Iago also claims that Othello may have slept with his wife Emilia, “It is thought abroad that ’twixt my sheets he has done my office” (1.3.324-325) however these claims lack substance and do not explain Iago’s true motivation for his revenge scheme. Iago’s inability to look beyond his jealousy is chilling and the extent he will go to for revenge against Othello, Desdemona, Cassio, Roderigo and even his own wife Emilia reflects his love for pain and
Brabantio views on Othello and Desdemona’s relationship were quite different from his daughters. “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see: She has deceiv’d her father and may thee” (Shakespeare.1.3.289-290). Brabantio says this quote to Othello saying that she deceives her father by being with the Moor, so why wouldn’t she deceive him as well. Brabantio didn’t approve of the relationship because he is the Moor and this is racist. This is heartbreaking because he was friendly to Othello and welcoming him into his home until he finds out he was sleeping with his daughter.
Is is known that Ophelia, to him, has become nothing because she was dishonest, but he lies to her blatantly and thereby he has defined himself as as worthless as she is. It is unclear what exactly he lies about, whether it was having loved her or not having loved her, but no matter the condition he has lied.

Iago fains an innocent person but deceives Othello in many parts. Perhaps some of the most notable when Iago accidentally blurts out ‘incriminating information to Othello, which entail Desdemona's previous spouts with her father. “But I am much to blame. I humbly do beseech you of your pardon For too much loving you.”(147). Also occurring when Iago beguilingly warns Othello of jealousys’ renowned bite.
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed.
