Odysseus

Smart

Odysseus only took 12 of his best men. So the rest could guard the ship.

"‘Then I ordered the rest of my loyal friends to stay there and guard the ship, while I selected the twelve best men and went forward."

Strong

He made the steak and drilled it in the Cyclopes eye.

"They held the sharpened olivewood stake, and thrust it into his eye, while I threw my weight on the end, and twisted it round and round, as a man bores the timbers of a ship with a drill that others twirl lower down with a strap held at both ends, and so keep the drill continuously moving."

Clever

He got the Cyclopes drunk so that he would fall asleep.
