Don John often proclaims that he is unhappy, unfortunate, and so on. Much of this has to do with the fact that he is illegitimate. Though he has been born into a noble family (he is Don Pedro's brother), he will never fully be accepted as a member of that society. Therefore, he wants to upset the social order: presumably so that the others will feel the same kind of exile he himself experiences on a daily basis.
