This article contains plot details and potential spoilers for the Caraval series. If you have not begun reading the books or are not too far into the story, please do refrain from reading.

Legend is the master of Caraval. He is first introduced when Scarlett Dragna begins to write him to come to their Island to perform for her sister Donatella's birthday.


Legend is described to be "uselessly pretty" he has ink covering his hands and up his arms, he also has ink across his chest and back. He has full lips, a strong jaw, and coal-dark eyes sheltered by thick, dark brows. Legend smells like ink, he has a rose tattoo on his palm. After the events of Legendary he has a six-pointed star branded on his wrist.



Caraval master Legend is a seemingly magical character in the novel Caraval. His story seemingly starts off as any story: with love. He wanted to be a famous magician and Caraval master, to save up enough money to be able to marry the love of his life. He went to a witch, who told him she could grant one wish, to either be able to marry her or to have a legendary Caraval. He could have one, but not the other. He thought if he was famous, his girlfriend would love him even more and therefore chose to be famous. But when that wish was granted, he was no longer the same man. She didn't love the man he had become, and she ended things with him and married another man.


In Legendary, it is later revealed that the witch that Legend visited to gain his magical powers also sealed The Fates in the Deck of Destiny. She took half their magic as well, so that even if The Fates returned, they would be weakened. The magic she took from The Fates is the same she used to grant Legend's wish. She warned Legend that if The Fates ever managed to break the seal, they would search for and kill Legend to retrieve their magic. Knowing that Legend would want to keep his powers, she used him to ensure that The Fates would not be able to gain their powers back should they ever return. Her plan was that in order to keep his magic, Legend would eventually destroy The Fates or be destroyed by them, taking his magic with him.

At the end of Legendary, it is revealed that Legend is Dante.

Early Life: Edit

Dante is a troubled character who cannot be labelled as good or bad. From the start, young Dante’s childhood was not pleasing, his father an alcoholic and his mother a lowly criminal that, “spent a night with his father just to steal one of his possessions”, as said in the book Legendary. His father, ashamed, then tried to sell innocent Dante to a noble family on the other side of the world. Either luck was firmly on or against his side, he was kept captive on a ship that held no survivors, but let him live after he amused them with saying he was a runaway prince. He then joined a talentless group that he turned into Caraval.



  • Legend's other name, Dante, means enduring.[1]
