Doran was a prisoner from Kalkos who had been imprisoned for fifteen years, not seeing the sun or a woman in that time, and been told he would never see the sun again. He noted his problem was always women and that he didn't like them. He was among the prisoners freed by Grose and taken to Sardos to form his new army to take over the Federation. Doran recalled spending his time in prison dreaming of being a starship commander and committing every crime imaginable but realised it didn't have the same appeal if someone actually wanted him to do it.

He encountered Vila on the transport ship approaching Sardos and, unaware he had just teleported aboard, assumed he was a fellow prisoner from Kalkos who had stowed away aboard. He took Vila under his wing and tried to defend him when Tarrant tried to force him to go with him. Doran came off worse in the encounter but Vila chose to accompany Doran to the new recruits' camp, where they were issued with uniforms, guns and bedding. When Servalan was handed over to the men on Moloch's orders, Doran left her with Vila.

On realising Vila had disappeared, Doran went to see Chesil demanding to know what had happened to him. They saw Vila and Tarrant on the monitor, with Doran recognising Vila even though he was helmeted because he dropped his gun, and went to join them in breaking into the computer room where Avon and Dayna were being held prisoner. While Tarrant took care of Grose and Lector, Doran casually killed two troopers who had already surrendered, claiming the gun went off in his hand. He and Chesil made to leave the room but were killed by a charge from Moloch. (C: Moloch)
