Useful information on Dante Falconeri
* 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.

Lulu brings her husband breakfast at the PCPD. They discuss the Denise/Ava situation. He hopes that Sonny's visit will agitate some truth out of Denise downstairs. When she asks what Valerie was doing there yesterday, the woman in question walks in. She tells Lulu that she's applying to work there. Lulu tells Dante and Valerie that she has no problem with her working there. Lomax stomps in, complaining that Sloane seems to be AWOL. Lulu takes Val down the hall. Sloane still hasn't arrived. Down in the cells, Denise complains about her breakfast to her prison guard. He shows Sonny in. She recognizes him from the papers. He's sure she's Ava and wishes he'd killed her. They go over the night on the bridge. She asks 'Dimples' to stop with accusations. "I ain't never killed nobody never," she insists. He challenges her to show him that she doesn't have Ava's gunshot scar. "You want me to show you my boob?" she asks. She doesn't doff her top for strangers. He nags her until she agrees to show him. When she opens her shirt, she reveals a big tattoo on her breast. She got it to cover up a tattoo of her ex-lover's name, Bobo. He's sure it was just to cover up her wound. Corinthos keeps staring at her. Dante comes in to say the results are in. Sonny starts laughing. They all go upstairs. Kiki and Morgan are there. Denise tells them how gorgeous they are. Lucas comes in with the results.
Valerie arrives to see Dante at the station and offer her sympathy for his brother. She also reveals she learned they are hiring for a new administrative assistant, so she came to apply for the job. Later, Ava/Denise is brought in and handed over to Dante. Kiki, Morgan and Alexis aren’t far behind and explain what they know to Dante. Dante decides to run her prints to find out if she is Ava or not. Denise tells them that they can’t fingerprint her, as she doesn’t have any prints. She explains she has an allergy to gloves, and working with the chemicals all day long as a beautician has caused her fingerprints to rub right off. Dante suggests a DNA test instead, but Alexis says he will need a warrant for that. Denise offers to take the test, but Dante says she’ll still have to stay the night in a cell. She takes the test and she tries to convince Dante to trust her to come back in the morning for the results, but he has her carted off. Before she is taken away, Denise thanks Kiki and Morgan for being so understanding.
