Horatio is a bit of a character foil to Hamlet. Where Hamlet is impulsive and passionate, Horatio is more grounded and rational. He helps balance Hamlet and make Hamlet reflect on his actions. In a moving tribute just before the play-within-the-play begins, in Act Two scene two, Hamlet praises Horatio as his soul's choice and declares that he loves Horatio because he is "not passion's slave" but is rather good-humored and philosophical through all of life's buffets. At the end of the play, Hamlet charges Horatio with the task of explaining the pile of bodies to the confused onlookers in court. Horatio in turn loved Hamlet for his friendship and his passionate spirit.
