Home » , » Sketch the character of Sebastian

Sebastian is one of the comic characters in the play,  The Tempest. His role and function in this play are very important. He is the brother of Alonso,  the King of Naples. We meet him at the very beginning of the play. 

Sebastian does not show any nervousness in the face of dander on the ship. He has a sort of understanding with Antonio. He is categorical in his way of speaking. He has an imperious nature. He helps to kill King Alonso and his faithful councilor, Gonzalo. Sebastian and Antonio resemble each other in most respects. Both are by nature and temperament mockers. Both dislike Gonzalo who is a good man. Finally, we can say that Antonio has some traits in his character. These are treachery,  cruelty,  lack of conscience, ambition, and so on.

Anyway, Sebastian is a villain no doubt. He supplies plenty of comedy in this play.
