In the text people view viola as someone loyal. Because she is always around to help Duke Orsino. she worked for him for many weeks. She only disguised her self as a boy, because she needed work. It is hard to find work as a woman. but she sees her self as a strong-willed, smart young lady. "Stand you a while aloof. Cesario thou know'st no less but all. I have unclasped to thee the book even my secret soul" (1.IV.11-13) This proves that viola is loyal because the Duke is able to trust her. Duke trust her with all of his secrets.
