Dante History

Calm and mellow on the outside, deeply twisted within

His mother, Eva raised Dante for most of his life, who taught him to love the world and that every being alive had good in them, because Sparda himself proved that. She also taught him that on the other side of the coin that everyone was not without sin and that he must stay strong at all times. This caused Dante to constantly embrace his human heritage and strived to become a great and noble person.

Dante's brother was older then he and was a much darker person. Dante resented Vergil because they looked so much alike, and they were so different anyway. Vergil had always had an interest in demons which scared Dante as a child so he grew up to want to stop Vergil from going against their mothers wishes.

After his mother dissappeared, Dante was crushed emotionally and struggled to recover. When he finnaly did regain hhis happiness he found that the world had been taken by Demons and felt that his father had failed after all. In order to find his mother and take his fathers place to save humanity, Dante invented himself in a cold person who could be as ruthless as demons in order to combat them.


Dante obtained the Rebellion and one of his brother's collected Devil Hearts and began his journey by gathering a team that could hunt down Vergil in order to seek out the truth. He prepared his team by seeking out potential members by narrowing down the most compadable vigilante demon hunters, so they could hunt Vergil outside of the law. He was able to easily recruit a young man by the name of Starrk but he was alone, so in order to stall for time until the others arrived, Dante sealed Starrk within a coffin for three months time until the others would arrive.

Thalia and his third targets younger sibling Haren would arrive and unlock Starrk's cage. Dante lead them in under the ruise of a masked assalliant by augmenting his Devil Trigger using the Devil Heart to create a body of dark armor. Dante tested their abilities and allowed them to defeat him, but before he could reveal himself, he was assaulted by the Order. Dante was able to recover and transported his new team far away, where he announced himself as the Son of Sparda.

After doing so he asks that the three to help him hunt down Vergil, who he only regards as a Devil and not his brother. Haren leaves to pursue his brothers trail while Starrk and Thalia agree to aid Dante, they move to a ruined area to heal up from battle. Once there they meet a young ambitious girl who Dante lies to in order to cover their operation. She believed that they were traveling refugee's led by Dante under the alias of Nero. After fighting off a group of scarecrows Dante realizes she can be trusted and inducts her into their opperation.
