Mark Antony, Caesar's friend and the leader of the second Triumvirate, is loyal, compassionate, astute, and controlling. His compassionate trait is most important. "Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral./He was my friend, faithful and just to me." (Act III, Scene II, Lines 86-87)

Marcus Brutus, a conspirator, and a former friend of Caesar's, is naive, direct, sincere, and idealistic. His sincere trait is most important. " It must be by his death; and for my part,/I know no personal cause to spurn at him,/But for the general. He would be crowned." (Act II, Scene I, Lines 10-12)

Caius Cassius, Brutus's brother-in-law, and the ringleader of the conspirators, is unscrupulous, tactful, deceptive, and dishonorable. His tactful quality is most important. "Brutus and Caesar: what should be in that 'Caesar'?/Why should that name be sounded more than your?/ Write them together, your is as fair a name" (Act I, Scene II, Lines 142-144)

Julius Caesar, a former beloved senator of Rome, and the man assassinated by the Conspirators, is popular, vain, arrogant, and heroic. His arrogant trait is most important. "But I am constant as the Northern Star,/Of whose true-fixed and resting quality/There is no fellow in the firmament." (Act III, Scene I, Lines 60-62)

Portia, Brutus's wife who committed suicide, is loving, dignified, intelligent, and tender. Her dignified trait is most important. "Within the bond of marriage, tell me, Brutus,/ Is it excepted I should know no secrets/That appertain to you?" (Act II, Scene I, Lines 280-282)

Calpurnia, Caesar's wife, is troubled, concerned, barren, and affectionate. Her concerned trait is most important. "Do not go forth today. Call it my fear/That keeps you in the house and not your own." (Act II, Scene II, Lines 50-51)
