Desdmonda a pure lady was accused by Othello that she was having sex with another man { Cassio} and lied to him about doing it. But in all reality Iago set the whole thing up as a huge scheme.
Othello ABC Book By Jaleel Best
A courtesan, or prostitute, in Cyprus. Bianca’s favorite customer is Cassio, who teases her with promises of marriage. But he choes not to marry her any time soon.
Othello’s lieutenant. Cassio a young and inexperienced soldier, whose high position is much hated by Iago. Truly devoted to Othello, Cassio is extremely ashamed after being implicated in a drunken brawl on Cyprus and losing his place as lieutenant. Iago uses Cassio’s youth, good looks, and friendship with Desdemona to play on Othello’s insecurities about Desdemona’s fidelity.
The official authority in Venice, the duke has great respect for Othello as a public and military servant. His primary role within the play is to reconcile Othello and Brabanzio in Act I, scene iii, and then to send Othello to Cyprus.
Duke Of Venice
Iago’s wife and Desdemona’s attendant. A truthful, wholesome woman, she is deeply attached to her mistress and distrustful of her husband.
Cassio was involved in a drunken fight with Rodrigo ended up losing his spot as a lieutenant and losing his job.
Brabanzio’s kinsman who accompanies Lodovico to Cyprus. Amidst the chaos of the final scene, Graziano mentions that Desdemona’s father has died.
Quoted form Desdemona: "In following him I follow but myself;
Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
But seeming so for my peculiar end."

Iag0 the villian of the play. He used manipulation as his trump card to get revenge on cassio just because he gotten a higher rank than him he created a scheme that caused 3 peoples deaths.

Even though he was in 2 scenes he showed othello the confusion of the word lie.
In the end of the move Desdemona, Emilia, and Othello were killed all because of Iagos wrong doing.
Lodvico is one of brabantios henchmen who acts like a messenger to venice to cyphrus.
he governor of Cyprus before Othello. We see him first in Act II, as he recounts the status of the war and awaits the Venetian ships.
A characteristic that othello has but lacks in trust in himself he always listens to others but never stops and think for himself.
Othello is the main hero of this play.
He is very free spirited and gets manipulated very easy because of his nobel kind nature , even though he died he died a hero who really loved Desdmonda.
I would say emilia and bianca are very desperate and provacative in please their men that they love and will pretty much will do anything to get it
Othello was quarreling with Desdemona when he first made her cry taunting her making her feel bad about herself and kept calling her a "whore"
A jealous suitor of Desdemona. Young, rich, and foolish, Roderigo is convinced that if he gives Iago all of his money, Iago will help him win Desdemona’s hand.
Emilia stole the handkerchief and gave it to iago she she can please him. Iago made a copy of the handkerchief and gave it to Casio to fool Othello,
I would say that iago is a real tyrant because he was selfish enough to get people killed just so he can get a higher rank in the military and boss people around.
I would say Othello is Iagos undertaker because, he listen to everything he said and iago was playing him from the start like his puppet.
The play starts in Venice and moves to Cyprus when the Turks invade.
William Shakesphere
William Shake sphere the person who encouraged for the book yet along play to even exist. Because of his brilliance he has created masterpieces in his time.
I felt that it was strange that othello maybe could have felt like the odd man out only because he was the only african american to come to venice and fall in love with Desdemona.
I Felt for a young 21 year old {iago} to think of a terrible plan like that in such a young age proves that people will go through great measures to get what they want even if that means backstabbing.
