Titus Andronicus - Tamora and Aaron

            In Shakespeare's play entitled "Titus Andronicus", Shakespeare has the ability to create two of the most immense characters that had several devil like traits. Tamora, Queen of the Goths, and Aaron are such complex characters that the word evil does not define who they truly are. Evil is defined as morally wrong, characterized accompanied by misfortune or suffering, or due to actual or imputed bad conduct or character. These two characters serve as a purpose of teaching the reader to create their own definition of evil as well as deciding if revenge is evil or just a character trait after one is hurt.
             Tamora as mentioned before is the Queen of the Goths as well as the mother of Chiron and Demetrius. Tamora is a mother who cares for her children, which is displayed when the play begins as she begs for mercy for her son. Even though she had positive motherhood traits, Tamora is often define as uncivilized and a savage. .
             Throughout the play, we see where she influences and promotes Chiron and Demetrius to molest Lavinia, who she tends to spare no feelings for. The reader is exposed to Tamora's thirst for revenge against Titus and the entire Andronicus family. Tamora and her family goes as far as disguising themselves in act five, scene two and she displays to the reader the revenge she seeks in lines such as: "Thus, in this strange and sad habiliment, I will encounter with Andronicus, and say I am revenge, sent from below to join with him and right his heinous wrong. Knock at his study, where, they say, he keeps, to ruminate strange plots of dire revenge; tell him revenge is come to join with, and work confusion on his enemies." (Lines 2305-2314) Now Aaron, the Moore and Tamora's lover, believes that Titus hasn't actually committed any illegal acts. Even though he looks at Titus as not being a criminal, he enables Tamora's to be able to make her revenge of destroying the Andronicus family becomes reality.
