You can follow the eNotes links below for a character sketch of Marcus Antonius (Mark Antony), Caesar's closest friend and top general in William Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar. Antony is originally targeted to be murdered along with Caesar, but Brutus convinces Trebonius that the man "given... to wildness, and much company" is no threat to them. However, Antony's admiration of Caesar is strong, and he delivers a speech vowing revenge, convincing the crowd of his own grief as well as Caesar's greatness. He later forms an alliance with Octavius and becomes one of Rome's most powerful men--for a short while.
