Dark seems like a cool-headed guy, albeit rather insulting at times. He has a short temper though, quickly losing the calm facade and becoming quite the agressive opponent.
Nitro V. Kaian
Being captured by The Marines for killing a high ranking captain in the navy, Dark was held prisoner on a ship heading for Impel Down until Nitro dropped in and made deal with him to join his crew and become his first mate. After Nitro and Dark took out the navy ship, Dark and Nitro had grown a respect for one another; growing a strong, subtle bond with Nitro V. Kaian. Even though that bond may be there, Dark also has to make sure his captain doesn't do anything reckless.
The two of them met on board a Marine Ship that Nitro was fighting against, he picked up Dark while on the ship because he was held captive. Max found Dark and the two of them helped clear the way for Nitro to fight their Captain, one-on-one. It wasn't until they got back to the ship, and began to argue over which of them defeated the most Marines, did their rivalry spark.
The two haven't had much interaction but it's assumed he tolerates Zinzuki.
While originally opposed to her being on the Noir Lightning, he seemed to have gotten over it, realizing how useful she can be.
He disliked Blixx at first for the sole fact that he was a Marine, and still does but has accepted that Nitro has made him their crew's captain.
Viu E. Blaze
Dark and Viu did not interact much, though they at least know that the other exists.
It can be assumed that the two were very close since Elden did save Dark's life and then taught him the Drag-Bo Style, which Dark wants to prove is the best in the world.
