Mentor as evolved hero

Sometimes the mentor has gone through the hero’s journey themselves, and in their wiser years offers the wisdom they learned to the next generation of heroes.

Lyze of Kiel was the hero of the Battle of the Ice Claws and Soren’s inspiration.

Bilbo Baggins was the hero of The Hobbit, and raised Frodo, the hero of The Lord of the Rings, as his heir and told him the stories of his adventures.
