Character Traits and Background
Roderigo, if I were Othello, I would't be myself. I may seem to worship him, but really I wanna want to fulfill my own desires. If I showed my true colors, then I would be hurt too easily. For this reason, I hide my true emotions. I am not who you think I am.
Iago is Othello's ensign. He is very manipulative and rude. He is married to Emilia, but not affectionate towards her. Iago plans to destroy Othello by ruining his marriage. He's the Antagonist of the story. He has more than one reason for hating Othello.
Iago talks to the audience about his plan to have his wife, Emilia gets Desdemona to help Cassio to get his job back. As Cassio is talking with Desdemona, Iago plans on drawing Othello away to show him his suspicions were true.
For, sir, It is as sure as you are Roderigo, Were I the Moor I would not be Iago. In following him, I follow but myself. Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty, But seeming so for my particular end. For when my outward action doth demonstrate The native act and figure of my heart In complement extern, 'tis not long after But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve For daws to peck at. I am not what I am." (1.1.61-71)
