You befriended them? And then you disobeyed me to protect them? [...] I'm impressed. I had you all wrong. You're, what, sixteen? It's about time you made connections outside the castle.

Darius Deamonne[1] is a supporting character of The Owl House. He is one of the nine Coven Heads, having served as the Head Witch of the Abomination coven, prior to the dismantling of the Coven system. Darius is also secretly a member of the Covens Against the Throne, a group formed by Raine Whispers to stop Emperor Belos' intiating the "Day of Unity".

Appearance[]

Body[]

Darius is a tall, muscular man with dark brown skin, bright green eyes, and abomination-like hair. He has an amorphous hair bun with an abomination's eye, and similarly amorphous sideburns and a goatee. He also has an abomination sigil on his right arm.

Using abomination magic, Darius can change his body's form to become a large abomination with multiple eyes with black scleras and lime green pupils all over his body while being amorphous, and can create weapons using abomination goo.

In his youth, Darius' hair was two tones of dark gray-brown and had not yet developed into its current abomination form.

Clothing[]

He wears a black chest plate with a gold collar, purple studs and pointed shoulders, light purple pants, white mid-length gloves, and white-heeled boots with violet toes. He also wears a magenta side cape with violet details at the edges on the left side of his body.

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

During his time at Hexside, Darius wore the typical gray Hexside uniform with a gold pin and a darker gray cowl, belt, and gray boots which resemble the ones he wears in the present. His sleeves and leggings were orchid, signifying his enrollment into the abomination track.

In the epilogue, Darius wears a black top, purple shoulder pieces with gold accents, and a pink diamond necklace. He wears black pants with a pink half sash, and a yellow belt with a Titan skull buckle. Darius also has white bracelets and white boots with gold buttons and purple toe caps.

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 he 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 Penstagram, a social media platform for the Boiling Isles. He was also willing to take unwilling recruits back home instead of to coven training after they were scouted.

Unlike most of the other Coven Heads, Darius is not easily tricked and/or delusional, as he never quite believed Belos' claims about the success and prosperity promised by the Day of Unity, prompting him to try to discover more about it, eventually leading him to ally himself with Eberwolf and Raine.

According to Dana Terrace, his priorities are "to help people and to care for those that he loves."[2]

Background[]

Covens - 002

Darius (far left) is 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.[3] He was also present on the day Eda forfeited her Emperor's Coven tryout match with Lilith,[4] in addition to the day Alador won the Bonesborough Brawl.[5] At some point in the past, Darius was mentored by the previous Golden Guard, who he held in high regards.[6]

Questioning the Day of Unity[]

Hunting Palismen - 046

Darius and other Head Witches getting a sneak peek at the Day of Unity.

As Head Witch of the Abomination Coven, Darius is an integral part of Emperor Belos' plans and is tasked with inducting members into the Abomination Coven.[7] However, he is wary of the Day of Unity and later finds out that the newly appointed Head Witch for the Bard coven, Raine Whispers, shared his sentiments. In order to ally with them, Darius and the Head Witch of the Beast Keeping coven, Eberwolf, set up a ruse to capture the Bards Against the Throne with the intention of secretly teaming up with the BATs.

Eda's Requiem - 788

Darius and Eberwolf searching for the Bards Against the Throne.

The two Head Witches manage to capture three of the five BATs, but miss 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 bestial form and summons a ratworm. At first, they get stopped by the decaying effects of 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 inform Alador that he's a "hack."[8]

Darius later reveals to Raine that their capture was merely an elaborate ruse, even helping them avoid imprisonment. He, Eberwolf, and Raine continued to plan against the emperor, all while fulfilling their duties as Coven Heads in order to avoid suspicion.[9]

Changing opinions on Hunter[]

Any Sport in a Storm - 083

Darius telling Hunter that he must earn the sigil of the Golden Guard.

After Belos cannot make it to a meeting of the Coven Heads, Darius and the other Head Witches walk out, despite Hunter's protests. As Hunter tries to get him to stay, Darius simply brushes him off, telling him the meeting was rescheduled. Seeing the poor stitching of the original Golden Guard sigil, he takes his cloak, telling the teenager earn it by finding new recruits for the Emperor's Coven. As he is relaxing on his day off, Hunter calls the irritated Darius by a crow phone that he found potential recruits, causing him to send coven scouts to Hexside.

Any Sport in a Storm - 1612

Darius complementing Hunter on finally acting his age.

Darius arrives at the police precinct and takes Willow, Gus, Skara, and Viney with him. As he flies, Hunter ambushes him to free the teenagers and stops Darius from harming them, allowing the Hexside students to walk free. After he berates Hunter, Darius congratulates the boy on gaining a rebellious streak, repairs his cape, and gives him a scroll for Penstagram, so he can communicate with other children around his age.[6]

Preparing for the Day of Unity[]

Hollow Mind - 091

Darius, Raine, and Eberwolf attempting to infiltrate Belos' mind.

As the Day of Unity draws near, Darius gains knowledge that the day is actually going to hold a Draining Spell that will kill all witches and demons with sigils. He shares this information with Raine.[3] As he, Raine, and Eberwolf try to infiltrate Belos' mind, Hunter finds them, unaware of the identities of the three, and he attempts to arrest them. However, Luz interrupts him, causing the two to accidentally send themselves into Belos' mindscape instead. Darius, Eberwolf, and Raine then go to the Owl House and secretly deliver ingredients to Eda so she can get Luz and Hunter to safety.[10]

Clouds on the Horizon - 267

Darius and the CATs planning how to stop the Day of Unity.

After Eda and Luz are arrested, Darius, Eberwolf, and the CATs free them and take them to their headquarters after meeting up with Lilith, Hooty, King, and Steve.[9] They form a plan to have Eda masquerade as Raine, who is positioned between him and Eberwolf, and for Eda branded with a Bard Coven sigil so that her curse can disrupt the Day of Unity. Upon learning that Luz wants to free Amity, Darius assigns Hunter to help her.[11]

King's Tide (2178)

Darius and the other Head Witches suffer the effects of the Draining Spell.

When they arrive, Belos places Eda disguised as Raine between Terra Snapdragon and Adrian Graye Vernworth. As Terra's suspicions are fulfilled, Adrian cancels the illusion and a brief fight breaks out, with Darius, Eda, Raine, and Eberwolf fighting a losing battle against the other Coven Heads. Darius duels the head of the Potions Coven, Vitimir. When Eberwolf is threatened by the head of the Healing Coven, Hettie Cutburn, Darius is forced to stop fighting. They are held in place until the Draining Spell activates, causing the Head Witches to be drained of their magic and life essence. Hunter and his companions arrive, and he desperately shakes at Darius, but he doesn't wake. However, Darius and every witch with a sigil are soon saved when the Collector stops the eclipse and the Draining Spell with a flick of his finger.[12]

Post Day of Unity[]

For the Future - 2451

Darius and the other Coven Heads, save for Terra, as puppets guarding Eda.

However, he and the other Coven Heads, except Terra, are turned into puppets and placed in the Archive House to guard Eda, who is believed to be trapped in her owl beast form, attacking her if she tries to escape.

Watching and Dreaming - 4635

Darius greeting Hunter after Belos is defeated.

Months later, after Belos is defeated, he and Eberwolf greet Hunter, and Hunter tells them about his time in the Human Realm. As Darius and Eberwolf are looking at the newly risen left arm of the Titan, they notice Terra, Adrian, and Vitimir heading toward the throne. Surmising that they will attempt to re-establish the monarchy, the two put a stop to their plans, and Darius attacks when Vitimir touches the throne.

Epilogue[]

Watching and Dreaming - 5332

Darius and other members of the team watching an attempt to remove a Coven Sigil.

Four years later after Belos' defeat, Darius works with Alador, Eberwolf, Raine, and various younger witches researching methods of removing Coven Sigils, which they eventually succeed in doing. He shakes Alador in excitement before collecting himself and, shortly afterward, greets Hunter when he arrives. Darius later attends Luz's belated quinceañera and watches as the Collector puts on a light show for the occasion.

Relationships[]

Hunter[]

Any Sport in a Storm - 1615

Darius encouraging Hunter to act more like a teenager.

Originally, Darius saw Hunter as a privileged teenager who got where he is solely through connections. He also looked down on Hunter as he was too eager to follow Belos' orders. However, after Hunter freed the Emerald Entrails from his custody and blocked him from hurting them, Darius started to change his opinion on Hunter.

After a failed attempt to enter Belos' mind, Darius is shocked to learn Hunter has entered the emperor’s mind, and he, Raine, and Eberwolf anonymously give Eda ingredients to get Hunter and Luz out.

After Belos is defeated, Darius approaches Hunter and welcomes him back to the Boiling Isles. After the time-skip, Darius and Hunter are shown to be close, with Darius ruffling Hunter's hair.

Alador Blight[]

Darius and Alador Season 3 Episode 3

Alador and Darius after discovering a way to remove Coven Sigils.

In their school days, Darius and Alador were close friends. However, in their adult years, the two men would become distance each other. Darius would call Alador a hack as Alador scoffs at a book the former published.

Years after Belos is defeated, the two work together as part of a team looking for a way to remove Coven Sigils. After they succeed, he shakes Alador in excitement before catching himself, showing that the two have made up and are now close and affectionate again.

Eberwolf[]

Clouds on the Horizon - 482

Darius and Eberwolf heading to the Draining Spell in an attempt to stop it.

Out of all the other coven heads, aside from Raine, Darius spends most of his time with Eberwolf, seeing him as an ally. The two confided in each other about their uncertainty of the Day of Unity and even worked together to stop it before learning of the existence of the Bards Against the Throne.

However, the two do not always get along, as Eberwolf purposely annoys him by turning up the volume of his scroll, after he tells him to turn it down.

As the eclipse is about to start and their plan is revealed, Darius joins Eberwolf in fighting the other coven heads. He only stops after Hettie Cutburn and Osran threaten to hurt Eberwolf, showing that Darius cares for his well-being.

After Belos is defeated, they work to stop the other Coven Heads from taking the throne, ensuring the old system never reforms.

Raine Whispers[]

O Titan, Where Art Thou - 1357

Darius teasingly explaining how he learned that he and Raine were both suspicious of the Day of Unity.

Out of all the coven heads, aside from Eberwolf, Darius is closest with Raine. After learning they shared his view of the Day of Unity, Darius created a ploy to make it look like the rebellion was crushed while he and Eberwolf secretly worked with the rebellion.

After informing Raine that he and Eberwolf shared their suspicions, the three would work together to put a stop to the Day of Unity, even getting information on the Draining Spell. After Luz and Hunter were trapped in Belos' mind, he stopped Raine from revealing the group to Eda too early. When the Bards Against the Throne was reworked into the Covens Against the Throne, Raine and the others would mimic the hissing of a cat as their battle cry, much to Darius' annoyance.

Emperor Belos[]

Even though he previously supported and served Belos, Darius was actually against Belos and didn't believe his claims about the Day of Unity merging the Boiling Isles with the Human Realm. He along with Eberwolf set out to find out what the emperor was really up to. He and Eberwolf captured Raine and the BATs in order to win the emperor's trust. However, it was actually a ruse in order to find out what Belos was really up to, he was then shocked to learn that Belos was going to use a Draining Spell that would wipe out all of witchkind and set out to stop him.

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 and a member 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 exoskeleton: Darius can encase himself (either his whole body or just parts of it) in abomination matter, which assumes Darius' shape in 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 also relay sound and visuals back to him.
  • Sewing: Darius is a skilled sewer.
