The Disguised Governor

Dante Grimes wears the cloak of normalcy with finesse. In his assumed identity, he appears as a mild-mannered older gentleman managing the county library. Little does the world know that behind this façade lies a being of immense power and intrigue. Only a select few, including Earl Blacke, Daelin Long, and Charming Moon Knight, are privy to Dante’s true origins—he hails from the rift itself.

Otherworldly Appearance

When Dante sheds his disguise, he reveals a form that transcends mortal beauty. With skin as blue as the deepest seas and tattoos of chrome that ripple beneath the surface as he channels his rift-based abilities, Dante presents a visage akin to that of a god. His long silver hair, composed of ethereal leaves, adds an otherworldly charm to his already striking presence.

Master of the Rift

Dante Grimes is not just a Governor; he is a master manipulator of the rift. His talents extend beyond the conventional, allowing him to traverse time and space effortlessly. He orchestrated the arrival of Earl Blacke from 1888 into the present day, as well as the appearance of Daelin’s ancestor from Revolutionary War times. Yet, his motives remain shrouded in secrecy.

The Puzzling Agenda

What drives Dante Grimes to weave the threads of time and bring individuals from different eras into the present? No one, not even those closest to him, fully understands his motives. He persistently urges Earl Blacke to become his general, insisting that without an army, Earth’s universe is doomed. However, the identity of the impending enemy remains a closely guarded secret, known only to Dante himself.

A Sandwich Shop Proprietor

After relinquishing his librarian position, Dante adopts the guise of a sandwich shop owner located 90 minutes from Settler. It is here that Daelin Long first encounters him. Despite attempting to keep a low profile, Dante’s presence is marked by an undeniable air of authority and an aura of unresolved destiny.

Tormenting Earl Blacke

Dante’s relentless pursuit of Earl Blacke as his potential general adds a layer of tension to the series. He remains insistent, undeterred by Earl’s resistance, compelling him to accept a role that may decide the fate of not just Settler, but the entire universe.

As readers delve deeper into “The Rifter” series, Dante Grimes emerges as a captivating enigma—a character whose motives, powers, and connection to the rift continue to intrigue. The path he treads is paved with secrets, and as the series unfolds, one can’t help but wonder: What lies at the heart of Dante’s cosmic machinations?
