Having grown up in a world where dinosaurs (previously extinct) lived and breathed, Darius eventually developed a deep interest and admiration for these magnificent beings. This fascination was shared with his father (who most likely also influenced him), which made them have a fairly close relationship. Among other things, they enjoyed reading articles related to research and paleontological findings, especially those related to the doctor of paleontology Alan Grant, but the true dream of Darius and his father was, one day, to be able to visit the Jurassic World theme park, on Isla Nublar. They promised each other to visit the park and exchanged gifts to indicate their intention to do so.
However, Fredrick became seriously ill. For the next several weeks, Darius stayed with his father, who, in his final moments, told him that things don't always turn out the way you want them, that "everything falls apart" but to go ahead with his dreams and pursue them no matter what. . Fredrick Bowman eventually passed away. Though devastated both by the loss of his father and by the fact that they could never fulfill his dream, Darius stayed true to his promise to move on.
Sometime in the year 2015, Darius obtained the Jurassic World VR video game, due to a promotional contest wherein the winner would receive a free trip to Jurassic World. He would unsuccessfully try repeatedly to win the game, to the point where his mother asked his Brother to intervene, requesting that he take a break for his well being. Darius agreed, resting for the night, and waking up in the early morning as he had a sudden inspiration, reaching into his library for background information on how to beat the game. After being successful, Mr. DNA appeared announcing that he was the first winner of the game won Darius the chance to attend "Camp Cretaceous", a summer camp program at Jurassic World. Upon arriving at Camp Cretaceous Darius is introduced to his fellow campers Brooklynn, Kenji Kon, Sammy Gutierrez, Ben Pincus, and Yasmina Fadoula. Although Darius is obviously the most passionate of the campers and the only one interested in dinosaurs.
The campers are soon introduced to their Camp Counsellors Dave and Roxie. Throughout the series Darius is provided many opportunities to fulfil he and his fathers shared ambition of visiting Jurassic World. Darius saw dinosaurs up close and drove a gyrosphere. In "Things Fall Apart" the campers are separated from Dave and Roxie, and with the Indominus rex and other dinosaurs out of containment, are forced to fend for themselves.
Eventually in "End of the Line" the campers having defeated Toro make their way back to the main dock, intending to catch the ferry to the mainland and return home. However upon arriving the ferry has already left, leaving Darius and fellow campers stranded on Isla Nublar and marking the onset for Season 2.
Darius leads everyone to Main Street in the hopes of sending out a distress signal. After a day of searching in vain for a beacon to send for help, he has a nightmare of Ben Pincus still being alive and blaming him. He's woken up by Yasmina Fadoula, and while with her he realizes that the beacon is disguised. After they find the beacon in the T. rex's lair, he and Kenji Kon invade the lair and activate the beacon before fleeing.
Realizing that Main Street and several other areas are unsafe, Darius and the others try to keep themselves safe until help arrives, eventually building a shelter at their old destroyed camp caused by the Indominus rex. While looking for food, Darius, Sammy and Brooklyn find themselves being chased by two Baryonyxes. Darius frees three Stegosauruses from the cages to distract the Baryonyxes, but also releases the last Baryonyx since they are a family.
On one morning when Brooklyn, Yasmin and Sammy investigate a noise and frozen flowers she witnessed earlier, Darius and Kenji investigate what happened to the water (Water drained). The two successfully fix the water problem by goading a Stegosaurus into hitting a long, resulting in the water flowing again. After the water starts flowing again, the two head to a water hole and see several herbivores and carnivores drinking water, to which Darius says Dr. Alan Grant theorized that this is a neutral ground for all dinosaurs. Later that night, the campers spot a fire, making them believe there are people.
When they arrive however, they don't see people at first, and are instead attacked by a dinosaur. Fortunately they are then saved by three human beings named Mitch, Tiff, and Hap, with the former two being a married couple and the latter being their tour guide. after being saved, Darius and the campers are taken to Mitch's and Tiff's camp, which they greatly enjoy because they have tents, beds and food. Darius bonds with Mitch for their love for dinosaurs, and takes both Mitch and Tiff on a brief tour to see dinosaurs. Darius however is unaware that Mitch and Tiff are hunters and are just using him so they can find dinosaurs to kill.
Darius is the last person to find out about their motives. Once he finds out, Mitch threatens him into helping the two, with either killing the group or the dinosaurs on the island; demanding Darius to take them to the watering hole. Darius starts guiding them to the watering hole, along with Sammy and Yasmina, but when Mitch tries to shoot a dinosaur, Darius reveals their location and the dinosaur scatters everyone. Darius gives Yasmina a piece of paper and she manages to escape in the confusion, but Darius himself and Sammy are quickly recaptured.
Darius and Sammy lead Mitch and Tiff to Main Street, whereupon they immediately turn taser staves on them and threaten them, demanding they reveal the location of the watering hole. Darius and Sammy then drop a bookshelf on them and scatter, taking their guns with them. The hunters search for them for a great deal of time until they discover the cutout of Brooklynn, again used as a decoy, but not long after they manage to find Darius and Sammy. However, the return of electricity distracts them long enough for Darius and Sammy to flee again, only for Rexy the T-Rex to arrive and drive the hunters off. It then comes for them, but a hologram distracts Rexy long enough for Darius and Sammy to well and truly escape — without the guns, which the hunters recovered. As they run, speakers turn on with Brooklynn's voice, although she cannot hear them. Darius and Sammy then work together to explain, via charades, that the hunters are going after the watering hole.
Darius directs everyone to different jobs to stop the hunters, but soon leaves to try and stop them alone, trying to be a hero. Before the confrontation can truly begin, Brooklynn runs over the hunters in a Gyrosphere. She gets out and starts having a "touching moment" with him, saying he was wrong, but in actuality they were just stalling the hunters until the other campers could drive away the dinosaurs from the watering hole. While the hunters witness this, Darius and Brooklynn pile into the Gyrosphere and run. However, Darius crashes the Gyrosphere and the hunters briefly close in, but they run when they see the stampede, which slams into the Gyrosphere and sends Darius rolling. Eventually the Gyrosphere turns on again and they speed ahead, but Tiff beats them to the docks and escapes in her boat before they can get on it.
Dejected, Darius goes back to the island, but is delighted to see Ben in person again and he apologizes for letting him fall. They all group hug, and Darius says they'll find their own way off the island.
After a large amount of time has pass, Darius and the rest of the campers, sans Bumpy, have eventually got off the island on a small makeshift raft; but this was cut short when a massive tidal wave destroyed their raft and washed them back to shore. Returning to their camp to discuss what their next course of action will be, Darius convinced the others that another raft is the only way to get off the island. The campers then decided to go to spot at the top of a mountain called Lookout Point to get some hang gliders to make a sail for another raft. While Kenji, Sammy, Yasmina and Brooklynn takes the gondola lift to the top, Darius stays behind with Ben and Bumpy to gather some woods from the forest. During this time, Darius tries to confide with Ben about what the latter's problem is, but he usually brushed it off. After pestering him with various things that worried him, Ben finally admits that he can't leave Bumpy again. Though Darius assures him that they can build a bigger raft to take her along with them, Ben remind him that even if they do, she can't fit and must stay behind, just like their recent attempt to leave the island. After the campers survive a flock of attacking Dimorphodons, Kenji and Sammy informed them that they found Mitch and Tiff's boat stuck on a rock not far offshore.
After acquiring the boat, Darius and the other campers would spend times dedicated to refueling and getting necessary supplies for the boat. During this time, he would come across the ruins of Jurassic Park's Visitor Center with Kenji and Yaz in "Clever Girl", which became the new home of the "blue raptor" he and Kenji encountered on their first night at camp; and in "Eye of the Storm", and he puts Kenji in charge of packing up the supplies while he goes to observe a herd of his father's favorite dinosaur: the Gallimimus. Darius would later find one of them dead and stashed in a tree that is littered with strange barbed quills. As he looks through his notebook to figure out the identity of the mystery dinosaur that was responsible for the recent killing, he bumped into Sammy and Brooklynn, who revealed that the mystery dinosaur is another hybrid created by Dr. Wu, the Scorpios rex. As they return to camp to prepare for their immediate departure, the storm is already getting worse to the point that the water became to rough for their boat to cast off. Stuck on an island with the storm getting even worse, and a killer hybrid dinosaur out on a rampage, the campers decided that they are going to have to make a stand until the condition improve. As the storm makes landfall on the island, the Scorpios rex attack their fortified base, getting pass their electrified fence and threatening the campers. During its assault, it became distracted by a nearby burning tree and later left after it heard another dinosaur calling out in the distance, but only after it managed to poison Sammy.
Following the Scorpios rex's attack, Darius and Ben devised a plan to create a huge and fiery explosion to distract the hybrid, while Yasmina races to get the antidote, and Kenji and Brooklynn stay behind to tend to Sammy. Using an extra tank of gasoline, they lit one of the gondola lifts that leads to Lookout Point, and the resulting explosion successfully draws the hybrid away from Yaz after she got the antidote. After Sammy have successfully recovered thanks to Yaz and the antidote, Darius and the campers decides to take whatever they can carry to the yacht while there is a break in the storm. However, Ben left the group to find Bumpy, who had earlier fled during the Scorpios rex's rampage, prompting Darius to leave the other campers to find him. Darius eventually reunite with Ben and later Bumpy, but as he prepares to lead them to the meet with the other campers at the dock, Ben told Darius that does not want to leave. Even though Darius insist to Ben that he needs to go home, Ben wants to stay behind for Bumpy and his sake. The two later got into a fight over their respective decisions, but it would not end until Darius shout out loud that he does not want to leave Ben behind again. Later, after Bumpy found a group of Ankylosaurus that eventually adopted her into their herd, they were attacked again by the Scorpios rex, but the herd's armor and protective instinct drives the hybrid away. Ben then asks Darius why he isn't being a good friend by letting him do what he wants, which prompts Darius to say that he would not leave him again. Darius is comforted by Ben who tells him that wasn't his fault. Darius now accepts Ben's decision to stay on the island but tells him that he should at least say goodbye to the others, which Ben agrees to do. The two run back to the dock.
By the time they had reached the dock to meet with the others, the boat and the other campers are gone. What makes it even worse for them is the Scorpios rex had finally catch up to them, followed by another one. Darius and Ben had barely survived the onslaught of the two Scorpios rexes by hiding in one of the Limos the campers have taken from a penthouse owned by Kenji's dad, while the two hybrids fought each other. Darius surmised that the second Scorpios rex's birth could only be possible if the hybrid have the DNA of certain frog species in its genetic makeup, which enables them to reproduce asexually. Realizing the hybrids' reproduction method and their extreme aggression would have catastrophic results for Isla Nublar and its dinosaurs, Darius and Ben decided to find a way to stop them. After the two reach the old Visitor Center and reunite with the other campers, the Scorpios rexes would attack them again. With help from Blue, Darius and the campers managed to defeat the hybrids by causing the Visitor Centers to collapse, crushing the hybrids inside to death. Darius and the campers would later make a long walk to the dock, leaving the destroyed Visitor Center, the dead Scorpios rexes, and Blue behind them.
After saying goodbye to his fellow campers and having a second though on his decision, Ben rejoins them, and with Darius pulling him up onboard, the campers finally prepare to depart for Costa Rica. Before they can, however, they were stopped by helicopters ordering them to return to the island, which the campers complies and return to Isla Nublar. Even though Kenji is excited, Darius and the rest of the campers are suspicious that the helicopters are not their rescuers. Nevertheless, the campers return to the dock and begin to board one of the copters. After Kenji, Sammy and Ben boarded, Darius, Yaz and Brooklynn are next to evacuate, until Rext appears to attack the copter and kills one of the mercenaries. The pilot then begins a hasty retreat with Kenji, Sammy and Ben onboard, leaving Darius, Yaz and Brooklynn behind to fend for themselves against the massive theropod. Chasing the trio in a forest, Rexy caught up to them, but gave up when she heard another team of mercenaries stationed on the park's Main Street and goes after them, prompting the trio to follow in tow. They followed the dinosaur and witness a straggling mercenary running for one of the helicopters and managed to avoid Rexy, but still ends up eaten by the Mosasaurus.
Darius, Brooklynn and Yasmina then spotted another helicopter and follows it, hoping it is the one that carries the other campers. To their surprised, the copter they followed actually carries a couple of mercenaries and Dr. Wu. After overhearing his conversation the mercenaries, the trio surmised that Wu want to reclaim his private laptop that contains his research on the Scorpios rex so he could make more hybrid dinosaurs. In order to prevent this from happening, they decided to steal his laptop first in hopes of turning him in to the authorities to prevent more hybrids from being created.
After successfully acquiring the laptop in his private lab before they arrived, they later overheard that Wu needs the research to perfect the Scorpios rex into a much more stable hybrid at the request of a man named Mills. As they are leaving, Brooklynn is captured by Hawkes, but not before she hands Darius the laptop. Realizing that Darius and Yaz have the laptop with them, Hawkes gave them two hours to give him Wu's laptop in exchange for Brooklynn's safe return. Regrouping with the other campers and informing them of Brooklynn's situation, Darius devised a plan to give the laptop back to Wu, but with his research wiped from it. Using Sammy's flash drive from camp, they copied all of Wu's research onto it so they could give it to the authorities in Costa Rica to have him incarcerated. Darius then devised a plan on how they will give Wu's wiped laptop back, while Ben provides them a distraction with help from Bumpy's herd. While the laptop is in the process of wiping out all of Wu's research, Kenji, who is losing his patients and worried for Brooklynn's safety, decides to take the laptop himself and delivers it to Wu.
The following morning, as Kenji gives the laptop back to Wu and his mercenary, Darius and the campers succeeded in rescuing Brooklynn in the midst of an Ankylosaurus stampede staged by Ben and Bumpy, which resulted in Wu's laptop being destroyed. After rescuing Brooklynn, and saying their goodbyes to Bumpy as she leave them to join the Ankylosaurus herd, Darius and the campers finally left Isla Nublar for good and departed for Costa Rica on Mitch and Tiff's boat. However, Darius's friendship with Kenji is now strained, due to the latter being angry that he was willing to put Brooklynn's life at risk. Also, unbeknownst to Darius and the others, there appears to be something on the boat that roars in the last scene.
Darius is happy that they have left the island, bhere is still some tension between Darius and Kenji, as Kenji is still angry at him for putting Brooklynn's life at risk. After the boat gets stuck in kelp, Darius goes in the water to remove it, but gets stuck in the process, and is being tailed by the Mosasaurus. Fortunately, Kenji saves Darius, and their friendship appears to be restored. The campers are then attacked by the Mosasaurus who destroys the ship, which leads to the campers being swept away onto an island not on Coasta Rica. Thr six go into a cave in order o possibly find shelter for the night.
After Ben sees something shiny, the six head out to find what it is. The group wanders into a desert as a sandstorm begins to form. Kenji and Brooklynn are seperated in the process, which leads to Darius, Ben, Sammy and Yaz looking for them. Luckily they regroup with them after the sandstorm ends. They discover that the shiny thing is really just a metal rectangle, much to their dissapointment. Later that night, the group wakes up and notices a saber-toothed tiger in a bush, with Darius remarking what it is. Luckily Darius and the group manage to get away. The following morning, the group finds an invisible wall which opens to reveal a metal hallway, much to their shock.
They briefly go inside the hall, before coming out of another entrace shortly after which leads to the woods. Much to their shock they hear and see a T-rex. They run out of fear and hide and then see it with another T-rex. They then see a women, much to their shock. Darius and the group learn that the omen named Dr. Mae Turner, who is a Behavioural Paleoneurobiologist, whom Darius is a fan of. Darius and the others tell her that they came from Isla Nublar. After learning from Mae that it is not possible to make phone calls on the island, the group stays at Mae's place. Distrusting Mae, along with discovering that Mae works for Mantah Corp, Kenji, Brooklynn, Ben, and Yasmina head to an area that Mae specicially told them not to go, while Darius and Sammy stay and keep Mae busy. Darius appears to be bonding with Mae over her work with Dinosaurs. After Mae gets an alert, Darius and Sammy likely tell Mae about where the others are. The three then run to the others, and Mae stops a robotic dog (revealed to be a BRAD) from killing Ben, Yaz, Brooklynn and Kenji. Back at Mae's place, the group, particulary Sammy, warns her about Mantah Corp, much to her conufsion. Mae then goes to monitor the A mother and daughter T-rex eating habbits, with Darius and Sammy following her. Darius watched the Rex's eating with fondness. However, the two Rexes get out of control and attack each other, much to the confusion of Darius, Sammy and Mae, with the latter having a BRAD tranquilize them. After Sammy finds something in the Rexes food, the three head back to her place and a suspicious Mae is now curious on what Mantah Corp is doing to her dinosaurs.
After Mae discovers that Mantah Corp is tampering with the food to make the dinosaurs more aggressive, everyone comes up with a plan to call the supply plane and get rid of the altered food, in order to get off the island and stop Mantah Corp. Darius and Yaz head to the T-rex area and set off the time box, but the group is the chased away by the mother dinosaur Big Eatie. Fortunately, Mae gets an alert that the plane will be coming, much to the campers joy. However, they are then chased by some BRADs, but get away. After escaping, they enter a cold and snowy area, where they encounter a wounded Kentrosaurus named Pierce. Despite wanting to catch the plane, the group agrees to help get Pierce out of this area, upon Darius's request. While they are attacked by a BRAD, a frightened Yaz successfully hits it into the water. After saving Pierce, the 6 campers run to the plane, but unfortunately arrive too late. Darius states that despite missing the plan, they did the right thing. Darius and Ben head back to Mae's.
Still desiring to help the dinosaurs, Darius tells Mae they are in. Darius and Ben help Mae with Pierce. After everyone regroups, Sammy reveals to all of them about Kash who blackmailed her family into sending her to Jurassic World. When Darius and the others attempt to dissuade her from confronting him, an angry Sammy decides to do so anyway and runs off. Fortunately, Darius and the others stop Sammy. When Kash who is Mae's boss, turns his BRADs against Mae, Darius and the others manage to fend off the BRADs and save Mae. The campers are surrounded by Velociraptors, but Sammy then uses one of the damaged BRADs to kill one raptor and sscare the others away. The 6 then take Mae somewhere where they won't be seen.
Ben tries to help a wounded Mae, while the others try to get Kash's phone and call for help. Darius, Sammy and Kenji encounter an injured Little Eatie (Big Eatie's daughter), much to their discomfort. After Big Eatie and Pierce are lured to a place by the BRADs and Mantah Corp drones are are forced to fight, the six campers come up with a plan to lure Kash away, stop the fight, and get the phone. However, when Yaz suffers a panic attack after hearing Big Eatie and Pierce roar at each other, Darius decides to go and get the phone by himself. After Ben, Sammy, and Yaz cause a distraction which lures Kash and his BRAD away, Darius sneaks into th compound and uses the monitor to move the drones way, which briefly stops the fight. However, Kash's BRAD who ordered him to get his phone, shows up, which leads to Darius hiding and losing control, and the fight then resumes. After briefly deliberating on going for the phone or stopping the fight again, he gets the phone and destroys the BRAD. He calls somone, but is stopped by Kash who takes the phone and ends the call. The person who he called and picked up was his brother Brandon, who is shocked to learn that Darius is alive.
In order to gain Kash's trust, Darius reveals to Kash he came from Isla Nublar, but does not mention the other campers, and acts like he hates Dinosaurs. Darius convinces Kash to stop the fight by stating that the dinosaurs are expensive. Kash and Darius go to the med bay with Big Eatie who was tranquilized by the BRADs. While Kash is on the phone with his boss, Darius removes the wound from Big Eatie she sustained from Pierce during the fight, and is ready to escape in an elevator but stops when Kash gets off the phone. After Kash's BRAD drops a box of some sort of chips, Darius takes one and puts it in his pocket. When they go in the elevator, Darius sees the other 5 and then jumps out, much to Kash's anger. Darius is briefly reunited with the others, where he reveals a chip he found which he believes is used to control the dinosaurs. He then decides to stay with a Kash and act as a spy for the group. When a furious Kash get back, Darius gives him the chip as a sign of trust, which soothes his anger. Unbkeknowst to Darius, Brandon vows to find him and leaves their house.
Darius exits the compound to meet with the group, but is stopped by Kash's BRAD-X. To cover himself, Darius states he wants to go for a walk, and Kash says that the BRAD-X will be with him. They then go insde. Kash instructs Darius to inject his control chip in the Spinosaurus. Darius tries to inject the chip while the Spino is sleeping, but it wakes up and chases him with the BRAD-X also chasing him. The BRAD-X tries to kill Darius, but Darius gets away and the Spino destroys the BRAD-X, and Darius then uses a sleeping gas to knock out the Spino. Fortunately, Brooklynn successfully reprograms a robot to communicate with Darius, and Darius does not have to inject. Darius and the BRAD-X report the progress to Kash, but the test fails. Kash then noitces the other tests fails, which makes Kash wonders if the chips will work on more impressionable assets, much to Darius's horror.
While the five head to the Med bay to save the younger dinosaurs with Darius's assistance, Darius keeps Kash busy with video gaming. After Darius wins the first game, an agry Kash proceeds to leave, but wanting to keep him stalled, Darius goads him into playing again. They play more games, but Kash uses cheat codes and tactics to win. After Kenji turns the power off, Kash leads Darius to the Med bay. Darius and Kash encounter the Ceratosaurus in the med bay, but it is tranquilized by a BRADX. Kash then notices that the other dinosaurs are gone and asks if Darius is behind this, but Darius denies.
Kash tells Darius and the BRAD-X's they need to sweep the biomes. Darius tells him to check here first and says that baby dinos can't work elevators, in order for the others not to be caught. Darius becomes scared when Kash discovers that the platform was used. The Brachiosaurus that was saved by Ben runs off and is caught by some BRADX's and taken to Kash and Darius, where Kash injects the control chip in to control the dinosaur, much to Ben's and Darius's horror. Darius is uncomfrotable over what Kash did. he other 5 come up with a plan to stop Kash and Ben tells Darius. The plan, however, is complicaed by a pack of Pteranodons attacking. Darius and Ben lead Kash into a trap, but their attempt fail when the BRADX does not shock him. Fortunately, Ben leads Darius and Ben into Mae's place and Darius and Ben trap him inside, much to the anger of Kash. Darius is then reunited with the others, much to their happiness.
Darius and Kenji offically put the past behind them, with Darius telling Kenji that they are good when a guilty Kenji tries to explain to him that he really was not mad at him. However, Kenji initally does not tell him about him and Brooklynn after Darius sais he does not like change. After notcing that Kash escaped Mae's place, Darius and Kenji head to the compound, where Darius hides from Kash and his boss and overhears the boss say they are going to take Pierce to a new biome and use him as food. To stop them, Darius and Kenji head to the airlock. Darius and Kenji head into the biome, but not before Kenji reveals he and Brooklynn are a couple, much to Darius's shock and happiness. Darius and Kenji are chased away by a pack of Dilophosaurus and end up catching up with Ben, Mae and Pierce. Brooklyn, Sammy and Yaz arrive with the snowmobile and chase away the Diliphosaurus packs, thus saving the others. Brookylnn tells Kenji that he and Darius sent their BRAD-X to warn them, which Kenji denies. Darius then realizes that this is a trap. The six, Mae and Pierce see a group of BRAD-X's, Kash and the boss approach them. Kenji recognizes him and says"dad?", much to the shock of Darius and the other campers.
Darius is a withdrawn geekish kid who is passionate about dinosaurs. This interest he shares in common with his father Frederick and what bonded them together. After his father's passing, Darius wanted to fulfill their shared dream of visiting Jurassic World. At first Darius has some trouble befriending the other campers due to being the youngest of the group and seemingly the only one interested in dinosaurs. Initially, Darius seems to conflict with the brash Kenji Kon. But after the two survived an encounter with Toro, the two had a begrudging respect for each other. Darius also seemed to not get along well with Brooklynn due to her disinterest in dinosaurs and focus on her social media, but the two would begin to bond after being saved from a quicksand pit. When the Indominus rex escaped and the children found themselves on their own, Darius took charge in leading them to survive. In spite of being unsure and not knowing what to do for every situation Darius displayed courageousness to protect the other kids, with the others (excluding Ben who was presumed dead) eventually telling him that he is the reason they have survived.
In season 2, Darius is still trying to be a leader of the others. He bonds more with his campers, particularly Kenji. This season however, shows him to be gullible and easily manipulated (to an extent), as he bonds with Mitch to the point that he refuses to believe that he and Tiffany are up to something, despite the others (Brooklynn in particular) being suspicious. He forms a fatherly bond with Mitch, which likely explains why he is easily manipulated by the latter. After learning that Mitch and Tiffany are hunters and villains, he expresses a lot of guilt for not listening to Brooklynn. His guilt over not saving Ben is still present. After being reunited with Ben, he is overjoyed that he is still alive.
In season 3, shows his leadership style continuing. His guilt over letting Ben goes is present to the point that he fights Ben because the latter wants to stay on the island, and even says that he would not abandon him again during their fight. By the end of the season however, his friendship with Kenji is strained, due to the latter being angry at him for putting Brooklynn's life at risk.
In season 4, he desires to help the dinosaurs, while also desiring to get everyone off the new island. At one point, he contemplates on using Kash's phone to call for help, or stopping the fight between Pierce and Big Eatie, ultimately choosing the former. After being captured by Kash, he pretends to hate dinosaurs and feeds his ego to gain his trust, as well as acts like a spy for his group. Despite there being tension between him and Kenji for putting Brooklynn's life at risk, their friendship is restored after Kenji saves him from the Mosasaurus. At the end of the season, he is shocked to learn that the president of Mantah Corp is Kenji's dad.
Darius has brown eyes, dark skin and black hair. He wears a yellow and black hooded jacket (appears in three episodes of Season 1) later it's been replaced by a white t-shirt after leaving it behind at the ruins of the bunkers and he wears it mostly during through Season 1 and 2 while stranded on Nublar. Also wears light blue jeans, black and white sneakers. Including wears a raptor tooth necklace (was mention in Things Fall Apart, that he left it behind at the camp during through the Indominus rex Outbreak). Later in season 2, the necklace was discovered and recovered by Sammy in the debris. As of Season 3, his hair has grown more voluminous and in size, due to lack of resources on the island.
During through Season 3, Darius' sideburn haircuts have grown back while still stranded on Isla Nublar with the other campers.
In the episode "Safe Harbor" Darius wears a pair of yellow swim trunks. This may indicate that his favorite color is yellow.
- Darius shares his surname with the Bowman Family from the The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Cathy Bowman and her parents, and the other Bowman Family from the original Jurassic Park novel, Tina Bowman and her parents.
- Darius carrying a dinosaur tooth necklace may be a reference to Dr. Alan Grant and his signature raptor sickle claw from Jurassic Park. Like Dr. Grant, Darius loses his necklace on Isla Nublar.
- Unlike Dr. Grant, Darius accidentally lost his necklace. Dr. Grant threw his raptor claw away, intentionally losing it. And unlike Dr. Grant, Darius reclaimed his necklace.
- Darius' signature color initially appears to be yellow/gold due to the jacket he initially wears. Yellow as a color has been associated with intelligence, honor, loyalty, joy, and optimism all of which describe Darius' personality.
- Darius is very much interested in the researches of Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler as he was shown to keep tabs on their works and findings.
- His yellow jacket bears a resemblance to the one worn by Dennis Nedry in the original Jurassic Park film.
- Darius is 12 and the youngest of the group, confirmed by the novelization of the show.
- Darius refers to Blue in "Escape from Isla Nublar" as the "blue raptor" because he and the other campers never learned her name or have a chance to meet Owen Grady, thanks to the Indominus rex breaking out and throwing the park into chaos.
