Meet Dante and his Weapons in Devil May Cry

by William Schwartz


We were introduced to a younger version of Dante  last year, and to the dismay of some, his looks were troublesome, but there’s at least some reason for this.  Dante grew up in various institutions, orphanages, youth correction facilities and foster homes but these were mostly operated by demons and often resulted in torture and violence. Dante has therefore developed a deep hatred of demons and authority in general but tries to stay incognito. He sides with the little guy, the victims of what he sees as an unfair society.

I suppose this explains the better part of the ass-kickery that he dishes out on a regular basis.  He doesn’t do this with his fists.  He’ll be using the Rebellion Sword, Ebony & Ivory.  The Rebellion sword was given to Dante by his father Sparda as a weapon with which he could protect himself against the demons that hunt him.

Ebony & Ivory have straight, clean looking barrels that make them look like contemporary firearms, while the addition of ornate embossing is used to give the guns a feeling of mystique and uniqueness. As you move into the grip you can see that the guns have a more fluid, liquid-like look that adds further mystery and a demonic flavor to their design.

Rebellion is designed to look like a powerful sword, with the detailing in the handle giving it a feeling of historical significance coupled with a demonic heritage. The same design ethos that was used for the Ebony & Ivory grips is also true for Rebellion’s hilt, making the weapons match stylistically.
