Tybalt, the cousin of Juliet, has a quick temper and frequently acts on impulse. When he first appears, he arrives at the brink of a street fight, and when Benvolio tries to calm him down he gets riled up and says, “What, drawn and talk of peace? I hate the word/ As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee./ Have at thee, coward!” (1:1, 71-73) When Prince Escalus arrives to see this fight, he raises the consequences on the warring families. He will no longer stand by without doing something and threatens, “If ever you disturb our streets again,/ Your lives shall pay the the forfeit of the peace” (1:1, 98-99). The stakes of the family feud have been taken to a new level, whereas before the Prince was just mad but didn’t act on that anger, now the families are threatened with death if they act out again, all because Tybalt and some Capulet servants jumped into a fight.

During the first quarrel between the Montagues and the Capulets in the play, Benvolio tries to bring peace by saying " I do but keep the peace. Put up thy sword, / Or manage it to part these men with me " ( , , 62-63). It is apparent that Benvolio has good intentions and that he
| The complete opposite of Romeo, who doesn’t consider the feud anything to do with him personally, Tybalt takes it more personally than the head of the family himself and considers “enduring” Romeos presence humiliating and a scorn against his name. He takes the matter of pride seriously.
“‘What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?/ Turn thee, Benvolio. Look upon thy death’” (Romeo and Juliet.1.1.56-57).

Tybalt’s loyalty to his family is very significant to him, because even though he does it for the wrong reasons, it is with good intention as he is honoring his family’s name. For example at the Capulet’s ball, he is protecting his family’s reputation because he thinks Romeo is trying to cause harm to the Capulet name.
He acts as protector and "chief swash-buckler" for the Capulets and he appears to feel that the Montagues represent a great threat to the Capulets.
