I don't think Keats really deals with the byronic hero as such. His heroes tend to be anti-heroes (if you think this is byronic, its up to you). Endymion, for instance, sleeps, wishes and dreams, but gets help from other people, really. Try looking at the Eve of St Agnes.

You could always focus on his byronic women. Lamia has a very interesting attitude to desire, as do the women in endymion. Its the women in keats, im afraid.
