Unlike Dante, who was left in a demon-run orphanage as a child and had a rough upbringing on the streets, Vergil was adopted into a rich home to live a life of privilege. Dante's super-smart brother wrote a security encryption program and went on to become a multi-millionaire before leaving school.

The white haired swordsmith has a vendetta against demons, who killed his mother and enslaved his father, so he puts his vast fortunes to use in the pursuit of them. In Ninja Theory's DmC-verse Vergil has set up an underground organisation known as 'The Order' to research demons, with the group's goal to free humanity from the demon chokehold.
