Might controls everything. And without strength, you cannot protect anything... let alone yourself.
~ Vergil to Dante

You will regret... being born useless and human! I will show you... your worst nightmares! I will give you... despair and death!
~ Urizen to Nero

He who desires, but not acts, breeds pestilence. So it is written.
~ V

With Dante

As Urizen


The eldest twin son of the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda and his human wife Eva, both his life and his younger brother Dante's were forever changed when they watched helplessly as demons killed their mother. Believing himself responsible for not being able to protect her, Vergil sought absolute power by any means necessary, going so far as to cast aside his humanity and embrace his demonic heritage.
