Hell, as seen when Dante and Virgil are requesting the aid of the giant Antaeus in canto XXXI.

Virgil Analysis of Dante Inferno

Virgil also reigns in his proud boasting when he realizes that he actually needs some guardians’ help, from Geryon and Antaeus for example, to complete their journey. To his credit, he also risks his own life (errr, afterlife?) to make sure Dante escapes the demons. As stern as Virgil tries to be, we know that deep down inside, he just wants to share a beer with Dante...
