He chose to tell the whole truth, knowing that there would be consequences taken against his cousin. This shows true courage and commitment to his cause for peace.

Benvolio is one of the few characters who sticks to his moral values throughout the whole play.
Horatio’s next purpose is to give us insight into the mind of Hamlet, being his one true friend to whom he shares his most intimate thoughts. These two key roles not only reveal the reality of the play, but more importantly they reveal the character of Hamlet and how he perceives this reality. This friendship, with its constant use of foiling, serves as arguably the most important relationship in the entire play. From the very beginning of the play, Horatio is identified as the objective and critical voice of the play. We see this when the two guards, Marcellus and Bernardo, call Horatio in order to validate the ghost and even to question its true purpose.

Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous pieces written by William Shakespeare, which it’s theme is based on fate and foolishness.

Some stories will line up perfectly and those who tell them are truthful. This proves that everything heard through the ear can not always be trusted as if it was seen through someone's own two eyes: seeing is believing. Shakespeare uses this for the basis of Hamlet. Some characters are only believing the information they are receiving through their ears, but characters who are actually around Hamlet know the truth. The main characters that believe Hamlet, are his true friends and those opposed are only thinking about what Hamlet’s enemy is saying.
As the knowledgeable adult in the situation, what he needed to do was to guide Juliet to safer alternatives, perhaps discussing with Capulet. Instead, he offered her this carelessly created plan.

Claudio gets Hero in the end, but he doesn’t instantly get his happy ending. Instead, he has to suffer, believing Hero is dead. This serves as Shakespeare’s warning sign about a concern with image rather than what comes from within.
