane humans and the gods; the semi-divine hero is not only both human and divine, but takes on all three societal role.

the hero risks divine anger, walking the line between; both upholding the cosmic order and also challenging it; not enough challenge, and one is merely a man; not enough humility, and one is struck down by the gods themselves.
