“Ahoy, Prince Marth, I be Darros, a simple man o' the sea. I've had me fill o' the piratin' life, and now I be lookin' t'start anew. What say ye? Make me yer matey, and I swear t'pull me load.”
—Darros in Shadow Dragon

Darros (ダロス Daros, lit. Daross in the Japanese version) is a playable character from the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem. A member of the Galder Pirates, Darros tires of his job, and is thereafter persuaded by Marth to join his entourage. While he is omitted in Mystery of the Emblem, Darros makes his return to the series in Shadow Dragon.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

Darros was once a crewman of a simple fishing boat until it was besieged by the Galder Pirates. Picking up an axe lying nearby to defend himself from their onslaught, Darros soon came to the realisation that he was not attacked, owing to the fact that the pirates had mistaken him to be a member of their motley. Unwittingly inducted into the ranks of the pirates, Darros thereafter spent the next few years of his life pillaging and plundering for subsistence.

War of ShadowsEdit

Darros is formally introduced in Chapter 2 of Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, where he, upon meeting Marth in Galder Harbor, seizes the opportunity to indicate his interest in joining the prince's entourage, establishing his desire to swear off his dishonest ways as a pirate and start anew on a blank slate. Darros will then aid Marth in ending the War of Shadows, whereupon he will take to the seas, said to depart from the shores of Archanea for the last time.

War of HeroesEdit

In spite of what his epilogue in the previous war suggests, Darros does not actually leave the continent of Archanea for good. He reappears in Chapter 12 of Shin Monshō no Nazo, where he has somehow managed to gain entry into the Flame Barrel. Through his recruitment conversation with Marth, Darros reveals that he has faced tremendous difficulty in fulfilling his dream of restarting life on a clean slate, as his previous occupation as a pirate has severely dampened his prospects, motivating many a member of society to ostracise and outcast him. Darros thereafter reverted to his pirating ways, albeit reluctantly due to being left with no other choice. Urged to join Marth's army, Darros does so eagerly, and he will thereafter aid him in ending the War of Heroes. The conclusion of the war sees Darros finally being able to turn over a new leaf, as he manages to find honest work in Altea.

PersonalityEdit

As is the case with a majority of the cast in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi and Mystery of the Emblem, Darros' personality is not well developed, owing to the minor role that he plays. Through the few interactions that he engages in, however, one can, nevertheless, deduce several traits that define his character.

Through his decision to swear off the dishonest work of a pirate and instead lead a life that is free of vice, for one, Darros can be perceived to be a courageous, honourable individual, willing to break free from that which he is accustomed to in order to atone for the heinous activities that he has once indulged in.

Darros' base conversations with the Avatar in Shin Monshō no Nazo further sheds light on his past life as a pirate, where it is revealed that he has the tendency to be rather obsessive when it comes to performing any task he is assigned, regardless of whether they are menial or not. The first conversation that he shares with the Avatar, for one, sees him cleaning an unnamed location rather excessively, to the point where the Avatar remarks that they are unable to detect any sign of flaws in his work.

OverallEdit

In Shadow Dragon, Darros is a unit that should not be overlooked. His sheer Strength, combined with the mighty power of axes, makes him one of the strongest units in the games that he appears in. However, one should pay attention to his Skill and Speed; while he starts out with decent Speed, his 10% growth almost ensures that it will not increase any higher, while his low base Skill is not helped by the low 20% growth. However, a Secret Book and Speedwing may help offset these low stats and allow Darros to hit more frequently and possess more Attack Speed for evading purposes.

EndingEdit

Fire Emblem: Shadow DragonEdit

Seawalker

"It was back to the sea for Darros, by all accounts; carefree, he departed Archanea’s shores for the last time."

Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~Edit

Seawalker

"Darros never succumbed to his pirating ways, and instead found honest work in Altea."

QuotesEdit

Death QuotesEdit

“Arr... So this be the end...”
—Death quote in Shadow Dragon

Trivia Edit

  • If the player reclasses Darros into a class that doesn't wear any headgear of sorts, they can discover that Darros does not have any hair.
