Beatrice describes Claudio's courtship of Hero as empty, calling him "Count Comfect." He is not reliable and forsakes her when things get tough.

Beatrice christens Claudio with this name, sarcastically contrasting him with the sweet little groom on the wedding cake. A pleasant exterior, but nothing to back it up.
