In the Books
In the second series, Liam says that his brothers, Ethan and Daraku are constantly getting in trouble. They get in more trouble as Ethan breaks a family jewel in the family room in the castle. Daraku is mentioned to be the one that tells Niko that Ethan broke something. Niko remarks that Daraku is just like his father when he was his age. Daraku smiles, thrilled to be compared to the mighty leader of the regional kingdom, Aeota.
When Liam is tasked with leaving the territories to fight the Fukkens, he asks Daraku to come with him. Daraku is happy to be asked to come with and he agrees. He and Liam meet up with the others; Emory, Lilith, and Avita. Daraku shows his courage when the brigade is attacked and he uses a distinctive devil attack that burns the attackers with a flaming spirit attack. Liam recognizes the attack and asks how Daraku learned the attack. Daraku claims it is an angel attack but Liam corrects him and retorts by saying it is a demon move. Daraku ignores his brother and they move on.
Later in the series Daraku is questioned by Liam on his parentage and he grumbles that he is the first son of Niko and Aeota. Niko later shows up and asks the two what they are doing. Daraku cries that Liam is questioning his parentage and Niko's eyes darken which causes Liam to get angry and stand up. Liam snaps that he knew Niko never got over Kolero and that Daraku must be the son of Kolero and Niko. Daraku looks at Niko waiting for him to tell him it wasn't true but Niko only apologizes. Daraku runs off to tell Aeota and as soon as Aeota is told he is shocked and angry. Aeota finds Niko and they argue. Eventually Niko is forced to go and tell Kolero about their illegitimate son. Niko meets Kolero at the Council meeting and Niko announces their son to the Council. Niko and his son are met with scorn and the wrath of Kolero. At the end of the book it can be concluded that Kolero forgives Niko and that he cares about his son.
