On the other hand Brutus takes on multiple positions by targeting multiple types of people, "Romans, Countrymen, and lovers! Hear me," to provide for more people in the audience to open up to what he is saying, and as a result gain more support.

Brutus's heart truly lies with the people of Rome. He is merciful, intelligent, perceptive and willing to do what's right, all of which are vital traits for one who is to replace the great Caesar and bring righteousness and honor back to this great nation. Even the great Caesar recognized Brutus’s greatness as he held Caesar in unimaginable high regards.

In fact, Cassius believes that Brutus’ trustworthiness and honor will help to make the conspirators look better as a group. One of the key pieces to being a principled character is having an honorable reputation, and Brutus clearly demonstrates that he is one of the most honorable characters in the entire play.

Caesar was quite a capable leader, because he had confidence, determination, the ability to judge character, and he worked for the public good. However, Caesar let his popularity and confidence turn him into an arrogant and stubborn leader. Caesar himself shamelessly tells the senators that he will not change his mind in his “North Star” speech (3. 1.
Antony uses them to take advantage of the plebeians and turn them against Brutus. Brutus speaks first and appeals to ethos. He says, “Believe me for mine honor” in (III.ii, 15,16) . By this he means that people should listen to him and believe whatever he says because he has reputation as an honorable man. By him being a honorable man he thinks everyone should trust him.

In The Killer Angles, a strong leader during the American Civil War named Joshua Chamberlain was considered one of the most heroic generals for the Union Army. As I read the novel I cherish Chamberlain because he performs my leadership and thoughts of how I inspire people to recover.
