    Summary

    To say that Nero is a tough puzzle to figure out would be an understatement.

    Not that Vergil never tried - if sitting in the corner of the van stealing glances at the child even counted as 'trying' that is - but what more could he do? The fact that Dante and the mechanic made it look so easy to interact with him doesn't help either.

    Then again, these two never tore Nero's arm off, nor did they leave him drowing in a pool of his own blood. But Vergil kept convincing himself : He needed the Yamato in order to survive, and he took it because it was rightfully his.

    Summary

    Failure is the greatest teacher, and while Vergil loves to learn, he absolutely despises failing.

    (five times Vergil gave up, and one time he didn't)

    Summary

    A tattered jacket, a slow afternoon, and a wave of guilt all combine to drive Nero towards a challenge he has yet to conquer: learning to sew. With needle in hand and his father at his side, he ventures forth.

    He may have failed at his duty of being a father, but let it not be said that a Son of Sparda failed in his duty to be a protector.

    Summary

    It’s some months before Nero’s allowed into his father’s study—allowed because there’s a careful, complex negotiation of space and territory taking place between Vergil and Dante in the Devil May Cry. Laws are being rewritten, the borders of an existing nation redrawn, the silhouette of a new land altogether emerging. 

    Nero wades into the middle of it each time he visits, his skin prickling in electric recognition of demon presence and danger, while the rest of him echoes with a conflicting sense of belonging and not belonging. It's worse with his father—a stranger, a threat, one half of his blood—around. 

    Standing at the door of Vergil’s study, Nero tries not to feel awkward.
