Never having any ambitions or determination since high school, he has become ashamed of how little he has accomplished in life and undeserving of his parents' high praise, even acting out at times. Consequently, he grew up at odds with Cisco, jealous of his brother for have such traits as goals for the future and the drive to pursue them, ultimately leading to success. Despite this, Dante is shown to care for his brother, willing to risk his life to save Cisco.
