Human or not human – this is a rather complicated and tricky matter when it comes to V.
V as such is a human being only recently created – and yes it´s created in his case, not born.
“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.
For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.”
His original, former self was Vergil, a human-demon hybrid. Vergil, the eldest of twin sons born of the demon Sparda and human Eva.
Following the murdering of their mother as children, Vergil and Dante, his younger twin brother, go their separate ways, with Vergil rejecting his humanity and embracing his demonic heritage, contrasting his younger brother's embrace of humanity and initial rejection of the demonic.
The believe that back then during the attack that once cost their mother´s life he was left behind deliberately ever since was fueling Vergil´s rage towards and desire to take revenge on and kill Dante.
In order to gain the requisit power to accomplish this task Vergil stabbed himself with his demon sword, attempting to get rid of his “weakness”, the human half of his soul.
Yet instead of killing his humanity he sparked the creation of "V", the personification of the human side of his soul, and the origination of the demon-king "Urizen" the embodinment his demonic and most powerful side.
Immediately after gaining consciousness and witnessing the horrifying formation of Urizen V vowed to stop the imminent large-scale destruction of the human world the now utterly ruthless and evil Demon-king was about to cause in his pursuit of even more power.
Knowing that time was a pressing matter as separation from his original hybrid-self doomed him with a slowly declining human body barely kept together by the lingering remnants of his former demonic power and prone to die rather sooner than later, V turned towards the Devil May Cry Agency, run by Dante, in order to find allies and help with his task
V never expected to come out of this mission alive, not at least due to his frail and constantly deteriorating state – yet when they eventually were able to defeat the Demon-king his death released enough spare energy re-uniting with V hence stabilizing his condition and stopping the decline of his body and allowing him to live on.

This avian demon can always be found somewhere around V, usually flapping his beak with some inappropriate jab.
Differently to the other two familiars he does not need to be summoned but is a constantly present companion to V.
Griffon is roughly the size of a big eagle with a black and dark blue plumage and eyes which hold three golden pupils each.
Usually Griffon attacks with beak and claws but is also able to pick up smaller opponents and hurl them through the air.
He is also capable to lift up and carry V for shorter distances if the situation calls for it.
Griffon is an extremely talkative, foul-mouthed, and wisecracking bird who constantly mocks others.
While not above also playfully teasing V and even playing pranks on him, Griffon is deeply attached to V, constantly worries about his health and usually tries to talk him out of any even possibly remotely dangerous situation.
He often behaves like an over-protective mother-hen, who as often tends to be ignored by his Master much to his own bother.
While not summoned Shadow is concealed within some of the tattoo-like markings along V´s arms.
When conjured he takes the form of a large black panther with red eyes. He sports enormously muscular forelimbs which give him a bulldog-like build and his pitch-black fur features reddish glowing lines pulsating faintly whenever he moves.
He uses his claws, fangs and tail to attack and also allows V to ride on his back for speedy travel or when latter is too exhausted to walk.
Shadow possesses the personality of an attack dog, aggressive yet disciplined and always waiting for V to give the order before he attacks.
Despite actually belonging to a demon species known for being hostile especially towards humans, Shadow is utterly docile around V, never shows pugnacity towards his allies and even can be found asking for a stroke or napping close to his Master.
While not summoned, Nightmare is concealed within the black coloration in V's hair and tattoo-like markings covering his upper body.
He could be considered V´s last line of defense. As summonning Nightmare forces him to unleash and drain his full power V conjures this specific familiar the least often and only in the most dire situations.
Nightmare is a gargantuan pitch-black golem, roughly humanoid in shape but about 3,5meters (about 11 feet) in height and without a distinct head, and bulbous spiked hands resembling tree roots.
When summoned, Nightmare may crash onto the battlefield like a meteorite, or burst through parts of the environment to heed his Master´s call.
Its sluggish movements belie unsurpassable strength and nigh-invulnerability.
Wherever Nightmare appears, its massive fists most probably are the last things enemies ever see.
Nightmare appears to be an automaton designed purely for combat, and exhibits no meaningful personality traits beyond its incredible capacity for destruction and instinct to protect V at any cost.

V is a fairly calm, reticent and aloof individual.
While he is generally polite to everyone, he is also one who usually does not speak more than necessary and prefers to keep rather to himself, a habit which often causes distrust and others to question his reliability.
A distinctive trait of V is his extreme fondness for poetry, noticeable as he often recites lines when speaking to others, and often by memory alone – a habit which earned him the nicknames “Shakespeare” and “Mr Poetry”.
Despite hardly ever showing emotions openly and in an outgoing manner V cares very deeply for those close to him.
Further he has a marked, very dry sense of humor and is not above sparking subtle jokes himself or finding antics around him amusing.
Though most of the time these emotions manifest in an easy to be missed, small, crooked smirk or fleeting smile.
His utterly reserved demeanor combined with his seemingly submissive, hunched stance underlined even by his mannerism of mostly avoiding eye contact when talking to others stands in stark contrast to his otherwise rather noticeable appearance in terms of his body markings and his quirky, antiquated way to express himself including the usage of poetry quotes.
This contradicting appearance and behavior often causes people to find V considerably disconcerting and weird.
Being the embodiment of Vergil´s humanity and conscience, those parts of himself the hybrid repressed and detested the most, V is deeply in touch with his emotions and an utterly introspective being.
V often reflects over his "past self", such as remembering how prideful, ruthless and cruel Vergil was, feeling guilt and remorse in Vergil´s stead for what the hybrid demon did to others.
Yet despite acknowledging himself to be a part of Vergil, V also manages to completely disassociate himself from him.
Unlike Vergil, who looked down on humans and even despised them, V embraces the fact that he is basically human and associates himself with them.
Being fully aware of his limits and capabilities, V is utterly pragmatic and cautious in how he approaches situations.
While confident in his abilities, he is not above confessing when a certain situation would exceed his limits and be too much for him to handle. In such cases he is self-aware enough to either temporarily walk away and call for backup or to leave it to someone else entirely to deal with.
While V indeed is willing to do morally questionable things and even outright lie to and manipulate his allies when it serves his goals and the Greater Good, his whole doing is driven by a genuine desire to cleans the world from evil, atone for Vergil´s wrongdoings and help those in need, even at the cost of his own fragile health.
Being the physical manifestation of Vergil`s humanity and wisdom, V possess all of Vergil's knowledge of the Supernatural World and often reveals that he knows things that no mere human should be familiar with.
This wisdom and vast wealth of knowledge could be considered his greatest weapon.
As he is the human half of Vergil, V only has comparatively little demonic energy left at his disposal compared to his former power.
He still has the ability to sense demonic energy in objects and in beings on close range. Also is able to tell in general when facing a non-human/supernatural being, however if it is not a demon not exaclty what kind at first glance.
Due to the weak and fragile constitution of his human body V barely ever engages directly in a physical fight but relies entirely on his demonic familiars, mostly Griffon and Shadow, in any form of physical struggle or combat.
Albeit they are only able to wound enemies and inflict pain yet cannot kill, leaving the decision about life and death to their Master.
Once enemies have been brought down by his demonic protectors it is on him to perform strong, singular strokes with his cane to finish off their foes for good.
Also, once his familiars have taken too much damage they revert back into their core state concealed within the markings on V´s body and require some time to regenerate before they can be re-summoned.
The cane he commonly uses as his walking aid is equipped with a sharp, pointy, blade like ending and wrought of a unique alloy ideal for channeling demonic energy.
This allows V to use the cane to absorb the power of defeated demons, enhancing the strengths of his familiars and stocking up on his own depleted pool of energy and thus prolonging the time he is able to keep up his fighting stance and his conjurations.
