Dorin only goes by his first name. He gave up his last name because of the disdain for his father. Dorin had a rough childhood and came from an abusive family. His mother was a full Changeling, his father was not and constantly ridiculed his mother and grew to distrust her. The family was not poor, however, and Dorin learned to deal with society among the merchants.

Dorin grew contemptuous of the merchant class because of their constant sucking up, then backstabbing their so called friends. The merchant class also figures themselves to be much more important than they really are, and Dorin developed a taste for knocking them down a peg or two without them knowing who did it.

Eventually his father was killed in a deal that was way above his head. This began to fire a hatred in Dorin and he began the path of the Assassin by coming to worship the goddess, The Raven Queen. A dutiful follower, Dorin is compelled to punish hubris where he finds it, and is always watchful for the cults of Orcus and stamp them out whenever they arise.

After Dorin’s assassination training through his guild, he began taking work as a caravan guard. This is what has led him to the small village of Harrington Head.
