  • Tybalt can be referred to as a Dramatic Foil for Benvolio. Through Tybalt's aggressive attitude, we see the peaceful manner of Benvolio.
  • Mercutio is outgoing and easy-going as well. Romeo is in love and not as outgoing. When Romeo is interacting with Mercutio you easily notice Romeo's seriousness.
  • The nurse is blunt, a mother to Juliet and concerned only with the happiness and safety of the girl. By her motherly love for Juliet, we are made more aware of Romeo's passionate love for her.
