Darienís keeper and friend. The two had developed a trust that the Agency isnít completely happy with. While Darien would probably do anything she asked of him as a friend, she might not do anything the Agency asked her to do regarding him.
While Amanda doesnít quite trust her, Darien encourages her too, and by watching their relationship, has started to trust her own keeper.
Claire, as well as Richie, has been given specific orders in how to handle her kept, but disregards more than Richie has, and may very well choose Darien over the Agency.
