Darrah Karys was a Bajoran female of the Ih'valla caste who was married to Darrah Mace. They had two children, Darrah Nell and Darrah Bajin, by 2318.

Karys argued with Mace many times as she felt he was too dedicated to his job in the Korto City Watch and didn't spend enough time at home. In 2323, she finally left him because of the Tzenkethi attack on Bajor and moved to Valo II with the children. The couple soon got divorced, but they still talked and Karys tried to get Mace to move to Valo II, which he refused to do. Eventually, he did go to Valo II and Karys was overjoyed to see him.
