The Pilgrim Badge: Chaucer very clearly likes to recognize and amplify the different traits of the characters who tell their tales, perhaps because they are trying to win a bet so they tell the craziest stories that they can think of that most accurately describe their character (though not all do this, like the Wife of Bath). It is easy to see that he recognizes and respects the honor of knights, and chivalric code, but also that he respects the ways of Christianity and perhaps on some level does not like people who are disobedient towards the way things should be and are fake. Much like the Prioress who is seen to be vaguely fake in the way she acts, despite trying to act dainty and courtly, even though being a member of the church. I think he is fond of those who are honest, respectful, and true to themselves and their ideals, but he does not like people who are generally unpleasant or rude. I am not sure where I would go on a personal pilgrimage to, as I am not religious, but on a cultural standpoint I would probably choose to go to Portugal, just for the sake of seeking out the roots that I am most proud of. Which are my prominent Portuguese roots that I get from my fathers side of the family, who did most of the work raising me. I would enjoy getting to fully understand a culture in it's full force that I was raised in only partially.

Beowulf Badge: Beowulf is supposed to be a representation of not only a great man, but also a great king. He is supposed to be strong, intelligent, wise, and a good warrior. He shows this multiple times in not only physical prowess in the fights he is in, but also on an intellectual level in his fights. Where he talks to his fellow men as if he was on their level, rather than being a king above them, which is often an example of being a good leader. Here we have an image of Beowulf, he is clearly strong, muscular, and almost blonde in hair color. His face is commanding and he seems from the image to be quite tall. Here again, we have Beowulf as blonde, he looks older here than the last picture where he looked young, less muscle composition in his face, he is wearing a crown rather than a skull helmet, but he looks more wise than strong. He is also wearing armor in this image rather than being mostly naked. Unlike the last two here he has brown hair, with markings on his face, he is once again shown to be strong as he is fighting Grendell in this image, he is wearing armor, but once again of a different style, not covering his arms this time.

The Other Badge: My favorite "Other" so far has been the Bisclavret because not only is he a werewolf, but he is still human enough to be intelligent, and he messes up his ex-wife who betrayed him, and the man who she essentially cheated on him with. The knight who can shapeshift was a very interesting "Other", but I am not quite sure how I feel about him. As he was a shapeshifter, and that sits weirdly for me. He also dies, so there's that. I'd argue that the Green Knight is an other, but I am not sure. I like the Green Knight story and felt like he made a good "Other" as he is interesting, intelligent, wise, and magical.
