Race Black poplar treefolk
Birthplace Great Forest,[1] Lorwyn–Shadowmoor
Lifetime Unknown

Doran, the Siege Tower, was an immense black poplar treefolk from the plane of Lorwyn.[2] He was incredibly huge, and had picked up a wide array of magical knowledge in his travels across the plane. Doran seems to feel at home in many different settings, most likely a result of his far wanderings. It is thought that his wayfaring ways led to the collection of diverse magics that he combined into his own unique magical style. Doran used obscure shamanic magic to turn the natural durability of treefolk into their greatest advantage, and was able to share this boon with his allies.
