-Romeo and Juliet-


Benvolio is Lord Montague’s nephew and Romeo’s cousin. Benvolio serves as an unsuccessful peacemaker in the play, attempting to prevent violence between the Capulet and Montague families throughout. He makes a genuine effort to defuse all violent scenes in public places, however, Mercutio accuses him of having a nasty temper in private. 

He spends the majority of the play trying to help Romeo get his mind off Rosaline, even after Romeo has fallen in love with Juliet.
