* The poet Virgil guides ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'''s narrator through Hell and Purgatory with his philosophical wisdom. As a Roman poet, Virgil allegorically stands for wisdom obtainable by human reason, and he fittingly leaves the poem once Dante has to ascend to Heaven and face the world of theology.

Even though this character is better skilled, faster and more experienced than TheProtagonist, they aren't the hero or main protagonist, either because they are not TheChosenOne, because they have already [[RetiredBadass grown too old for the task]] or [[HeroOfAnotherStory have their own]] job [[RelegatedMentor to do]]. Their role is to [[ChekhovsSkill introduce a new skill]] or [[TrainingFromHell sharpen the current skills]] of the protagonist, often hoping to [[PassingTheTorch pass the torch]] because they know their career is [[EndOfAnAge coming to an end]]. This character [[MentorOccupationalHazard may die]], so that the protagonist can [[InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn learn to stand on their own two feet]].
