Synopsis
 
Darko is verrier apprentice in the workshop of his father in the peaceful village of Drummor in the North of the Kingdom of Ordan. It is unknown, that it is also the descendant of Cohars.
Cohars was the one who helped the titans of lights to flee when the clergy of the light built a tyranny. It is in a world covered with forest, with the help of his uncle Bard, sister dancer and Commander (woman) repented paladins that despite him, Darko confronts his destiny.
Analysis [edit] scenario is Christophe Arleston, author of Lanfeust de Troy and Lanfeust of the stars. There are strong similarities between the two series, Arleston applying the same recipe for Lanfeust de Troy (including at the level of the main characters: a young brave hero, two young girls (a blonde and a brunette), an old man and a large gross). However, the tone is different, and the series has its own identity. Philippe Pellet design also contributes to give a different atmosphere.
