Vergil (also called the Masked Man) is the leader of "The Order" and twin brother of Dante in the game DmC: Devil May Cry. He appears to lack the ruthlessness of his counterpart Vergil of the original games and like Dante, he is now half angel, as opposed to half human.
Like Dante, Vergil harbors a deep hatred of demons, but Vergil also carries himself better because of his upbringing, and wishes to do more than just kill demons, but to actually break their hold over Limbo City. This iteration of Vergil also has many similarities with his classic counterpart; he is calm and cool at almost all times, and focuses solely on his goal, disregarding most of the people he has to use to get there. Oftentimes it is unclear whether his motives for recruiting Dante were based on brotherly attachment, or he is simply manipulating Dante's familial bonds to rouse him into action for the Order. Though, it is possible that he merely believes fighting against the demons is their top priority as he has been shown to respect Dante. It is later revealed that, while he certainly loves humanity, he has absolutely no faith in them whatsoever. He sees them as a lesser species in need of his protection. He also loves his brother Dante. Though their battle at the end of the game causes him to question his love for his brother, when Dante almost killed him. Had it not been for Kat's intervention, Dante truly would have.
