Animated Appearances

Headcanon

Dario Klanac (pronounced klaNAHTS), born December 2, 1950, in Zagreb, Yugoslavia. Darklon's father was a general who fought for Croatian independence in World War II. Once Darklon came of age, he took advantage of government inefficiency and occupied a small, uninhabited island in the Adriatic Sea without anyone's notice, eventually building a fortress there and using it as a base for a mercenary army, which came to Destro's attention through a chance encounter between Firefly and one of Darklon's mercenaries. From 1985 to 1988, Darklon assisted Destro in maintaining and expanding the Iron Grenadiers. His appearance is represented by Version 1.

DARKLON is a distant cousin of the Destro clan and the last of a long line of privateers, mercenaries, and investment bankers. From his cast-iron castle in the Alps, he dispatched his private armies to do battle for the highest bidder until Destro called upon him to lead his legions in his bid to take over Cobra.
"Completely unhindered by ideology or ethics, Darklon is motivated purely by greed. His telephone solicitors have been known to drum up business for his mercenary army by offering 'reasonable hourly rates' and cash rebates!"
