Dante Angelo Falconeri (son with Sonny Corinthos)
Olivia Falconeri came to Port Charles from Bensonhurst in 2008, at the request of her ex-lover, Sonny Corinthos. Sonny was marrying Olivia's cousin, Kate Howard (real name: Connie Falconeri). Kate had left her family and changed her identity in order to pursue a career in fashion. She set up shop for her new magazine, Crimson, in Port Charles. Both Connie and Olivia dated Sonny in high school. Unbeknownst to Sonny, Olivia gave birth to Sonny's child, Dante Angelo. In order to save him from Sonny's mob lifestyle, she never told her family the identity of the father, and Sonny never found out. The only one who knows the truth is Kate.
Olivia does come to Port Charles to be maid of honor in Kate's wedding to Sonny, though the cousins hadn't been in contact for twenty years. While staying at the MetroCourt Hotel, she met Sonny's ex-wife, Carly, and Carly soon learned that the uppity Kate was not from a privileged family in Connecticut, but a Bensonhurst girl.
Olivia's and Kate's Roots
Carly Jacks, Sonny's ex. Olivia told Carly who she was and revealed to Carly that Kate's real identity is Connie Falconeri and that she hails from Bensonhurst, not Connecticut.
Olivia gave Kate a necklace on the day of her wedding - a necklace worn by all Falconeri women on their wedding day. Kate said that it did not match her gown and refused to wear it, causing a huge argument before the wedding. Olivia wore the necklace herself. Kate was shot at the altar, and Olivia stayed in Port Charles to help her heal.
Olivia Learns the Truth about Sonny
Olivia eventually realized that Sonny was not honest with Kate - that in reality, he had not left the mob. Kate accused Olivia (as she has over and over) of being jealous of her relationship with Sonny. Kate also continually argues with Olivia that Sonny should know about his son, but Olivia has begged Kate to keep silent.
Olivia had a May-December relationship with Johnny Zacchara, but the relationship ended. She then started to date Steve Webber. That relationship became complicated with the release of his mother, Heather Webber, from a mental institution. She caused a rift between Steve and Olivia because it was clear to Olivia that Heather was manipulative and far from well, and Steve wanted to think the best of his mother.
Heather, known for getting rid of people in her way, gave Olivia LSD, which at present has put her in the hospital. Olivia's hallucinations have proved prophetic, and at this time, she remains in General Hospital.
Olivia has decided, for the moment anyway, to set down some roots in Port Charles. She has taken a job at the MetroCourt as Jasper Jacks' assistant. During the hospital crisis, she tried to help the infected Kate find the DVD that she took from Sonny's house, which proves that Sonny's wife Claudia is responsible for the shooting of Sonny's son Michael.
Olivia's son, Dante, appears in Port Charles working undercover and using another name. He goes undercover with the mob. He tries to arrest Sonny but Sonny, unaware of his true identity, shoots him. Since then, Dante has walked a fine line as an officer of the law and his father's attempted to forge a bond between them.
