The Lost Nemedian Chronicle
Doran the Black
Leader of the Black Dragons
Doran Pallantides Caecilus
Leader of the black dragons, the imperial guard of Aquilonia. Formally titled Chief Praetor, leader of the Praetorians, everyone knows them as the Black Dragons. They dress only in ceremonial black laminated scale mail, giving them the appearance of black skinned dragonborn. Doran carries the dragonhelm, a mark of office. He actually recruits dragonborn into the black dragons because they make good soldiers. Sometimes referred to as Doran the black because he’s an asshole.
Pardoned by Conan after the old king died.
Sits on the Imperial Consulate. Controls the palace in the physical sense.
