Othello Characters

Montano is the Governor of Cyprus. He sends news to the Venetian Senate of the Turkish advance towards the island. 

Esteemed by the Duke, he is however not considered as great a soldier as Othello, whom they send to replace him for the crisis. As he has served under the Moor and regards him highly, Montano has no complaints as to this. An upright soldier, he is an honorable gentleman, and disturbed at Cassio’s drunkenness. When he is gravely wounded by the latter, he charges Iago on his worth as a soldier to speak the truth about what happened during the quarrel. He is recovered enough to be on guard the night of Desdemona’s murder, and is one of those who responds to Emilia’s calls for help. He disarms Othello before he can do himself any harm, and chases after Iago, successfully capturing him.
