* AllLovingHero: He wants to make everyone smile, no matter who they are or what they've done. With [[spoiler:Czeslaw Meyer]] he makes a serious case of demonstrating the [[PowerOfFriendship Power of Friendship]] and [[PowerOfTrust Trust]]. The only problem with this trope is that he's not really hero.

* DirtyOldMan: When he corners Sylvie in 1711, he confesses to lusting after her, and his subsequent attempt to devour her is framed in a disturbingly sexual light.

* DirtyOldMan: When he corners Sylvie in 1711, he confesses to lusting after her, and his subsequent attempt to devour her is framed in a disturbingly sexual light. It is subtly implied that he's only acting that way because he's devoured Gretto and has either picked up the younger man's attraction to her or is mocking her with this fact. Neither of those possibilities make it any less creepy, though.

[[caption-width-right:200:He's an asshole. This is the truth.]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/AtsushiImaruoka (JP), Creator/IanSinclair (EN)

Eve Genoard's missing brother and grade-A asshole. Spent most of his time picking fights, pissing away money on booze, and generally being a dick. The one chink in his armor is his sister Eve, of whom he is [[BigBrotherInstinct protective]].

* AndIMustScream: Since they can't be killed by any normal means, Luck resorts to stuffing Dallas and his friends in barrels filled with cement and dumping them in the Hudson river, where their {{Healing Factor}}s keep them constantly drowning to death. However, their incomplete version of the elixir means they would have eventually died of old age, and a couple years later Luck lets Eve drudge them out as long as they don't mess with the Gandors anymore. [[spoiler:However, he's rescued by the Larvae in "The Slash".]]
* AssholeVictim: If he weren't an asshole, the audience might feel bad for the crap that happens to him.
* BackFromTheDead: He is given an AndIMustScream treatment in 1930, but the ending of the final episode of the anime shows Eve finally finding the barrel he was in... only to find it empty.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He slugs a fellow for suggesting they use his sister for money but, as with everything ''else'' he does, he fails at acting on it.
* ButtMonkey: Dallas gets kicked around by ''everyone''. Given [[{{Jerkass}} what kind of person he is]], we might enjoy it.
* CementShoes: Luck does this to him for crossing the Gandors and Martillo families.
* EvilerThanThou: He's terrified of Szilard after he devours one of his partners. The only reason he's working for him is because Szilard promised him money.
* HealingFactor: Dallas is an "incomplete" immortal, meaning he'll recover from any sort of physical harm, but still ages naturally.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: High on the "ineffectual", low on the "sympathetic."
* IronButtmonkey: Dallas when his deaths are PlayedForLaughs. It's justified in that he is immortal.
* JerkAss: He's rude, arrogant, bullies people weaker than him, and seeks revenge for self-inflicted slights. [[spoiler:However, once he is pulled out of the river in ''The Slash'' and finally returned to Eve, he turns over a new leaf and becomes a beloved philanthropist.]]
* KickTheDog: Dallas has many of these which is why he gets his ass kicked so often.
* LivingMacGuffin: In ''Drugs & the Dominoes''/the 1932 arc, though it's debatable if someone in a state of perpetual drowning can really be considered "living".
* OutGambitted: After murdering some of the Gandors' men, Dallas figures he can pin it on that StreetUrchin that kicked his ass earlier that day -- two birds with one stone, right? Not when said StreetUrchin is Luck Gandor's childhood friend, you can't.
* PetTheDog: His only redeeming quality is his [[BigBrotherInstinct affection and protectiveness of his little sister]], Eve.
* SmugSnake: His ego far exceeding his ability and sense is what gets him in trouble time after time.
* StrawLoser: When you get right down to it, half of his purpose in the story is to suck at everything and make the Gandor family members look good.
* UnknownRival: Ever since their fight, [[spoiler:and especially since being fished out of the river by the Larvae]], Dallas considers Firo to be his arch-nemesis and the root of all that is bad in the world. Firo, on the other hand, considers him an annoying dick.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Though he doesn't go crazy, Dallas does turn his {{Jerkass}} behavior up to eleven once he realizes he can't be killed for it.
