Julius Caesar, in spite of the title, does not have a central hero. The characters are being sketched in a rudimentary way, with the exception of Brutus, an integrant and meditative man who fails to accomplish his visions for a fair and logical organization of the world. The tragedy is in fact the portrait of Brutus and the main event of the drama is the assassination of Julius Caesar, Brutus, a friend of Caesar and defender of democracy trace his own route from the moment he gets convinced from Cassius that democracy is in danger till his final defeat by Antony. While Brutus and Cassius believed that they would dissuade Julius Caesar from his intention to become a monarch, they essentially succeded the real abolition of democracy in the face of Octavius August. As in the other plays of Shakespeare also, recycling of the crime for the acquisition of power will close the tragedy.
