Romeo and Juliet Characteristics Act 1

Tybalt A Capulet, Juliet’s cousin on her mother’s side. Vain, fashionable, supremely aware of courtesy and the lack of it, he becomes aggressive, violent, and quick to draw his sword when he feels his pride has been injured. Once drawn, his sword is something to be feared. He loathes Montagues.
Lady Capulet Juliet’s mother, Capulet’s wife. A woman who herself married young (by her own estimation she gave birth to Juliet at close to the age of fourteen), she is eager to see her daughter marry Paris. She is an ineffectual mother, relying on the Nurse for moral and pragmatic support.
Lord Capulet Juliet’ father, The patriarch of the Capulet family, , husband of Lady Capulet, and enemy, for unexplained reasons, of Montague.
Lady Montague Romeo’s mother, Montague’s wife.
Lord Montague Romeo’s father, the patriarch of the Montague clan and bitter enemy of Capulet. At the beginning of the play, he is chiefly concerned about Romeo’s melancholy.
Romeo Montague, loves Juliet, Son of lord and lady Montague
Juliet Capulet’s daughter, loves Romeo, was nursed by the nurse instead of her mother
Mercutio A kinsman to the Prince, and Romeo’s close friend. Mercutio overflows with imagination, wit, and, at times, and brooding fervor. Mercutio loves wordplay, and he can be quite hotheaded.
Benvolio Montague’s nephew, Romeo’s cousin and thoughtful friend, he makes a genuine effort to defuse violent scenes in public places, though Mercutio accuses him of having a nasty temper in private.
Prince Escalus The Prince of Verona. A kinsman of Mercutio (Romeo’s best friend) and Paris. He is concerned about maintaining the public peace at all costs
