Bio:

Old wise man Dōraku is one of the hermits ( or maybe one of the Wandering Priests ) that live on the Mountains of Ice of the Celestial Territories of Ochalea. No one knows how he avoids all the dangers of the mountains but there are stories about Doraku fighting ogres hand to hand in his younger years.

Doraku doesn’t like to speak much and prefers to reamain neutral but cares for the safety and wellbeing of the ochaleans.

People who has been helped by Doraku or that have claim spoke to him, speak of his calmess and passive soft voice. He is usually walking with a walking stick and a small bag were he collects seeds, fruits, and roots.

In the past, Doraku fought Shan Hou-Yan on the Mountains of Ice and lost . He knows the secret location of the Village of Kasai.

Recently, Doraku fought a Fuyu Wamu near the Village of Howaito Rokku.

Durinf the events of the Lasimar Epic Final Game, Doraku is very happy of the outcome of the battle and gives the Band of the Wolf the location of his hut in the Mountains of Ice if they need to find him somewere in the future. " You have prove your worth and the value of your word. "

Doraku is a centipede spirit that has a mission on the Material Plane to punish Yeng Lo Zhung. He claims that the job is very difficult as his target can move from the Material Plane to the Shadow Lands at will, and he needs passage from other types of spirits. He speaks with a rough deep voice.

A giant monstrous centipede is fearsome enough; add a nine-eyed human head, a black cloud of poisonous fog, and a divine mission to punish the unjust, and it becomes a creature of nightmare. This is the spirit centipede. Spirit centipedes are poisonous shapeshifters that frequently administer punishments on behalf of greater spirits. In their natural form, they resemble enormous centipedes, 4 feet long for the greater variety. They have segmented bodies in bands of green, scarlet and silver, many legs, and two long feelers. Their heads are vaguely human in appearance, with bald pates, bushy mustaches, and nine eyes distributed evenly around the skull. Spirit centipedes speak Common and the Spirit Tongue.

During the events known as The Day of the Evil Swordsman, the Band of the Wolf have their third and final battle against Yeng Lo Zhung, The Dark Swordsman of the Nine Swords. Doraku, now in his real centipede spirit form, is able to bite for the last time and punish the evil samurai. He delivers in his bite the immortal’s justice with the help of a mortal, Troyus Bloodstone. " Like it was ordered by the immortals, for the transgression of violating the boundries of life, dead and the mortal’s world. " Both Doraku and Yeng Lo Zhung died.
