Dorgann Klauser, also known as Drogan Klauser, is a non-player character from Final Fantasy V. He is Bartz Klauser's father whose exploits inspired Bartz to become an adventurer himself. A powerful warrior, Dorgann dedicated his life to protecting both his family as well as the world.



Dorgann is a gray-haired man who keeps his long hair in a pony tail. He has a gray mustache and wears blue armor and a violet cape. In his Yoshitaka Amano artwork he wields a silver longsword, black boots and tan trousers. His shoulder guard is in the shape of a skull of an animal and he is depicted besides the corpse of a monster. The sword Dorgann wields in his Yoshitaka Amano artwork is similar to one of the swords seen in the Onion Knight art from Final Fantasy III.


Dorgann cares deeply for both the safety of the world as well as the safety of his family, dedicating his life to the protection of both. He volunteered to watch over the seal of Exdeath and enjoys traveling with his son and loves his wife. Bartz yet feels he doesn't entirely know his father, sensing that he is harboring a secret of some kind.

Dorgann is Bartz's father and raised Bartz alone after the death of his wife, Stella. According to Bartz, Dorgann kept many secrets from his son. After Stella's death, they moved around until Dorgann fell terminally ill and died three years ago. His final wishes were to be buried next to his wife and for Bartz to explore the world.

Dorgann and his fellow Warriors of Dawn sealing Exdeath.

Dorgann was a member of the Warriors of Dawn from another world, who had sealed the evil sorcerer Exdeath thirty years ago inside a cave. Dorgann opted to remain on Bartz's world to watch Exdeath's seal while the other three Warriors returned to their world. When Exdeath's seal weakens and he breaks free, Bartz teams up with three others to become the Warriors of Light. When the Light Warriors pursue Exdeath to the Interdimensional Rift, Dorgann appears before them to give the new generation of Warriors the strength to fight and destroy Exdeath once and for all.
