Darrow is a tall man in his thirties, standing a little over six feet tall. He is very strong-looking with dark skin and long jet black hair that is braided into a single thick braid that goes past his waist. He wears partial scale mail across the chest and part of the shoulders and a dull gray leather heavy waistband that's almost a foot thick.
Darrow comes off as friendly, welcoming, and genuine in his interactions with the Mighty Nein. Though his faith keeps him from partaking in some particular vices Darrow seems to revel in the thrill of combat, contrasting with his usual laid-back demeanor.
"Harvest Close" (2x17)
Darrow later competed in The Victory Pit with The Stubborn Stock. The group succeeded with a single knockout in their first battle against a giant crocodile but suffered numerous injuries in the second round against two displacer beasts.
"Whispers of War" (2x18)
Despite suffering many injuries, they managed to defeat their third opponent, a flightless wyvern.
"Lingering Wounds" (2x89)
The Mighty Nein meet Darrow at The Stone Coffin, where he greets them fondly and they discover that he is to be Fjord's opponent in the fight. While Fjord's Armor of Agathys does significant damage to him, Darrow ends up winning by a landslide. He seems to show some remorse that he beat Fjord so thoroughly.
"Bathhouses and Bastions" (2x90)
The Mighty Nein run into Darrow on the way to the Silvered Sunset Oasis and invite him along for a morning of pampering at the spa. He shares that the Stubborn Stock have a new employer but he's not at liberty to say who. He thinks they're probably going to be heading back to the Menagerie Coast.
In the final round of the Victory Pit tournament in Zadash, Darrow along with The Stubborn Stock faced off against a wyvern, which had been purposefully deprived of the ability to fly. During this battle Darrow rushed up with his battleaxe and, slamming into the creature, released a divine flash of radiant energy off of his battleaxe.[clarify]
