Sebastian (Twelfth Night) Sebastian is a minor character in Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.” He is the twin brother of the leading character, Viola; each mistakenly thinks the other dead in a shipwreck. He is a good and decent man whose main role is to provide a foil for his sister’s adventures in cross-dressing and identity-tweaking (this being Shakespeare, after all).
Sebastian Flyte (Brideshead Revisited) Sebastian is the younger son of Lord and Lady Marchmain in Evelyn Waugh’s 1945 classic, “Brideshead Revisited.” He is an old college chum of Charles Ryder, the narrator, who looks back over the development and history of their friendship in the course of the book. Charming, whimsical and child-like (he carries his teddy bear, Aloysius, around campus with him), Sebastian is ultimately doomed, fleeing from the restrictions of his very religious family, and destroying himself with alcohol, drugs and inappropriate relationships. Nonetheless, he maintains those attractive qualities right up to the end. As his sister describes the monks’ feelings about him in the leper colony in Tunisia where Sebastian eventually lands: "They loved him there. He’s still loved, you see, wherever he goes, whatever condition he’s in. It’s a thing about him he’ll never lose."
