Darren Cole is a fifteen year old Kryptalite, a Child of Earth. He is a guardian of Krypta.
Darren has endured a hard past, from the rough neighbourhood of Harlem, New York. He was taken into foster care, and entered seven different foster homes, before Marcus took him to Kar. He was the very first Guardian to arrive.
Darren is jovial and easy going, despite a hard childhood being bounced from foster home to foster home. He is usually an optimist, and has a smile on his face even in battle.
Despite being fifteen, Darren has already stopped growing. He stands at 6'3, and is muscular. In Alex's words he is simply huge. Alex also says that it's a good thing he is always smiling because if he was frowning he would have looked scary.
Darren and Alex struck up a friendship almost immediately.
Darren and Jade are very tight. The two are alike in character and usually stroke off each other for humor.
