Doty, take this down.
Taryon's classic line when he begins dictating

Taryon Gary Darrington is a human artificer, former member of Vox Machina, and founder of the Darrington Brigade. He was played by Sam Riegel.

Official full body portrait of Taryon in 811 PD, by Kit Buss.[art 2]

Taryon is a handsome human male with shoulder-length, feathered, dirty blonde hair. He has blue-green eyes and a well-groomed goatee adorning his dashing smirk. His frame is svelte and he is adorned in a set of polished immaculate breastplate armor that looks to be barely used, with numerous satchels all around him as well as jewelry and adornments. He has a silver helmet that shines with many embedded gems, including diamonds and opals.[19]

Taryon - Aviv Or

By 826 PD (roughly a decade after the Darrington Brigade was first founded), Tary's once-golden hair is cut short and shows signs of graying, but despite being over 40 he always claims he is closer to 33. Taryon's adventuring gear shows signs of use - his golden armor and Rod of Mercurial Form have scuff marks and his Robe of Useful Items have largely been used up, with the used spaces being replaced with commemorative patches like "Kill a Dragon".

Tary's somewhat more youthful appearance is due to his injection of an unspecified "bovine toxin" into his face.[20]


Taryon came from a privileged life, and acts like it. He tends to underestimate the intelligence of the people he meets. He assumed that none of Vox Machina were literate.[21] When Percy asked him how Doty worked, Taryon began by explaining the basic functions of levers, pulleys, and inclines.[22] He did not have high expectations of women at first, referring to Vex as a girl rather than a woman, and speaking of damsels in distress that needed to be rescued. This likely is due to how he did not have many examples of assertive women in his life that did not hit him (like his sister), before this, and the common narratives in his stories.

Tary does not ask for names very often, instead choosing to give (often rude) nicknames to the people he meets.[23]

Tary seems to have a weak stomach, as he is prone to nausea and vomiting when encountering gory or disturbing situations.[24][25][26]

Taryon sees family and love as very important, especially when addressing the lack of both within his own household. He often has fanciful notions of how the world works, and walked into adventuring with the expectation that it would be the same as the storybooks he used as an escape. He is a complete, unapologetic, mama's boy.



Taryon has a great deal of wealth given to him by his father, Howaardt Darrington, who is an upper class businessman and a baron from Deastok, in the Dwendalian Empire.

Between 795-796 PD, when he was 12-13 years old, Tary has seen the Dr. Dranzel's Spectacular Traveling Troupe performing in the Darrington estate, intending to stay there for a few days, but they were forced to leave in a hurry, as, one of their members, Scanlan Shorthalt had an affair with one the family's handmaiden and in an unknown way corrupted Howard Darrington's bed.[27][28]

In early 811 PD, his younger sister Maryanne was set to inherit Darrington's fortune unless Tary can prove himself to his father.[29] The reason his father looked down on him was because his father caught him having a romantic affair with one of his tutors, a man named Lawrence.[30]

And so Tary set out to become a hero,[31] began stylizing himself as "Sir" Taryon Darrington, despite having never been knighted nor having any training as a knight, and went adventuring. He was taraveled with other adventuring groups, for a month or so before meeting Vox Machina, but his companions ended up leaving him behind.[32]

Critical Role[]

Arc 4: Taryon Darrington[]


Fan art of Taryon Darrington calling out to Vox Machina with Doty standing behind him, by Hugo Cardenas.[art 4]

Taryon encountered Vox Machina in Ank'Harel as they were returning Ripley's hand, as they had promised. Though the group was annoyed by Tary's behavior and personality, they decided to accept his offer to be hired into his service at the price of 50,000 gold per day.[33]

Tary initially claimed to have killed a small beholder at some point in the past with help from sell swords, who "took it out into a field and, sort of roughed it up" for Taryon, who then dealt the killing blow to the beast.[34] However, he eventually admitted that he has never been on a real adventure, and he had only been "adventuring" for a month or so before meeting Vox Machina.[35]

Back at Whitestone, some of Vox Machina decided to test Tary's capabilities by attacking him. After only a few rounds, Tary surrendered. He broke down into ugly cries and proclaimed that he was unfit to be an adventurer. When Tary confessed that he was just trying to be an adventurer to prove himself to his father, Vox Machina decided to give him another chance. As they put it, they were won over by his "daddy issues".[36]

Tary accompanied Vox Machina on the last leg of Keyleth's Aramenté. On the journey to Vesrah, the group's ship was attacked by pirates, and Tary successfully killed a marid: his first ever kill.[37]

Later, he accompanied Vox Machina's mission to the Iron City of Dis, in the Nine Hells, in order to permanently kill the rakshasa Hotis. He purchased twenty soul stones at an inn, not knowing what the stones contained and why he felt such a burst of energy after consuming one. When he finally was able to identify the soul stones as receptacles for fragments of "refined soul", he promptly puked, followed shortly by an equally-horrified Keyleth.[38]

After returning from the Nine Hells, Tary further admitted that the reason his inheritance was taken away and his father looked down on him was because his father caught him having a romantic affair with one of his tutors, a man named Lawrence, explaining that he pursued damsels because in all of the books he read, none of the heroes ever had relationships with men. Following this admission, he slept with Trisha and, upon meeting with Pike and Grog the next morning, declared that "women are soft and tender, and... they are not for me".[39] Tary is also unsure whether or not Lawrence is alive or not, but believes it's likely that he's dead because of how his father is.[40]

During the one-year time skip, he became roommates with Vex'ahlia after she finished reconstructing the Third House of Whitestone, her noble manor as a Baroness. The two roommates and Pike eventually went into business together to open a bakery called "The Slayer's Cake". Despite not being much of a baker, Vox Machina enjoyed having him at the bakery and Tary was best known for his blondies.[41]

After Vox Machina dealt with the deception of the Trickfoot family (Pike's relatives), Tary was abducted by a drow bounty hunter named K'ryyn, who had been disguised as a baker seeking employment. The bounty hunter had been paid by Taryon's father, Howaardt, to retrieve Tary and bring him back to the family estate in Deastok. Vox Machina managed to intercept K'ryyn in Wildemount, but Tary decided to return home anyways to finally face his father. Vox Machina decided to accompany Tary as support.[42]

When confronting Howaardt, his father revealed that the Darrington family was in dire financial straits and owed a tremendous amount of money to the Myriad: the local crime syndicate that controlled Wildemount in all but name. Howaardt also revealed that when Tary left home for his "adventure", Tary had stolen the entire family treasury: the true source of Tary's supposed wealth. Howaardt thought he had a solution for their financial problems: a marriage between Tary and Lydia Truscan. Lydia was the only heir to the Truscan Trust, which would give Tary (and by extension, the Darrington family) complete control of the Truscan family's wealth. Howaardt was determined to have Tary marry Lydia. Vox Machina decided to aid the Darringtons by speaking with the Myriad.[43]


Fan art of Taryon Darrington, by advocatingAvian.[art 5]

Vox Machina spoke with a member of the Myriad, Korshad, who agreed to forgive some of the Darringtons' debts in exchange for Vox Machina clearing out an infestation of a Myriad-controlled platinum mine.[44] Vox Machina did so, and Tary and Korshad haggled over the terms. The Myriad would seize the Darrington lands and tax revenue, minus the Darrington Estate itself and enough taxes to provide a reasonable income for the family. Tary also successfully negotiated that the Darringtons would get to keep a small farm adjacent to the Darrington Estate, as a source of crops and food for the family. However, when Tary requested a percentage of the platinum mine's profits, Korshad drew the line.[45]

When Tary informed his family about the deal, Howaardt was furious. After Tary announced his plan to relocate his family to the small farm, and use the Darrington Estate as a home for the poor and the headquarters for the Darrington Family Charity for Wayward Souls (or more simply, the charitable "Darrington Foundation"), an enraged Howaardt threw a chair at the wall. Still convinced that the Darrington family could've been restored to their original prosperity through an alliance with the Truscans, he venomously told Tary, "You should have married that girl!" Tary stood his ground and told Howaardt that the Darrington family was in financial trouble long before Tary stole the family treasury. Tary demanded his father stop blaming Tary for Howaardt's own mistakes. Howaardt broke down into tears and agreed to try Tary's plan. Tary also announced his plan to start a band of adventurers similar to Vox Machina in Wildemount: the Darrington Brigade, led by himself.[46]

Tary announced his decision to return to Wildemount after gathering his things in Whitestone. Before he could return to Deastok, Vox Machina was approached by Lionel Gayheart, who took them to a man named Aes Adon. They quickly discovered that this man was Scanlan Shorthalt in disguise. He had come to Whitestone to tell them of another Ziggurat that had been discovered in Marquet.

Arc 5: Vecna[]

Vox Machina decided to set out for Ank'Harel, with Taryon joining them for one last adventure.[47] He then took his leave and returned to Deastok.

During Vox Machina's fight with Vecna and Delilah Briarwood, Taryon's necklace alerted him about the deaths of Vex'ahlia and Vax'ildan (although he was unaware which members of Vox Machina had died). He clutched the necklace, fell to the floor, and started weeping.[48]

Once the defeat of the Whispered One was known in Wildemount and Taryon learned the details of the battle, as well as Vax'ildan's permanent departure to the Matron of Ravens' domain, he wrote a letter to the rest of Vox Machina, expressing great pride in their triumph, informing them of his own situation with the Brigade, and consoling Vex on the loss of her twin brother.[49]


"Dalen's Closet" (Sx47)
Taryon was present at Vex'ahlia and Percy's wedding. Both the bride and groom argued to have him as their best man; eventually, Percival gave and chose Keyleth instead. Taryon was a little bit confused, and although he had initially written his best man speech for Percival, he adapted it to fit Vex'ahlia.


At some point after the end of Campaign One, Taryon reunited with Lawrence, and the two of them married.

"The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade" (Sx49)
Approximately fourteen years later in 826 P.D., Taryon welcomed new members to the Darrington Brigade and led them on a quest at the behest of Doolan Tversky in search of an item or creature that fell from the sky. The brigade discovered Quackthulhu, a gigantic mutated duck, and felled it. They retrieved the meteor implanted in its back and returned it to Master Tversky.

After the Brigade At some point after "The Chapter Closes" (1x115), Tary (and/or Doty) finished his book and published it in Deastok. Taryon continued to lead the Darrington Brigade for many years, and shared their exploits through several published works. After completing his checklist of adventures, Taryon left his home in the hands of Maryane and Lionel, and began travelling around Wildemount to set up smaller brigades. He then settled in Port Damali with Lawrence, and began writing fiction novels. By 836 PD his most sucessful series was "The Deastok Mysteries", which tell the adventures of a young blonde boy and his robot sidekick solving crimes in Wildemount. Taryon occasionally visits Whitestone to catch up with the rest of Vox Machina. He has built several new versions of Doty, the most recent being Doty X.[50]

As of 843 PD Taryon still lives in Wildemount, according to Lady and Lord de Rolo.[11]


Taryon - Ameera

Fan art of Taryon Darrington, by Ameera.[art 6]

Mariya Darrington[]

Taryon describes his mother as "quiet," and repeatedly mentions how she struggled living with his father. She loves both her children greatly, but seems to be far more like Taryon, enjoying his fanciful books and talking to him about them. Taryon certainly seems to connect to his mother the most out of his family, and cares for her deeply.

Howaardt Darrington[]

Taryon wishes to prove himself to his father, Howaardt, who seems to have a low opinion of his son. At some point Howaardt caught Taryon having a romantic affair with one of his tutors, a man named Lawrence, and he ostracized Taryon from the family, with Lawrence's fate unknown. After being pressed for information by Vox Machina regarding his relationship with his father, Tary admitted to them that he hated him.

Maryanne Darrington[]

Maryanne is Taryon's younger sister, and seems to be the favored child in the family, as she is the one set to inherit their land, property, and wealth. Taryon said that his sister would often hit him. When he was asked if she was still a raging bitch, when he visited her after returning home, he replied by saying that she was not raging, but does not dispute her being a bitch. He does not seem to get along with her well, even as he cares for her safety and well-being.


Lawrence was Taryon's tutor and lover before Taryon was ostracized from his family. It was, in fact, the discovery of this romantic entanglement that led to him being snubbed in favor of his sister. Lawrence is said to be about ten years older than Taryon, who was around twenty when they became attached. When asked by Vox Machina what he was looking for in a potential sexual partner, Taryon replied with "tall, fair, and strong". He uses these same descriptors to describe Lawrence shortly thereafter. In the epilogue, it is stated that Tary eventually found Lawrence again, and the two reconnected. Their relationship "picked up right where it left off".


The Latest Doty - BlackSalander

Fan art of Doty, by BlackSalander.[art 7]

Doty was Taryon's mechanical servant, scribe, and best friend. The human built him when he was 27 years old. Nine other iterations of him were built later, Doty X being the most recent as of 836 PD. According to Tary, Doty 4.0 went rogue and attempted to kill him.

Vox Machina[]

Taryon hired Vox Machina to take him adventuring for the price of fifty thousand gold per day. So far he has paid 16,000 gold in the form of a check, much to Vex'ahlia's displeasure.[51]

Taryon got off to a rocky start with the band of adventurers, as his pompous demeanor and condescending attitude caused them to immediately dislike him. However, after testing his skills in what was essentially a hazing and causing the man to break down crying, Vox Machina felt more sympathetic towards him and began to warm up to their new companion.

Taryon referred to the members of Vox Machina with nicknames, with the exception of Percy who introduced himself the night Vox Machina hazed Tary.[52] Tary learned the rest of the party's names after Pike had him make flashcards and made him promise to look at them every night until he knew them by heart. [53]

Percival de Rolo[]

Percy was initially distrustful and wary of Taryon, not believing that the other man had actually built Doty. In return, Tary assumed that Percy knew very little about mechanics and engineering, and explained such concepts to him at a basic level. However, after Tary opened up to the group, the two of them soon began to bond over their mutual love of tinkering and started collaborating on projects.

Tary and Percy became very quick friends and loved to trade mechanical and technological designs. This has led to Matt dubbing them the "Tinkering Nerds", and Taliesin and Sam have referred to themselves as the "Science Bros". Some of their most notable collaborations was a mechanical lamp powered by opals from Tary's Helm of Brilliance, as well as Percy helping Tary construct Doty 2.0.

Tary has always been fond of Percy, even declaring him "the type of man I want to marry someday". The two maintain a platonic relationship and remain very good friends.


Keyleth, like most of Vox Machina, initially had a strong dislike towards Tary, and was vehemently opposed to the idea of him joining the group, both due to his pompous attitude and due to the sorrow she was feeling due to Scanlan's recent departure. Overtime, she warms up to him. Tary is very impressed by Keyleth's skills and abilities. Keyleth seems to appreciate his admiration, but also feels a bit jealous of his quick friendship with Percy. At one point the druid admitted to Vax'ildan that she felt like Tary was replacing her as Percy's best friend.[54]


Vex is described multiple times as Tary's best friend, having become so while Tary lived in Vex's home in Whitestone during their year long break.[55] They exchange hair tips and other such things. They also, incidentally, had romantic interest in the same man (although Tary always seemed to respect Vex and Percy's relationship and never did anything to sully it). Vex may have been his first best friend outside of Doty, given that he was a sheltered, lonely child.

As an artificer of the Unearthed Arcana edition Alchemist, Taryon had the ability to use various alchemical formulas for both offense and defense. In addition, he has the power to infuse items with magic for a set amount of time until the spell is used.

  • (about Vox Machina) "Loyalty like that, you can't put a price on it. But, if I had to, I'd say their friendship is worth about 210,000 gold. Which, even to me, is a relatively large amount of money.[113]
