–Dante's First Line
Dante is a young looking boy with shoulder length blonde hair and piercing red eyes (that were originally brown) that are arched in a way that naturally makes him look emotionless and is usually seen with a emotionless expression on his face. Dante usually wears a royal prince type clothing that dates back to 18th Century Britain. It consists of a black button up shirt with gold accents and gold lining running through it with black pants and matching black shoes. He has a extremely skinny build with little no no muscle mass.
When Dante gets angry or enraged (which is very rarely) his face gets older and you can see fangs shoot forth from his mouth.
Dante is described as a genius in logic and problems, but has difficulty understanding emotions or behavior, relying on Riley to tell him what to do, how to understand emotions, and how to behave. He also rarely shows any emotions on his face and, despite being a genius he speaks in a way where he makes pauses at random moments between words and speaks from a 3rd person perspective.
Dante is usually emotionless, very rarely conveying any actual emotions. He shows extreme loyalty to Riley Achilles and a distrust of Levi Mammon and seeks to have Riley to himself, always trying to push NIklaus and the others away when they get close to Riley. It is shown that when Riley isn't in the same room as him, Dante goes into a catatonic state until he returns.
Dante has a interest in games, where he usually is seen playing a type of hand held game whenever he is by Riley's side. Dante also has a addiction to sweets with Isabella stating that it's the only thing he eats (due to being a ghost, he doesn't even need food to survive).
Azazel states that Dante is neither good nor evil, he's just a neutral being due to him being a ghost that is over 2 centuries old, his old personality has eroded away, replaced by a emotionless shell of who he was. It wasn't until Riley used his prophet powers to tame Dante that Dante became able to even feel any emotions again, which is why he grows close to Riley, being the first person he sees after being "reborn".
Not much is known about Dante's past, other than the fact that he was from a wealth and important family that were all killed by a serial killer. After his death, his spirit lived on and he became a ghost and due to his anger and resentment became a vengeful spirit haunting the former estate of his parents. Whenever people moved into the estate, he would torture and scare the children with some parents having to send their kids to mental asylums. Dante would work like this: he would appear in his normal form and ask the children to play a game, the children would agree and Dante would began to scare the kids at night by leaving dead animals lying around the manor (mostly things like birds and cats), pollute the water in the household, illusions of monsters, make noises and scare the residents at the house. When the kids would finally say they didn't want to play anymore and asked Dante to stop, Dante would grow angry which causes him to transform a adult with fangs and use his shadows to traumatize the children.
Dante continued this for almost two centuries until the Wings of Desires finally decided to see this spirit for themselves, Riley Achilles then confronted him and used his powers to tame Dante and made him a member of their team.

Being a Ghost, Dante has all the normal powers of a ghost such as:
Electrical Negation: Being able to disrupt electrical appliances and ultimate turn them off. Dante is also capable of negating electrical attacks.
