General

  • Darius is 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 meters) tall and weighs 266 lbs (121 kilograms)
  • Darius was the first champion to have an autonomous Recall.png Recall / Teleport.png Teleport animation.
  • Tahm Kench Tahm Kench says Darius' strength is 'waning' and that he could 'help him slow time's regress'.
    • This and the strands of gray hair on his head suggest Darius is of advanced age.
  • Darius comes from the word dariush (Old Persian: kingly)
  • Darius' abilities had different names while in development.
    • Hemorrhage.png Hemorrhage used to have a movement speed buff called Aggression.
      • It read: "The carnage of war enlivens Darius, increasing his movement speed."

    • Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might used to be called Blood Rage but was renamed by player request.

Lore

  • Darius was in production long before he featured in the Journal of Justice.[1]
    • He doesn't care for titles or privileges, only to serve his empire through his Hemorrhage.png Noxian Might.[2]
      • Darius isn't a crazed, bloodthirsty maniac but more of a cold-blooded killer moving through the battlefield with powerful, precise movements and striking with deadly force where it matters most.
        • He takes pride in combat, but there's no primal bloodlust needing to be sated.
          • Unpredictable sadists don't always make for the best commanders.[3]

Skins

  • Him being Swain Swain's right-hand man implies this is Darius after SwainSquare.png Tyrant Swain [S|L] became Grand General of Noxus.
    • His armor has many a raven motif referencing Beatrice Beatrice, the raven always perched atop Swain Swain's shoulder.
      • His eyes glowing implies either empowerment or mind control (which one is uncertain)

  • His abilities glow green.
    • This and his production name being 'Zaun Knight Darius' implies he was augmented with techmaturgy in a fashion similar to Urgot Urgot's resurrection.

Relations

  • Darius has allied with Swain Swain because he sees in the Master Tactician someone who can make Noxus rise.
    • Their relationship is strictly professional, more chain-of-command than father-son.
      • Darius understands LeBlanc the Black Rose have used deception and trickery to help in Swain Swain's rise but he's concerned about not knowing how deep the rabbit hole goes.
  • In Darius' eyes Sion Necromancy is cheating death to justify one's undeserved continued survival.[4]
    • Yet for him Sion Sion's legacy is an example. But when he gazes upon the Undead Juggernaut, he sees what might become of himself should he no longer be useful (or rather too useful should death come knocking) [5]
  • Darius holds Garen Garen no grudge, he just thinks he's a fool chasing after a meaningless code of 'honor'.
  • Darius and his younger brother Draven Draven are renowned as the 'Blood Brothers'.
    • Family ties are strong and can serve as the basis for one's strength, yet Darius sees self-serving aristocrats using theirs as a crutch for their weakness and as a result the perpetuation of stagnant leadership that needs to be removed and replaced.
      • With this in mind one cannot tell Darius providing and caring for Draven Draven back in their childhood came out of love or even mere pragmatism.
