For other uses, see Darius (disambiguation).


Darius is a planet in the Rakia Galaxy. It is an important plot element throughout the Darius-series, appearing in almost every of its installments. Darius is orbited by the moons Kazumn and Weather. Later games also show that the planet is orbited by a asteroid ring.

Darius is shown to be inhabited both by humans who descend from the people of Amnelia, as well as a race of sentient furry creatures.


The planet Darius was discovered by Sameluck Raida and Lutia Feen, from Amnelia, when fighting the Kazumn-based Thiimas, in Amnelian year 626.

In Amnelian Year 2402 Darius declared it's independence from Amnelia. This year became year 1 of Darius' new calendar. 201 years later Darius was attacked by Belsar, but Belsar's army was repelled thanks to pilot-duo Tiat and Proco. Sadly the planet became a "star of death" and had to be evacuated. Many of it's people traveled to the two planets Olga and Vadis. Some also traveled to the Solar System, but this may have happened years later.

In year 1642 of the Darius calendar some of the descedents of those that had immigrated to Vadis began the return to and revival of Darius. The people of Vadis had to once again face Belsar in their mission to do this. Though having been revived, Darius was once more attacked by Belsar in year 1904.
