He is seen in Book 5: Lodestar, when he uses his telekinesis to reveal part of Foxfire by lifting a tarp after it was repaired. He did that to show off his skill and to prove that skills are as useful as abilities. He showed that anyone could have used telekinesis to lift it if they learned the skill, which is why skills are so important. He apparently won a sort of splotching match between the Councillors to do it.[Citation needed]
He is a phaser.
Councillor Darek has skin with a warm brown tone and shiny black hair that is curled at the end. He is always seen wearing his crown that has a ruby set in it.
- Darek means "power of the tribe" in Old German.
