History Characters (11-20) Julius Caesar

Brutus Cassius Antony Octavius

Lepidus Lucius Soothsayer Calpurnia

Portia 11 He appears first as a confidant and a devoted follower of

Caesar, and he offers Caesar a crown during the feast of Lupercal. He is able to dupe Brutus into allowing him to speak at Caesar's funeral and by his funeral oration to excite the crowd to rebellion. He is one of the triumvirs, and he and

Octavius defeat Brutus and Cassius at Philippi. Antony

12 The brother-in-law of Brutus and an acute judge of human nature, he organizes the conspiracy against Caesar and recruits Brutus by passionate argument and by deviously placed, forged letters. He is defeated by Antony at the first

battle of Philippi, and he commits suicide when he mistakenly believes that Brutus has been defeated. Cassius

13 He warns Caesar during the celebration of the feast of Lupercal to "beware the ides of March." He again warns

Caesar as he enters the Senate House. Soothsayer

14 He joins Antony and Octavius to form the Second Triumvirate to rule the Roman Empire following the assassination of Caesar. He is weak, and Antony uses him essentially to run

errands. Lepidus

15 A successful military leader who wants the crown of Rome. Unfortunately, he is not the man he used to be and is imperious, easily flattered, and overly ambitious. He is assassinated midway through the play; later, his spirit appears

to Brutus at Sardis and also at Philippi. Julius Caesar

16 The wife of Brutus and the daughter of Marcus Cato. She argues that those familial relationships make her strong enough to conceal Brutus' secrets. She commits suicide when

she realizes that her husband's fortunes are doomed. Portia

17 Brutus' young servant; Brutus treats him with understanding, gentleness, and tolerance.

Lucius 18 The adopted son and heir of Julius Caesar; he is one of the

triumvirs who rule following the death of Caesar. He and Antony lead the army that defeats Cassius and Brutus at Philippi. Octavius

19 A judicial magistrate of Rome. He is widely admired for his noble nature. He joins the conspiracy because he fears that

Caesar will become a tyrant. He defeats Octavius' forces in the first battle at Philippi, but loses the second battle and commits suicide rather than be taken prisoner.

Brutus 20 The wife of Julius Caesar; she urges him to stay at home on the

day of the assassination because of the unnatural events of the previous night as well her prophetic dream in which Caesar's body is a fountain of blood.
