My headcanons for Dante. (Note: I only take the games and the anime as canon with bits and pieces from other sources added. Don’t expect this stuff to work well with novels/comics/Bayonetta/etc.)
- After Eva’s death, Dante was taken in by a demon hunter. He left to continue living and working on his own only when a spike in demonic activity - thank you, Vergil! - forced him to leave for the sake of his mentor’s safety.
- That guy is supposed to be Dante’s gramps on Eva’s side, by the way, so demon hunting is family business. Having Eva’s dad as his guardian would also explain Dante’s odd hate-slash-acceptance of his heritage on his dad’s side.
- I think, the nickname ‘Kid’ that Nero got from Dante now got a more complex meaning behind it.
- Unrelated, but… Dante loves pizza, but it’s more of a special treat than his default diet choice.
Did this comic partly to see how long one page would take - it’s a one-pager, don’t expect any continuation - partly to give an image to my headcanons. The old man’s face is kept hidden thanks to insecurities coming from the Net Mary-Sue debate.
(Note to self: Never, ever, ever try to write Dante.)
