Dante (ダンテ, Dante) was one of the leaders of the demon resistance.
Dante was a large demon with dark spiky hair that pointed upwards and two red horns. He had three scars going over his right eye.
Dante was a demon deeply discontent with the humans's capture and subsequent ill-treatment of his race. He did not like bowing to the humans and considered all who did as cowards. He hoped for a way to overcome the power the humans had stolen from the gods and restore the loss pride of the demons.
Dante was one of hundreds of demons captured by Charioce XVII's knights and taken to Anatae as a prisoner. Dante fought back and managed to gather a group of demons and live in hiding. Dante presumably offered any demon he could find a chance to join his group, and considered all those who rejected his offer as demons who wanted to bow down to the humans.
Azazel eventually came to Dante's hideout and offered Dante's group a solution. Dante was hostile since Azazel had turned down the offer to join them and accused Azazel of being a coward. His opinion of Azazel softened when he realized Azazel was the renowned "Ragged Demon".
Dante and his group agreed to listen to Azazel. A plan was given to use the "Red Dragon" as a weapon against Charioce XVII's knights. Azazel gave the group instructions on what to do with the ultimate goal being to incite a rebellion and defeat the King during a parade.
However, Charioce XVII was prepared for them and had set up a trap beforehand, leading Dante, Belphegor and Azazel to become surrounded by the knights, with the Red Dragon nowhere in sight.
Dante was killed by the knights, and his death shocked Belphegor so deeply she failed to run away. She was killed by a golem. Azazel, on the other hand, was captured and taken prisoner by the King, along with the Red Dragon, who had decided not to take part in the plot until the very last minute.
After escaping captivity, Azazel paid a visit to the location of Dante and Belphegor's deaths. Damage to the area remained though their bodies had been removed. When Azazel later confronted Lucifer on the latter's apparent cowardice and unwillingness to help rescue their people, Lucifer referenced to Dante and Belphegor when he mentioned Azazel's failure to save any demon.
