Military Service Record
Campaign: Cyprus Expedition
Michael Cassio is a well-respected soldier and a loyal supporter of his general. His promotion to Lieutenant was a close decision over the talented Iago. The final decision was made as the army needs officers like Cassio with the right background in society. Although he has never led soldiers in battle, his background helps him to manage the complex political relationships with the court and civilian rulers that a military leader like Othello needs his lieutenant to undertake. However, there have been some concerns expressed about the effect that alcohol and partying can have on his self-control.
