Answer

Paradox = A seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true. Therefore, "Lesser . . ., and greater"

Indirect characterization is where the reader is made to infer from the character's actions. Not knowing what else has been said, I would choose "Bellona's bridegroom".

A valiant person is courageous. (Possessing or showing courage or determination)
