Dar Daru was a new born dragon when found in a cavern by Kiru, the king of the Katran Kingdom at the time, and have him raised by one of his liutenants as a human. On his death bed Kiru, for the fear that Dar Daru might lose control and destroy the Kingdom in the future, made the dragon promise to protect the Kingdom forever, using his true name. This “vow” cursed Dar Daru to live forever but also forced him to respect his duty of slaughtering any enemy of the Kingdom, even against his will. This continued for a millenia until Zeed convinced Dar Daru to tell him his true name, after which Zeed proceded to destroy and gave Dar Daru the new name Darian, thus becoming his new master and posing an end to the thousand year old curse.
Name: Ruda(fake human name), Dar Daru(dragon name), Dizmus(previous true name), Darian(current true name)
Classification: Dragon Lord
Age: 994 years old
DC/AP: Island level + (even before becoming a dragon lord he was more powerful than Sid Sier who has destroyed a couple islands)
Durability: Island level + (can take hits from Regi Rugas who is as powerful as Dar Daru)
Speed: Sub-relativistic (should be comparable to Gyel Balchad)
Powers/Abilities: Superhuman charateristics, Flight, Longevity, Immortality/ Regeneration, Poison/Curse manipulation, Healing Negation, Death Manipulation, Fire Manipulation, Dimensional BFR, Shapeshifting, Presence Detection, Magic Nullification, Long Distance Teleport Negation, Magic Detection, Memory Manipulation, Heart Sharing / All previous abilities except Immortality (as Darian)
Resistance to: Poison, Mind Manipulation
Stamina: Unlimited (due to the curse) / High (as Darian)
Weaknesses: Forced to obey anyone he tells his true name to / As Darian the regeneration is much weaker than before
Sid Sier destroyed a couple islands just out of fear of passing fishing boats:
Memory Manipulation: After discovering that Kiru was part of the expedition that killed Dar Daru’s mother she attacks him, but she can’t come to kill the person she loves so she tells him her true name, in this way Kiru orders her to erase her own memories:
Immortality/Regeneration: On his death bed, Kiru made Dar Daru promise to protect the Katran Kingdom forever using her true name, that cursed the dragon to an eternal life of killing the enemies of the Kingdom, not even suicide could free her from the curse:
Along immortality, Dar Daru’s curse grant him high speed regeneration. Zeed stated that Dar Daru was like “a moving mass of energy that has a healer with infinite power” and that he would heal instantly even to the slightest damage(see “Dar Daru vs Zeed Toven and Daz Mcdowell”). In the same fight it's also reveled that Dar Daru's immortality is backed up by Ket, the Goddess of Light who created the world and made Dar Daru its counterbalance. About other feats for regeneration see "FIGHTS"
Even without the curse, black dragons have regeneration as demonstrated by Elda who, despite only being partially a black dragon, regenerated from having her heart sliced in half:
Poison/Curse Manipulation + Healing Negation: Dar Daru’s body emits a poisonous aura who infects anyone around him/her. While it is called a poison it was explained to be more akin a curse and therefore impossibile to cure:
The poison/curse seems to have a much stronger effect while in dragon form and can kill the opponent in combact even if the latter doesn’t receive any direct injury (see “Dar Daru vs Daz Mcdowell”).
Fire Manipulation: Dar Daru can breath fire. The breath also contains poison (see “Dar Daru vs Regi Rugas”)
Death Manipulation: After Ket upgraded Dar Daru from dragon to dragon lord he obtained a Death Eye on his forehead. With this Dar Daru can instantly kill anyone he sees with the eye just by commanding them to die. It works on dragons as demostrated on Zeed, taking away his remaining extra life(for contest Zeed was using a magic that takes the death for him as seen from the red circle on his arm breaking) and even affects undeads like Daz Mcdowell (after he became a dead knight), although on the latter it seemed to have a reduced effect and only made Daz’s body slowly lose costitution (see “Dar Daru vs Zeed Toven and Daz Mcdowell”).
It can be used in human form as well. Demonstrated against Gyel Balchad but interrupted by a command from Zeed:
Magic Nullification: After obtaing the Death Eye Dar Daru can use the spell ‘Mana Cancel’ to nullify magic of others. Used it the first time on Zeed breaking multiple layered spells from the latter all at once (see “Dar Daru vs Zeed Toven and Daz Mcdowell”).
Dimensional BFR: After obtaing the Death Eye Dar Daru can open a portal to the Underworld where eldrich abominations will then grab and drag the opponent inside (see “Dar Daru vs Zeed Toven and Daz Mcdowell”).
Used the same move on the great devil Gerumun to save Zeed:
Resistance to poison: Black dragons are naturally resistant to poison. Even Elda, who’s only partially a black dragon(as a human who inherited Dar Daru’s blood), can endure poison that no other living thing could:
Resistance to mind manipulation: It was stated that mind magic woudn’t have worked on Lom because of Dar Daru’s poison, therefore the same would apply to Dar Daru himself as his body his full of the same poison:
HungryWorld: Came back from my vacation. Took a present with me: sickness
Jan 7, 2020 13:49:59 GMT
Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.
Jan 7, 2020 21:57:05 GMT
Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.
Jan 7, 2020 21:57:42 GMT
Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.
Jan 7, 2020 22:15:55 GMT
Master Menos: Dream: I've always been a PC guy anyways. (Yeah, that was funny!)
Jan 8, 2020 4:09:50 GMT
Master Menos: Sidebar updated! Taka: My turn to scratch your back, Taka. 2019 me got really messed up with the job. @_@
Jan 8, 2020 4:53:59 GMT
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.
Jan 9, 2020 4:50:29 GMT
Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!
Jan 19, 2020 20:44:07 GMT
Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...
Jan 19, 2020 22:49:15 GMT
Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
