Titus Andronicus Characters

Aaron the Moor is a black man captured by Titus among the Goths, and Tamora’s lover. 

He is not a very nice man, as he not only enjoys doing evil but also likes to lead others into doing so as well. He encourages Chiron and Demetrius to rape Lavinia rather than attempt to seduce her, and plots the death of Bassianus before framing two of Titus’s sons for it. If that were not enough, he convinces Titus to chop off his own hand, as far as one can tell simply for his own amusement. He never shows any sign of genuinely caring for another human being until he is suddenly presented with his baby son by Tamora, and decides not to kill it. Running away to save the baby, he is captured by the Goths and finds himself in Lucius’s power. He proceeds to brag about how evil he is.  Whether he tells the truth or is merely bragging is unknown.
