Maybe Scott meant to ask who your favorite executed/assassinated person from history is.

It depends if by favorite, one means most entertaining vs most admired.

Do you also think that person was the most heroic criminal from history? If not, who do you think was the most heroic criminal from history?

If you were put in the same or very similar circumstances as these criminals, would you hope to make the same choices as some or all of these criminals? Why or why not? What role does bravery play in your answer, meaning in your hypothetical choice about whether or not to follow in the criminal footsteps of these criminals? In other words, if you were hypothetically a much more courageous person how would that change your answer if at all?
Probably Eve.

Hell no, I'd just stay in paradise and do as I was told.
