This is an apt description of Othello. He is brave, well respected, and he has a wife who loves him. Unfortunately, his jealousy is all consuming..... it takes away his ability to see clearly, and in turn, his decisions ruin not only his only life but are responsible for the murder of his beloved wife and his own suicide.
