Hank, like the nobles, is very confident and sure of himself. He exudes an air of power and has quite the ego. The nobles in the story, such as King Arthur, also share these qualities of confidence and self-assurance. However, Hank is different in that, for one, he has time traveled to King Arthur's court, and therefore he has knowledge of advanced technology and updated ways of conducting politics and government.

The most salient difference between Hank and the nobles is that Hank is from a more advanced society and has a knowledge of technology that is unknown to anyone else. Ironically, his knowledge of the modern equipment gives Hank the same attitude of superiority that the nobles share. Thus, his one difference are also his similarity to the nobles.
