Antonio is the younger brother of Prospero He is an evil man with an ego so big that he wants to take total control of Milan away from his brother At the time Prospero was the Duke However Prospero was so tied up with his books and his magic that he gave almost his power to Antonio At first Antonio was very conservative with this power But as time went on he began to abuse this power and eventually Antonio teamed up with the King of Naples and threw Prospero off the throne Antonio is obviously a very influential person who seeks for power and control He is also a very humorous character in this scene When he is teamed up with Sebastian they most likely created a whole stadium of cheers back in the Elizabethan times In the beginning of this scene Antonio deals with his fellow royal mates with disrespect such as that implied by his interactions with Gonzalo He suggests a bet over which of Gonzalo or Adrian will laugh first as well as many other puns targeted toward Gonzalo In this scene Antonio clearly becomes the antagonist of the story and he makes himself very offensive to others except for Sebastian As the scene goes on Antonio and Sebastian were left alone as Ariel put all other characters to sleep This was the perfect opportunity for Antonio to unleash his plan of killing the king and putting Sebastian on the throne Since Antonio himself has already had this experience already with his brother he didnt require much thought All he needed to do was convince Sebastian to make the move Antonio didnt really have a motive of doing this but one probable explanation would be that he wanted to restore freedom of Milan by making Sebastian king of Naples Sebastian had no thought of such a happening and this clearly tells the readers how Antonio is so well planned and organized
