He is superstitious to a point; however, he could not afford to be excessively superstitious granted he is a commander. To corroborate, he consulted with his best friend, Brutus. Brutus persuaded Caesar that the explanation behind Calphurnia’s dream is that Romans were stooping their hands in a fountain of his blood in the hope that they will derive strength from Caesar. Nevertheless, Brutus was deceiving him and manipulating the dream to his advantage, thus their plan can progress. He thought Caesar was becoming too power-hungry, so he joined the conspirators to assist with the assassination solely due to his love for Rome.
The great irony surrounding Cassis throughout the story is that he uses his greatest asset to his fullest potential when he allows Brutus to take effective control of the republican faction. Cassius believes that his nobility of Rome are responsible for the government of Rome. They have allowed a man to gain too much power, way more than he needed, therefore, they have responsibility to stop him. Cassius absolutely hates Caesar, but he also deeply resents being subservient to a tyrant, and there are hints that he will have no trouble fighting for his personal freedom. Cassius does not back down following the almost dictatorial pronouncements of his equal, Brutus, even though he absolutely disagree heartedly with most of Brutus’s decisions.

He acted on greed, hatred, and jealousy instead of having the good of Rome in mind. Author, Donald Wasson, finds that several of the senators, including Cassius, who were involved in the conspiracy against Caesar were “friends and supporters of Pompey who sought both high office and profit” in his article The Murder of Julius Caesar (Wasson). Cassius did not care about what Caesar was doing or would do to Rome with his power, instead he only worried about having power over everyone else. He told Brutus about Julius Caesar’s disabilities and commented about his amazement that “a man of such a feeble temper should so get the start of the majestic world and bear the palm alone” (I.ii.131-133).

He thought that if he could get all the plebeians on his side, that they would attack the conspirators and trust Antony, therefore making it easy to take on the spot for power.
