Wow, did I just say that?
Darcy is a witch who is a member of the Trix, a trio of witches. Devious and manipulative, Darcy uses darkness, illusions, and hypnotics to confuse and control her opponents. She is a former student of Cloud Tower as she and her sisters, Icy and Stormy, were expelled in "Cold Spell."
Much like Icy and Stormy, Darcy demonstrates a sadistic personality but one that is more controlled as she is the least aggressive of the three (at least openly). She seems calmer and more competent compared to her sisters and is also good at discovering others' weaknesses to exploit them later. While appearing to have more self-restraint when compared to her sisters, Darcy is still very violent and openly condescending towards others, as she is seen laughing after turning Mirta into a pumpkin, and happily pummels Bloom before taking her powers. Believing that she holds a mastery over all things illusory and hypnotic, Darcy will lash out even more so if anyone else tries to trick her with illusions, as she does in the previously mentioned case with Mirta, whom she turns into a pumpkin simply for trying to defy them with an illusion of her own.
Darcy also shares her sisters' lust for power but she is the least likely to let it dominate her life, as she often makes remarks about the appearance and appeal of boys around her age much like any other teen would do. The most obvious case of this was with Riven back in Season 1 as she seemed genuinely attracted to him even while manipulating him after getting him to desert his friends in "A Friendship Sundered." Currently, the only moment of compassion Darcy shows for others is when she expressed concern for Riven's safety and saved him during the Race of the Rose. Even when she did not need to, Darcy made it a habit of taking Riven out on dates once they had become official, however, even her own affections do not make her any less ruthless compared to her sisters. In fact, they make her even more so as, once she gets over her affections for Riven, she tosses him aside like a tool that outlived its usefulness, even after Riven became convinced that she truly cared for him. Her interests in men tend to lie with genuine bad boys like how Riven was initially and, later, how Valtor was for most of Season 3. As the middle child of the trio, she is usually seen to be more close with Stormy rather than Icy, and can often end up as the butt of both of their jokes.
Though Darcy can be regarded as the quietest Trix witch, she is still very vocal towards obvious disrespect. While she greatly disliked Tritannus ever since they first met in the beginning of Season 5, this disdain for the triton prince only grew as he continued to ignore her and Stormy in favor of Icy. Eventually, she was the one to convince Stormy to leave him and even tried to convince Icy to do the same, showing that, in the end, the people she trusts most are her sisters. Even after Icy chose Tritannus over her own sisters, Darcy still went on to execute her plan with Stormy in the hopes of opening Icy's eyes once they ended up successful (without Tritannus).
Darcy appeared in the first episode An Unexpected Event as a spectral entity. Her actual physical appearance was in the following episode Welcome to Magix!. While Knut was telling Icy and Stormy of what happened, Darcy sensed Bloom's presence and divided herself. While her clone stayed behind, making it look like she never left, the real Darcy disappeared, reappeared right behind Bloom and attacked her. After Bloom was caught, Darcy was the second to attack her. After the Winx got away, she, along with Icy and Stormy, went back to Cloud Tower.
Darcy was used in yet another plot to steal the Ring of Solaria: To say that Prince Sky asked Stella out on a date (which was a trap). When Stella showed up without the ring, Darcy returned to Alfea disguised as Stella and attacked Bloom. A short while later she was found out and she dropped her facade. She returned to Cloud Tower with Icy, Stormy and the Ring of Solaria.
In Season 2, Darcy was disguised as a gypsy and hypnotized Jared into channeling her magic into the Magical Reality Chamber (again, though she did it the first time herself). She and her sisters were working for Darkar and tried to destroy the Winx. In the first season, she and her sisters would call them pixies, but now Icy and Stormy call them geeks, nerds, while Darcy calls them "teeny-boppers."
Darcy along with the rest of the Trix were sent to the Omega Dimension and freed Valtor and fought most of his battles. She also had small crush on Valtor and carved his face into a rock which made Icy and Stormy jealous and at the end she and the Trix were arrested for teaming up with Valtor.
In Season 5, The Trix later race with the Winx to find the Lilo plant to become more powerful but are defeated by the Believix powers of the Winx.
Darcy and the other Trix are seen in the prison of Andros where they meet Tritannus. After he turns into a monster by absorbing pollution from an explosion on an oil rig on Earth that spread through the oceans and reached his cell on Andros he and the Trix escape from prison together. In the episode "Return to Alfea", after receiving a power up from Tritannus, she was able to hypnotize Stella until she was distracted.
Darcy is not personally very keen on the idea of joining up with Tritannus, only doing so because it kept her out of prison. Her disgust grew once Tritannus achieved his demon form not to mention how Icy throws herself onto the guy. She is also beginning to show deep resentment to Icy ever since they teamed up with Tritannus, not liking the person she is becoming.
Darcy plants a curse on Tecna's phone. Darcy and her sisters go to Graynor to battle the Winx but they lose to the Rainbow Mantle. The Trix go to Gardenia to get more pollution for Tritannus but they lose to the Winx's new Harmonix powers.
Tritannus later grants Daphne's Sirenix powers to her and her sisters and they enter the Infinite Ocean. After that, Darcy and Stormy starts feeling like Icy and Tritannus don't even notice them (which ironically is correct) so instead of helping them to get seals from Pillars of Infinite Ocean, they decide to attack Melody and the posses the Singing Whales, which helps Tritannus and Icy to escape the Winx with seal from Pillar of Balance. Darcy tries to convince Icy to leave Tritannus, which she refuses to do. Knowing that she and Stormy failed to get respect from either Tritannus nor Icy, she grows bigger dislike of Tritannus and plans to double-cross him to get Icy back. When Winx destroy the final seal, Darcy believes that Tritannus has failed them (like Darkar and Valtor) so she and Stormy leave him and Icy behind. Later when Icy tries to steal Sirenix powers from Politea, Darcy and Stormy steals them instead right in front of her. She then gives Icy an ultimatum: either rejoin her sisters again, or stick with Tritannus. Darcy became angered when Icy chose the latter without hesitation, causing her and Stormy to abandon her in rage. Darcy and Stormy appears just in time to protect Icy from Tritannus, who is possessed by The Emperor's Throne's powers. Tritannus uses his powers to send all three of them away, leaving their current fate and location unknown.
Darcy once again, first appears as a spectral entity. She listens to Knut's description of Bloom. Afterwards, she is seen with the Trix attacking Bloom in Magix. Darcy copies herself in two and kicks Bloom from her hiding place.
She and her sisters continued their hunt for the dragon flame and suspected Bloom to be the Keeper of the Dragon's Flame. Their suspicions were correct after they had tested Bloom's power during the latter's simulation test by endangering Kiko's life.
With the Trix, she goes to Gardenia to search for Bloom and steals her power after revealing to her that she is the princess of Domino and that Daphne was her elder sister who sacrificed herself to save her.
Darcy and her sisters try to conquer the whole Magic Dimension and fight the Winx Club in a final battle, till she is trapped with Stormy. Later, they are sent to Fortress of Light by Faragonda and Griffin.
Darcy and her sisters are freed from the Fortress of Light by Darkar who gives them Gloomix powers and they become his servents, fighting the Winx and stealing the Codex from the Pixie Village under his orders but once Darkar turned Bloom into Dark Bloom and was about to enter the Relix dimension to seek the ultimate power the Trix told him that they expected him not to forget them and Darkar betrayed them by sending them back to the Fortress of Light.
After the Ancestral Witches are defeated by Bloom. The Ancestral Witches seek out for younger witches and find the Trix.
She returned again in the second movie, where she and sneaked into Alfea during the beginning of year festivities, putting a spell on all the food there so that everyone who ate some of it would turn into a toad, and stole a magical compass which they used to lead the Ancestral Witches to the Tree of Life, found in the Pixie Village. The Ancestresses proceeded to absorb all the essence of Good from the Tree, causing all good magic to disappear, and only dark magic to keep on existing. At the end of the movie, the Winx Club, the Specialists, Oritel and Erendor arrive at the haunted city of Havram to find the sapling of the Tree of Life which the Ancestresses gave to the king of Eraklyon as part of the deal which forced him to betray the promise he made to Oritel (that he would protect Domino against the Ancestresses) by allowing the three Ancient Witches to destroy Domino in exchange, they would spare Eraklyon.
There, the Trix and their Ancestresses were waiting for them, but the Winx Club girls gained back their powers and Bloom's horse, Peg, became a flying unicorn, thanks to the magical sapling, which restored all the Good Magic of the Magic dimension after being hit by an attack of Icy initially aimed at Bloom. Finding the Trix to be ineffective to defeat the Winx Club and as punishment for releasing the Good Magic, the Ancestral Witches try to possess the Trix, but as they attempt to flee the old witches capture them and possess their bodies.
The Trix, now possessed by their ancestors, have become more powerful than ever, as well as mere puppets possessed by the Ancestral Witches. The Winx, the Specialists, Oritel and Erendor take part in the battle, but Erendor is severely wounded trying to save Bloom from Icy-Belladone. Finally, using a Believix convergence, the Winx Club are able to summon the essence of the Great Dragon and extract the Ancestresses from the bodies of the Trix. Dragon Flames power destroys the Ancestral Witches for good, and the Trix, defeated, fall unconscious to the ground. Helia ties them with a rope and, as the movie ends, they are shown as being suspended from the flying ship the Winx, the Specialists, Oritel and Erendor use to leave Havram, getting angry as Bloom and her friends fly around them and tease them.
As revealed in Issue 27: Darko the Black, Darcy and her sisters, Icy and Stormy, hail from a realm known as the Ice Kingdom where they spent a majority of their childhood, during which, they befriended Darko, the only son of the powerful First Counselor Mazakis of the Kingdom's Royal Court.
Darcy often played with Darko alongside her sisters to the point of becoming his regular playmates and it was during this time that Darcy developed a bit of a crush on the young boy, unaware of his fondness for her elder sister.
Darcy makes her debut halfway into Issue 1: The Castle alongside her sisters, Icy and Stormy, waiting for Knut in an alleyway. She is pleased to see him arrive with Stella's sceptre in hand, only for their meeting to be interrupted by Bloom demanding that they return it to its rightful owner. Darcy and her sisters then attack Bloom, finding it foolish that she would take on three senior witches by herself and laughs when Bloom tries to use her magic in retaliation.
Things suddenly take an unexpected turn however when, as her sisters hold back Bloom's friends, Bloom emerges from Icy's ice transformed, prompting the Trix to retreat without the sceptre now that too many eyes were on them. This confrontation with the Winx soon leads them and the Trix to clash almost constantly throughout their school year; mainly boiling down to the Trix trying to sabotage an event, take advantage of group tensions between the girls or strike when one of them is alone all to get their hands on Stella's ring only for the Winx (mainly Bloom) to foil their plans and leave them humiliated.
In fact, the Trix are scolded and punished by Headmistress Griffin in Issue 5 after their plans to sabotage the Traditional Meeting Dance had failed and blew up in their face. As punishment, the Trix are made to polish the highest spires of Cloud Tower, with Darcy left to clean the roofs as her sisters stay to hold the ladder down.
Things quickly go awry when Icy and Stormy do more complaining than working, leaving the ladder without support, which causes it to fall over as Darcy is left hanging onto a bent piece of the spire's roof for dear life. Luckily, just as she loses her grip, Stormy "eases" her landing with a gust of wind, which also ends up picking up a familiar scent from Gloomy Wood Forest.
When the Trix take it upon themselves to investigate the source of the scent, the three come across a now-frightened Bloom and decide to take their chance at vengeance now that they have it. For her part of the spell, Darcy turns Bloom's body into a cloud of smoke to ensure that no one ever find her after Stormy had masked her scent. Once Icy traps Bloom's smoke body inside a nearby tree, Darcy taunts Bloom with her sisters by telling her that now she has plenty of time to do some self-reflection as no one will come to save her this time.
Darcy appears again in Issue 6 foraging for potion ingredients in the Black Mud Swamp with her sisters. Darcy quickly gets into a trivial argument with Stormy until they hear footsteps that seem to be heading in their direction, so the sisterly trio rush for nearby cover to hide and see who the footsteps belong to. It does not take long for the Specialists to appear from the thicket across from the Trix's hiding place and, upon remembering how the Specialists favor Alfea Fairies to Cloud Tower Witches, Icy gets the idea to charm them into forming an interest in them.
Unsure as to where Icy's plan is exactly headed, Darcy simply follows Icy and watches on confused as Icy fakes having a sprained ankle. Her confusion quickly turns into annoyance as she sees how quickly the Specialists directed all their attention to Icy, leading into another bout of squabbling with Stormy.
Eventually, Darcy approaches Riven, who had been standoffish the entire time, and asks him about it. When Riven claims that witches can just make easy cures for something as minor as a sprained ankle, Darcy goes on to explain how a witch's magic is made to solve completely different types of pain, such as the pain of not being loved or the pain of being left unappreciated despite one's true worth. Though he tries to maintain distance, Riven becomes enticed by Darcy's words, and tries to inquire more of how she can fix such a thing with her magic while Darcy leaves him hanging at every corner, making him more curious and desperate as she draws him closer.
However, the two are interrupted once they discover the skeletal remains of a saurodont, which prompts the Specialists into action. Before they can leave, Stormy demands that they not get left alone, which Riven uses as his chance to stay behind and learn more of how Darcy can help his plight, with Darcy being quick to catching onto his intentions. Before Darcy gets her chance to lure Riven in again, the Specialists catch sight of the Winx and a swamp monster that emerges from the river separating the two groups to attack them, leaving Darcy and her sisters completely ignored as Riven's desire to fight takes priority in his mind. She then watches on as Icy has Stormy create a raging storm fueled by Riven's energy to aid the swamp monster until Riven begins collapsing.
Once Riven stops showing signs of movement, Darcy demands for Icy and Stormy to stop before he dies and drops to his side to tend to him as she tells her sisters that they used too much of his energy. She becomes oddly defensive of Riven when Icy calls him a "silly boy" and insists that they could use Riven as an ally instead of wasting his potential with a one-off storm. She then decides to stay by Riven's side as her sisters leave before being seen by any of the Winx.
Once Riven regains consciousness, Darcy claims that he was knocked out by a bolt of lightning that struck the ground near them and helps him out of the swamp, completely unaware that Musa had been watching them from behind a nearby bush, becoming increasingly anxious at how close the two seemed to be.
The following issue opens up with the Trix bored in class as their professor, Bittersmoke tries to teach his class in vain. When Bittersmoke makes mention of some forbidden books that catch Icy's interests, Darcy simply claims to have not heard anything and resumes staring off into space.
After class, Icy tells her sisters of the forbidden books and her plan to use whatever is inside them to rule all of Magix on her own. Darcy catches this and reminds Icy that they all promised to rule Magix together, but Icy just continues bragging and Stormy wonders if one of the books contains a clue to the Dragon's Flame: the source of all magical energy that remains lost for centuries.
And so, later that night, Darcy and Stormy follow Icy as she explains how her plan will work. Eventually, the time comes where Bittersmoke begins sleepwalking, prompting the Trix to follow him to the chamber where the forbidden books are held. Once Bittersmoke leaves what seems to be a dead end, the Trix figure out how to activate the secret passage and arrive at a crypt underneath the library where all the forbidden books have been hidden away.
Inside the store room of forbidden books, Icy comes across a tome bound by iron and learns after many failed attempts that it is locked by an ancient spell. After more failed attempts, the Trix take the tome up to their dorm before they are caught to properly figure out how to open it. As Icy tries to figure out what the riddle could mean, Darcy simply starts dozing off until Icy starts attacking her and Stormy in an attempt to trigger the "true pain" needed to unlock the tome. This leads Darcy and Stormy into fighting Icy until a classmate comes by demanding that they stop all the racket.

Her hair was in an off black kept in a topnotch bun held by a lavender headband with a yellow stone in the middle of it. She had side bangs similar to her own but shorter by a few inches on her face.

She wore a purple shirt with ruffles at the ends, which was covered with a red shawl. She wore a headband with a yellow jewel and a yellow choker and chain necklace.

In Issue 123: The Spell of Time, Darcy disguises herself and her sisters as freshman fairies under Icy's orders so that they may freely walk around Alfea's campus without arousing suspicion.

As for her attire, Darcy wears a long-sleeved lilac top with dark purple stripes, purple jeans bound by a dark purple belt, and lilac shoes.
When the Trix fell into the river on Linphea that turns back time, they were transformed into their kid selves (roughly 11-14 years old). Darcy's hair is extremely short bob with bangs and is in a severe cut (similar to Griselda's) prompting Icy to say: "Your hair looked like that?!" (which does not make sense because Icy should have seen it if they were sisters. Of course, it is debatable if the Trix coven are actually biological siblings.
She wears a necklace, a pale-almost-pink purple midriff top tied at the end, a below-the-knee skirt and boots. She is shown wearing glasses, implying that she now wears contacts or used magic to cure it, though she still wears a smaller version in her civilian form.

Her powers are widely displayed in the episode "A Friendship Sundered", here it is revealed that she can hypnotize people. In the episode "The Fall Of Magix", it is shown that she can create vortexes and make rooms turn into darkness because her powers were powered by the Dragon's Flame at the time. In the episode "The Rose Festival" she hypnotizes Riven, a Red Fountain Specialist. In the original English, she brings him out of a coma. She also once used a cheat spell to get her & the other Trix out of the Detention Dimension. Their relationship was in the arc until the witches obtained the Dragon's Flame. Riven was a spy for Darcy and got information about Bloom for the witches. He, for most of the war, was prisoner in Cloud Tower.
