Julius Caesar had an affair with Brutus' mother, Servilia. It is possible that Caesar was Brutus' father, but that is disputed by historians.

Is the relationship between Brutus and Cassius based on convenience or actual friendship?

In the beginning of the play, Brutus is trusted by Caesar, and they have a filial sort of relationship. But Brutus plays a large role in Caesar's assassination. Caesar's dying words are, "Et tu, Brute?" (you too, Brutus?) because he can hardly believe that someone he loved and was close to would murder him. Brutus reasons, "Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more." He thinks that killing Caesar was for the greater good, and if you've read the play, you would realize that Brutus's fatal flaw is his nobility. He overthinks everything, always searching for the noble, honorable, "right" thing to do. It was also mentioned that perhaps Brutus was truly Caesar's son, of an affair. At Brutus's funeral oration, Antony says Brutus was "Caesar's angel," although it is never blatantly explained why Caesar trusts and loves Brutus so much, then is betrayed. Although Brutus's honor to Caesar is strong in the beginning, it wavers enough for him to take part in Caesar's murder, but then he sees the effects because of it. By the end of the play, Brutus sees that Rome in the hands of Antony, Octavius, etc is worse than it would have been under Caesar's ruling, and Brutus commits suicide. Note that this question does not have anything to do with the question. The question entails the relationship between BRUTUS and CASSIUS, while this answer is telling the relationship between Brutus and Caeser.
