Brutus is discussing Cassius' death with the rest of his army and doesn't want to give him a funeral there in fear that it may discourage the men in their battle. However, he mentions a few of the soldier's names, one being Flavius.

What is the irony behind Flavius being one of Brutus' men?

A

Flavius was an adamant supporter of Caesar. It makes no sense that he is fighting with the conspirators who killed him.

B

Flavius was seen in the first act and was completely against Caesar; it's only right for him to be fighting with Brutus since he, too, despised Caesar.

C

Flavius, a Roman soldier, preferred Pompey over Caesar. It was evident through his actions in Act 1 that he despised Caesar and wanted him out of office because of the harm he was doing to Rome.

D

Flavius would have been better suited under Cassius' order since they both shared an intense hatred for Caesar rather than concern for Rome.

E

There is no irony in Flavius serving under Brutus' order.
