Fulvia  She does not appear in the play, but she is Antony's first wife. Taurus  As lieutenant General to Caesar, his strategies help Caesar to win the war against the forces  of Antony and Cleopatra. Maecenas  An officer and a friend of Caesar; when the triumvirs meet at the house of Lepidus in  Rome to effect a truce, Maecenas is present. Agrippa  Another friend of Caesar; along with Maecenas, he never judges Antony quite as lightly as  does his general. Proculeius  This friend of Caesar acts as a messenger and tells Cleopatra on behalf of Caesar that  she need not be afraid for her welfare. Dolabella  Unlike Proculeius, Dolabella feels pity for Cleopatra and warns her that Caesar's promises  to her may be empty ones. Thyreus  He also acts as a messenger, telling Cleopatra of Antony's defeat and Octavius's victory. Charmian  She is one of Cleopatra's closest friends and court confidantes.
