Characters

Mercutio: Mercutio is allied with the Montagues/Romeo. He is about he same age as Romeo, and makes a lot of jokes and challenges his "enemies". Mercutio is a static and round character.

Balthasar: He's neutral, but he inadvertently helps Romeo/ the Montagues. He is very helpful, as well as "holy", considering he's a friar. He's static, as well as flat.

Friar Laurence: Larry is neutral, but is strongly leaning toward Romeo/ the Montagues. He is old, and he wants to help people, but also wants to keep his neutral status so he can help everyone. Friar Laurence is a dynamic character because he changes his mind very early in the play about Romeo and Juliet, and he's a round character.

Lady Capulet: is allied with the Capulets (obviously, because she is a Capulet), and also Juliet's mother. She's kind of rude, and I'd say Juliet's happiness is not of absolute, utmost importance to her. She is a dynamic character because she stops hating the Montagues after Romeo and Juliet die, and she is flat.

Peter: Peter is allied with the Capulets; He's the nurse's companion when she goes to talk to Romeo. He does what he's told and he follows directions. He is a static and a flat character.
