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.

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:
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
