He and his men were once under the command of Colonel Kurzen on an expedition into Stranglethorn Vale until the Colonel and his closest followers descended into madness. Doren and a few others rebelled and set up a small camp further to the north, where they aimed to find out what caused Kurzen's madness and to stop him.

As the highest ranking officer of the camp, he was eager to learn who discovered the true allegiance of Private Thorsen when he was infiltrating Kurzen's Compound and believed that Bookie Herod might have had a hand in it.

He would trade supplies with Krazek in Booty Bay.[1]


Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

After the Cataclysm, though Kurzen is dead, Doren tasks adventurers with finding out what caused Kurzen's death, to kill his second-in-commands and to rescue men and women that have been captured at Kurzen's Compound.

With the help of Alliance adventurers, Doren successfully repelled a Zandalari troll attack during the war against the Zandalari.

Doren was promoted to Captain. He is the leader of Thunder Hold and Strongarm Airstrip. According to his logs, his negative emotions have been magnified by the Sha. Ironically, he recognized that he was somehow following a similar spiral into darkness that Kurzen had. After the Horde assault Thunder Hold and Strongarm Airstrip, he is slain in the Den of Defiance by Horde adventurers in the quest H [86] The Darkness Within.
