Doan was the largest of the Hounds of Shadow,[1] and the first born to Rood and his original mate Pallick. Doan was described as being dark grey with one blue and one yellow eye.[2]

In Gardens of the MoonEdit

In 1161 BS, Doan and the other Hounds were summoned by Shadowthrone to eliminate a regiment of the Itko Kanese 8th Cavalry to disguise his and Cotillion's abduction of Sorry.[3] The Hounds killed 175 soldiers and 210 horses in the Itko Kan Massacre while suffering no casualties of their own.[4]

Two years later, when Quick Ben intruded in the Warren of Shadow, the Hounds were quick to confront him. He greeted each by name, including Doan, and they herded him to Shadowkeep for an audience with Shadowthrone.[5]

With Quick Ben's aid, all seven Hounds ran the trespassing puppet Hairlock to ground on the Rhivi Plain and tore him to pieces before confronting Ganoes Paran. Paran's life was spared by the intervention of the Tiste Andii, Anomander Rake. Rake slew Doan and Ganrod with his soul-stealing sword Dragnipur and drove off the others.[6]

Doan and Ganrod were later released into a gate to Kurald Galain by Ganoes Paran.[7]
