Character Role Analysis

Don John

Don John is the inexplicably villainous bad guy of the play. He has no motivation for being evil – he hasn’t been wronged or anything – he just likes being evil. As he so kindly informs us, he doesn’t care that he’s bad, and has no intention of changing his ways. Don Jon loves any opportunity to cause trouble for others, and explicitly delights in other people’s misery.
