They fear and hate that he will become a king. Brutus loved Caesar yet he stilled feared that the people would accept Caesar as their king of Rome. He wanted to kill him because he thought it would be better for Rome. “What means this shouting? I do fear the people Choose Caesar for their king” (1. 2. 78.). And as Brutus feared Caesar being king so did Cassius. Cassius feared Caesar but was also jealous of him and his power. “It doth amaze me, A man of such a feeble temper should So get the start of the majestic world, And bear the palm alone.” (1.2.128.). Even though Brutus and Cassius had different reasons for killing Caesar they both still thought it was necessary.
A final difference between Brutus and Cassius is their trustworthiness. Cassius is not very trustworthy because he manipulates Brutus to join his cause to kill Caesar. He did this by putting fake letters around his home from the people of Rome saying that they think Brutus would be a greater leader then Caesar. “Where Brutus may but find it; and throw this Ion at his window; set this up with wax upon old Brutus’ statue.” (1.3.144.). Unlike Cassius, Brutus is very trustworthy and is very loyal to anybody he is in a relationship. “What need we any spur but our own cause To prick us to redress?” (2.1.123.). From this quote Brutus says that he trust the people at his meeting enough that they do not need to say an oath. It also says that he is trustworthy and will stick with a plan even if it means taking his own life, which he eventually does.
Although Cassius and Brutus have some similarities they have a lot more that is different about their personalities. Brutus was a more trustworthy and morally right person but was still a murderer just like Cassius. People should be trustworthy like Brutus and try to do things that we think is right. In the end both Brutus and Cassius take their life, Cassius from humiliation and Brutus for Rome.
