Head Cannons Pt1 Dante
heyoo. let’s see if tumblr let’s this post through the gate… anyways, here’s some head cannons for dante! there is some stuff that touches on depression, so i guess this is a trigger warning? maybe? i just want you lovelies to know what you may be walking into <3
* A protector. The kinda guy who’d act like he don’t care, but would happily throw himself in front a car for someone. He feels this overwhelming urge to protect everyone, no matter what. Especially friends, family and any lover he takes. He feels like its his responsibility?
*Feels like, so much survivor’s guilt??? After the loss of his mother, brother, and other’s along his life (like Nell) Dante has grown to have a horrible case of survivor’s guilt, feeling like he’s cursed, that everyone he cares for will be taken away from him, due to him being the son of Sparda. This leads to him having abandonment issues and some heavy hitting depression. This guilt could also attribute to his overprotectiveness, and his hesitance to get too close to people. Like how he sleeps around, and tends to annoy everyone.
*He annoys everyone in hopes of maybe they’ll get annoyed and leave him, so in that way, they’d be safe from the curse he swears haunts him.
*He’s always wanted kids, but thinks maybe his life is too dangerous and unpredictable to afford having children with a long term s/o.
*Dante will totally deny acting like a demon, at all, which is cute, because he subconsciously does it. Like what he says is a walk around town is actually him surveying his territory. He scents other people, and displays normal adult demon tendencies, but totally denies it.
*This boy? He loves him some home cooked meals, and can actually cook. He’s no master chief, but he can make scrambled eggs and not totally burn them? Imagine the basic bachelor menu, and that’s what he can do.
*He’s not gonna make you spaghetti with pasta sauce from scratch and artisan noodles, but he can boil noodles and warm up a jar of pasta sauce.
*He usually doesn’t, because he never sees the point to.
*He knows his mother’s apple pie recipe by heart. Jarred pasta sauce? Sure. Box mac and cheese? Hell yeah! Frozen pie crust? HOW DARE YOU. EVA’S PIE MUST BE MADE FROM SCRATCH AND ANGEL’S TEARS YOU HEATHEN. NO SHORT CUTS!
*He usually makes it during holidays, and sometimes for a big event?
Happy birthday, have a pie.
*He actually loves having people around his shop. Lady, Trish, Nero and Patty? He loves having them there, even though he complains. He adores the feeling of life people he considers family bring to his shop. It makes his devil side so freakin’ excited, because his family is in his den, being all happy and safe, where he can look out for them. (like the big alpha devil he is)
*Total, 100% bleeding heart. He is such a big, emotional guy, though he totally doesn’t show it. He’d be the one to bring donuts and coffee to homeless people, and act like its no big deal. He’d look out for street kids, though try to not get caught doing it.
*He heckin’ LOVES spending time with Nero and Vergil. Family outings! YES!
*Will heckle everyone he cares for. Thinks its funny when Nero yells at him.
*This 6 foot man child loves the boardwalk. Oh god, the rides are so fun, and he LOVES the shooting carnival games.
*He’s a total dork too. Loves music, and vinyls. He’s such an excellent guitarist, and is pretty good on drums too!
*Sometimes, he’ll start humming, or singing to himself. He never notices, but it’s so nice. His voice is deep and raspy, makes you think of whiskey in a way.
*Secretly, he actually likes reading. Other than magazines. He likes big fantasy novels, like game of thrones. He couldn’t get into the show much.
*He likes old cheesy action and horror movies, with bad effects.
*Loves old cars and motorcycles!
*Plays dumb, but is actually pretty smart, and great at solving riddles and puzzles!
*Will actually cry if you give him a heartfelt gift. Big manly tears for a big manly man <3
*He’d need an s/o that could assure him that they’d never leave, and never hurt him. That there’s nothing that could happen, that would make them leave. That they would stay with him through thick and thin, and not take it personally when he tries to push them away. Someone who’d understand his depression when it gets bad, and help him out.
*I don’t think he’d care too much about gender. Very open dude. <3
hope you enjoy ^^
