Cheer up, the worst is yet to come.

The nephew of Dancer and Fain Hauk, Darice is the only child of their older brother Keris who died when Dancer was a teenager. Forced to grow up and take care of his mother, Darice has an acerbic sense of humor, but he does love his uncles, even though he refuses to talk to Fain. In spite of the fact that his uncle and country have declared war on The League, his goal is to become a League assassin and redeem the family honor that was damaged when Dancer was thrown out of assassin training.
