You start out on stage as a mook. Well, as a spearcarrier. Act Five? Got's lots of 'em, I won't lie. I'll keep them shorter from here on out, honest.
As for Mackers... if every line of dialogue after Act Four, Scene One (the one with the witches) is kept, our antihero is offstage for a long, long time and then re-enters here. He's completely gone over to trust in the forces of evil, and wholly cocksure as a result. Hubris is always a clever thing in a play.
Sophrosyne is an excellent counter, but only if used correctly! ;) Ever since finding that word last year I've been looking for a new word! Haven't found much yet, still looking! :D
Hit up the Charites, maybe? I'm a fan of Aglaea, though it's not quite the same as Sophrosyne...
