Vergil is one of the children of the legendary Dark Knight Sparda and the human, Eva. The older twin brother of Dante, he is the main antagonist in Devil May Cry 3 and one of the recurring antagonists in Devil May Cry. Learning about Sparda's departure, the Prince of Darkness sent his minions after both his sons and their widow mother in Red Grave City, resulting in Eva's death in the childhood of the twins.

Cold and stoic, Vergil is willing to do anything on his journey to gain the power. The trauma for his mother's failure to protect and guide him (something she was able to do to her younger son, wich made them go separate ways after the assault of the Underworld) when their house was attacked by demons and her eventual death created his immense thirst for power and initial distaste for humankind. It is revealed later that the absence of someone to protect and love him made Vergil sank even more into the dark, as his solitude forced him to become stronger to survive. He immersed into the studies of the Underworld and its legends, reaching great intelligence and power of his demonic side. Having inherited Yamato as a child, a keepsake sword from his father able to separate the Human from the Devil, the man had the power to separate or unite both Worlds (Man and Demonic).

Despite most of his time in the human world being a mystery, it is known that he traveled around the world in search of knowledge about the demons, eventually reaching the Fortuna Island and siring a son, albeit it was apparently unknown to him. Returning from his travels and meeting a man with a similar goal to his, Vergil raised a demonic tower sealed by his father to try and reach the Underworld, ultimately failing in a final confrontation against his brother after he embraced his Human and Demon sides and gaining a renewed motivation. Choosing to stay in their father's old home, the defeated Vergil fell and let his brother escape, ending up meeting the Emperor of the Underworld shortly after and engaging in an confrontation with him.

Losing the fight because of his wounded state, Mundus overpowered and captured him, experimenting and ending up creating a knight so powerful that was stronger than any of his other creations, gaining his obedience by giving back the amulet given to him by his mother. This remade warrior was caled Nelo Angelo

After his and his master's defeat, Vergil would end up becoming weak of flesh and feelings. Finding the young Demon Hunter Nero was with his lost sword, Yamato, he would end up taking it back by ripping Nero's arm off, and with the blade, separated his own being in half: his Humanity, in the form of V, and his Demon side, in the form of Urizen, wich lead to the main events involving the second attack to Red Grave City.

After fusing back, he again wished to fight against his brother, as separating himself made him learn to accept both his natures. Even tough the match against Dante ended up interrupted, he was ultimately defeated by his own son and ended up reconciling with his family for his past mistakes, staying in the Underworld alongside his sibling for the sake of Mankind

When used, Nelo Angelo grew in size and lost his helmet, demonstrating the face of who he was before.

Sin Devil Trigger Editar

A new transformation Vergil acquired after fusing back into himself. Eating the fruit of the Qliphoth tree and accepting both his human and demonic sides gave birth to a new Devil Trigger of more bestial appearance, featuring new wings and tail. The S.D.T. gives the user much more power than a normal D.T., as well as giving new abilities. Vergil became capable of creating a duplicate of himself capable of using his own attacks, as well as the ability to fly
