Romeo and Juliet

How do lines 126-134 reinforce Romeo's personality?

It back to Tybalt, whose dexterity, Retorts it. Romeo, he cries aloud, “Hold, friends! Friends, part!” and, swifter than his tongue, His agile arm beats down their fatal points, And ’twixt them rushes—underneath whose arm An envious thrust from Tybalt hit the life Of stout Mercutio, and then Tybalt fled.

Romeo is not a violent boy. Despite Tybalt despising him, Romeo really wants Tybalt to like him. Romeo points out that they are actually family now. At the same time he loves his friend Mercutio: It makes sense that Romeo wants them to stop fighting.
