Brutus. He's one of my favourite historical heroes - the noblest Roman of them all - trying to do the right thing uncynically in a cynical time and place - and failling because of the manner of this nobility. Unlike the snakeoil salesman that is Mark Antony or the scheming propagandist Octavian, Brutus fails to recover the Roman Republic because the tries to explain honestly, but not smoothly, his motives and because he treats Mark Antony with honour and as a citizen of the new Republic he hopes to secure.
