Full Name

Darius Elias Strayvinski


January 4th, 2713(Original birthdate)
January 4th, 1988(Current birthdate)


Darius is a tall, handsome Wire Fox Terrier with brown fur, a tan muzzle, a bushy tail, short, brown ears, and tan paws. He wore a green cape, a green shirt with the word "Desire" on it and has neatly combed dark hair and blue eyes. Darius is the same height as Marcus.

After he joined the Pound Puppies, he wears a green Tangzhuang, an aqua scarf, and white shorts. When dressing up as PoundRaizer Malachite, he wears a green helmet with a jade green vizor, a green shirt with the word "ingenuity" on it, and black shorts.  Three years later, Darius grew long tufts on his cheeks and started wearing a jade green cape.  He rarely wears rectangular glasses with green shades.

During the summer, Darius wears a green sleeveless shirt, aqua swimming trunks, sometimes sunglasses, and a green straw hat. When he goes to sleep, he wears a green pajama shirt, aqua shorts and jade green socks with holes for his toes. When he goes to the dojo, he wears a green karate uniform and a aqua green belt. When he was a puppy, he wore a green sweater, aqua pants, a jade green beret, and glasses.


Before he joined the Pound Puppies, Darius was a full-fledged narcissist. He gloried himself and loved collecting cards. Whenever he saw something ugly, Darius would cringe. He was also conceited and his favorite past time is looking in the mirror, but has a habit of breaking into song and dance. Despite that, Darius was the most intelligent member of the group. He is easily startled by fireworks to the point where he'll jump into someone's arms. After he joined the Pound Puppies, he started caring about others. He is good friends with Howler, Amy and Dexter. Darius is easily annoyed by Dumbo's stupidity. His favorite hobby is singing karaoke songs. He also has good taste in music. He is close to Elaine and Victoria. He speaks with a smooth Hungarian accent, which he inherits from Igor. Darius likes to eat all flavors of ice cream except chocolate. Darius also likes to eat pizza, but dislikes bacon bars. He had a crush on Cleopatra and later married her.

Like Shakespeare, he has a strong dislike against needles. His favorite type of music is anything except pop music. Darius is easily annoyed by Whopper's story-telling and will tell him to "grow up" because Darius has a realistic side on him and thinks that Whopper should give up his imaginary personas. He is also annoyed when he gets scolded by his descendant, Igor. It was revealed that Darius had a bitter childhood because he was raised to become mature while he was still a puppy. He likes to listening to old radio programs from the 1950's. He has a severe dislike against reality shows.


After training under Count Zanzibar, Darius is granted super speed. He also attacks with his cards. The cards he used consist of attack cards or trap cards. His intelligence can predict his enemies' next move. Darius also holds a special pose when introducing himself. Since he reformed, Darius started to take up inventing, yoga and blueprint making.

While dressed up as PoundRaizer Malachite, he uses his deck of cards as weapons. Due to his intelligence, he serves as the team's spy. He is also a talented singer and dancer. After training under Gamma, Darius became an expert at kick-boxing. He sings in a soothing bass voice.


Darius is a fan-made character created by CartoonLover and Rigsrigsrigs10918.

Darius is the sole descendant of Bright Eyes and Igor. However, he doesn't inherit Bright Eyes' cheerful personality or Igor's cat-like behavior and immaturity.

He was also known as "Devil Dog 2."

According to his age, he was born on January 4th, 2713. In the present, Darius would have been born on January 4th, 1988.

Darius was born in Budapest, Hungary, which was also the birthplace of his ancestor, Igor.

In an alternate timeline, Darius became a college professor on March 20th, 2191.
