Darius is a character in The Owl House. He is one of the nine Coven Heads, being the leader of the Abomination Coven.

Appearance

Body

Darius is a tall, muscular man with dark brown skin, bright green eyes, and purple hair. He has an amorphous hair bun with an abomination's eye, and similarly amorphous sideburns and a goatee. Using abomination magic, Darius can change his form to become a large abomination with multiple eyes with black scleras and lime green pupils all over his body.

Clothing

He wears a dark purple chest plate with a gold collar and pointed shoulders, light purple pants, white mid-length gloves, and white-heeled boots with purple toes. He also wears a pink side cape.

In "Hunting Palismen", he wore a white cape with the Abomination Coven sigil on the neck over his current outfit.

Personality

Darius is very posh and takes pride in his appearance. He hates getting dirty to the point where he would care more about someone getting him dirty than any actual crimes they may have committed. He is also rather rude, even towards his allies, as shown when he called Eberwolf "mutt" after they crawled over him.

He is highly critical of Abomatons and thinks Alador Blight is a hack, despite the latter being in his coven, a sentiment Alador returns in kind.

However, he also has a softer side. While he is prideful of his position, he is also one to appreciate those who make friends and don't dedicate their entire lives to their job, as he believed Hunter did. After realizing Hunter wasn't as he thought he was, he was willing to keep Flapjack a secret from the Emperor, as well as provide a scroll for the boy to allow him access to social media. He was also willing to take unwilling recruits back home instead of to coven training after they were scouted.

Background

Darius (far left) depicted on the Abomination Coven banner

Darius is a graduate of Hexside School of Magic and Demonics and a former classmate to his rival, Alador Blight; he attended Hexside around the same time as Eda Clawthorne.[1] He was also present on the day Eda forfeited her Emperor's Coven tryout match with Lilith Clawthorne, in addition to the day Alador won the Bonesborough Brawl. At some point in the past, Darius was mentored by the previous Golden Guard.[2]

As Head Witch of the Abomination Coven, Darius is an integral part to Emperor Belos' plans and is tasked with inducting members into the Abomination Coven.[3] However, he is wary of the Day of Unity and later finds out that the newly-appointed Head Bard, Raine Whispers, shared his sentiments. In order to ally with them, Darius and Head Beast Keeper Eberwolf set up a ruse to capture the Bards Against the Throne with the intention of secretly teaming up with them.

The two head witches manage to capture three of the five BATs, but missed Raine, forcing them to continue their search. Much to Darius' dismay, the search gets much dirtier when a pair of magically animated boots kick some mud on him. As his patience grows thin, Darius uses his magic to transform into an abomination-like form as he continues his search while Eberwolf assumes a more beastial form and summons a ratworm. At first, they get stopped by the decaying effects of Raine's bard magic and Eda's curse, but after Raine stops Eda from continuing their duet, the two Head Witches manage to capture the Head Bard. While Darius and Eberwolf are distracted, Raine escapes, but gets captured yet again by Kikimora and the Abomaton 2.0. Darius expresses his disapproval of Abomatons in general and tells Kikimora to tell Alador Blight that he is a "hack".[4]

Darius later reveals to Raine that their capture was merely an elaborate ruse, and even helped them avoid imprisonment. He, Eberwolf, and Raine continue to plan against the Emperor, all while fulfilling their duties as Coven Heads in order to avoid suspicion.

Powers and abilities

  • Magic: As a witch, Darius is able to use magic. Like most witches, his connection to magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to his heart. Having earned the rank of coven leader, he is undoubtedly very powerful.
    • Abomination magic: As the leader of the Abomination Coven, Darius can cast spells that allow him to create and control abominations.
      • Abomination teleportation: Darius can transport other people to faraway places, such as the Conformatorium, using abomination slime. He can also use abomination slime to teleport himself over short distances.
      • Abomination constructs: Darius can use abomination slime to create solid constructs, such as spikes and swords.
      • Abomination transformation: Darius can transform himself (either his whole body or just parts of it) into an abomination-like form that greatly increases his size and strength.
      • Remote communication: He can use small abomination golems to deliver messages on paper and apparently also relay sound and visuals back to him.
