The 7 seasons of The 100 have a lot of important characters, but who really is the hero?
Some time after the words of Alycia Debnam-Carey (Lexa) who revealed the real reason why she returned in season 7 of The 100, we come back to other heroes of the series to ask a question: who is really the hero of The 100? There is no shortage of courageous characters, and whether it’s Clarke, Bellamy, Raven or Murphy, each has had a great development over the years. seasons. But if we had to find a single hero – or a single heroine of course – of the series, the one that stands out thanks to its intrigues, its evolution and its screen time, who would it be?

The person who most closely matches these criteria is Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos), and it is therefore she who, in our opinion, can be considered as the real heroine of The 100. If only by its origins, Octavia has already stood out from all 100 in the very first season. Second child in hiding, she lived illegally her entire life before landing on Earth with Clarke, Bellamy and the others. It was from then that she began to really blossom. Octavia became an outstanding warrior before finally taking the lead of her clan. Whether in the bunker or on the Sky Ring, she experienced the most intense plots of the series – which is saying a lot.

It was in season 7 of The 100 that she was able to truly show the extent of her evolution and the maturity acquired over the years, when she realized that war was not the solution. Octavia has taken to the middle of a battlefield to convince the last humans on Earth to collaborate and it is with this act of bravery that she sealed her fate. Obviously, we do not deny the importance of the course of Clarke who chained the difficult decisions, nor that of Raven who died more than any character or that of Bellamy. But comparing the importance of the arcs of each character, we must admit that Octavia has the most complete evolution.
