Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don’t have any, is there a reason?
Dino became the Cavallone boss about the same age as Tsuna, which is around 14 years old. In the world of the Cosa Nostra, children are considered weak and vulnerable, and that was what essentially Dino was 8 years prior.
His subordinates kept him in close watch because of this; imagine 24/7 365 days of surveillance. They couldn’t risk the life of their new boss who was barely an adult, and barely acted like a real leader; but this child was also the only hope that will deliver them from ruin.
He tried, of course. Dino tried exponentially hard. He was under Reborn’s tutelage then, and the Arcobaleno provided him with every essential knowledge to succeed as Cavallone Decimo, with much awarded success. Still, even when he grew up to a considerable and fit age, his subordinates couldn’t brush off the routine, and the mindset of protecting him, mainly because that’s what they’ve been doing for the past 8 years. Oftentimes, Dino finds himself in no real line of danger, but when the battle increases in difficulty, even the king of the board must make its move.
He’s gotten wounds in various places, all but healed, of course, though some left with scarring. It wasn’t after his first major scar did his subordinates learn to consider his battle strength, take him seriously and let him participate in fights. The largest one he’s gotten was from a stab to his right side; even so, he managed to prevent his own blood loss and continued to battle. Thanks to his financial wealth, skin imperfections aren’t much of a problem for this mafia boss.
