Mercutio. Shakespeare got it right with this one.
A free spirit, with an eloquent tongue, and a sense of loyalty.
Whether you reference the Mercutio from Baz Luhrman’s version of Romeo & Juliet released circa ’96, aptly played by Harold Perrineau. Or Shakespeare’s version directly from his manuscript, you can’t deny the draw he has on the overall story. In my opinion the most important character until his untimely death. One could also make the argument that without his death the two star crossed lovers would never have ended their own lives, so even in death, still the most important character.
Yeah, you could make the argument that with his dying breath he cursed both their houses,
but can you blame the guy?
As far as best friends go he had Romeo’s back and because of that he paid the ultimate price.
That in my book is a solid bro right there. We should all be so lucky.
