Devil May Cry follows the adventures of the demon hunter Dante who himself is half demon and half human. Dante is hired through his own business named “Devil May Cry”. The characters are based off of the popular capcom playstation 2 games.
The series is based on the manga and novel volumes, and sees the return of series regulars, Trish and Lady. In the show, Dante runs his devil-hunting business, Devil May Cry, while struggling under constant financial debt. There are also two new regular characters—Dante’s agent Morrison who visits frequently, and Patty Lowell, a young orphan girl he saved in the first episode, who also visits frequently and shares a sisterly relationship with Dante.
While the show’s stories were mostly self-contained, a season-long plot was introduced in the first episode and came to the forefront in episodes 10-12.
Dante – Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Justin Cause (English)
A half-demon half-human son of Sparda the Legendary Dark Knight (a demon) and Eva (a human), Dante operates as a private investigator, mostly accepting jobs involving the supernatural. When he accepts a job, he diligently finishes it to the point of gaining a reputation of infallibility; he is strong enough to face a small army of lesser Devils with bare hands. Known for his cocky banter when on a job, he is fond of strawberry sundaes and pizza without olives. His weapons of choice are a pair of Caliber .45 pistols known as Ebony (for its dark color) and Ivory (for its silver color). He also carries his sentient faithful sword, Rebellion in a guitar case.
Trish – Voiced by: Atsuko Tanaka (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)
A demon created by Lord Mundus in the image of Dante’s mother (face wise) and given demonic powers such as electricity, strength and quick healing. She joined Dante after Mundus’ defeat and became his partner. Though it didn’t take long for them to agree on separate ways due to certain conflicts in interest. Doing jobs on her own, she wanders mostly outside of Dante’s usual hunting stops. However Dante did remind her at one point that she can come back at any time, though not wanting to admit he simply gets lonely in his less than inspiring office.
Lady – Voiced by: Fumiko Orikasa (Japanese), Melissa Davis (English)
A human devil hunteress, descended from the priestess whose blood Sparda used to seal the gate between the human and demon worlds. Dante seems to be in constant debt to her. She sometimes brings Dante work, but usually must con him into accepting the jobs and generally takes his pay claiming them as part of the debt he owes her.
Patty Lowell – Voiced by: Misato Fukuen (Japanese), Hilary Haag (English)
A young girl who Dante met after she supposedly came into a large inheritance. This turned out to be a scam, and she has since been spending a lot of time with Dante, whether he likes it or not. She turned out to be a descendant of a powerful magician who sealed the devil Abigail. Patty is very girly and loves cute things, sometimes decorating Dante’s otherwise gloomy office with ribbons and plush toys. She loves romantic TV shows and serves as Dante’s only source of feminine influence in the absence of Trish and Lady.
J.D. Morisson – Voiced by: Akio Ōtsuka (Japanese), Rob Mungle (English)
Dante’s liaison. He finds Dante jobs and sometimes helps out with repairs around the office.
Sid – Voiced by: Nachi Nozawa (Japanese), Christopher Ayres (English)
A weak demon who first appears in episode one, and has recurring appearances throughout the series. Initially seeming to be an insignificant danger and minor nuisance, Dante shows mercy towards Sid and restrains from killing him when given the opportunity. Unfortunately, Sid’s ambitions prove to be far more dangerous than Dante possibly imagined.
