In '''''[[Long Into an Abyss]]''''', he is seen stepping outside onto the ground with Cage. Dante at first is hesitant to watch his son take off the radiation mask, but quickly finds out he does not have to. Dante relishes his time on the outside with his son and takes notice of a yellow flower he picks up. Before they leave, Cage once again tries to convince Dante to forcefully use The 48 to finally enter the outside, but once again Dante refuses and goes back inside. Later he is seen painting, but once he takes notice of the flower he picked up earlier is dying, he loses his inspiration and stops painting.

In '''''[[Coup de Grâce]]''''', he is seen being confronted by Jasper in Dante's office. Jasper takes his sword and threatens to use it on him. Dante astonished asks why he is doing this, and Jasper tells him how two of his friends went missing. Immediately Dante thinks that his Son and Dr. Tsing are responsible, and he attempts to find them with Jasper. Dante along with his guards come across Dr. Tsing performing a Bone Marrow on [[Harper]], with Monty watching in terror. Dante frees the two and takes Tsing into custody. However, when he confronts his son Cage, the guards turn on Dante as Cage says that everyone else at Mount Weather wishes to leave. Cage is then named the president and takes Dante into custody.

Cage is then named the president and takes Dante into custody.
   
In '''''[[Rubicon]]''''', he is seen in custody in the quarantine room at Mount Weather. While he is playing a record player listening to music, suddenly [[Bellamy Blake]] walks in and acts as a guard. Dante turns up the music to make sure they can't hear their conversation, and Dante asks who he is and what he is doing there. He says that Jasper Jordan sent to him to ask figure out how they can save their friends from having a Bone Marrow performed on all of them. Dante tells Bellamy a way to cause a radiation leak, causing the deaths of 11, but allowing the delinquents to escape. Later, Cage confronts him to let him know that what he has done was pointless, and won't change anything is Cage's plans. He tells Dante that he bombed the grounder allegiance party, with Dante looking in shock. Cage, with little compassion he has, injects Dante with the bone marrow he needs in order to leave Mount Weather, but still keeps him quarantined.

In '''''[[Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)]]''''', he is seen quarantined in his room. Cage walks in to ask for advice, but Dante interrupts him and tells him how disappointing it is to see how much he is messed up in only one week as president. Dante, before Cage walks up tells Cage however that the only way to save their people from the "savages", they must allow the grounders to go, but not the [[Sky People]] in order to make sure the threat that faces their people is a small one. When Cage returns to thank him, Dante shows no signs of thankfulness or happiness, only terrified at what he has done to the remaining 100.

In '''''[[Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)]]''''', he is seen being confronted by Clarke, Bellamy, and [[Monty]] in his quarantine room. He is taken to the control room to give them information on what they are going to do. On their journey, he reveals that he made the deal with [[Lexa]], and he regrets nothing. When they reach the control room, they find all the [[Sky People]] having their bone marrow drilled out of them. Clarke then contacts Cage to say that she will kill Dante if he does not let her people go, and she even lets Dante try to convince him to stop what he is doing by using the walkie talkie. Cage won't comply, so Clarke shoots Dante in the chest, killing him.
+
In '''''[[Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)]]''''', Dante remains in his room even after the rest of the Mountain Men travel to Level 5 due to a power outage. Clarke, Bellamy and Monty visit Dante for help in saving their friends who are being harvested for their bone marrow without killing everyone. However, Clarke quickly realizes that Dante is not going to help them which he confirms, stating that they cut the power, risking the lives of everyone in the mountain, including the people that helped them. Clarke insists that they are the good guys, stating that they left the turbine intact so that it could be repaired and that they knew Dante's people would be safe on Level 5. Dante simply asks what would've happened to the Mountain Men if they had released everyone and Clarke decides to get into the command center, dragging Dante along to help them whether he likes it or not.
   
  +
Traveling the empty halls to the command center, Dante points out that he told them the truth about no one being around and explains that after everything he has done, his people can be free but he can't. Dante explains to Clarke that "deliverance comes at a cost. I bear it so that they don't have to." Bellamy realizes that it was Dante and not Cage who came up with the plan to make a deal with the Grounders which he confirms.
  +
  +
Discovering their friends and family being harvested on the security cameras, Bellamy demands Dante call his people off but he refuses. Clarke instead contacts [[Carl Emerson]] and has him give the radio to Cage. Clarke threatens to kill Dante if Cage doesn't let her people go, but Dante simply orders his son to stay the course. Cage refuses to stop with Dante stating that releasing her people would mean the end of his people. Turning her gun on Dante, Clarke begs Cage to not make her kill his father, but Cage reluctantly stays strong, telling Dante that he will take care of their people. Dante tells Clarke that none of them have a choice and both Clarke and Dante affirm that they didn't want this before Clarke shoots Dante in the chest, killing him and holding the radio button down so that Cage can hear it.

I bear it so they don't have to.
— Dante to Clarke, Bellamy and Monty [src]


Dante Wallace was a recurring character in the second season. He was portrayed by Raymond J. Barry and debuted in The 48.

He was the President of Mount Weather when the Delinquents were captured. He would sometimes side with Cage and Dr. Lorelei Tsing but other times he assisted the Delinquents as he wanted to integrate them with the rest of the Mountain Men.

Early Life Edit

He was born in 2086 inside Mount Weather to President Wallace and his wife. At the age of seven in 2093, Dante's father opened the doors of Mount Weather after seeing the Grounders. Dante's mother and sister died from radiation poisoning. Sometime later when he became an adult, Dante became president of Mount Weather following in his father's footsteps.

Throughout the Series Edit

DanteClarke 2x01

Clarke and Dante

In The 48, Dante Wallace is first seen confronting Clarke Griffin at Mount Weather to explain to her everything that is going on. She demands answers, and he lets her know that they were able to gather up 48 survivors from the camp. He also tells Clarke that he had seen the Ark come crashing down, and will attempt to find more survivors. Throughout the episode, Dante tries to convince Clarke that she is safe at Mount Weather, but Clarke still is not sold.

In Inclement Weather, he is seen in the episode at the mess hall at Mount Weather. When Clarke continues to get snoopy and investigates, she notices a member of the 100 who was killed in action by a gunshot wound. Dante has to show Clarke that she is just worried about her friend. When she tries to show a gunshot wound to the Mountain Men, Dante proves her wrong by lying to her by tampering with the body of the dead member.

In Human Trials, he's seen near the end of the episode talking with his son and the doctor who saved Maya Vie. The doctor lets him know that their first human trial was a success, however Dante disapproves as he instructed her not to perform this act yet. After the doctor leaves, his son informs him that the test he did on Lincoln was a success.

Coup de Grace 025 (Dante and Jasper)

Jasper Jordan and Dante

In Fog of War, he is first seen talking with Cage Wallace and Lorelei Tsing, who are trying to convince Dante that they should forcibly extract blood from the rest of Jasper Jordan's group, considering Maya's recovery from his donated blood. Dante, however, says he wants to handle the situation with dignity, by only taking volunteers from the 100. He then speaks with Jasper, to tell him since his tests worked out, he wants Jasper to convince the 100 to donate blood to Mount Weather. Eventually, when Jasper manages to convince several of them to donate blood, this pleases Dante and thanks Jasper for his efforts. Dante then enters the other room to talk with his son Cage, who he believes is the one behind the radiation breach which almost killed Maya. Cage denies it, but Dante says that if he finds out Cage was behind it, there would be major consequences.

In Long Into an Abyss, he is seen stepping outside onto the ground with Cage. Dante at first is hesitant to watch his son take off the radiation mask, but quickly finds out he does not have to. Dante relishes his time on the outside with his son and takes notice of a yellow flower he picks up. Before they leave, Cage once again tries to convince Dante to forcefully use The 48 to finally enter the outside, but once again Dante refuses and goes back inside. Later he is seen painting, but once he takes notice of the flower he picked up earlier is dying, he loses his inspiration and stops painting.

In Coup de Grâce, he is seen being confronted by Jasper in his office. Jasper takes his sword and threatens to use it on him. Dante astonished asks why he is doing this, and Jasper tells him how two of his friends went missing. Immediately Dante thinks that his son and Dr. Tsing are responsible, and he attempts to find them with Jasper. Dante along with his guards come across Dr. Tsing performing a bone marrow harvesting on Harper McIntyre, with Monty Green watching in terror. Dante frees the two and takes Tsing into custody. However, when he confronts his son Cage, the guards turn on Dante as Cage says that everyone else at Mount Weather wishes to leave. Cage is then named the president and takes Dante into custody.

In Rubicon, he is seen in custody in the quarantine room at Mount Weather. While he is playing a record player listening to music, suddenly Bellamy Blake walks in and acts as a guard. Dante turns up the music to make sure they can't hear their conversation, and Dante asks who he is and what he is doing there. He says that Jasper sent to him to ask figure out how they can save their friends from having a Bone Marrow performed on all of them. Dante tells Bellamy a way to cause a radiation leak, causing the deaths of 11, but allowing the Delinquents to escape. Later, Cage confronts him to let him know that what he has done was pointless, and won't change anything is Cage's plans. He tells Dante that he bombed the grounder allegiance party, with Dante looking in shock. Cage, with what little compassion he has, injects Dante with the bone marrow he needs in order to leave Mount Weather, but still keeps him quarantined.

In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1), he is still quarantined in his room. Cage walks in to ask for advice, but Dante interrupts him and tells him how disappointing it is to see how much he is messed up in only one week as president. Dante, before Cage walks up tells Cage however that the only way to save their people from the "savages", they must allow the grounders to go, but not the Sky People in order to make sure the threat that faces their people is a small one. When Cage returns to thank him, Dante shows no signs of thankfulness or happiness, only terrified at what he has done to the remaining 100.

In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2), Dante remains in his room even after the rest of the Mountain Men travel to Level 5 due to a power outage. Clarke, Bellamy and Monty visit Dante for help in saving their friends who are being harvested for their bone marrow without killing everyone. However, Clarke quickly realizes that Dante is not going to help them which he confirms, stating that they cut the power, risking the lives of everyone in the mountain, including the people that helped them. Clarke insists that they are the good guys, stating that they left the turbine intact so that it could be repaired and that they knew Dante's people would be safe on Level 5. Dante simply asks what would've happened to the Mountain Men if they had released everyone and Clarke decides to get into the command center, dragging Dante along to help them whether he likes it or not.

Traveling the empty halls to the command center, Dante points out that he told them the truth about no one being around and explains that after everything he has done, his people can be free but he can't. Dante explains to Clarke that "deliverance comes at a cost. I bear it so that they don't have to." Bellamy realizes that it was Dante and not Cage who came up with the plan to make a deal with the Grounders which he confirms.

Discovering their friends and family being harvested on the security cameras, Bellamy demands Dante call his people off but he refuses. Clarke instead contacts Carl Emerson and has him give the radio to Cage. Clarke threatens to kill Dante if Cage doesn't let her people go, but Dante simply orders his son to stay the course. Cage refuses to stop with Dante stating that releasing her people would mean the end of his people. Turning her gun on Dante, Clarke begs Cage to not make her kill his father, but Cage reluctantly stays strong, telling Dante that he will take care of their people. Dante tells Clarke that none of them have a choice and both Clarke and Dante affirm that they didn't want this before Clarke shoots Dante in the chest, killing him and holding the radio button down so that Cage can hear it.

Personality Edit

Dante Wallace was the President of Mount Weather. He was calm, nice and also a painter like Clarke Griffin. He was very understanding, but still harbored secrets. He has shown compassion to the 48, as he sees them as good people, unlike the Grounders, who die for the mountain men's needs. However, when he betrays the delinquents, it shows that he cares more about his own people than anything.

Physical Appearance Edit

He has white hair and dark blue eyes. He always seems to wear a dirty suit and his fingers are usually covered in paint.

Relationships Edit

Clarke Griffin Edit

Though Dante says he only wants to keep her and her friends safe, Clarke does not trust Dante or anything he says. She believes that Dante only wants to use the 100, and this is helped when she sees all of the grounders in cages. When speaking with Jasper, Dante tells him that he only wanted Clarke to feel welcome and safe at Mount Weather.

Cage Wallace Edit

Cage Wallace is Dante's son. Dante believes his son has the potential to do good for Mount Weather, so much that he made him top of security. There is also a sense of distrust towards Cage, as he believes that he might have been behind the radiation leak that injured Maya Vie. This distrust is proven when Cage usurps his father's power and grabs the Presidency for himself, locking his father up in quarantine. Dante becomes greatly disappointed in Cage's leadership and even goes so far as to help Bellamy Blake irradiate Level 5 to help the imprisoned Delinquents. Dante eventually realizes it has come down to a choice between his people and the Sky People and he tells Cage to stay the course, sacrificing himself so Cage might have a chance to save the Mountain Men.

Lorelei Tsing Edit

At first, Dante and Dr. Lorelei Tsing appear to be on good terms, however, their relationship appears to sour after Dante disagrees with Dr. Tsing about harvesting the 47 Delinquents and forbade her from going ahead with her trials, only accepting volunteers instead of forcing them. She goes behind Dante's back and, along with Cage Wallace, she continues with her trials until Dante discovers her disobedience and orders her to be locked up. Dante is later removed from office and taken into quarantine by Cage, allowing Dr. Tsing to continue with her trials.

Quotes Edit

Dante to Clarke Griffin: "Welcome to Mount Weather."
Dante to Clarke Griffin: "56 years ago. For 5 minutes. I was 7 when the first of what we call the outsiders appeared. Before that, we thought we were all there was. Imagine our surprise.... My father, this was his office at the time, believed it meant that the Earth was survivable again, and so, he opened the doors. Within a week, 54 people were dead from the exposure. My mother and sister among them."
-- The 48

Dante Wallace: "Don't play with me son. What will it take to stay?"
Cage Wallace: "Bone marrow...all that they have."
Dante Wallace: "They'll die so that we can finally live."
Cage Wallace: "This is our world. We deserve this."
Dante Wallace: "We are the keepers of history. What we've done to the outsiders have corrupted our legacy. I can't go down that road any further."

Notes and Trivia Edit

  • In addition to being the President, Dante is also a painter.
  • Due to the lack of sunlight, Dante and the Mountain Men lack a normal level of melanin in their skin, making them appear paler.
  • Although Dante is referred to as President, he holds a role that is more like a patriarch.
    • A patriarchy is when power is passed down through family members. Dante received the position after his father, as did Cage.
  • Dante initially appeared to be the main antagonist of season 2, but it was shown to be his son, Cage Wallace.
  • Dante caused the dissolution of the Sky People and Grounder alliance by freeing all the Grounders imprisoned in Mount Weather since they no longer needed their blood.
  • Dante is one of the few known Mountain Men to receive the bone marrow transplant that allow him to walk on the surface, the others being his son Cage, Carl Emerson and Whitman.
