A Midsummer Night's Dream Characters

Egeus is a courtier at Theseus’s court and his master of revels. 

A sterling defender of old-fashioned patriarchy, he intends either to have his daughter Hermia marry the man he choose or to execute her. He has no fondness at all for Lysander, who shows him scant respect, and calls for him to be prosecuted when he finds Hermia with him in the woods, but he must accept Theseus’s decision to the contrary. He presents the various entertainment options for the evening of the wedding, discouraging as best he can the Duke from choosing the Mechanicals’ play.
