Julius Caesar Characters

The First Plebeian chooses to listen to Brutus when the latter comes forward to explain his murdering Caesar. 

He is easily convinced that Caesar was a tyrant, but Antony’s speech causes him some doubts. He is soon converted to Antony’s cause by the sight of Caesar’s body, and is the first to suggest arson, calling on his fellows to burn the conspirators’ houses with torches lit at Caesar’s pyre once they have honorably immolated the corpse. He knows that Cinna is the name of one of the conspirators, and helps to tear to pieces the first man of that name he and his companions come across.
