A.I.-11, Darius was a cybernetic life form hailing from the Acheron. Darius belives that he was from Earth and was simple farmer who was abducted by aliens. His next memory was that he awoke on barren planetoid, orphaned, and found his way to Cairn.
He was recuited into the R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. along with Amon Hakk, Borb Borbb, Bertron Diib, Davroth Catto, Ig'nea, Jiv Reduu, Lydea Mallor and Zena Moonstruk. He helped battle the rogue Jiv Reduu when he was rejected from the team and he began murdering the other R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S.
Darius was a loyal and selfless memeber of the L.E.G.I.O.N.. He was also the first recruit to die in battle. One of his fellow recruits, Ig'nea was revealed to be a traitor work for her father Maximillian G'odd, who succeeded in making Vril Dox II disband the L.E.G.I.O.N.. After she was defeated she had amassed an army of super-mercenaries. One of them, Varkan delivered a blow that beheaded Darius. Before he shut down, Darius asked Borb Borbb to return him to his homeworld, to his maker.
Back at the L.E.G.I.O.N. base Bertron has to remove his robotic head from Lobo's bike, as he was using it as an ornament. TheR.E.B.E.L.S. asked Vril Dox II to help them discover his origin. Vril Dox II found a chip in his head and commented that its "life-sim" circuitry was better than even that of Colu. Vril Dox II recommended that they travel to the planet Acheron, which was rumoured to be a haven of cybernetic science.
The planet exisited on the of galactic civilization a single fortress. Because of the fortress' winged defenders, the recruits landed outside the complex but soon found their way in. Upon their entry, a swarm of small androids immediately recognized Darius and began to repair him.
It was revealed that Mardok was his creator. Darius was Mardok's first project and he helped his maker with successive projects. But where Mardok considered his creations expendable, Darius cared for the outcasts. His mind was earased by Mardok and he was banished to a near by ateroid that when he found his way to Cairn.
Darius confronted his creator aand after he threatened all the robotic creations, so Darius kills him. After that the cybernetic life has no purpose so he remains behind to lead and guide them
