Darius 8

Darius 8

Darius 8 returns as the beautifully sculpted hunk that the ladies cannot get enough of! He is a natural athlete and his presence commands any crowd. He gives his all whether it's with a ball, a sword, or his bare hands. He's raw, yet sophisticated. Ruthless, yet compassionate. Rough, yet charming. No matter how Darius 8 comes, we will take him!
