Dante is a dhampir in Jun Mochizuki'sThe Case Study of Vanitas. Dante is an insurance broker and jack-of-all-trades working under Vanitas for hire. He had been working alongside Vanitas to track down Thomas Berneux - a curse bearing Vampire that'd murdered nine humans thus far - but the case was put on hold in order to deal with another Curse-Bearer who sought out Vanitas' help, Amelia Ruth. Together Dante and Vanitas boarded La Baleine, where they encountered an unexpected obstacle in the form of Noé; who was determined to keep Amelia safe without knowing the true nature of her affliction. Though the three eventually set aside their differences and heal Amelia, they are confronted by the authorities aboard La Baleine - leading to Vanitas being knocked unconscious and falling from the airship alongside Noé. While Amelia was apprehended, Dante successfully managed to escape and looked into the matter of Thomas Berneux again, devising a way to locate him once and for all, later providing this information to Vanitas once he and Noé had finished meeting with Count Parks Orlok.
