Brunetto Latini was one of the Damned which Dante must punish or absolve for "The Damned" and "Old Friend" achievement/trophy. If the player punished him, the "Old Friend" achievement would be locked out. He was encountered in the circle of Violence among the Abominable Sands.
A mentor to young Dante, Latini was sentenced to the seventh circle of Hell for sodomy and crimes against nature.
- In The Inferno, Dante encounters the shade of Brunetto Latini within the final round of the seventh circle. Upon recognizing Dante, Brunetto has a lengthy talk with his former pupil. Latini had adopted the young Dante after his father's death, and was known as a great public speaker and scholar, having created one of the first encyclopedias in a European language. He is one of the few shades Dante regards with compassion.
- Evidence of Latini engaging in sodomy as historic fact is ambiguous, and it is possible that Latini is not in Hell as a Sodomite, but for using French in his works instead of Italian, which Dante may have deemed an "unnatural" corruption of writing as art.
