- — Darius
Darius often flirted with Katniss, telling her at one point that she ought to buy one of his kisses.
In Catching Fire, when Gale was whipped by Romulus Thread, Darius tried to intervene after 20 whips, but was knocked unconscious. To Katniss' horror, he was then made into an Avox who served the District 12 tributes at the 3rd Quarter Quell. Katniss believed it was no coincidence that Darius was placed in their apartment, and that President Snow had ordered him to serve there to frighten her.
Dariss is an incredibly small ship compared to others within the fandom. Some people enjoy it because Katniss and Darius were friendly with one other and because of Darius' canon flirtation with Katniss, which Katniss didn't mind (because she didn't understand it).
On AO3, it is the second most popular ship for Darius, only behind Darius/Johanna, but ships involving Darius are rare.
- Katniss mentions that Darius is her "favorite" Peacekeeper.
