At the start, he gives the impression of a caring, considerate and loving father while discussing marriage with Paris; as well as a man of peace excusing the uninvited guest, Romeo.
Confronted by the true death of Juliet, he let go of his foul ways and ended their family rivalry. There is no worse feeling than when a loved one turns on another family member, nonetheless a child who had been taught right from wrong.
He went through a ride of emotions in the development, from love and respect to anger and disrespect ending in sadness and shame. From his character we learn he is very excited and very happy and pleased for his daughter.

Romeo and Juliet die by drinking a potion. He is obviously not accustomed to, or willing to accept, his orders being questioned or disobeyed, but his harsh words towards Juliet, although grossly unfair, were spoken in the heat of temper, as he clearly cares for her deeply.
