The bad dmc anime just made me want a dmc5 au where V is a little more subtle abt his mission. Like his familiars masquerade as human(ish) retainers and he just hires dante to escort him a la pattylowell to get the big chungus fruit before it falls into the wrong hands or w/e.
minor character. big. buff. looks like a stereotypical bruiser. think his name’s frank. spies on dante bc reasons.
pattylowell, 12, orphan extraordinaire in a frilly pink dress and twin tail braids. catches frank lurking around dante’s office after he leaves: imma kick his ass
how tf is dante in his mid 40s when pattylowell is 18. im gonna go wild thinking about this timeline stuff. hopefully its just a memory thats been fabricated into my mind of itsuno and matt walker saying that dante is that old in dmc5.... because
