In every story there’s that one character you love, the one character you hate and the one guy in the back you often forget is even there. Although, sometimes we don’t think about who actually causes conflict. William Shakespeare's, “Romeo and Juliet” seems fairly predictable just like most dramatic plays.

If he hadn’t killed Tybalt he might have a chance at staying with Juliet in Verona and ending the rial between their two families without death. Although, Romeo is the one character most of us love and adore and maybe Tybalt was the one character we forget about, maybe Romeo was the cause of all the tragic
