Darien is a male trainer from Phenac City in Orre.
Darien is a nice guy, perhaps a bit too nice for his own good at times.
Darien was born and raised in Phenac City, and was friends with Susanna, a girl his age who also lived in Phenac City. At some point in his life, he was given a Zangoose. He named it after Susanna, but calls his Zangoose by the shortened name Sanna to avoid confusion. He also befriended Lillith when she at one point came to Phenac City to look for trainers to battle against, and went out on a date with her once, but decided it was better to stay friends after Lillith came on a little too strong during their date.
Darien is currently dating his old childhood friend Susanna, who seems to have developed a bit of an obsession with him.
