Tybalt aiming his weapon.
Yesterday we were able to interview Tybalt Capulet after the party held by the Capulet family, though unfortunately he have passed away recently by Romeo killing him. Tybalt was a kinsman and a member of the extremely feared Capulet family in Verona. This man Tybalt is well known for his vicious, tempered, fanatic attitude, which came with his nickname “Prince of Cats” and commonly being spotted at the fair streets of Verona slaying his worst enemies the “Montagues”. Tybalt could be the sole reason why the Capulet family is known for their excessive acts of violence. We were very excited and thrilled about his impressions, hatred toward the Montagues and the feelings he had in his name.
How do you feel when slaying a Montague?:
I always feel pride and honour in my doing especially slaying a Montague, I also find it entertaining since I am fond to violence. Montagues are my sworn enemies, and villains to my family. I don’t and shall not feel sympathy, nor remorse, there are no empty spaces in my soul for those that disgrace and defile the name of the Capulet.
Would you describe yourself as a brute?:
Yes, and I take it with honour. Without being a brute I am nothing, and the Capulet family needs men like me. If not our name shall have been tarnished long ago and would be humiliated by the Montagues.
Who is the Montague that you hate the most?:
The Montague himself obviously, he is the sole reason why I fight for my uncle the Capulet. He is the one that especially despises the name of Capulet. Despises the name, he also despises me too.
What were your initial thoughts seeing Romeo your “sworn enemy” at the party?:
Hatred, and humiliation. That villain son of Montague was scorning our party that should show pride and power. Yet that damn boy have penetrated and foiled our pride, and nobody including my uncle care. So I nearly attempted to slay him.
Do you despise Benvolio’s pacifism?:
Absolutely, I hate the word peace. Peace only scorn the pride in me. If Benvolio wants to achieve peace then he shall either take me down or be slain from my rapier and sent to hell where all Montague belongs.
Do you think the Montague and the Capulet family could live side by side in Verona?:
Never, there shall not be a future of Montague and Capulet shoulder to shoulder. This idea denies my past actions towards the Montagues, in addition makes my service and others commitment to the family in vein.
We heard that Count Paris wants Juliet’s as his wife what about your thoughts?:
I never met Count Paris in person, however he does seem to be a man with manly pride and I admit with a charm that will attract woman. In short I think he is best suited to Juliet’s future husband. Since Juliet is the daughter of my uncle that I serve, I only wish her full of happiness.
What do you think about Juliet’s thoughts between the tension of Montague and Capulet?:
Surprisingly we both barely talk to each other, because I am mostly onto the streets. She seems to be neutral about my actions, which is fine. Since I had memories playing with her when we were little, and I see that she sometimes has her own world.
How do you wish to die?:
I do not wish to die, since I am willing to protect my name. Though if it is fate than I shall take my enemies especially a Montague with me through hell.
