Orlando depicts a traditional protagonist character.He has nobel qualities.He is loved by all and sundry due to his virtues.His love and concern for even his subordiantes like ADAm makes him quite popular even among Oliver's own people.Also he is eqully brave as he defeats Charles,the duke wrester; a brabery indeed which is quite uncommon such a young age.

 

Olives depicts all antagonist traits. He is wicked fellow and denies his own brother the honest part of property .He deprives Orlando from leading a blue blood life which his birth deserves. He is alsoa coward who first lay hands on Orlando but when been opposed backs off.
