My place is here, in Hell, and yours is in Paradise. I am truly sorry for what I have done. May you one day forgive me.
— Dante Alighieri to Beatrice

Dante Alighieri is the protagonist of the video game Dante's Inferno. He is a sinful Florentine crusader who travels through Hell to save his fiancée's soul. He is loosely based on the historical poet of the same name.

Before leaving to fight in the Third Crusade with the Knights Templar, Dante swore to be faithful to his fiancée, Beatrice. In the Holy Land, Dante committed numerous sins; worst of all was his slaughter of a host of Saracen prisoners. Only one woman and her husband were spared; the former had slept with Dante in exchange for freedom. Enraged, the woman's husband murdered Dante.

Death himself arrived to take Dante's soul to Hell. Refusing to die before seeing Beatrice, Dante defeated Death and returned to Florence. At his family home, Dante discovered Beatrice murdered. Beatrice, who had been tricked into wagering with Lucifer on Dante's faithfulness, had her soul taken to Hell. Determined to absolve himself of his sins and rescue his love, Dante descended into Hell.

Dante battled his way through the Nine Circles, symbolically facing his sins as he descended. Dante eventually admitted he deserved damnation and prayed for Beatrice's salvation. Beatrice's soul was absolved and taken to Heaven. At Hell's nadir, Lucifer revealed he plotted Beatrice's abduction. To traverse Hell, Dante had to destroy Lucifer's chains, unintentionally freeing him. The souls Dante absolved during his journey empowered him to defeat and reimprison Lucifer. He escaped from Hell to Purgatory, continuing his journey to meet Beatrice in Paradise.

Battle vs. Cervantes de Leon (Original Timeline) (by Leolab)[]

Dante is sailing back to Florence after escaping from Hell. While sailing off of the coast of Spain, he notices a dramatic and sudden weather change: where it was once sunny and cheerful, it is now cold and rainy. Worried, he straps his cross to his belt. He sees a ship approaching and realizes that, despite the heavy winds and rolling seas, his boat has not moved. Thinking something has gone awry, he walks out onto the deck of his ship, scythe in hand, to the sight of the Dread Pirate, Cervantes, walking onto his ship, dual swords in hand. Dante readies his scythe and calls out a challenge to Cervantes, who enters a combat stance in response.

Cervantes moves first, lunging with Acheron, his longsword. Dante nimbly parries with his scythe, striking back. His blow is turned aside by Nirvana, Cervantes’ dagger. The two combatants trade strikes, neither getting in a hit. Suddenly, Cervantes ducks under Dante’s scythe and unleashes a flurry of quick stabs, two of which strike Dante in both shins. Wounded, Dante enters Redemption mode, and starts pushing Cervantes back. Dante then strikes with a projectile from his Cross, and the holy energies injure Cervantes and stuns him. As Redemption mode ends, Dante uses his “Suicide Fruit” magic, the blast knocking Cervantes on his back.

As Dante moves in for the kill, Cervantes struggles up and pulls off a shot with the pistol hidden in Nirvana, striking Dante in the hand Dante drops his scythe in pain, and Cervantes launches into his Critical Finish: he punches Dante into the ground, stabs him in the chest with both swords and throws him upwards. He then jumps above Dante, firing a charged bullet into his body. Dante hits the deck with a loud crack. Cervantes walks up to his limp form and feasts on his soul. Stated and fully healed, he commands his crew to continue with the raid and walks calmly back onto his ship.
