A culture hero is a prominent figure within a given society, often taking the form of a mythical person or animal with roots in ancient or proto-history.
In some instances the culture hero is a trickster, using wiles and well-intentioned disguises to save the community from some grave peril.
The culture hero may also be a real person inspiring a stagnant or perhaps ethically corrupted society, such as a rock star, a film star, an inventor, a discoverer, an admired politician or monarch, and so on.
