Sydney Carton is the moral hero of the story but he did not accomplish this on his own He came to love Lucie and as a result he underwent a variety of personality changes The moral heroism of Sydney arises because of his unrequited love for Lucie Because of his love for her he is willing to do anything for her even sacrifice himself for her happiness Through how the story played out it is evident that if Sydney had never met Lucie he would still be a scruffy looking lazy man with no reason to live In fact Lucie is probably all that is holding him back from committing suicide Out of his love for Lucie Sydney is willing to do anything even sacrifice his life for her happiness You can see this when he comes to switch places with Charles he says I come from her - your wife dear Darnay Page 327 Sydney first says that he had come from Lucie yet she wouldnt have possibly have let him go through with something like that had she known What Sydney really meant by that was that he was coming for Lucie possibly thinking that he had wasted his life prior to meeting her so if he was to give his life it would best be to her Also as he is dictating his letter to Charles before switching with him I should never have used the longer opportunity If it had been otherwiseIf it had been otherwise -- Page 329 Sydney cannot think what would happen because there could be no otherwise This was his final decision He was positive that he would go through with this and did without a moments hesitation He knew that there would be no turning back for what was there to turn back to We can now clearly see that Sydney has very deep love for Lucie and is willing to give up his life
