Doryen was born to a coastal clan of lizardfolk called the Ulhar-Mekisr, or Blue Cliff - named for both the terrain separating the beach from the rest of the mainland, and for the color of the ancient blue dragon who semi-adopted the clan when it was just starting out.
While Doryen's clan wasn't unfamiliar with magic, and even presumably had a few sorcerers, they had never had any with wild magic before. For a while, the side-effects that came with Doryen's spellcasting were simply unusual, but eventually an incident occurred that drove Doryen and his clan to decide he needed a tutor. He was sent out to find a particular mage, and was accompanied by Virga, a genasi beginning her own training as a druid. When they reached the tutor's residence, however, they weren't there.
Doryen and Virga continued traveling, eventually ending up in the city of Alu Lyth.
Confident to the point of occasional arrogance, sociable but a bit awkward, adores metaphors and idioms but never uses them correctly. More as the game progresses~
- Pipes of the Sewers - A set of panpipes decorated with cavorting rats, and designed to be attractive to them as well. These panpipes are intended to call and command a swarm of rats, and can also force a wererat to transform (or undo this induced transformation). Doryen received them from Alice in exchange for the party stopping Auntie’s grung from releasing a transformed Camden (who Alice had captured and delivered to them) on Alu Lyth.
- Doryen's name is Draconic for "afternoon"
- Doryen and, presumably, his clan's, colors and pattern are based on the marine iguana.
