Beowulf shows the characteristics of him on a quest by killing Grendel to eliminate the problem in Herot because they were loud while eating and drinking. This shows gluttony in the story. Another way he shows he is on a quest is killing Grendel’s mother for killing Hrothgar’s closest friend, and a great Geat and warrior.
