Darbie O'Brien is one of the three main characters of Just Add Magic along with her two best friends: Kelly and Hannah.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Darbie has a freckled face, light blue eyes and is mostly seen wearing her red hair loose. She also sometimes wears it in pigtails, a ponytail, or half up, half down.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Darbie is a fun character. She is immature from time to time, but is a great person to spend time with. She is shown to be very determined when she puts her mind to it, but she never puts her personal interests above those of her friends. Although at first Darbie doesn't appear to be as good at solving problems as the other two girls, she is revealed to have many clever ideas and to be very logical. 

History[edit | edit source]

Darbie met Kelly and Hannah in kindergarten. The three of them were at Mama P's. She was taking her food back to her table while walking backwards when she accidentally bumped into Kelly. Hannah appeared with an extra shirt to replace the one Darbie had spilled food on. They instantly clicked and became inseparable. Later on they forget their friendship, so Jake helped them reenact this moment to get their memories back.

While in seventh grade, Kelly, Hannah and Darbie find a magical cookbook in Kelly's attic. They are unaware that it is magical at first, and cook Shut 'Em Up Shortcake without knowing that it will literally shut up whoever eats it. Darbie puts in the Cedronian vanilla, so she suffers the downside of not being able to stop talking. This is fixed by Kelly.

Throughout the first season, Darbie is instumental in figuring things out about the book and the secrets behind it.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Kelly Quinn[edit | edit source]

Kelly is one of Darbie's best friends. Darbie gets along very well with Kelly and always tries to help her out the best she can. Although they have rough times in their friendship, the girls are inseparable. 

Hannah Parker-Kent[edit | edit source]

Hannah is Darbie's other best friend. At first, the girls seem like polar opposites: Hannah being very precise and Darbie being more carefree. Even the girls thought for a time that they wouldn't have been friends if Kelly hadn't been holding them together. However, the girls balance each other out and are great friends. Hannah acts as a voice of reason for Darbie and Darbie helps Hannah to relax and take things easy. Hannah even takes charge of Darbie's things.
