Doirmanes is slender, young and pretty.
Whilst Sevanna is visited by Therava and her gai'shain Galina Casban, Doirmanes is one of twelve gai'shain who replace the gai'shain that had attended Sevanna during the night. Doirmanes takes Faile Bashere's place. Because of his loyalty to Sevanna, Faile believes Doirmanes would have to be killed if he learned about the oaths of fealty that other gai'shain have sworn to her.
Doirmanes is noted as one who started weeping even before a beating began.
