“Why the blade? Blades don’t need to recharge.”
Once a battlemage in the royal army, Doran now fights alongside the remnants of humanity for their very survival. While Doran can cast spells along with the best of wizards, he prefers his blade for close-in action. In the war against the orcs he learned the value of sharp steel, especially in protracted battles when the mind grows weary, and channeling spellpower becomes a herculean effort. A sword arm may tire as well, but adrenaline works better fueling muscles than spells. Doran is always ready to teach a little wizardry in exchange for lessons in bladework.
