Othello is a Moor in Venice, who has attained success as a renowned general and has married fair Desdemona. Iago, his ancient, envies him and resents the fact that Cassio has been named Othello's lieutenant.
They are all sent to Cyprus to defend the island from an attack that never comes. There, Iago plots against Othello, cunningly making him believe that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio.
Iago is constantly maneuvering other characters and makes an ideal villain, so clever and cynical, as well as close to his victim. Indeed, his malicious plans do end up in a bloodbath and tragedy, though not exactly as he intended them to.
