Music for the Article
Not quite a hero, completely lacking in heroic impulses, but even as he shamelessly runs and hides we somehow still find ourselves rooting for him. His cowardice is sometimes played for comedy, sometimes portrayed as simply the most sensible course of action; it seldom if ever endangers innocents. The Lovable Coward always uses reason and considers this a point of pride. This Lovable Coward is often a trickster, specializing in weaseling his way out of dangerous situations. He may be a sidekick; if he is the main hero, he may find himself an Accidental Hero for all the wrong reasons.
A character with the major characteristic of being a coward, especially when compared to any fearless characters of the story. Thing is, when push comes to shove, they have nothing to envy about the naturally powerful characters.
Unlike some people, the character's fearful nature isn't eliminated after their moment/s of glory. They remain scaredy-cats and/or insecure in their regular lives, despite the fact that they can kick major butt when they put their minds into it. Many of them will tell everyone to think nothing of it, because they think the fear they felt trumps the heroism they performed.
Unlike The So-Called Coward, this character is not actually misunderstood and does not need to be viewed by other characters as cowardly; it is his own opinion that matters. (And the so-called coward may be perfectly confident in his own courage.) Unlike the Accidental Hero, these are characters that manage to get things done with their own worth, despite their fears.

This was a good article_LOVE SCOOBY DOO SONG a real classic.
Very appropriate with shake and shiver. Bravey is not the absence of not having fear but being afraid and stil
These characters to me seem to HARD on them selves-they are afraid and feel that they are a coward. When in fact they would help in most situations.
