Dorman Heraklid was a descendant of the war hero of the Faloran Civil War, Veronica Heraklid. He used his lineage to boost his political station far beyond what his natural abilities would otherwise have allowed. Nonetheless, despite the infamous nepotism associated with his family, he was a capable man, and a minister of the Republic both under Consul Dermeticus and under the Triumvirate.

Though much of the Great House of Heraklid remained loyal to Radiance, those who did not found themselves as fierce Republican patriots, sworn to destroy or convert the loyalist vestiges of Heraklid in Varantium.
