His brother feels that Robin is leading them to death for his own victory. His dislike started when Robin's father left his stepbrothers mother because Robin felt that his father was betraying his mother by being with another women. Although Robin's brother sees it all like this, he finally understands that his intentions are good for all people and that he only means to help and get back what has been taken from them for so long. Once his brother realizes this they unite and help take down the forces of Nottingham. One of Robin's major traits is never showing fear of his enemies. Even when he is outnumbered ten to one, he still takes out the enemy easily and calmly without showing any fear. This great trait gives the readers the impression that he is somewhat invincible yet it's justified by his calmness and his skill.
