Darius was a figure in World Lore.
“Self-proclaimed Lord Darius, a famous warlord who lived two hundred years ago, was given the helm as a tribute. After donning it, he'd swiftly risen to prominence and won every battle he fought - or so the legends claim. He built a large army and eventually laid siege to Ganezzar. They say that he was quite mad at the point, frequently speaking to himself and giving strange orders.”
