The half-orc blackguard is a man more comfortable with action than words. When pressed, he gruffly alludes to an act of betrayal that set him upon a bloody path of vengeance with the assistance of his patron, Ur-Gothoz. Since eliminating those who betrayed him, he has continued to spread chaos, death, and destruction at his dark patron's behest. While Dorn seems to revel in carnage and bloodshed, when he speaks of his work for Ur-Gothoz, you believe you detect a note of dissatisfaction in his voice.

Ending Storyline:
With no one to temper his wrath, it was inevitable Dorn would come to a bad end. Though he escaped the wrath of the gods, there were others whose retribution could not be avoided. Hunted down and captured by a "Freelance Jurist," Mercy Whitedove, he was taken back to Luskan to stand trial. He was found guilty of the mass slaughter of every man, woman, and child in a village called Barrow, where his dark path began. Sentenced to death, Dorn broke free of the prison on three occasions before the sentence could be carried out. Twice, he was tracked down by Whitedove and returned. For their final meeting, Dorn was determined not to be taken alive, and in this respect he was successful. To save her own life, Whitedove was forced to slay the so-called "Butcher of Barrow." Tales of Dorn Il-Khan were told for decades after, both by parents with unruly children in need of discipline and by those vile men and women who admired the half-orc's deeds.

Ending Storyline (Romanced):
To this day, tales of Dorn Il-Khan and Charname are told, both by parents whose unruly children need some discipline and those vile men and women who admired the malevolent pair's deeds. Their relationship was a tempestuous one, with each vying to control the other at every turn. Though they successfully evaded the wrath of the gods, Dorn and Charname would find it more difficult to escape mortal justice. Dorn was captured by a woman named Mercy Whitedove and taken to Luskan, where he was tried for the mass slaughter of the village of Barrow. Charname executed Dorn's daring and bloody escape, after which they spent several years avoiding Whitedove and other bounty hunters. Given their temperaments, the end of Dorn and Charname's relationship was perhaps inevitable. After their umpteenth escape from the implacable Whitedove, the tension between them exploded into violence. Left with little choice, Charname slew Dorn and disappeared into the shadows of history.
