Hey, I'm not sure what you are after here. Really any villainy in the novel is through Curley, the boss's son. He's got his own issues (small guy complex) which he takes out on Lennie who is unable to understand things. The heroism can be seen in George's agonizing decision to end his friend's life.

You need to submit each question separately (one by one), it is a little confusing the way you have it.
