The Vie de Marli's Clan is a clan located in Vie de Marli charged with the duty to safeguard the island from would-be evil entities and once sided with Sparda in a conflict.[1]


Before Devil May Cry 2Edit

The clan was formed long ago when Dumary Island was founded. Many people with different beliefs, languages, and culture came together and merged themselves with the intention of coexisting peacefully due to their common belief of being pagan. As time passed, all their belief began merging into one.[2]

Battle with ArgosaxEdit

Several centuries ago, the clan summoned Sparda as an ally to help defeat the king known as Argosax the Chaos, who was worshiped and ruled the Demon World. Sparda defeated Argosax and prevented him from entering the human world, sealing him using the four relics known as the Arcana.[3]

Devil May Cry 2Edit

In the current era, when Arius, the president of Uroboros, begins collecting the Arcana relics for his selfish gains and turns the land into a paradise for demons, the Protector known as Matier summons Dante for assistance[1]

Protectors in the ClanEdit

Members of the clan are called "Protectors" (or Guardians)[2] and are sworn to safeguard Vie de Marli , uphold peace between each of the townsfolk on Dumary Island, and secure the shrines in which contain the Arcana.These Protectors are trained by their own into their various duties and can even include members who are not part of the clan by blood.[1]
