Darrius is a Seidan terrorist in the Mortal Kombat series, originally appearing in Mortal Kombat: Deception. Known for his large bladed gauntlets, he is the leader of the Seidan Resistance Movement and seeks to liberate his homeworld of Seido from an oppressive regime of law and order.
In Mortal Kombat: Deception, he fought with two fighting styles: Shinto-ryu karate and Bàoquán ("Leopard Fist") kung fu. In Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, this was changed to Gōjū-ryū karate.
While he does not appear in the series' first alternate timeline, he does make an appearance in Mortal Kombat 1, where he is also one of the game's "Kameo Fighters".
Not much is known of Darrius's backstory other than his role as the leader of a resistance band in the Realm of Order, putting him at odds with the Seidan Guard (and its General, Hotaru).
Prior to the events of Mortal Kombat: Deception, he manipulated the noble guardsman Dairou by having his family assassinated, which caused Dairou to kill the assailant in a fit of rage, become imprisoned, and escape as a mercenary. Darrius then contracted Dairou to assassinate Hotaru, with the outcome of the mission never made clear.
Like countless others, he was slain in the Battle of Armageddon.
New Era Timeline
During the events of Mortal Kombat 1, which takes place after a timeline refresh by Liu Kang, Darrius is seen with Havik assisting the sorcerer Quan Chi with his plot.
Darrius manages to steal a prized document of the Seidan government and goes to battle against Hotaru. Despite a costly battle, Darrius and his resistance manage to defeat Hotaru and his men, thus gaining control of the government.
After defeating Blaze, Darrius is given access to the treasure and power that was intended for Taven and Daegon. Though he is finally able to defeat Hotaru using these artifacts, Taven and Daegon are then sent on a quest to defeat Darrius retrieve what is rightfully theirs.
