In the children's story "Rikki-tikki-tavi" Darzee is a Tailor-bird and the helpful friend of Rikki who is the protagonist of the story. They must fight and defeat the King cobra Nag. A Tailorbird is from the warbler family. It is a small bird with a beautiful song.
In the garden of the bungalow Darzee is as much a hindrance in the struggle to defeat Nag and his wife as he is a help. He doesn't think things through and is very "flighty." His constant habit of leaving things half finished nearly ruin everything in the struggle of good and evil.
"Darzee also plays the role of a bard. He composes songs about Rikki-tikki-tavi’s showdowns against Nag and Nagaina, which are used to highlight Rikki’s heroic aspects."
