On the upside, this senseless and painful tragedy is a great [[TheLostLenore personal motivator.]] The Crusading Widower will earn the "crusading" part of his name by hunting down and killing (at best apprehending) those responsible, however tangentially. ''Or'' [[RefusalOfTheCall he will try to drown his sorrows]], only to be "rescued" by a friend who will motivate him with an offer to somehow [[TheAtoner atone]] or catch the culprits. If it's a fantasy or sci-fi setting, a third goal may present itself: [[{{Necromantic}} bringing them back to life.]] This is [[CameBackWrong rarely a good thing]]. His loved ones will probably beg him not to, or he will choose not to resurrect them as part of a FriendOrIdolDecision.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariya_Oktyabrskaya Mariya Oktyabrskaya]], a Soviet tank driver who lost her husband when the latter was killed in action near Kiev in 1941. She enlisted and sold all her possessions to raise the 50,000 roubles needed to donate a tank to the army on one condition, they let her drive, the State Defence Committee agreed thinking it'd be good publicity. When she arrived at the battle of Smolensk in 1943 the other soldiers considered her a publicity stunt... until she started fighting, maneuvering her T-34, emblazoned with the words "Fighting Girlfriend", like a veteran. She destroyed many German machine gun and artillery positions and was the first of her brigade to breach the enemy positions. And [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=64071327108 that was only the beginning of her two-year campaign against the Nazis]], which would ultimately gain her the Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union, the highest award for military bravery offered by the USSR.
