Mercutio Monty is the eldest son of the late Claudio Monty, who was himself the eldest son of Patrizio Monty, and the current nominal head of the Monty crime family. He will become the active leader of the family when he comes of age. He lives in Veronaville with his grandmother Isabella and younger brother Romeo.
Humor has always been Mercutio's defining characteristic, so it's no surprise that he's used it to cope with everything bad that has happened in his life, particularly deaths in the family. He has been enjoying dark humor more and more ever since the death of his grandfather and the realization that he's going to have to enter the family business that claimed his father's life.
Despite his responsibilities to the Monty family, Mercutio used to date Miranda Capp. However, they broke up after the current leadership of the Monty crime family targeted her mother. Mercutio did his best to salvage the situation, but Miranda refused to give him a second chance, and the rejection has left Mercutio feeling a bit raw.
Mercutio has been involved in several physical fights with his Capp archenemy Tybalt. So far, none of these has gone well for Mercutio.
