Romeo Juliet Prince Lady Montague Lord Montague Lord Capulet Lady Capulet Friar Lawrence Friar John Mercutio Tybalt Apothecary Paris Benvolio Nurse Lord Montague has never gotten along with... Lord Capulet is Juliet's father. He is also married to Lady Capulet. Lord Capulet arranges a marriage of Juliet and Paris without Juliet's consent. When Juliet refused this marriage, he threatened to disown her. Lord Capulet and Lord Montague have always hated each other. ...Lord Capulet. Lord Montague is Romeo's father and is married to Lady Montague. He cares about his son Romeo very much but sometimes worries about him. "Could we but learn from whence his [Romeo's] sorrows grow,
We would as willingly give cure as know.
-Act I, Scene i, Lines 151 & 152 Fued Lady Montague is Romeo's mother and Lord Capulet's wife. She cares about Romeo. "O, where is Romeo? Saw you him today?
Right glad I am he was not at this fray."
-Act I, Scene i, Lines 113 & 114 Married Marriage "Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient Wretch!
I tell thee what--get thee to church a' Thursday
Or never after look me in the face."
-Act III, Scene v, Lines 161-163 Lady Capulet acts neglectfully and coldly toward Juliet. The nurse mostly raised Juliet rather than her own mother. She also ignores Juliet when Juliet begs to not have to marry Paris. She wants revenge for Tybalt's death. "Well, girl, thou weep'st not so much for his death
As that the villain lives which slaughtered him."
-Act III, Scene v, Lines 79 & 80 The prince does not like the fued between the Montagues and the Capulets. Eventually, he says that anyone of them who fights again will be exiled. When Romeo kills Tylbalt, he banishes Romeo. Arranged marriage to Juliet Arranged to be married Secretly Married Know of Romeo & Juliet's Marriage Marries Juliet to Romeo Marries Romeo to Juliet Mercutio is kiled by Tybalt Mother-like Banished by Prince Juliet's Father Juliet's Mother Juliet's Cousin Romeo's Cousin Romeo's Best Friend Aquaintances Romeo's Mother Romeo's Father Paris is a man man in his thirties who has been arranged to be married to Juliet by himself and Lord Capulet. He and Juliet do not spend very much time together, but he still cares about her. "O, I am slain! If thou be merciful,
Open the tomb, lay me with Juliet."
-Act V, Scene iii, Lines 72 & 73 Relatives Tybalt is killed by Romeo Friends Miscommunucation Friar John in a friend of Friar Lawrence. Friar Lawrence had asked Friar John to be the messenger and tell Romeo that Juliet's death was fake. Friar John was unable to go and tell Romeo due to fear of plague, causing Romeo to believe Juliet's death was real. These events are what caused Romeo to kill himself. "I could not send it--here it is again--
Nor get a messenger to bring it to thee,
So fearful were they of infection."
-Act V, Scene ii, Lines 14-16 Friar Lawrence is one of the few people who know about Romeo and Juliet's secret marriage. He marries them and tries his best to keep their marriage together when Romeo is banished and Juliet is arranged to marry Paris. He comes up with plans for them, and while they do not work due to unfortunate events, he always has their best interests in mind. "Therefore use none. Let Romeo hence in haste,
Else, when he is found, that hour is his last."
-Act III, Scene i, Lines 191 & 192 The Nurse is Juliet's servant. She cares for Juliet like Juliet is her own daughter. She is one of the few individuals who knows about Romeo and Juliet's secret marriage. When Romeo and Juliet first meet the Nurse plays the role of the messenger in their relationship because they are unable to meet in public due to the fact that their families hate each other. "Hie to your chamber. I'll find Romeo
To comfort you. I wot weel where he is.
Hark ye, your Romeo will be here at night."
-Act III, Scene ii, Lines 138-140 "For this alliance may so happy prove
To turn your households' rancor to pure love."
-Act II, Scene iii, Lines 91 & 92 Benvolio is Romeo's cousin and friend. He is a very peaceful person and tries to make peace between the Montauges and Capulets when they are about to fight. "I do but keep the peace. Put up thy sword,
Or manage it to part these men with me."
-Act I. Scene i, Lines 65 & 66 The Apthecary sells Romeo the poison that he later uses to kill himself. He is resistant to give Romeo the poison because Mantua's law states that he can be killed for giving it away. "Such mortal drugs I have; but Mantua's law
Is death to any he that utters them."
-Act V, Scene i, Lines 66 & 67 Mercutio is Romeo's best friend. He is also a relative to the prince. He is killed by Tybalt. He teases Tybalt before they fight, so he is almost just as much at fault as Tybalt is for his death. "O calam, dishonorable, vile submission!
Alla Stoccata carries it away."
-Act III, Scene i, Lines 71 & 72 Tybalt is Juliet's cousin. He is a hot-head and hates the Montagues with a passion. He is an aggressive individual. Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo's best friend, and Romeo is so upset by this that he kills Tybalt without really thinking about what he is doing. "What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.
Have at thee, coward!"
-Act I, Scene i, Lines 67-69 Romeo is a boy who does not really know what love is, so he falls in and out of love easily. First, he claims that he is deeply in love with Rosaline, and then he claims he is in love with Juliet, completely forgetting about Rosaline. He is also very dramatic and sensitive. He confesses his love to Juliet and does not really think about the reality of their relationship. He does not think about his actions before he does them. For example, when he hears about Juliet's death, he immediately buys poison he can be with her again. "It is my soul that calls upon my name.
How silver-sweet sound lovers' tongues by night,
Like softest music to attending ears!"
-Act II, Scene ii, Lines165-167 Juliet is independent. She is immature because she is only thirteen years old. She does not want to marry Paris. She is rebellious through her desire to marry Romeo because their families are enemies. However, she is less love-struck than Romeo and more realistic. She takes into account that their families do not get along when thinking about her relationship with Romeo. However, she does not let this ruin their relationship. "What's a Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face. O, be some other name
Belonging to a man."
-Act II, Scene ii, Lines 40-42
