Romeo Candore Van di Montague

See the Main Characters section.

Lord Laertes Montague
Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (JP), Sean Hennigan (EN)

Romeo's father, and the man who rules Neo Verona with an iron fist. He was the one who murdered Juliet's parents fourteen years ago, starting off the story.

  • Archnemesis Dad: To Romeo, Tybalt, and eventually, soon after he adopts him, Mercutio.
  • Ax-Crazy: Even at the best of times, he can barely hide the fact that he's rather psychopathic, stripping Benvolio's father of all of his titles because he dissented against him. After the Capulet rebellion, he goes off the deep end completely, killing two of the members of the council because the rest wouldn't support his proposal to BURN DOWN THE COMMON PEOPLE'S QUARTERS
  • Bastard Bastard: He's an illegitimate child of a Capulet man and a prostitute, and swore revenge against his father's family after his mother died.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Big Bad: Him taking the Capulet's throne is the cause of everything bad that happens in the story, from the massacre of the Capulet family to the decaying state of Escalus.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies in Romeo's and Juliet's arms.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Serves as the Big Bad for most of the series, but Ophelia becomes the final enemy as she wants to sacrifice Juliet to Escalus, since the Montague family taking the throne is causing it to die.
  • Freudian Excuse: His hatred against the Capulets was because his father was one and abandoned him and his prostitute mother to a poor life. After his mother died from sickness, Laertes swore revenge against his father and his family for not taking care of them by killing all of them. Yikes!
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: From the son of a poor prostitute woman to the one who would kill the Capulet family and take the throne from them.
  • In the Blood: His entire motivation was a Capulet man using his mother and tossing her aside, condemning him and her to a life of poverty. Yet this was exactly what he did to his original lover and his illegitimate son, Tybalt.
  • Kill It with Fire: his proposed solution to the Capulet rebellion. Notably, only Mercutio actually supports him in this until he pulls out his sword and kills two members of the council right in the middle of the chamber
  • Man of Wealth and Taste
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Rags to Royalty: From the poor son of a prostitute to the ruler of Neo Verona.
  • Self-Made Man: Originally, he was the son of a poor prostitute woman. After his mother died, he made his way on his own to become the head of the Montague family and the king of Neo Verona.
  • Social Climber: After his mother died, he decided to become a noble. To achieve this, he had Montague family adopt him, poisoned his benefactor's food and became head of the family. He then killed the Capulets to become king.
  • Son of a Whore: The illegitimate child of a Capulet man and a prostitute.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm
  • Villainous Breakdown
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: To Romeo, to the point that he exiles him to the mines and tries to make Mercutio his heir. It backfires.
  • Wicked Cultured
