 Persona History
Born on Erin in Patrick's time to an Irish woman and a marauder with the blood of the fair folk in his veins, Darren took as his surname the epithet his mother's tribe called his father, "Black Bane." Young Darren's wanderings around Europe led him to hone his fae gifts into an accomplished healer's talent; lingering too long in France led to the nickname "D'Arque." Later adopted as a man-at-arms, he took his patron's surname for his own, striving to live up to his knight's talent, his mother's heart and his father's cunning.
