Not to be confused with Darien.
"Darien talks of nothing but wine and women, but behind his bluster he's a better tactician than his father."
―Alinon the Alchemist[src]

Darien Gautier is a Breton captain of the Camlorn Guard, residing in Camlorn, Glenumbra. He is the son of General Gautier, and is first met in the Camlorn Chapel. It is later implied that he is romantically interested in Gloria Fausta.

Darien Gautier plays a large role in the questlines of the regions of Glenumbra and Rivenspire, helping the Vestige first in Camlorn with the Town Guard before retiring from service to travel on his own.

He is later found at the Hollow City in Coldharbour, where he has joined the ranks of the Fighters Guild


Covenant QuestsEdit

A Lingering HopeEdit

General Gautier believes his son Darien, the captain of the Camlorn Guard is still alive inside the city. He hopes to use Darien's master key to unlock the Camlorn gates. Then the Lion Guard can surround Faolchu's werewolves and retake the city.

The Fall of FaolchuEdit

The Vestige stand with Captain Gautier and the rescued camlorn citizens. The time to retake Camlorn from Faolchu has arrived.

Mists of CorruptionEdit

Sir Lanis and the Knights of the Dragon are ready to march into Cath Bedraud to deal with Angof, but the mist from Angof's vines creates a hazard they can't overcome.

Darien and a group of Camlorn Guards is rescued by the Vestige inside after they marched into Cath Bedraud without protection from Angof's barrier. Strangely, Darien is also not poisoned by the mist unlike the Vestige who used the Midnight Talisman.

The LabyrinthEdit

The final battle against Angof begins now. The Vestige needs to get inside and navigate the labyrinth of catacombs to find a safe place for Gabrielle and the soldiers to teleport into.

Angof the GravesingerEdit

Darien was sent into a different part of the crypt than Gabrielle and the others. He discovered from a Bloodthorn Cultist that the Vestige need three shard-keys to open the three looks that protect Angof's inner sanctum.

The Road to Rivenspire Edit

After the events of Stormhaven, the Vestige runs into Darien once again at Oldgate in Rivenspire, no longer a soldier but an adventurer and sellsword who currently works for Countess Tamrith. He updates you on the situation in Rivenspire and the civil war between the three noble houses.

Shornhelm Divided Edit

Darien directs you to find Count Tamrith in Shornhelm's chapel, who is holding off an assault from Baron Wylon Montclair.

The Parley Edit

Darien eventually joined the Fighter's Guild and is hired along with a contingent by Queen Arzhela to oversee her protection during the tense negotiations between the Kingdom of Evermore and the Imperial invaders for the fate of Bangkorai.

Coldharbour QuestsEdit

The Weight of Three CrownsEdit

Darien appears in a minor capacity during negotiations in Stirk.

The Army of MeridiaEdit

During the assault on Coldharbour, he can be found in the Fighters Guildhall once King Laloriaran Dynar has been rescued from The Lightless Oubliette. He has assumed command, being the only noble-born there, however once spoken to, he will agree to give Dynar a chance.

The Final AssaultEdit

Darien, along with Cadwell and Skordo the Knife, is one of the companions you can choose to accompany you into The Endless Stair.

Personality and traitsEdit

He is shown to be very confident and capable at times, as well as flirtatious and lighthearted. For example, he is capable of seducing a Montclair Captain for information. Even when preparing to fight Molag Bal in Coldharbour, he takes the time to fantasize about beautiful women.


  • "What brings you to our pleasant little city? The war? The blood? The thrice-damned werewolves?"
  • "Welcome to Rivenspire! Land of beautiful women and an ugly war!"


Speaking to Darien after some gates are closed will reveal that he had a vision, presumably of the Colored Rooms. After the Coldharbour objective is complete, Darien will disappear, with no one knowing where he went. The book A Plea for Help, found within the library of the Temple of Ire in Orsinium, is written by Darien and addressed to you. In Anvil, Gabrielle Benele will be researching what happened to Darien, and assumes that since he was not found dead and did not come back, he simply returned somewhere else. Telling her of the aforementioned note will lead her to know where to look for Darien. Alinon the Alchemist appears at Scarp Keep, saying he was hoping to meet Darien here.[1]
