Little about him is known, but apparently, he was raised in the city of Fortuna as an orphan and taken in by Kyrie and Credo since childhood, growing into young adulthood together. Nero is a sardonic character and doesn't like to be messed with. He wields the Blue Rose, Red Queen,[1] and Devil Bringer. Nero was a Holy Knight in The Order of the Sword, a religious order that worships Sparda and fights to protect the world from demons. He performed "special jobs" for the Order. Nero's rebellious nature leads to the Order making him work alone[2], but Nero actually prefers to act as a lone wolf. He and Kyrie both fall in love some point prior to the beginning of the game. This love plays a major part during the events of Devil May Cry 4.
