What are they like?

Mercutio is a quick witted and clever minded character. He is called a scene stealer and one of Shakespeare's most memorable characters. Even tough he jokes around and teases he is not just a prankster or joker because he opens up the romance in blind self-love.

What do they look like?

Mercutio is a blonde and is skinny, but I'm not that sure.

What happens to them?

Mercutio is in Acts 1 and 2 but he ends up being killed by Tybalt, Juliet's cousin, in Act 3 Scene 1.

What family are they a part of?

Mercutio isn't a part of either of the feuding family's but he sides with the Montagues and adds in with the feuding.

Who are their family members

I have no clue who Mercutio's family members are because he is not a part of the Montagues or the Capulets and his family members aren't mentioned.

Interesting Facts

Mercutio is dirty, funny, out of control, and compared to him, Romeo and Juliet can seem whiny and repetitive. Shakespeare himself admitted that he had to kill Mercutio or else Mercutio would have killed him because he would have taken over the play.
