V is a guest character from the Devil May Cry franchise.


V is the human half of the the son of Sparda, Vergil, and one of the main protagonists and the third playable character introduced in Devil May Cry 5.

Throughout the events of the Devil May Cry series, Vergil suffered defeat after defeat, trauma after trauma. After the perceived abandonment by his brother and mother in Mundus' attack on his family, Vergil vowed to attain power, as a means to cope with the loss of his mother. However, his plans to attain the power of his father failed when his twin brother Dante defeated him, keeping their father's sword away from Vergil. Shortly after, he was defeated and subjugated by Mundus, the one who attacked his family all his years ago, and transformed into a dark knight called Nelo Angelo. In his case on Mallet Island, Dante would defeat his brother again, though he wouldn't know it until it was too late. 

After Mundus' own defeat at the hands of Dante, Vergil, in one last bid to survive and gain power, sought to forcibly remove what he considered the weakness within him: his humanity. He severed the demonic arm of his own son, Nero, took the Yamato for himself back, and stabbed himself with it in the ruins of his destroyed childhood home. This would split the son of Sparda into two, the demon Urizen, who would grow a Qliphoth for its fruit to attain ultimate power, and the human V, who was everything Vergil thought weak about himself: his humanity, his defeats, and his trauma, represented by his shadowy familiars who resembled other servants of Mundus.

V, in his remorse, would seek out his twin brother within the offices of Devil May Cry once more to finally atone for his crimes and stop Urizen before he could destroy the world in his final quest for power.
