Hero & Heroine

he·ro (hîr) n. A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life.

her·o·ine (hr-n) n. A woman noted for courage and daring action.

Usage Note: The word hero should no longer be regarded as restricted to men in the sense “a person noted for courageous action,” though heroine is always restricted to women. The distinction between heroine and hero is still useful, however, in referring to the principal character of a fictional work, inasmuch as the virtues and qualities that become a traditional literary heroine like Elizabeth Bennet or Isabel Archer are generally quite different from those that become a traditional literary hero like Tom Jones or Huckleberry Finn.

pl. he·roes.
