When the story begins, Macbeth truly is a “peerless kinsman” to the king (1.4.66); however, as the story progresses others refer to him in this way only because they are oblivious to his true desire” (Balwan 3). As Balwan states, Macbeth has as significant change due to the so call “power” of being king. While Macbeth transitions to a new form of character, he isolates himself from Lady Macbeth. As the power increases, Macbeth is determined to kill.
“We have scorch’d the snake, not kill’d it.” (3.2.15).Macbeth realized that he has ultimate control in the lives of others. Macbeth develops a god complex, the Tree Weird sisters show Macbeth that he will be great. Macbeth learn very quickly that he can get his people to kill anyone who was in his way. Banquo was one of the many kills that were accomplished, this is when Macbeth realized the sisters were right about his prophecies.
Lady Macbeth’s belittlement by her husband brings her to a state of aggrievement, which she displays while she sleepwalks. She unconsciously mumbles, “What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account? Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?” (5.1.39-42). Lady Macbeth is deeply troubled by her involvement in turning Macbeth into a murderous monster, and is frustrated by her inability to control the situation.
Macbeth changes much from the beginning of play to the ending of the play. Macbeth is a noble person in the beginning but then turns into an evil person at the end of it because he wanted everything quickly. Macbeth hires three murders to kill Banquo and Fleance, he hires the murders to kill them because the witches told him that Banquos son will rule the castle for a very long time. This triggers something in Macbeth and drives him crazy to get everything quickly.
Macbeth evolves from a hero to a murderer throughout this dramatic play. At first Macbeth appears to be a true hero is a respected general, a devoted husband and a person who has shown great loyalty to King Duncan Throughout the story it shows many changes, he started being selfish and get involved with his ambition who made him take bad decisions. The moment when the change started was when the witches told him how everything was going to be. After listing the witches and the ideas of his wife he started killing people that trust him Macbeth's evil deed causes him to suffer from fear and guilt, which leads to even more evil crimes. Lady Macbeth convinces him to commit to murder the King Duncan to take his throne.
When in a relationship, one's quest for power, can result in an endless effort to satisfy this desire, producing a tragic outcome. In the tragedy of Macbeth, William Shakespeare explores how greed and ambition has an influence on one’s actions, leading to the occurrence of a tragedy. In the case of Macbeth, greed and ambition results in Macbeth becoming a highly manipulative, and dangerous individual. The dominant status Lady Macbeth owns, allows her to influence Macbeth into committing harmful acts. When Lady Macbeth’s dominant status begins to deteriorate, Macbeth begins to mature, gradually becoming the more dominant individual within their relationship.
From the murder of Duncan (to achieve the role of King), the ordered execution of his close friend Banquo (to dismiss his fear), and even the loss of his wife, Lady Macbeth, Macbeth’s violent behaviour was destructive to his relationships, resulting in the death of his loved ones, as well as

The character to change the most by far in the play is Macbeth, he also had the most effect on other characters throughout the play.

In the beginning, Macbeth felt a deep guilt about planning to kill King Duncan. Once he did kill him, though, his conscious slowly started ebbing away. Within a short time, he was killing and manipulating many people; he even went as far as to kill the innocent wife and children of a man whom he considered his enemy. What started out as a doubt acted upon became a quick, almost unstoppable path of destruction. Every aspect of who he was, his conscious, was covered by the dark shadow cast by the corrupting sin.
Macbeth’s character development plays a big role in the unraveling of the plot. Macbeth is known by his kinsmen as loyal, trustworthy, and brave. He has a good reputation, and a strong relationship with the king. It comes as a shock when he even considers killing Duncan, as he is aware that this is wrong, and that he may become king anyways. “It is too full o’ the milk of human kindness, To catch the nearest way.”
