Each of Lucifer's mouths holds a sinner—the three greatest sinners of human history, all Traitors to a Benefactor. In the center mouth dangles Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Christ. In the left and right mouths hang Brutus and Cassius, who murdered Julius Caesar in the Roman Senate.
Likewise, who are the three figures in Satan's mouth? In his three mouths, he chews on Judas Iscariot, Marcus Junius Brutus, and Gaius Cassius Longinus.
Hereof, does Cassius kill himself in Julius Caesar?
Cassius kills himself with the same sword that killed Caesar because he believes his friend Titinius has been captured by enemy troops. Cassius thus kills himself for no good reason.
What was Cassius role in the conspiracy?
Cassius is the most shrewd and active member of the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar. He functions in some respects as the conspirators' leader, although Brutus later takes this role. Both Cassius and Brutus are concerned by Caesar's rise to power, but Cassius's motivations are not nearly as honorable as Brutus's.
