Eurylochus has no honor while Odysseus is quite honorable. E. is only courting Penelope because of what he hopes to gain. Odysseus is defending what he has already established. He tells E. that the crime of the suitors have committed is that they have tried to steal from him, steal his world. I am not sure what literary term you are looking for, but in this particular section these two characters are protagonist and antagonist.
