Results

 

Mostly A’s: The Affable (Mark) Antony

A truly loyal friend to Caesar, Antony also knows how to persuade and manipulate, almost as well as Caesar. In fact, he pretends to side with the assassins in order to save his own life. He’s vengeful but patient, waiting for the perfect moment to spur Romans to mutiny and chaos over Caesar’s death. Antony is loyal to his friends—but if you’re not a true friend, you’d better be careful.

 

 

 

 

Mostly B’s: The Stately Caesar

Caesar is the most powerful man Rome has ever seen, and he basks in the glory and love the Romans have for him. However, he is so in love with himself that he believes himself as invincible and everlasting as the North Star—unfortunately, this infallibility makes Caesar ignore warnings and omens about his upcoming death.

 

 

 

 

Mostly C’s: The Confident Cassius

Intelligent, experienced, and opportunistic—Cassius finds success both as a general and as a politician. Like Caesar, he’ll find a way to seize power, even if it means manipulating and lying his way to get there. Cassius is a realist, seeing opportunities to get ahead and make life work his own way.

 

 

 

 

Mostly D’s: The Undecided Brutus

Brutus loves the Republic of Rome and will do anything to defend his country and government. The problem is, he loves his friends, too. While Brutus loves Caesar as a friend and mentor, he fears Caesar will become too powerful and controlling. Brutus is truly an honorable man, unlike the rest of Caesar’s assassins who are simply jealous and power hungry themselves. Because Brutus is so dedicated to Rome, he doesn’t see that the others are manipulating him…until it’s too late.
