Scarus is one of Antony's commanders, who warns him not to fight by sea.
When Antony refuses to listen, he reaffirms his opinion to Camidius, and double-checks that their land forces will not be divided. He witnesses Cleopatra’s flight from the battle at Actium and curses her for it. He stays loyal to Antony, however. He explains Caesar’s unbelievable speed of action as his having left Rome in such a way that the spies did not realize it. He is primed for battle the morning of the land fight, though he has to announce to Antony that Enobarbus has deserted them. He is overjoyed at their victory and does not care about his wounds; Cleopatra promises him an armor made of gold that was once a king’s for his valiance. He witnesses Antony’s dejection as the battle of Actium goes badly for him.
