Lightbearer DLC Edit
Virgil first appears during the opening cutscene when Nick wakes up from a nightmare, who at first mistakes him as a fan he slept with before seeing that he's a rat.
Nick, in shock, asks Virgil if he's hallucinating him as a rat or if it's a real rat and he's just hallucinating the voice of his agent. Virgil reminds he's his ex-agent, after having sacked him.
After this point, Virgil tells Nick he needs to set things right. And from that point on becomes Nick's guidance, remember what had happened to him, and redeem himself.Halfway through the DLC, the real body of Virgil Dainty can be found in the arms of a golden Nick Lightbearer statue.
- Virgil's name is a reference to a character with the same name from Dante's Inferno. His role guiding Dante through Hell to Heaven, mimics his guiding of Nick through the game.
