Sparda is a great demon, who is also known as "the legendary dark knight". Two thousand years ago, he "woke up to justice" and alone defeated Mundus and his legions. When sealing the netherworld, sensing his power had grown too strong, he intentionally seals himself and his own accursed power in as well. Later, he escaped his prison and quietly reined the human world and continued to preserve harmony. Before his death, he resurfaced in the modern day and fell in love and married Eva, who gave birth to his twin sons, Dante and Vergil.
