known as the Weyard 'Weird' sisters (Fate or Destiny)
You are crafty, mystical and love the night. Sticking close to your best allies, you love to meddle. Tread not too far into the dark, for you are prone to seek power no matter the cost. Let your influence be for good and you will find much harmony in your life.
(Their prophesies will lead Macbeth to murder Duncan and others who stand in his pathway to the crown.)
Scottish general, Thane of Glamis, later Thane of Cawdor and later King of Scotland.
You are powerful, committed to your cause, but can be ruled by your emotion. People call you brave, fearless even; and you see nothing as insurmountable. Your bold streak must be tempered with care, and beware the advice of others who seek to steer you wrong.
(The protagonist and tragic hero. A brave and powerful soldier whose ambition leads him to commit murders to secure the throne.)
You have the calming and healing touch in a world that can be so cold. You bring stability to a world gone mad, but lack the mean streak to compete with the evil forces surrounding you.
(Her domestic life is a stark contrast to Lady Macbeth's cold and hellish existence. Her murder is the catalyst for Macduff's revenge.)
King of Scotland
You are a natural born leader. Unwavering in the face of danger, you would risk it all for your kin and country. People instantly like you and your kind words are remembered long after you have left the room. Beware the smile of those who seek your power and favour. Not all that shake your hand do so in friendship, they are merely testing your grip.
(He is the antagonist in the play. He is well-liked and quick to reward honour and the loyalty of his subjects. He is also blind to the threat of Macbeth's treachery.)
Drunkard at Macbeth's castle
People find you hilarious; you are the life of the party. The laughs flow when you are near, though take care, they are laughing with you, not at you. The pleasures of life are what you seek and merriment feels oh so natural. Remember though, there is a time for work and a time for play and an unbalanced life may lead you astray.
(The drunken porter at the castle provides comic relief.)
You are loyal and kind among your inner circle, but when things go poorly for your friends and loved ones you become a sinister force! Curb your lust for power and focus on your home life lest you be driven to the brink seeking the power you so crave.
(An ambitious woman seeking power and position who encourages Macbeth to seize the throne.)
Scottish general and thane
You are a noble soul, tempered and secure in your words and actions. The strong silent type, you prefer to remain steadfast than launch yourself into the politics of true power. You believe you're being guided by forces larger than yourself, so stay the course and life will deliver its offerings to you and your kin.
(A brave and noble soldier who has ambitious thoughts but does not translate them into action and whose children, according to the witches, will inherit the throne.)
A haunting story of ambition and its dark consequences unfolds in eleventh-century Scotland, as a military hero and his wife conspire to seize the throne.
Macbeth has been considered unlucky since its very first production - perhaps because the text supposedly contains an actual witches' incantation: the famous "Double, double, toil and trouble: Fire burn, and cauldron bubble." The play is notorious for the superstitions surrounding it.
