Devil May Cry - Characters
The main character in the video game series Devil May Cry is Dante. He is on a mission to avenge his mother’s death by defeating the demons. Mundus is the demon emperor who is responsible for the murder of Dante’s mother and corrupting his twin brother, Vergil. However, each game features another important character some of the player can also control. Devil May Cry 2 featured Lucia, an agile fighter. She is a devil hunter and is created as one of the playable characters. She is a member of clan of Vie de Marli. However, she was actually a demon created by Arius. When she discovers this, she asks Dante to kill her to prevent her from becoming insane and killing innocent people.
She is styled as tall, lithe, dark skinned beauty with bright red hair. She has deep emerald eyes and wears a short white cape and brown leather gloves. In Devil Trigger, she transforms into an angelic dove like creature. Then, she can launch a powerful attack that causes magic orbs of light to rain upon targeted enemies. She can even breathe underwater.
