He is a man with combed gelled hair and a moustache. He has tan skin and wears an elegant shirt with puffy white sleeves and the base being red on the outside with black as the center and a blue cape and matching red pants.
He is a narcisstic egotistical snobby person who loves rubbing his social status, wealth, and class in the face of others. He is sophisticated and knows many things regarding manners and how to act at social events. He puts up a front of sophistication, composure, and jolliness but it becomes evident how self absorbed he is. He also tends to be sarcastic, especially to those he sees as lesser than him. However, he is also sneaky and cruel as he sold scrap metal to Mechanicles for him to build his inventions despite the fact he knew Mechanicles would use it to destroy Agrabah.
Daru Tavelevil is a merchant and one of the Sultan's guest at the palace dining room seen talking about art, impressing Jasmine with how cultured he is. Aladdin tells everyone that he's an adventurer, saying that he fought a giant dancing rhino. While he and Abu pretend to fight, Aladdin accidentally makes a mess in front of everybody; including Daru as well (all burned, smudged, and messed up), to his annoyance.
The next night, at the palace dining room, Aladdin (now learning to be as cultured as Daru and having his hair combed and slicked exactly like his own hair) and the others are eating with the same guests from before. Daru and the other guests are now impressed with the street rat. Later, Aladdin and his friends try to investigate a giant centipede which has been shooting fire on sand in the desert, thus, turning sand into glass. The centipede reveals itself to be another one of Mechanicles's inventions with Mechanicles himself controlling it with the intention of "ironing the desert." After Mechanicles captures Aladdin and his friends, he reveals that Daru had sold him the iron; making the gang realize that the merchant sold out Agrabah to get rich. Iago also reveals that his charm is also a surreptitious fraud he picked up the same way Aladdin picked up his cultured behavior. After foiling Mechanicles' plans, Razoul makes Daru put broken pieces of the centipede in a cart as punishment for his treason, while Aladdin, Jasmine, and Abu are watching, making Aladdin sarcastically state that it'll take him about "ten or fifteen years" to clean this mess up.
