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?


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


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.


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.


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


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