Morocco is certainly proud of his own accomplishments, as he holds back nothing in relating his brave deeds to Portia. He also speaks eloquently and is well-mannered, though bragging would not necessarily be seen as a gentlemanly trait. After he chooses the wrong casket, however, Morocco leaves without any kind of scene.... he accepts the judgment as agreed. Thus, although he is a prideful man.... he is also a man of his word.
