Transcript of Romeo and Juliet Character Traits

Romeo Juliet Tybalt Lady Capulet Paris Mercutio Benvolio Capulet Nurse Main Character's Traits Friar Mercutio is close to home with the idea of crazy because of rambling on and on and on and on and on about nonsense. This is proven by him and his Queen Mab speech in Act 1 scene 4. Tybalt is aware of how he should behave, but doesn't tend to act like a mannered guy like he is supposed to. He doesn't have manners. In Act 3 scene 1, he encounters with Mercutio and ends up killing him then walking away with disrespect. Capulet is a selfish, greedy, and a powerful man who lives in wealth. This is because in Act 3 scene 5, he exclaims to Juliet how he will disown her for not marrying Paris. He's not thinking of Juliet's feelings, he's only thinking of the money and more wealth he will get from the marriage of both wealthy families. Capulet is an aggressive man when he doesn't get what he wants. In Act 3 scene 5, he calls his daughter, Juliet, worthless and ungrateful which is verbal abuse and aggressive. Mercutio is the king of adianoeta, and he hates people who are obsessed and affected by the newest trends and latest fashions. In Act 2 scene 4, he makes a bunch of sexual adianoetas when talking to Romeo, and he rants about guys who have strange manners and weird accents. Romeo is impulsive and immature. In Act 3 scene 1, he gets angry at Tybalt for killing Mercutio, and before he realizes that he will get banished and may never see Juliet again, he kills Tybalt. Romeo is more interested in love than the fued between both households. Throughout the whole book, his mouths speak of sweet and passionate words but not anger and fighting words. Only when Romeo rages about his bestfriend, Mercutio, dying is when he truly fights. Paris behaves like he is already married to Juliet. In Act 4 scene 1, when he runs into Juliet at the Friar's cell, he acts all happy and stuff like they are already a happily married couple. Paris is eager for Juliet to marry him. In the very beginning where you meet him, Act 1 scene 2, he is persuasive towards Capulet in sealing the marriage. The Nurse has been caring for Juliet since Juliet was born, and has always been like a parent for Juliet. In Act 1 scene 3, Nurse makes a speech about how she breastfed Juliet and cared for her when she falls and hurts herself. Nurse acts sympathetic and sweet towards anyone if she believes that they deserve it. In Act 3 scene 3, she goes to Romeo and helps him see Juliet for the last time even if Romeo was a murderer. She believes he is innocent. Benvolio makes a strong effort in stopping fueds in public places. This is shown in two cases. Act 1 scene 1 where he tries to stop the fight between the servingmen of both households. Also, in Act 3 scene 1 where Romeo and Tybalt fight to the death. Benvolio is a thoughtful friend and really genuine. During Act 1 scene 1, he helps try to cheer up Romeo and be there for him when Rosaline refuses Romeo's love. The Friar is always ready with a plan. In Act 4 scene 1, Friar comes up with a plan for Juliet to be able to escape Paris and be with Romeo. Friar believes that marrying the two, Romeo and Juliet, from seperate households that have an ancient grudge that still stands will make the fighting between the two families stop and bring peace to Verona. In Act 2 scene 6, the Friar marries them but with suspicion. Lady Capulet is ecstatic about Juliet marrying Paris. She believes women are meant to marry at a young age. In Act 1 scene 3, she sort of pushes Juliet at Paris so they can get married sooner. Tybalt is an easily angered person who loathes and despises the Montagues with a passion. In Act 1 scene 5, he draws his sword ready to disperse with Romeo to get him to leave the party. Juliet shows bravery in trusting and dedicating her life and her future to Romeo even though he murdered her cousin. This is shown in Act 4 scene 3 when she starts feeling regret for going along with their plan but instead she risks her life and future just to be with Romeo, her love. Juliet is a naive child. In Act 1 scene 5, she acts little to the thought of marriage and love. Then later in the story, she ends up falling deeply and madly in love with Romeo of the opposing household. Lady Capulet doesn't act like a mother towards Juliet throughout the story. She does have her moments, but usually never really comforts Juliet and relies on the Nurse to do that. This is shown throughout the story, wherever conversation between Lady Capulet, Nurse, and Juliet chat. You can just feel the lack of motherly attributes of Lady Capulet, being caught up in the marriage of Paris and Juliet. The End :D
