Nikolai Dante

Nikolai Dante is the eponymous hero of a comics series published in the weekly British science fiction anthology 2000 AD. Created by writer Robbie Morrison and artist Simon Fraser, Dante first appeared in 1997. Fraser was the primary artist on the series for the first three years, with support from artists such as Charlie Adlard, Henry Flint, Chris Weston and Andy Clarke. From 2000 the majority of the stories were painted by John Burns. Fraser returned to the character in October 2006, his first work on the strip since April 2002.
Set in future Russia, the series follows Dante, a swashbuckling young thief and ladies' man, as he discovers he is an illegitimate scion of the Romanov Dynasty, aristocratic rivals to the Tsar, Vladimir the Conqueror of the House of Makharov. Dante's Romanov genes enable him to bond with a "Weapons Crest", a biological weapon which gives members of the dynasty superhuman abilities: in Dante's case, the ability to extend bio-blades from his hands. He gleefully outrages aristocratic society and enjoys a turbulent relationship with the Tsar's daughter Jena. Eventually war breaks out between the Makharov and Romanov dynasties, despite Jena and Dante's attempts to prevent it, and they break off their burgeoning romance to side with their families. After the end of the war and the defeat of the Romanovs, Dante returns to thieving, joining his mother, Katarina Dante, and her notorious pirate crew, before recruited by the Tsar to investigate the proliferation of cyborganic weaponry similar to the Romanov Weapons Crest.
