Ancient capital of the Doran Empire. Other worlds in this empire include Secharia and Glim.

Colonised in 929 AT by the Doran clade, using a ship of their own construction powered by antimatter gifted by GAIA. The Dorans are cyberdwarfs, humans tweaked for low height and reduced body mass. Most of the time the Dorans use massive neurally-linked exoskeletons (cybersuits) which increase their stature considerably and allow them to live and work in vacuum or a wide range of non-breathable atmospheres for extended periods. They can, however, remove themselves from these suits and live independently in standard hu-friendly environments.

Dorranok was originally a domed colony, covering most of this Hermian class world. Joined the Solar Dominion in 3890. In the aftermath of the Version War, Dorranok joined the Terran Federation. The world is now covered by a specialised canopy plant environment.
