  1. At the very beginning of the play, Iago incites Roderigo to go and tell Desdemona’s father. Iago tries to hide whilst he is doing this, behind Roderigo. This is because he is trying to cause problems for Othello but doesn’t want the trail to come back to him as Othello considers Iago a close friend. He is like a false friend.
