Domitius Enobarbus

Friend to Antony. An officer, one of Antony's closest friends and supporters. Enobarbus is a cynical observer of the events of the play, disapproving of Antony often but always speaking from a complex and sophisticated perspective. His sense of irony runs deep, and he is completely outspoken until his master begins to lose self-control. His penetrating insights make him one of the play's most memorable characters. After he has betrayed Antony, Enobarbus' keen insight is turned on himself, and he dies of grief.
