Iago’s motivations to destroy Othello, Cassio, and Roderigo is revenge based. He is jealous of their military rank because the Moor overlooked him on position for Lieutenant. His motto for life is we choose our own fate. Roderigo is handled differently because Iago appeals to his desire of Desdemona and manipulates him into thinking he will end up with her. With Othello and Cassio, Iago gets Cassio drunk and into trouble with his boss which happens to be Othello by getting into a fight with Roderigo. Which leads to Desdemona intervening and making Othello jealous. Iago only does this to get revenge.

The technique Iago uses is deception. With him manipulating Othello into thinking Cassio is having an affair with Desdemona, and making Cassio believe, while he is drunk, that Desdemona will take his side in defending him over Othello. It makes each party get mad at the other by having a woman they all share feeling for take the side of another. Roderigo does not take much effort from Iago to convince him if he does things he will get Desdemona.

Throughout the entire play she remains loyal to her husband despite the accusations of being unlawful against her.
