* Infiltrated the Corinthos mob as an undercover detective.
Current: PCPD detective
Past: Corinthos solider
Past: Zacchara soldier
Dante grew up in Bensonhurst as Olivia Falconeri’s son, but never knew that Sonny Corinthos was his father. He came to Port Charles using the name Dominic Pirelli and worked for the Zacchara family. He botched a hit ordered by Claudia on Jason and as he tried to escape through the woods, encountered Morgan, Carly and Michael who he held at gunpoint. Dante eventually let Carly and the kids go and took off to recuperate from a gunshot wound in Claudia’s room in Sonny’s house.
After he healed, Dante reconnected with his mother and then went to Sonny for a job. Sonny agreed to give him a chance to prove himself by finding the traitor in his organization.
Dante was revealed to be an undercover cop who infiltrated Sonny's organization in order to take him down. Little did he know, Sonny was his father who Olivia wanted to keep away from him fearing his life in the mob was too dangerous.
As Dante gathered evidence against Sonny, he fell in love with Lulu Spencer and eventually told her he was a cop. As he was about to officially bust Sonny, Sonny shot him in the chest. Olivia burst in and told Sonny he just shot his own son. Dante survived, but wanted nothing to do with his new found father. However he did not implicate Sonny in the shooting.
When Sonny went on trial for Claudia's murder, Dante learned Michael was really the guilty one. Believing he was doing right by his brother and upholding the law, Dante turned Michael into the court, making a permanent enemy of Carly.
Brook Lynn Ashton came to town on Carly's dime to seduce her childhood friend Dante so Lulu would dump him. Much to Carly's ire, the plan didn't work.
Brenda was the next threat to Dante and Lulu's relationship. Dante guarded Brenda years prior in New York City. When The Balkan's son, whom she used to date, attacked Dante, Brenda shot and killed him. Dante got rid of the body and they never spoke of it again. Until she hit Port Charles that is. Brenda's re-entrance into Dante's life brought up old feelings he felt for her that he thought he had buried.
Past feelings never tempted Dante or Brenda, as Dante was in love with Lulu and Brenda only had eyes for Sonny. However, Lulu was none too pleased to find out Dante lied to her about knowing Brenda. She eventually came around and after the Balkan threat passed, Dante helped Lulu try to track down her father at a brothel in Florida. After a dangerous run-in with the brothel's owner Javier, they returned to Port Charles without Luke.
Dante was ready to move forward with their relationship and asked Lulu to move in with him. While she was considering it, she discovered that Dante lied to her once again about Lucky using drugs. She broke up with him, but Dante was undeterred and asked her to marry him. As she pondered that proposal, Dante was shot by Anthony Zacchara in Sonny's warehouse.
As Dante recovered, Lulu accepted his proposal, but was leery of marrying a cop. She started drinking, which didn't get out of hand, but eventually realized she loved Dante enough to accept the risks of his job. They married in an intimate setting in a Bensonhurst church with just Olivia in attendance. Of course, Olivia invited her whole family, who hid during the ceremony, but celebrated with the couple afterwards.

At the clinic, Maxie and Nathan find Lulu and Dante and they all run off to find Anna before the building explodes. Meanwhile, Robin and Jason prepare to leave their room just as Anna is entering. Neither of their access cards works so Anna dashes off to look for a different card. She runs into Obrecht, who is frantic to find Nathan. The groups converge and Obrecht pulls Nathan into her arms. Anna gives her officers orders to clear the facility while they head to the main entrance. Nathan wants to know what happened to Victor. Anna tells him he’s dead but when he presses for details Obrecht urges them to get a move on. Inside their room, Jason works to unlock the door when it suddenly opens and Helena enters. She has her goons knock out Jason and Robin sarcastically congratulates her on her return from the dead. Helena strokes the embryo chamber and tells Robin that Stavros is dead but will live on, no thanks to Lulu. She tells Robin that Dante and her mother are here to rescue Maxie and Lulu, but the building is about to blow and the doors are sealed. Helena has the override card from Victor with access to all the back tunnels. Robin refuses to leave with Helena as Jason gets a gun, shoots Helena’s goons, then takes Robin and runs off. Helena calmly grabs the embryo and walks out. Meanwhile, the others realize the front door is locked so they all raise their guns and shoot the lock at the same time. It works and they escape and take cover just as the building explodes.
At Crichton-Clark, Maxie and Nathan start making out over Peter’s dead body. He realizes it isn’t the best time or place and instead gives Maxie a sexy lesson in proper gun handling before she grabs the Aztec knife and they leave. Meanwhile, Dante bursts into Lulu’s room, gun drawn. Stavros puts a scalpel to Lulu’s neck and threatens to slit her throat, Cassadine style. Dante relents and kicks over his gun but then Lulu suddenly elbows Stavros in the gut so Dante can pounce. Lulu and the female doctor struggle, and Lulu is able to open the door with her badge long enough for police backup to see Dante. There’s lots of shooting but they can’t get in the room and Stavros pulls a gun on Dante. Lulu throws herself in front of the gun, insisting Stavros kill her first. In Victor’s office, Obrecht interrupts his arrest by pulling a gun on Anna. Anna thinks this is about Faison and suggests Obrecht think about her son instead. Obrecht says she is – and suddenly shoots Victor. Anna can’t believe it but Obrecht couldn’t risk Victor escaping jail now that he knows the truth. The police backup come in and tell Anna that Dante is sealed in a room with Lulu and Stavros. Anna runs off with them while Obrecht apologizes to Victor. It’s kill or be killed, but she regrets he had to die. Victor isn’t dead and croaks out he’d hoped their kiss-kill relationship would end in a kiss – or a kill by his hand. She tells him they are the only two who know Nathan is not really his son, and the truth is far, far worse. Meanwhile, Jason punches out the clinic director and snatches his medical file. He takes the access badge off of the doctor and sneaks out of the room. He hides as Maxie and Nathan walk by, then enters a room to find Robin chained to a wall. She’s ecstatic and realizes he can’t talk and has a fever. He suddenly shoots off her handcuff and she admonishes him for not warning her, then gives him a big hug. Meanwhile, Maxie and Nathan open a door and find the doctor and director that Jason took out. Nathan wakes up the director who tells him the person who knocked them out was a priority patient of Mr. Cassadine. Outside the room with Stavros, Lulu and Dante, Anna has the men look for another way in. Inside, Stavros reminds Lulu that he can raise their child with or without her. Dante and Stavros struggle over the gun. It goes off, killing Stavros. Anna finally enters with backup and tells them Victor is dead just like Stavros. Back in his office, Stavros wants to know who Nathan’s father is. Obrecht moves to put a pillow over Victor’s face. He pushes a button in his vest and suddenly loud sirens and lights go off across the whole clinic. He tells Obrecht it is a contingency to protect against biological warfare, and in a few minutes all that will be left of the clinic will be a crater. He won’t disclose how much time she has and she runs for it. As the sirens go off Anna leads another sweep of the clinic and is about to open the door holding Robin and Jason. Meanwhile, the clinic director tells Nathan and Maxie they have to leave since someone triggered the disrupt sequence.
