Dante Angelo Falconeri
Played by Dominic Zamprogna

Dante is a good guy and a police officer. He grew up in Bensonhurst with his mom, Olivia. He didn't know until he was well into adulthood that his real father is Sonny Corinthos, a mobster in Port Charles. He came to town in 2009, working with the FBI, undercover as Dominic, to get into Sonny's organization and take him down. Instead, he ended up shot. After he recovered, he learned from his mother that Sonny was his dad.

At first he wanted nothing to do with Sonny, but eventually he has come to like and admire him, despite his criminal activities. Sonny has tried his best to get Dante to love him.  Dante was very angry with him until Sonny saved his life when he took a bullet for him 2012. Still, he arrests Sonny whenever it is needed.

Dante is very close to his mother, despite her lying to him for many years. He is also very close to his half-brother Michael and watches over him. He tries to be a good brother to Michael and Kristina, Sonny's other kids.

He also has worked closely many times with Lucky Spencer, another cop, and Jason, Sonny's right-hand man. His mentor is Ronnie. They worked together in New York and now do so in Port Charles. Ronnie really hates Sonny and is always pointing out when he thinks that Dante is getting too close to Sonny or is having a conflict of interest.

Dante began a relationship with Lulu Spencer. They had many ups and downs in their relationship but finally got married in 2011. They currently both work at the Port Charles Police Department. He is a cop, and she does office work there. However, she also helps him with solving cases.

We learned that Dante also had a past with Brenda Barrett back in New York, but they were just friends and he protected her after she had been dating another mobster and had his child.

Dante is about as close to a hero as you can get on the show, especially since Robert Scorpio is no longer around. He is a good detective and is always working to put the bad guys behind bars.
