|Manga Debut||Memoire 1: Vanitas|
Dante is a young man of muscular stature with short, messy, light brown hair and bright red eyes inherited from his Vampire parent. A small beauty mark situated on his left cheek also embellishes Dante's eyes. While working as an information broker, Dante wears a black suit decorated with a cross-stitch pattern, ornate golden buttons, and sleeves ending in different material -- a seemingly universal uniform among information brokers. Underneath, he sports a dark-colored vest speckled with small white polka dots, a white undershirt, a tie, and a matching pocket square.
Dante tends to be rather carefree when dealing with Vanitas - though he is easily annoyed by his employer and partner - particularly when Vanitas addresses him as "Baldy." The two often take jabs at each other playfully, though in reality they enjoy each other's company. In relation to Riche, however, Dante takes on a much more serious, parent-like role. While he is willing to accept her attempts at distancing herself from a childlike perception, Dante also often condemns Riche when she adopts more reckless behaviors, showing that he is very protective of those closest to him by nature.
Parisian Excursion Arc Edit
Dante later reunited with Vanitas outside of the Galerie Vivienne where he sold Vanitas and Noé information about the "Nine-Fold Murderer," Thomas Berneux, telling the two to follow one of his bats to a friend who was tailing the murderer. Afterwards, another of Dante's colleagues, Johann, arrived with news that Lord Ruthven's bourreau had entered Paris. When Johann learned that the friend following Berneaux was Riche, he reprimanded Dante for putting her in harms way, and the pair set off to find her. After doing so, the three observed the battle between the bourreau, Noé, and Vanitas, viewing Vanitas's threats toward Jeanne with distaste.

Powers and Abilities Edit

Dante works for Vanitas on a contractual basis and also acts as his information broker, obtaining rare information and charging exorbitant prices for it. He refuses to do work for Vanitas that does not involve payment. They communicate with each other in a disrespectful manner, and each refer to the other with an insulting nickname; Dante refers to Vanitas as a "quack" rather than a doctor, while Vanitas calls Dante "Baldy" as a form of curse.
