During his time at the monastery, Hugh shows his developing sense of responsibly by what he says and does. Hugh's father left him the responsibility of keeping the secret of who he truly was and where he came from. Though Hugh wanted to leave and go explore with his best friend, Dickon, Hugh stayed and finished the work that Brother John assigned him. Hugh's duty was long and tiring, but he knew that without him the monks could not copy the books. Hugh's sense of responsibility grew every day during the story. Hugh demonstrates perseverance many times by what he thinks, says, and does. At some points, because of Hugh's lame leg, Hugh couldn't walk as fast as the others and never did he ask them to slow down. Also, when Hugh found the missing pages to the book of the Seynt of Graal Brother John made him work for 2 hours straight while the other monks were eating dinner, but Hugh didn’t complain once. Dickon told Hugh that he shouldn't waste his time on finding and fixing the missing pages from the book of Seynt of Graal. However, Hugh knew that the pages were not only important for finding the Holy Grail, but also because the book needed to be completed. Perseverance was one of Hugh's most prominent virtues.
