Telemakhos, son of Odysseus played a very important role in the Odyssey. Though he was only involved in two main parts of the story, he played an important role helping Odysseus regain dominance in Ithaca. His role in the beginning was less significant because character development took awhile of himself.
Telemakhos goes through a huge character change during the book. At the beginning of the epic poem he is a shy, very hesitant, and unconfident.

a god on his side. If he didn't though it might have ruined Odysseus whole plan.
Telemakhos was a powerful character in this book yet he was still not the main character of the story. He didn't have as great qualities as Odysseus, but I got the sense his characteristics were still evolving. As he gets older I think he will match up to Odysseus. At the end of the story he is very self-assured.
