Doran was a native Athosian farmer with several seemingly useful results.
In 2004, he offered to provide the Manarians those skills for a section of their land on Manaria. He is also one of the few Athosians who knew the access code to deactivate the shield of Atlantis' Stargate, in case of an emergency. Smeadon, the Manarian leader secretly worked with the Genii, to take Atlantis during the Lantean storm. Smeadon got him drunk, so that he can give away the code. After Sora Tyrus and Acastus Kolya questioned him, it is unknown what happened to him. (SGA: "The Storm")
