In the play Romeo and Juliet, The cousin of Juliet, Tybalt Capulet expresses traits of aggression and disliking toward Romeo and the other Montagues. One of the central traits expressed throughout the play was aggression and the lack of remorse in Tybalt’s personality. In the Tybalt - Mercutio fight scene these personality traits are illustrated when Tybalt kills Mercutio. He shows very little remorse and leaves after he realizes that he stabbed him. He also provokes violence and shows his aggression during the scene when he turns to fight Romeo after he finds out that Mercutio has died. “Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here Shalt with him hence” (1.3.126-128). This is evidence of how unaffected Tybalt is after killing Mercutio and how Tybalt shows no sorrow for what he has done and proceeds to fight Romeo in an attempt to kill him also without regret. This results in him being stabbed and Romeo being banished.
