At first, he is described as a valiant hero of the land, bravely fighting for King Duncan, but his overreaching ambition causes him to do vile acts, completely overriding his conscience. Macbeth’s conscience, although present, is vastly underpowered compared to his ambition. We see Macbeth’s conscience in scenes where he had just committed an evil act under the influence of ambition.
