Duke of Venice
I am the Duke of Venice, a figure of authority and power. When confronted with the accusations brought against Othello, I exemplify the impartiality and wisdom expected of my position. As a voice of reason and fairness, I oversee the proceedings and make judgments based on the evidence presented. Although my appearance is brief, my character represents the higher moral and societal standards that should prevail, contrasting the chaos and tragedy that unfolds within the play.
