* BadassGrandpa: 1,500+ years and still kicking. He has been Chapter Master of the Blood Angels for 1,100 of those years. In Dante's case, it's even more notable as Blood Angels often succomb to the Black Rage before reaching old age (at least for a Space Marine). Dante has, for some reason, managed to suppress it not only longer than anyone else in the chapter, but longer than most of the citizens (and warriors) of the Imperium has been alive.

* BadassGrandpa: He has served as Chapter Master for over 280 years. That's not even taking into account how long he was serving before he became Chapter Master.

* [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Evil-ish Chapter Master]]: He comes off as this, but he's just as good and noble as any of the Blood Angels sucessors.

* MilesToGoBeforeISleep: Older than most Astartes by many centuries, there is a part of him that longs for rest. But prophecies from the age of Sanguinius foretell a time when the Emperor will be in grave peril and depend on a golden warrior to defend him. Dante believes there is at least a chance this refers to him, so he will not let himself die until this has come to pass. [[spoiler: ''The Devastation of Baal'' strongly implies that the spirit of Sanguinius himself will not let Sanguinius die]].

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Has shades of this. ''The Devastation of Baal'' shows that he craves the release of death. Only his sense of duty and belief in the prophecy keep him going, [[though the spirit of Sanguinius may also have something to do with it]].

* BadassGrandpa: 1,100+ years and still kicking. Note that 1,100 is not how old Dante is. It is for how long he has been the Chapter Master. Given how challenging this position is you can pretty safely add another couple of centuries to get approximation of his age.

* TheFaceless: He is one of the few Space Marines commanders always depicted wearing his helm or the deathmask that comes with his office. Only in private will he take his mask off. It is an indicator of how despereate the situation is toward the end of ''The Devastation of Baal'' that he takes his mask off when addressing the remainder of the Blood Angels and their successor chapters before what they believe is their last stand against Hive Fleet Leviathan.

* DecliningPromotion: After stopping Arkio's schism, he is offered a captaincy, a massive promotion for a mere battle-brother. He turns it down in exchange for Arkio's surviving followers being subjected to rites that have a chance of cleansing and redeeming them instead of being summarily executed.
