Darion was only eight years old when his parents were killed and his sister, Lykia, was taken from him by raiders who had come and destroyed his village. Gabrielle and the Amazons came to the village's rescue but they had been too late to stop the destruction. Gabrielle befriended Darion from the first time she met him and vise versa. Gabrielle grew very attached to the little boy and decided to take care of him, at least until his sister could be found. Together, they care for each other like family and it is only by blood that they are truly separated.
