Dante can be found drowning his sorrows in the Sour Barnacle in Black Root. He has fallen out of favor with King Praetor of Dernholm who could previously have tasked the player with collecting Black Root's taxes. If the player makes this task known to Dante then he will see this as an opportunity to regain the favor of the king and offer his services to the player. When the player then turns in the taxes to the king, they are presented with the opportunity to speak for Dante, in which case he will leave the party. His reaction is unaffected by beauty.
