Star Ocean: Fantastic Space Odyssey/First Departure
Dorne is a Fellpool from the village of Kratus, on the Muah Kingdom. He is a best friend of Roddick and Millie since childhood, and defends the village along with them in the Kratus Brigade. As time passed by, he started to grow feelings for Millie, and jealousy of Roddick, as he has the idea that something is going on between the two.
During the events of the game, Dorne is infected by the petrifying virus of Coule, and along with Roddick and Millie, he heads for Mt. Metorx in search for Metorx Herbs, so as to cure the village of the disease. Upon reaching the summit, the three find the Earthlings Ronyx and Ilia, who offer to help curing Dorne and the population of Roak.
Onboard the Calnus, Dorne is diagnosed and investigated, helping in the analysis of the virus. Finding that he has little time before being petrified, Dorne asks to be laid on his own bed to die.
He is seen again after Roddick returns to Roak with the serum for the disease and heals Dorne.
