Dante is the orphaned child of his late father, a mob informant, who was killed in a warehouse explosion with Dantes' mother. Raised by both his parents families, he was treated like an outcast and a burden. Dante went through college studying the occult, history and archaeology, this lead him to locate a hell realm containing demonic monkey like creatures that fed on anger, despair and pain. Whether his ability to survive in this realm came by his own magical studies, or by choice of the demons of the realm remains uncertain.
Dante based his realm as a joke on the book "Dante's Inferno", while also holding a disco-like theme based on the song " Disco Inferno" from the 1970's. Dante himself is an aficionado of 1970 style music, fashion and fads, possibly suggesting he found the hell realm as far back as said decade. Dante has sustained his life as well as captured souls of evil people in this hell realm for years by hiring criminals to abduct and enslave evil people as tortured sustenance to the demons of his Inferno.
