Crosspedia Entry[]

Dante's twin older brother and, like him, a demon-human hybrid. Having witnessed his mother's murder at the hands of a demon and experienced the bitter torment of powerlessness, he now dedicates himself exclusively to the pursuit of pure power. Cold and inhumane, he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

In his search for power, he climbed to the top of Temen-ni-gru and unsealed the door to the Demon World. There he fought many times against Dante, who seeks to destroy all demons. Since he was chosen to live as a demon, he eschews mortal weapons and refuses to use human-made guns.

A master of the art of iaido, his sword skills are greater than Dante's and in one instant, he can close with his foe and unleash lethal damage.
