Yes, Aaron, it's true. Pharaoh has the power. He can take away your food, your home, your freedom. He can take away your sons and daughters. With one word: Pharaoh can take away your very lives. But there is one thing he cannot take away from you: Your faith. Believe. For we will see God's wonders.
~ Moses encouraging the Hebrews to believe.
Goodbye brother...
~ Moses' last words to his adoptive brother, Rameses.

Moses is the titular main protagonist of DreamWorks' 2nd full-length animated feature film The Prince of Egypt, a retelling of the Biblical Book of Exodus and it's musical. He is the second son and youngest child of Yocheved, the younger brother of Aaron and Miriam, the adoptive son of Pharaoh Seti and Queen Tuya, the adoptive younger brother of Rameses, the husband of Tzipporah and the son-in-law of Jethro.

He was voiced by Val Kilmer.

What Makes Him Pure Good?

  • Even when he did not yet know he was a Hebrew he had good deeds:
    • Although he is spoiled, arrogant and bratty in chasing his adoptive brother Ramses into trouble through the fury of his father Seti I, he tries to reassure his father that he is responsible for his mistakes and tries to cheer up his brother.
    • He quickly regretted humiliating Tzipporah at the party after doing so, and seeing his disappointed adoptive mother.
    • After he sees Tzipporah trying to escape from Egypt, he distracts her sentries to allow her to escape.
  • He begins to have feelings for the Hebrews after discovering that he is one of them.
  • He killed an Egyptian guard, but unwittingly and only because he was trying to help an old Hebrew who couldn't take it anymore and he felt guilt and remorse for the accidental murder.
  • He refused to give away the ring of chief builder of the pyramids when he flees into the desert.
  • He quickly comes to the rescue of Tzipporah's younger sisters when they are targeted by bullies, even though he still doesn't know who they are.
  • When he returns to Egypt he tries in every way to persuade Rameses to free the Hebrews, but without success.
  • He was just as caring towards the Egyptians as he was for the Hebrews as shown when he was saddened by the events of the Ten Plagues, and the harm they brought upon Egypt.
  • Tries to comfort his brother when his son dies from the 10th plague.
  • After finally freeing the people from the law, he hears Rameses screaming from the other side of the sea, and with sadness in his heart he says "Goodbye brother...".
