BACKGROUND: Darryl returned to the city with the rest of the Mallrats soon after the virus dispersed, and eventually married Ellie and had a son, Alex. During the next great catastrophe (the demise of Eyeboards), Alex disappeared while visiting the market with his father and Darryl and Ellie’s marriage subsequently fell apart.
Darryl eventually returned to the mall, survived the great earthquake (Tribe Revival shutting down) and settled back into Mallrat life, slowly rebuilding a friendship with Ellie. Though he had issues around the kids for a long time, a friendship with Gel helped to lessen these and the two became close, eventually entering into a relationship (ironically because of a drunken kiss he shared with Ruby). The two are now married and have a daughter, Hazel.
Darryl still occasionally panics about his life, losing his self-esteem and unhelpfully retreating into his shell - much to Gel’s consternation - and resorting to drink and/or dodgy veterinary medicines pinched from Alice’s farm to help him through.
He will also always hold a candle for Ellie, but knows that door is well and truly shut.
