Lt. Darota is a Principality of Zeon officer who works under Garma Zabi. After Garma's death, Icelina Eschonbach comes to Garma's former headquarters and meets up with Darota so they can launch an attack of revenge on White Base. They do so, with Darota in charge of the main ACA-01 Gaw in charge of the attack. When the RX-78-2 Gundam attacks the Gaws, he is seriously wounded and dies when Icelina takes over for him and crashes the Gaw into the Gundam. Darota was loyal both to Garma and Icelina, but unfortunately ends up losing his life because of it. The events of his teaming up Icelina and his death do not occur in the Mobile Suit Gundam compilation movies, though it was likely he died off-screen at some point.
